This month, next month, and the next feel crazy to me as I look over my schedule for the next three months. This morning I am updating my many calendars, trying to figure out when to do my monthly grocery shopping, and realizing my daughter has a dentist appointment at the end of the month. CRAZY!!!!
I’m an introvert. Having a full calendar is not fun for me. It makes me jumpy. Also, I still have to find time to homeschool.
I have to remind myself that it’s okay to say no.
No to a party.
No to this.
No to that.
Yes, it’s good to get out of the house. Good to visit family and good to volunteer at church.
It’s also okay to carve out time in your schedule to just stay home. To have a jammie day and read books together. Good to just lay on the couch after church and watch a movie. Also, homeschooling will be a priority in the next couple of years and we will have to stay home. Because, it’s homeschooling! 🙂
As the holidays start to approach I will start to be very selective in what we do. It just has to be like that sometimes.
