I’m trying something new. We’re homeschooling for three weeks and then taking a week “off” so I can plan, reevaluate, and organize. Maggie (16) and Joshua (13) are helping with the little ones as much as possible while I work. I’ve been truly overwhelmed with the reality of homeschooling three kids (high school, junior high, and elementary) while caring for a baby these last six months. It’s been CRAZY. I’m a pretty positive and optimistic person and I don’t generally show the burden I’m under until I’m about to break (!) so I haven’t talked much about this aspect of my life here on the blog. I have tried, and basically failed, doing all the work (of planning and such) on weekends, so when the idea came to me last week that I could have a three weeks on, one week off, schedule – I became really excited! I’ll let you know how it goes. So far this week I’ve organized the book cabinet and have planned about half of the school subjects for the next three weeks. We’ve also gone to the library to get the books we will need. I still have a fair amount of work to do, though.
So, a friend posted the inside of her refrigerator the other day and I thought it’d be fun to share mine, too. :) I love seeing people’s spaces and how they live! Here is mine:
I’ve been using baskets (from the dollar store) in the refrigerator for over a year now – I love them! They help keep things that would otherwise slide around (like string cheese and yogurt tubes) in one place. We have a fair amount of leftovers right now, which is great because it means hot lunches! The bottom right drawer is where my husband’s lunches are kept but since it’s the end of the week, it’s empty.
Lots of jams and condiments. A few juices and a diet soda (my husband’s vice!) Trader Joe’s pickles and cinnamon rolls on the second shelf. And two prescription bottles of Samuel’s Prednisolone under the butter.
I’d love to see your refrigerator! ^_^
Okay, I could use some help with water. Why can’t I drink as much as my body needs? :( I am chronically dehydrated. How do you get in your daily water? Help! And happy Friday!
