Never Alone: An Update


  1. perfect!
    I am sending this to my sister – she needs this badly as she gets used to three young kids.
    thanks, Homie!

  2. I’m never alone. I homeschool in a small home and my husband keeps choosing to work from home. I can hear him, and it sounds like his work is pleasant. I resent that very much in my dark dark heart. And my also lovely children use all the words. I’m just so tired. It’s winter here, but that means lots of wind, not freezing, so sent my youngest two outside to play. I can still hear them. It’s what you said, someone is always just about to walk into where I am and need me in some way. I’ll have to figure some time away from each other real soon too. Any self care tips that aren’t the generic ones that might apply to a mother of a few kids spanning quite a range?

    Rachel, I didn’t get the video but boy did I get the message today. Ironically, the first day in I don’t know when that I have had my house to just me… overnight! Everyone who lives here – except me – was away. (That’s four other people, folks!) I am not a cleaner, so that wasn’t what I did. I had to make a homeschool transcript for my son’s sophomore year, so I worked on it. Without interruption. And I stayed up too late watching a movie that only I would enjoy. And I did NOT set an alarm for 6:15 AM.

    It was a day of peaceful not-too-much-self-indulgence. It will probably have to last me YEARS. But it was fun while it lasted. This is coming to you, too. Someday.
