Falling Down

You may be wondering where I've been at.

I seem to have fallen off the blogospere.
Leaves are falling and we can't keep up with them...
the rider is busted, which we we were using to mulch the leaves quickly
and get the nutrients back into the drought ridden ground anyway.
Work has us feeling like the movie Ground Hog Day lately.
Get up early, face the same issues. get home, more work to do.
Try to get to bed early to rest.
The next morning feels like a broken record.
The kids have an overwhelming amount of homework to do and always need help.
We help them every day, but 3-4 hours a night in 4th grade wears you down, man.
Not even joking on that.
(BTW, textbook companies need to seriously reconsider the weight
of these books these kids carry home every day).
It seems there has been little time to devote to my little blog as of late.
What is down the road for me?
Hopefully, sunshine.
As soon as I turn the corner, and pop out of my funk,
I'll do my best to prepare
for the holidays in a proper festive manner.
I feel it is near, I just have to shove myself through this rough patch.
Please bear with me, folks!

sorry you've been like a hamster on a wheel! hope it gets a bit better soon!

beautiful photos Andrea. I hear you on the leaves AND the homework. I'm not in favor of all the homework the schools pile on kids. it's too much and they don't have time to relax or sleep, let alone have fun. I don't know the answer but I know it's hard on parents and the kids. Don't stress over the and jump in them!

Hi Andrea

I have really missed you and am glad that all is ok with you and your family,

that's us mums aways running and racing!!

I love the photo of your little darling, she is gorgeous.

Take care of yourself and take some time for you.

We will all be here when you come back to blogland.

Sounds like your pretty overwhelmed...hopefully you can slow down n take it one day at a time. Love your fence pics. BTW 4 hrs of homework a nite is so overkill!!! said...

Andrea love the post with your sweet little Honey sitting on the fence.

Great Photos.

May you be back soon since you have been so busy.

I will keep you in my prayers.

Pam said...

Sounds like you have a lot going on there. Four hours of homework is enough to kill anyone. Great photos of your daughter!

I remember how I felt when I was where you are now. Many nights I would fall into bed wondering how I would have the strength to do it all again in the morning. Somehow I did and now, believe it or not, I would give anything to go back and do it all again. Hang in there. I'd make you a pot of soup if I could. :o)

I know exactly what you mean. I have a 1st, 3rd and 5th grader and all the moms have said the homework load has gotten bigger. All the testing mean less work is being done in the classrooms, but more is expected of both the students and the teachers. Good luck, a good mom is one that is helping even when it takes so much out of us.

Here's hoping the rest of those leaves blow away never to return until Spring. Hope you get to have more free time soon. The pics were just awesome! Take care, Janice

Fiona said...

Hope all is well Andrea and that things are going well for you

I am wondering how you are doing? I remember well those days of helping the kids with the homework. I do hope that this time of rest helps you and that you come back refreshed and good as new. I am in need of a blogging break soon too. Take care,
