I am sorry it has taken so long for me to write a new post, my dears. Once you hear about everything that’s been going on, I’m hoping you’ll understand.
The day after I wrote the post about why we wanted to move into an RV, we got word that McGyverAsawa’s work would be cutting hours for nearly everyone. (That’s factory work for ya’!) He was kept on, because they didn’t want him to pavement looking for work else where, but, at the time, we weren’t sure how things would go. Basically, we were given a two (or was it three?) week notice that money was about to get tight. As if it wasn’t already tight, after all the expenses incurred in our moving. So, it was off to Mom’s driveway.
Along with all the back and forth we’ve been living, lately, there’s been the beginning of Homeschool for the year. I’ll soon post about this year’s schooling on my other site: https://caballerohomeschool.wordpress.com/
So, we’ve been doing a lot of bouncing around, and we’ve begun homeschool this year, and I’ve taken on the role of Head Coordinator for the Central Georgia Christian Home Educators’ Association (a Christian Homeschooling group in our area). This means we’ve got to make appearances at events and such, and there are meetings to attend. In a way, I feel as if I should be doing more, as far as the position is concerned. Yet, I’ve not figured out what that more should be.
When I try to put it all down on paper, it seems there isn’t much to say about it. However, it’s all pretty time consuming… Which means my living area could use a little TLC.
This brings me to this coming weekend. THE Weekend. The weekend that I will finally get my home cleaned appropriately, and purge those things that should never have been packed on board in the first place. It’s the weekend that I swap out some of our summer clothes, for some of our winter clothes. I will not be putting away all of our summer clothes, as the weather hasn’t changed completely, yet. Also, some of the fall/winter clothes would be too warm for the current weather. I just feel I need to go through them all, in order to get an idea of what we need/don’t need.
I have been given anxiety meds. because, and I’m sure some of you remember, I spent three months trying to figure out what the heck was wrong with me over the summer. Panic attacks finally made the doctor believe it was all anxiety, and he gave me something that worked. The problem is that it worked so well that I started to forget to take it. I’ve been off schedule with it now for about a month. I have a feeling that my doc. is going to be very unhappy with me. The other problem with the meds working: Now that I’m off them, it’s hard to get motivated to get back on them. Yeah, it’s kind of a catch-22. For those of you who pray, please pray for my family and me, in regards to this situation.
I must say, I am happier with all the busy I’ve got going on. This is another catch-22. I get really busy and I don’t have time to think about my anxiety. (It really does get debilitating… and it isn’t something I can just “get over,” as many folks think one can.) However, when I get too busy, or when things don’t happen in an ideal manner, I start to get overwhelmed and upset, which causes a panic attack. (It’s a little more complicated than all of that, but I’m not ready to post any more detail about it all, for the world to read, at this point and time.)
Another thing I’m struggling with, and need prayer for: Daily Devotion and Bible Study Time. We do a little Bible Study for our Homeschool, but I need more. Recently, a friend told me about an android app called Daughters of the King. It links to a website with daily devotionals. I’ve found that I’m reading more devotionals, now that I carry it with me on my phone. I need to get one of those Bible apps, as well. Perhaps I’d do a bit more reading of that, were it on my phone.
To summarize: We’re busy. We’re Homeschooling. I’m struggling. We’re all pretty happy. Please pray for us. Don’t forget to read my next post. I’ll try to post at least once a week (I’m also going to try to post on the homeschooling website at least once a week)…
Happy Trails, to you and yours, until we meet once more.
