tuzor Posted January 23, 2012 Share Posted January 23, 2012 I would say for the past few weeks I have been in a planning slump. It started before Christmas, I was really in need of a break. Now post holidays, I find that I am not motivated to put everything together ahead of time like the math manipulatives needed, writitng on the math strip, getting out flash cards for reading lessons etc. But I know if I wait to do those things the day of it will slow us down. Next year I am planning to go with a program that is all planned out and will require little planning from me. (Which is probably not true because nothing is perfect out of the box for everyone.) But how do I manage in the meantime. I have got to make it until May and I have no motivation. We use a variation on the workbox system which helps me get tons done during the day but filling the boxes for my pre-schooler and prepping reading, history, etc for my son. I am lacking seriously here and I don't want to but that's reality. Two weeks ago I told my husband I did not feel like planning. Why did I say that? He panicked and went on and on about how I can't say things like that because he is depending on me to do what I need to do to give the boys a solid education and if I slack then the boys are going to school. :glare: (Okay, he is not the one to share with.) How do you get past your slumps? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
