When you are a homeschool mom, there really is no such thing as “me time”. My entire day, every day, is lived around the needs of my kiddos. Right now, they are ages 9, 7, 6 and 3. Which means there is an ever present need for adult supervision. Translated: I’m with them from the time my hubby goes to work until they finally go to sleep.
I love my kiddos. I love homeschooling. I also love getting lost in a project without interruption. At least, I think I do. It’s been so long…
I don’t want to lose myself in my family. One day, the kids will grow up and have families of their own, and it will just be me and the hubby. I need to hold onto my sense of self, because I will need it again. Someday.
So I’m looking to add something to our lives (No, not another baby… I’m getting too old for that). Something just for me. I’m not sure what it is, or how it will come about. But I need this. Whatever ‘this’ proves to be.
What do you do, just for yourself?
