Last week was school vacation around us, we didn't intend to take a week off, but because my clients were on vacation, my schedule was different. We needed a sitter 4x and I don't make the kids do schoolwork with a sitter...and to be honest, I wasn't really prepared for the week anyway. So we took a week off. Now this week we said we know we have to focus because we still want to be done in four weeks (really, I want to not have the guilt of not getting school work done...so I need them to finish what we intended to finish this year!)..but it's still been rough. Monday they went to a sitter for just a couple hours but I thought it would be longer, so they brought one assignment to do and didn't finish everything on the list. Yesterday, they worked for a bit but then we went to my dads and they stayed with him for a couple hours so they didn't finish everything. Today we are meeting my cousin at a park with her son, she needs some moral support right now and I thought it could be a good day...so they haven't done anything today yet...but we are bringing some work with us, especially since we will be out all day now..and they have work from yesterday they still didn't finish!
I'm just having a hard time having them work, I'm not following a schedule....DH started working a new shift at work, so I thought we would get more done, but since I have to drop them off with a babysitter, that's not happening. Soon, his mom will mostly be taking them and we live with her so I won't have to bring them anywhere so hopefully we will be able to accomplish something.
I'm trying not to be too hard on myself, and we can just go an extra week if we have to to finish what we planned to finish. But it's just hard to get back onto a routine, or get into a new routine!
