4th Annual Commenting Challenge by Jenna's Journey

Welcome to 'The Unworking Mom".  If you are visiting from Jenna's Journey, I'm glad you stopped by! 

A little about me :-)  I started this blog about several years ago after being impacted greatly by a blog that I read.  I realized that I, just maybe, could have an impact on someone else by sharing things from my life.  I called it "The Unworking Mom" because, as a stay-at-home mom, that is the impression, isn't it?  In reality, I work harder now then I ever did as a supervisor in a financial institution.  I enjoy this outlet of "adult conversation" in the midst of lots of little ones running around. I do kinda work as I babysit for a friend - so we have a 3 year old and a 6 month old in our house every weekday too!

My family consists of my Husband of 12 years, Darryl, who is a Cab Driver and a musician.  We have two boys, Josh and Nate, who are 4 1/2 and 3 1/2; best friends, brothers, and always on the move.  We also have two animals - our Dog, China, who is about 12 years old (we rescued her so we aren't 100% sure of her age) and our cat, Misty, who is 17 years old.   

I enjoy trying to keep my sanity by scrapbooking - I try to attend at least one crop a month as it gets me out of the house and into a room with adults.  Reading is another favorite activity and I love my Kindle :-)  As a family, we love to go to the beach.  Living within driving distance of the great lakes makes it easy to head to the beach on the weekend and enjoy the sun, water, and cooler temps in the summer.  When I get time, I enjoy playing the piano and singing as well but that often takes a backseat with the little's around all day.The other big thing I do is homeschool my kids.  This year we are doing k-4 and preschool so it is busy!

The only way I connect with my readers is through this blog :-)  I'm not into twitter and haven't set up a facebook page yet for the blog :-)

I'm a "schedule" blogger - I have my blog schedule ready to go a month in advance so I hope you enjoy reading my regular posts after this "extra" post!

I am horrible about commenting, but I have often wondered about how homeschooling has been going for you guys!

I love the 6-week rotation idea! I may have to give that a try. This year, I've planned to base our schedule on the local school's schedule. But it is basically 6 weeks, then off for some crazy holiday or break anyway! The long break at Christmas last year KILLED our momentum. I never got it back last spring. Hopefully that won't be the case this year!
