thanks, universe

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Apparently the universe reads my blog. Today Tabitha went out with park friends to a movie in order to get away from this extreme heat. It was unexpected and came together nicely and easily. So, thank you.
Whilst she was watching Percy Jackson, Dee and I hung out at a friend’s house with yet another […]

displeasing things

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

One big problem with homeschooling year round is I feel guilty any time we’re not going full-force with lessons. We’re taking it easy right now for personal reasons and though I feel it’s the right thing to do, there’s that underlying feeling of guilt that will not go away. Needless to say that kind of […]

early pj time

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

My plans tonight got postponed until next week which means I have good stuff planned every single day next week. So iffen I don’t blog, it’s because I’m busy with the funness.
So today really was just like yesterday- light lessons, laundry, me feeling ill, and dance.
Boring stuff but sometimes it’s good to have a […]

what ails you?

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Have felt like crap physically for pretty much all day.
Fun times.
But the day itself was fine. I did light lessons with both girls, vegged online a bit, took care of normal chores. I also cleaned off the top of one of our dressers. We are kind of a cluttery people (I thought of how […]

Mondays are not terrible

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

I have a friend or two who always curse Mondays on Facebook. While I feel for them, at least it amuses me. But I cannot relate as we usually have pretty good starts of the week no matter what we do.
Yesterday was housecleaning in the morning and then a Brownie meeting for Daisy after lunch. […]

if I could freeze time

Monday, August 26th, 2013

This isn’t even a post about kids growing up. I just need about 3 days in a row to get stuff done and I need my kids to not be here. Our weekends have been so packed that when we finally do come home for the evening, I too tired to do anything other than […]

We are a colorful lot

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Rainbow of dryness.

dash it all

Monday, August 19th, 2013

If you’re my facebook friend, you know we spent the week out and about having fun. There was Disneyland and Mad T Parties, pool parties, lunch dates, the Natural History Museum, mini-golf, and Zoomars- just all around fun.
In general my life is pretty much sunshine and roses with unicorns farting rainbows. But right now […]

PJs and Ice Cream for a Monday

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

When I initially realized we were going to have a full week of no dance before fall schedule starts, I was of two minds. My first thought was that we’d jump in with a fantastic week of full lessons. But my second thought was if we were going to have the week off, we really […]

Go with whatever title suits you

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

Friday was our usual park day but this time we brought an extra kid home to spend the night. Let me just say that I really need to write my mom a beautiful thank you note because I honestly don’t ever recall her saying no to a friend spending the night at our house. Now […]

To sum up

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

I hate running
Del Taco provided tonight’s dinner
I think I cut my bangs too short but I’m afraid to look
I was alone for 2 hours for the first time in 2 months and did absolutely jack-shit nothing (except scrub the trash can, of all things)
Glitter nail polish makes me look like I’m trying to relive 8th […]

What is the road to hell paved with again?

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Oh yes, good intentions.

I intended to get the kitchen sparkling today.
I emptied the dishwasher.
I intended to do math and violin with Daisy today.
She practiced violin and I looked at her math books (so that counts, right?).
I intended to vacuum the dining room.
Okay, I don’t know that I should take the blame on this one, Daisy […]

case of the lazies

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Just re-read a post from July 17 and I sounded so hopeful that we were at the end of Daisy’s cough. Le sigh. But last night was so good with zero wake-ups that I didn’t even want to wake her this morning. So both kids slept until 9ish (that’s late in our house) and […]

what’s my name again?

Monday, August 5th, 2013

I wanted to look at my last post so I would remember where I left off on this story called life and I typed in the wrong web address- because apparently I can’t remember my own website.
Can I blame advancing age?
Last week I had a Tuesday afternoon where I was free. We had had […]
