Just say NO!

This is the time of year where we are wrapping up our homeschooling. My sons have a 6-week schedule mapped out for their independent work. I will be busy at home organizing, cleaning, planting and looking forward to a restful summer. I have been stung again by the same words I have heard my entire married life in this blog: A Wise Woman Builds her House. This is another thought provoking post that may make my feminist friends cringe, I mean it makes me uncomfortable. No one has ever accused me of putting housework before fun, yet, I like many others have to fight the urge to take on more outside commitments.  There are so many worthy pursuits, great books, pressing needs, blogs to blog and blogs to read.

      This week, I plan on practicing saying the word "No." so if you see me talking to myself, don't think I have lost it. I am just giving myself a little reverse psychology pep talk. "No, you can't do it." "Are you crazy?" and "No, sorry, no, that won't work."

I welcome reader comments with open arms. I also understand if you aren't the commenting or hugging type of person, you can drop me an email at
