I think I’m taking on too much, but I feel like everything is important!! I want to start homeschooling Jude this year as a test run to see if I really want to do this. Since this year is the last year I have before everything has to be documented for the government, I figured I should try it now. Not to mention living so far away from the Montessori school he was going to. So, if anyone has any tips THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!

I’m starting school again in a month. It’ll only be half time, but it’s online so I’ll be juggling Jude and school work. Which was fine when he was a baby because I could get things done while he napped or nursed. Now I don’t really know if I can do it.

Also, I had to take out a small loan for school and I’d like to pay it off before I graduate, but I’m not making any extra money at the moment. So I want to start selling salves and probably tinctures eventually to raise a little money to finish school. But this opens up another world of issues with what to make, where to sell it, etc.

I also have the opportunity to work as an acupuncturist’s assistant again along side an herbalist. BUT it’s over an hour away (down the street from the job I just quit due to distance). And I wouldn’t have a reliable sitter for Jude while I’m working, on top of it pretty much completely blowing the whole homeschool idea. But in order to be a Registered Herbalist, I’ll have to work or intern with an herbalist, so this is an awesome opportunity to do that!

Not to mention all the general motherly worries with Jude’s (and my own) nutrition, prosperous relationships, keeping the house clean, making sure Jude doesn’t go more than a week without a shower O.O

Shits gettin’ real

The big lie about capitalism is that everyone can be rich. That’s impossible. Capitalism works only if the vast majority of the population are kept poor enough to never quit working, are kept poor enough to accept distasteful jobs society cannot function without. If everyone were a millionaire, who would empty the trash or repair the sewers? It follows that the poorer the general population is made, the greater the worth of the money held by the wealthy, in terms of the lives which may be bought and sold with it.

What a cutie pie!! #timehop

Jude had his first chattahoochee tubing experience this weekend!!!

No big deal. Just my morning view ;)
