Manic Monday

The cross
February 2007

It may be the six days of homeschooling that have finally caught up with me tonight (yes, I said 6 not 60). I feel like such a lightweight. While my kids are doing well (I think), I am exhausted and in need of rest...again. That seems to be happening a lot lately.

You know how some people do Wordless Wednesday's on their blogs? I could NOT wait that long...this is my MANIC MONDAY post. I think this could catch on too! This image seemed appropriate for what I am needing today, along with the few extra hours of sleep that I have been depriving myself of lately. I am a notorious night owl which doesn't mix well with my new "teacher" hat I am trying on these days! Some habits are going to have to change to keep this crazy pace.

For the record, I am not having a MANIC MONDAY post every week. I can be very resilient and will only use it when necessary.

Hi Anna,

I came across you from a comment you made on someone's blog I visit. You have some great pictures here. I'll be sure to visit regularly :)

I stay up waaaaay too late reading blogs, which is always a problem on days when I have to work. I think we both need to develop some self-control, huh?

Hi Anna! I am so glad you found my blog today, thanks for your encouraging words!!!

This post made me laugh! I am not a homeschooling mom, but my hat goes off to you because I know how much work goes behind it!

Anna said...

Remember the song by the Mamas and the Papas.... or perhaps you're too young....

Monday, Monday, so good to me
Monday mornin', it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday mornin', Monday mornin' couldn't guarantee
That Monday evenin' you would still be here with me....

Annie said...

Hi Anna and it's so nice to meet you and see your blog. You have some really wonderful photos here. And I see a theme in your comments - you're tired, so tired.

..."the Office" does indeed rock;)

Dwight is one of my favorite characters on there as well.

Linked to you from BL's blog. Nice pics. Very simple yet creative. I love the cross. I may start collecting them. Doesn't blogging make the distance across the "pond" seem a lot closer? Good luck with the home schooling.

Beautiful image!

anna, i still find it remarkable that the very tool we ever dreamed up to kill each other on, should be such a symbol now of hope......

Lucy said...

Hi Anna,
That's a very pretty pic. Hopefully your manic Monday went well and you are catching up on your sleep!

Whew, How do you do it? Homeschooling is a real commitment. Hang in there and get some rest. This blogging is very addictive and time comsuming but so much fun.

Anna said...

Thanks to you all...I am feeling much better today!
I appreciate all your comments!

Hi Anna! I am so glad you found my blog today.
Nice image of the cross.I like the details and contrasts.Well done!

Carol said...

I found my way via David...I commend any one who takes on the mammoth task of home schooling...appears to be all the go in the US, not too much or I haven't heard of too many who tackle it in Australia...

I am a night owl myself not in bed much before 2am and up at 7 most mornings..

Jamie Dawn said...

Well, by now, I'm sure your mania has lessened, or at least I HOPE it has. :)
Get to bed earlier, Anna!
