As much as I love being on this board (and a few others!) it's time for me to spend less time on my computer each day. We homeschool, and yet I find myself, throughout the day, getting on here and "checking" on everybody, when I should be doing other things. I have known this for a while, but I am sorry to say, this is ADDICTIVE! And then at night, when I used to read, spend time with my dh, etc, I am again on here! Lol
Anyway, I will miss you ladies, but I will probably only stop by every so often to say hi. I've got to put my time and focus back into my family. Enjoy yourselves and behave!
And always remembering our angel babies: 2002, 2006, and 2008
We home school too and I have been slacking. But I think we have wrapped up the year anyway. I am switching out some curricula and am thinking I should not finish what we were already working on because of scope and sequence issues (switching from Singapore Math to Math U See). That sort of thing. So we are doing review and such now.
I've been spending less time on here too. It's nice outside now, and I want to enjoy more time with my daughter before another one comes along. I still check in almost everyday, but usually only once or maybe twice.
Its always sad when people on JM decide to "leave" because of it being consuming or addictive. I actually have learned to make JM apart of my life without disrupting family time or things I have to get done. It has actually become just part of my life and sometimes I step away for a while and sometimes I am more active than others.... all depends on whats going on with me personally. But, there is one thing about this site, is you can always find support here. Noone here will judge you if you step away for a while and decide to come back. I am just glad you told us so we don't have to wonder if your okay or not.
You will be missed but I hope this isn't a forever thing. I hope you do check in, even if you don't respond to posts. Because you are an asset and friend in our club.
Of course I understand....I too need to cut back on my internet time. Your kids are only little once afterall. You do need to chat with other mammas from time to time though, and we are all here for love and support when you do come by!
