Yikes! A Year has passed.

I can't believe it has been a whole year since I posted. Well, actually I can. When I started to blog last year I got really overwhelmed. I have perfectionist tendencies so when I can't accomplish something to meet me own standards, I just don't do it. That is what happened with my blog. So one of my good friends has been blogging alot lately and she has inspired me to log back on. Really just the fact that she is creating a virtual scrapbook of her homeschooling life is inspiration. I know I will not remember these times if I don't make note somewhere so a blog seems like a perfect place.

Actually, this very blog is a great reminder of how fast the memory fades. I am reading back on the end of our first year of homeschooling and I had forgotten how burnt out and stressed I was. I would say that this past year, our 2nd of HS, has been so much better. I am sure I have forgotten many of our stressed days and I know I wanted to send Sister to school, but we made it! My first year of teaching both of them and we survived. Adding M to the mix was difficult. She is much more high needs than T and needs WAY more outside stimulation. T and I are both introverts and happy to stay home the majority of the time. M wants to go several places in one day. Yikes! I am still trying to balance the personality differences, but I am hoping once I get M more involved in school she will have less time to whine.

So my goal for now is to blog more without adding more pressure to myself. Next time I will post an update of our past school year. And, oh yeah, I am going to challenge my friend and see if she can find this blog all on her own?? Ok, I am sure she will find it, but how long will it take?

Woohoo, I get to cyberstalk you now too! Of course, this will only work if you actually post. Hmm, maybe you pointed me to your decoy blog and that other one I had found IS actually yours :)
