Ironically, I've never seen that motion picture.
This past spring was tough on me. My kids each had 5-6 outside-the-house activities that they had to be chauffeured to and from. See my pathetic, uncharacteristic recent blog output:
And it's not like I've been neglecting this space to work on other endeavors (e.g. HomeschoolDad.com)....I just haven't been able to do anything recently.
As I've already mentioned, I'm cutting back big time on my little golf hobby.
But I've also caved-in to my wife and permitted her hire a maid ($100 for 4-5 hours of cleaning, every other week). Note the house is still dirty!
One of the other things I've done is start feeding the kids simpler meals. In the past I would never serve them say store-bought meatballs and jarred sauce for dinner. But these are the type of hacks, er shortcuts, I'm experimenting with these days. I'm just too swamped.
Yeah their diet has become a little unhealthier, and in this day and age I know scores of people who are going the other way, devoting serious time, energy, and money(!) to make sure their kids only consume the most spiritually and chemically pure foods.
Whatever. The human body is pretty darn resilient so my kids will survive.
Not to mention the majority of these *healthy eaters* in my circles are otherwise Morons. Recently I had to suffer some 225 lb parent's screed on organic food and environmentalism.
I felt like telling them to forget about Earth and focus on the orb in their mirror!
