Stressed. Overwhelmed. Guilty.
That is how I felt last year when I looked around at the overflowing bookcases, unopened (educational!) games in the closet, and my expanding need/want list for the next school year. How in the world could I get all of this curriculum under control? Was there a way to turn this situation around? Would I be able to get what I needed for the next year?
Let me tell you, my home was not pleasant when I got like this. I turned into one mean and grumpy, ugly bear of a momma! And you would think that after having a few years of homeschooling under my belt, I would've known better. But noooooo... Instead, I got carried away and took those few extra years to accumulate more STUFF! That just sat there! All of these good ideas and wonderful bargains wasted because they didn't fit into our lesson plans at all for the entire year... or three.
So what's a momma bear to do?
