Homeschool Routines, Rules, and Planner

Have you got homeschool routines going?

Having homeschool routines makes life a lot easier for everyone.  Thing is, it gets tricky when you’re adding so much that everyone is overwhelmed.  When you do it this way, you can’t have everything predictably scheduled.  I’ve mentioned before that’s one of the reasons I like meal planning, and homeschool routines are no different.

I’m a Dave Ramsey girl, and he’s actually the reason I got into this blog.  Or at least he was the one that gave me the courage to follow through.  His name is still a bit of a curse word in our house, but I sure do love him and all his little sayings.

One of my favorites is, “To be unclear is to be unkind.”  Now I can’t recall whether that was his own saying or a borrowed one, but either way, it’s perfect for homeschooling (even more so when dealing with special needs)!

The Best Homeschool Conference with Zero Travel

Looking for a Homeschool Conference without the hassle?

This is the homeschool conference for you then! I’ve always wanted to attend a homeschool conference, and still do, but between military schedules, childcare, and travel expenses, it’s not a reality for me right now.  There aren’t any conferences relatively close to me, let alone in my budget.  So do we just miss out then?  Nope!  There’s a perfect solution to the homeschool conference problem and I’m sharing that with you today!

Why do you need a homeschool convention?

If you’re like me, you don’t know everything in the world about homeschooling.  You’re still learning new tricks every day.  Sure, I know a heck of a lot more than when I started, and I share all of that with you here in the blog, but there is always more to learn.  That’s where a homeschool convention comes in.

The importance of developing SMART fitness goals

Do you set “Smart” fitness goals?

Does this sound like you?  “I’m going to lose weight this year… I need to get in shape.”  How does it work out?  That’s been me about 90% of the times I’ve tried losing weight.  Setting SMART fitness goals has been the one thing that has brought me success.

I hate anything that seems like it may be mentally taxing without any joy in return.  The ADHD in me hits a mental fatigue wall fast – as in just thinking about it.  Here’s the thing, every time I make a legit plan and keep track, I find so much more success.  It’s not so bad as you may think, and as you see yourself hitting goals, it becomes so rewarding, that you get that hit of joy with every day you track.

Meal planning: save time, be healthy, stay happy

Have you tried meal planning?

Just mentioning meal planning makes some mamas groan.  It can be a dirty word to the non-planner.  I’ve been there.  Being a mom with ADHD is brutal some days.  Meal times are a big part of that!  For years I heard, “Meal planning will save you…blah, blah, blah…”  No thanks.

I should have known better since all that I’ve overcome with my ADHD has been reliant upon planning and execution.  Maybe it was just my rebellion against yet another thing to plan.
