A short update

This week I'm trying to get back into teaching Bethany. She is such a great learner and has really excelled under my mom's tutelage. {no shock there} It's been a difficult week. Since I'm striving to do more, I'm faced with the reality that I physically can't keep up and I'm failing. This is just a season and hopefully a season that is close to an ending.
I keep telling myself I'm doing my best, so no guilt. As long as I can take care of the kids and do school with Bethany that is all that matters. The laundry is piling up, the kitchen is dirty, no room is exempt form looking like a bomb went off, but the kids are fed and dressed!
I can't even bear to think about puting up a Christmas tree, we always get a real tree and I'm dreading hanging the lights on it. I can't wait for it to be up so we can admire it, but I'm so not ready for all the work. I'm trying to slowly decorate here and there for Christmas.
I've been taking iron and chlorophyll for a week now and can't tell any difference. I requested to be switched to Synthroid versus the generic Levo or the natural thyroid replacement. So I just started that this morning. Maybe in a week or so, I will be able to tell a difference.
Thank you all for your encouragement! I really appreciate it. I had the opportunity to get out of the house last night and spend some time with 2 great women at a short women's conference. It was good for me in so many ways. It was good way to end a terrible day. Thanks Angela and Amanda!

So glad we got to do it! The fellowship and sharing was the best part and encouraged me more than you know.

If we lived close to you, I'd love to help out in any way that I could!!!
I received my book that I ordered from your site today. Bella is excited for her gift that will go under the tree!
