It has been a rough couple of months, and an even rougher last couple of weeks! The kids got hit with the stomach flu, and then caught influenza. I had 9 days off between Christmas and this coming weekend, and I have essentially been sick for all of those days.
It is unfortunate because I had a lot of home projects that I was hoping to get done while I was "on break" from work and homeschooling. Alas, that was not to be, and so I am facing the jump into the second half of the school year and the first part of the New Year already feeling behind and frustrated.
I am trying to rectify that by formulating a plan! Instead of making yearly goals or resolutions this year, I am going to make my goals on a month to month basis.

I have some other more personal educational/spiritual/marriage goals, but writing and publishing the above ones should help me accomplish some things that I really need to get done - for example, the picture/scanning stuff that has been put off for far too long!
