I also do A LOT of reading to him instead and we go quickly that way now. I've also skipped a few that were just not necessary. We will go over the lesson (like themes in writing, characters, etc) and I will show an example, but we will skip the story.

Interesting... there is SO MUCH reading (stories and novels) in 3rd grade. SO MUCH. Add on the reading he does for science, art and history and he's overwhelmed. This is a kid with no reading problems either.

Cat, not to downplay your plight, but if nothing else, you should know some of us who aren't bipolar are also wasting time, hyperactively cleaning, or curled up somewhere doing nothing Hey, does anyone know if the local district covers learning disability evaluating for homeschoolers and how to do this? I sent a note today to the teacher to ask her. We need to get my 8yo's eyes checked and most likely he needs glasses, but also, despite how well he reads (pretty...

Thanksgiving was so-so, but then this past Saturday I binged so hardcore, omg. I've been eating too much for months and of course I'm sugar addicted, but this was different. Something triggered and it was awful. I actually think that's the worst I've ever been. I ate until I thought I would pop and went to bed thinking I still wanted to consume something.. anything. Since then I've only eaten the bare minimum, and not on purpose, I just stopped eating. It's been a weird...
Ugh!! I tend to do that with things I buy or bake for the kids
I thought we'd get a ton of stuff done this week on break and we haven't touched anything. Honestly, I've been enjoying not doing it, and so has he, so I guess we'll just keep delaying.

I hope this thread takes off. I am just realizing that this is getting really serious and I need help. Overeating is an eating disorder with the same beginnings and anorexia or bulimia. I have been this way since I was young, but it's caught up to me now that I cannot exercise and don't work outside the home (you know, where I wouldn't eat as much, etc). Ugh... I need major help.
I was NOT interested in being a SAHM ever! And then my #3 was a few months old and I realized I really wanted to come home. I quit WOH when he was 1 and the others were 4 and 7. I've been home ever since. It has had its ups and downs, but I am HAPPY at home.
