Woefully Wednesday

What is Woefully Wednesday?
Oh just a fun little way for those of us in the homeschooling world to VENT!!! It started on the web site for Home for All as a way for members to share the inevitable ups and downs of the home education journey. As I was writing my first Woefully Wednesday post, I thought, "Gosh, I'd really like to put this on my blog..."
So I did:

Wow....I'm so very tired! I must admit- this really was a woeful Wednesday. I had high hopes at the beginning of the day that I wouldn't feel the need to post in this category. That hope faded quickly. Did I mention we are moving? We are. So added to the normal stress of moving, everyone was grouchy today and Kai found any way possible to pee all over the floor. In fact, he managed to pee on almost every floor we have. He accomplished this by using the potty as though he were an old pro and then sneaking away and urinating wherever he could. He was relentless. I finally decided to put a diaper back on him for the rest of the day. He then quietly removed it when I was out of sight and, you guessed it, peed all over. Perhaps he was feeling my stress, perhaps marking his territory, perhaps he is just a two year old who is potty training. Whatever the reason, he wore me out.

I won't go in to the details of the other trials from the day. I'll simpy say: Halleluia for bed time, for a husband who knows when to take over, that moving is not an eternal process, and that friends are there to pick you up when you're down....or to just sit with you if you'd prefer to stay down for awhile.
