I. Need. To. Plan. SOMETHING!!!!

This is usually the time of year when I browse curriculum sites . . . spend long leisurely days at used bookstores cultivating just the right reading lists . . . put mountains of books on reserve at all of the local libraries. 


You know, it's almost time for the beginning of the new school year, but this year I'm not a Homeschool Mom.

I'm the Mom of a college student and in a strange and unusual twist of fate, I'm a college student again myself.

I've been trying to convince Baby Boy that college isn't really all it's cracked up to be and that we should maybe do just one more year of high school to be sure he has all of his bases covered.  He's not buying it. 

Right now I'm supposed to be writing a research paper, but my mind keeps wandering to the local teacher supply store where they have all of those beautiful, informative, colorful, educational posters.  They would look so lovely in our classroom.  Every.  Single.  One.  of them.  I always enjoyed decorating our classroom each year with a different educational theme. 

If anyone has any spare kidletts they want me to teach, I'm available.  Oh, I don't feed, cook, or clean - only teach, LOL.  

So while lesson planning and curriculum researching may seem stressful to you other Homeschooling Moms, believe me it's not nearly as stressful as not lesson planning and curriculum researching.   


By the way, if anyone wants to help me compare and contrast the central conflicts in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button the book versus the movie, feel free to drop me a line.  I'm simply not focused enough today.

Until next time . . .

Shall we bang our heads on the wall together? Maybe make a song out of it? Start a new self-help group: "Planners Anonymous"?

Paula said...

I'll join the planner anonymous. (HUGS) I'm only a few years behind. Maybe that's why I continue to buy books on things I know my ds will NEVER be interested in, so I can plan my own education after he's off to college.

Perhaps you should start a counseling service. :(

oh if only we lived closed to each other... you would have a class full of littles.

Could you come over to my house and help me get things organized? I'll tie dye some stuff for you and bake cookies and cook some really good stuff.

I am overwhelmed looking at everything that needs to be done with me still laid up.

Meanwhile, I'm a retired homeschooling mom, too. I figure since I can no longer tell either kid what to do (okay, well, I can tell them but they probably won't listen) I'm officially done with the whole homeschool thing.

We need some sort of retired homeschool mom vacation spot.

You sound like you might need to become a preschool teacher! =)

I guess empty nest syndrome applies to homeschool too. If you were closer, I'd hire you to whip my teen into shape in a heartbeat!

If you want you can go to the supply stores for me. :) They don't have those here and I REALLY miss them.

Oh - what a great offer! We would like you to teach our children! Too bad you live so far away....
