I had a time like that, I was always irritated and stressed. I fixed it through prayer and finding bible verses that helped me. I also remembered that its not that big of a deal if certain things don't get finished. I just kinda chilled out lol.

I do not homeschool but several of my friends do. It can be stressful but one of them has a system that she uses to make sure lessons are being done and the other daily tasks are taking care of as well. She has an organized chart that includes lessons, chores, tasks, activities and errands on it. It works well for her, but every household is different.

Have you joined the Homeschooling Moms group yet. One of my cafemom friends is in that group and she says it is really supportive. Here is the link for you.

I don't home school but I would imagine it would involve a big learning curve, especially with time management. Maybe implement a priority chart for daily activities.. things that have to get done, things that should get done, and things that can wait a day or two.

Good luck and try not to be hard on yourself!

I don't homeschool but I also suggest the Homeschooling Moms group that Reina linked you to. There are lots of great moms there who are happy to help you work out a routine that helps you educate your children and keep your sanity in check, too. :)

Welcome to the group! I'm a homeschooling mom. I have 3 kids but only one really old enough to be doing real schoolwork. What curriculum are you using? I'm using Easy Peasy and it is pretty easy!
