I Can't Stand Up For Sitting Down

Over the years I've developed a few strategies for getting through my stay-at-home homeschooling day.

Here's one of my favorites: Don't sit down.

The temptation to sit is strong, but the consequences can be disastrous. Sitting down leads to resting. Resting leads to relaxing. Relaxing can turn into a full-blown day-wasting nap.

And then nothing gets done and you end up cursing every comfy chair in your house. Especially that La-Z-Boy in the corner that sings its siren song just after lunch.

No, it's better to not sit down at all. Why take chances?

*snickers* This happens to me a lot when I'm studying. I sit on the couch to study, then I think about how a little nap wouldn't hurt, then I fall asleep, then I sleep for longer than I wanted to, then I panic about studying, then I study like crazy, goes on and on. Maybe I should just stop sitting down.

It's even more dangerous if the TV is on

I do the same thing -- try to avoid sitting down anywhere except at my desk. And especially not in front of the tv. But then when my husband gets home and I plop down on the couch, he gives me the "why do YOU need to relax?" look.
