It’s been a tough couple of weeks here in adjunctmom-land. I haven’t really been doing anything but keeping my head above water with work and trying to rest as much as I can.
Katie’s delivery was not ideal and I have some significant issues to overcome as a result. Some of them are emotional, and those are troubling, but far worse are the physical issues that have resulted from it. I expected that by the time she was four months old (yesterday) I would be over the worst of it. The last week or so has definitely proved that my assumption was incorrect. This makes me less able to organize or consider and review products or really discuss my family in a meaningful way.
However, I seem to be on an upswing, so I will be around more again. I just need to get myself back together a bit more. With that said, my question for those reading is — to homeschool or not to homeschool? What are the pros and cons? How does it work if you have one who is simply too young for school while the other isn’t?
These are the things that we’re contemplating as we watch the economy unravel and the school system in our area start to feel the crunch, particularly at the elementary level.
