Ramblings of a Pagan house wife.

My thoughts are in a bit of a disorganized mess. But I'm going to attempt to put them down here. If this post doesn't make any sense to anyone else but myself, I apologize.

Homeschooling is going well, but I feel like we don't have enough time in our day. I want to add more things to our schedule such as sewing, crochet, and daily exercise. I've been put in charge of a K12 Virtual Academy group on Cafemom. I'm enjoying helping the group become more active. I do this while Sierra is doing her lessons and she is able to work alone btw.  I've thought about getting up earlier but I can't force myself to because I always end up staying up late at night with Wyatt.

I've been thinking a lot about my maternal grandmother. I never really knew her. When I was about 4 or 5 she died. I think she had heart disease. Which makes me think of my own mother. I haven't seen her in two years. While I'm not the type to cling to my mother, I do miss her. I also miss my dog who lives with my mom.

I've also had a lot of bad dreams lately. I started to make a dream catcher for myself but of course Sierra has to poke her nose in and want it. So I just gave up and gave it to her. We still have to finish it today as part of her art project.

Yesterday I wanted to get out of the house so my kids and I went to Inanna's Spiritual Center. The topic of the day was about poverty, which wasn't terribly interesting to me since I've lived in poverty and don't particularly like to think about it.

After the service the temple owner wanted to brain storm on ways to advertise the center for free or low cost. My suggestion was to do trade shows and festivals. So we'll see if she does that. Hopefully she does.

She also mentioned that I should get away, and that she was planning another woman's retreat in a few months. I don't know about going because I honestly don't get along with a lot of women. I'm one of those women who make friends with men before I'll make friends with another woman. But she is right, I need time to just be me. Not mom, not wife, just ME!

What are you up to this weekend?
