I was talking with a friend on the phone
the other day. She also homeschools. We were saying how it
seems impossible to do school and chores well, and something fun on the
same day. We can manage to get 2 of those things done well, but
not all 3. So if we want to do something fun or crafty or out of
the home, we feel like we have to do less school or less chores to get
Is this true for everyone? Or are we somehow just "challenged" in this way?
Anyone got any insights? I'm really wondering because I'm trying
to keep up with school and chores and still get Christmas stuff
done. But the Christmas stuff isn't getting done unless I let
chores or school slide a bit that day. And if it's really true
that I can only do 2 of the 3 things in one day, then I may go ahead
and start our Christmas break a week earlier than I intended to.
