Homeschool Burn out

I'm a homeschool mom of two boys. My oldest is bipolar with Oppositional Defient Disorder. We have had a lot of changes in the last three months-DH retired from the Navy, we moved to a different state where we know no one, our oldest cat died, my mother has been hospitalized twice, I spent three weeks with my mother and the boys taking care of her, my DH hates his new job, I still have boxes packed to the ceiling in several rooms - you name it. I am burnt out. My boys have showed their dismay at all the changes by becoming disobedient, sassy brats!:mad: I am at the end of my frayed and flaming rope! For the last week and a half we have been on a break. I'm trying to re-adjust their attitudes while re-charging my batteries. We still have about 25 days of school left to do this year. I am worried that they aren't learning enough. Ever since we moved I have had so much trouble keeping them on a schedule. As far as my lesson plans are concerned they're about two months behind I really could use some advice.
