Frazzled.

I didn't sleep at all last night - ok, I never went to bed - and I'm overwired on caffeine.

Frustrated and wondering if my kids ever really need to learn to communicate with the written word.  Oh wait, yes they do.  Sigh.




Are they bored with reading or just having some trouble trying to read?

Oh no, they love to read.  Even my 4yo was showing off his reading skills (took me by surprise).  It's their writing.  It's as if I asked them to tear off a limb.

oh and myself???   My mood is OK except I feel an odd cross between lazy and stressed to get stuff done.

My kids have "choir camp" this week, which is three consecutive days of attending choir group for 1 hour and 1 1/2 hours each... at two different locations, two very different times...   I'm feeling pressure to get done because our schooling has already been interrupted several times this year (three weeks, really?)... and I'm feeling like we have to accomplish stuff and pressured to do so.

However, I'm also feeling like I just want to go curl up with the baby who is about to take his nap.

 Tired





Aww - I hope you are not coming down with a cold or something.

Do what you feel has to be done then take the rest of the day off! Grab an energy drink or a powerade. The ones that are double the RPV (200%) in the B vitamins of 3, 6, and 12. They relax your body and mind plus give you a boost of energy.

The reason I asked is maybe if they "see" what they are hearing in their own words, then the writing might click for them. Maybe you could have them write what the "think" they are reading and compare what they think to the actual words.

Yikes. I know how that feels. Just did that myself the other night.
Still feeling it several days later.

Tired, overwhelmed, frustrated.  LOL  Take your pick.


Tired because we got back from our vacation last night.  Overwhelmed because I have regular stuff to do and now unpacking from vacation.  Frustrated because I just spent almost 2 hours at the dr. for DD well visit.  Guess what?  She is growing and doing fine.  LOL  Oh and the Dr. commented about my "disappearing lap" when I was holding her for him.  Um yeah, having a baby in about 2 months does that to a person.

Is there a specific subject or grade level?   Can we help at all?
