A Necessary Change's an old photo, but one I really like. :)
I have been debating for months, and even more so in recent weeks, about quitting my blog...and quitting reading blogs. There. I said it. It has been a really difficult decision and I don't know that I will stick with it or how long I will stick with it, but I am at a point in my life that I just don't have the bandwidth to juggle everything.

Princess has a very full schedule. We are at Village Home then drum lessons on Tuesdays, Village Home again Wednesday and back to Village Home all day Thursday. We have playdates and activities we want to do. I have a house to maintain and meals to cook. I know that many of you have busy lives as well, but I have found that I am not very good at the balancing act. I can't give my all to my blog and reading other blogs and then to Princess and the Lizard King and our home.

I had hoped to be an inspiration to others who want to unschool, but I think my hopes were a little lofty. I'm just an unschooling mom trying to figure it all out one day at a time and I have finally figured out that it just isn't working. I have met some amazing people through my blogs, most of whom I am friends with on Facebook now. I find it so much easier to throw a photo or comment out on Facebook, so for now can be found there. If you would like to "friend" me, please send me an email at shadylady @ maintcc . com with your Facebook information.

I wish you all the best of everything!!!

Thank You Notes

One gift Princess received for her birthday was a fairy notes set. I mentioned that they could be good to use for writing thank you notes for her birthday gifts. She thought that was a great idea! And that is exactly what she did.
