I just had a nice nap. It slept quite well. If it was really active I have no memory of it. LOL

Sounds like your brain never sleeps! :)

My children never run out of ideas.  They are like a white hole.  Things are constantly spilling out.  I am an idea person.  I get my ideas from the internet, watching my children, curriculum that I purchase, reading and out of my own imagination.  i have yet to run out.  Coming up with new ideas is my favorite part of homeschooling.  What next unusual object can I use for school?

yes, and I torment my children often with it. My husband was very serious when we met and now he is worse than me. He says that I corrupted him.

Well, because of my own challenges (severe adult ADHD and more) I rely on curriculum.   The curriculum we buy keeps up moving and keeps the "topics" generated.    Although, we add (or remove) stuff all the time.

However, for extra ideas, we hit the library, zoo, museums, science centers, etc...  Sometimes, for ideas in writing, I just encourage them to go outside and imagine their "story" for a bit in the fresh air.   It usually does "freshen" up their ideas.

We have a ton of books, too, we've learned that picture books can spark ideas for their writing, crafts, and topics as well.   

They also have church, clubs, and activities... these give us plenty of things to do and topics.   

What we have to work on is giving ourselves more down time.
