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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Have felt like crap physically for pretty much all day.
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
Rainbow of dryness.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
