Lesson Plans and Planning for Weakness


I’m sitting here with dye in my hair and moisturizer on my face looking through the homeschool websites and curriculum lists that in February I swore were a part of my past. I’ve got 35 minuted until I have to rinse out the goo on my head to figure out what we’re doing for Algebra II this year.
And I keep wondering how the heck I’m here again, and swearing for the 15th year in a row that this year will work out a little better. This will be the miraculous year where I finally make a lesson plan that we stick to, the year we will be as organized as people assume we must be, and the year that I recognize my Seasonal Affective blah blah blah enough to schedule nothing for late Jan-February.

I’m the 40-something-ish wife of my beloved Computer Guy.

I’m the adoring and incredibly proud mom of nine children…two saints…seven in training.

I’m my brothers’ sister and my parents’ daughter.

I’m a devout Catholic, an avid political junkie, able debater, aspiring home-maker, amazing friend, and I make the meanest Chicken Fried Steak you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating.

I’m a homeschooling guru, a writing addict, a sometimes public-speaker, and an advocate for staying true to the person God created you to be.

I can’t live in a house with white walls, sing Billy Joel songs while I wash the dishes, will read anything you put in my hands, and am completely obsessed with rhinestones and cute shoes.

I am just like moms the whole world over, and then some.
