Before shutting off the laptop this evening, I was wandering around in my sieve-like mind trying to think of something I had energy to write about and found this fill-in-the blank from Carmen. Perfect. I have exactly that much energy this evening.
Bullet Points of Randomness
Tomorrow: Another day of homeschool. Sigh. Some days I just want to PLAY and not be the responsible (ie: thinking-about-standardized testing/college/gainful employment-for-my-progeny) parent.
Feeling: Very tired. Dealt with a kid today who tried the old ‘you’re not the boss of me’ line. (Deluded child.)
Happy Because: I survived the day. And kid did too.
–homeschooled 9 children
–weathered one major kid-fit
–sent Eldest back to college (boohoo)
–did 4 loads of laundry
–took one kid to swimming lessons and another kid to karate while 7 other kids swam for fun
–spent $53 (ack) on two ‘family-pack’ meals from Panda Express. (remind me not to do that again)
Laundry: Nearly caught up. I am still head over heels in love with my new Whirlpool.
Something I know: Tomorrow’s lunch (leftover Panda Express)
Currently reading: UnPlugged Play (great book– no wonder I want to play tomorrow)
Wanting: to find time in the midst of schooling to play more with my little kids. (Hmm. sensing a theme. Would it be too terrible to just ditch school tomorrow? oh yeah. gainful employment. probably dependent on kids’ ability to read and do multiplication. sigh.)
Favorite gadget: washing machine
Thankful that: the school year is at least half over. Also I have a DAY OFF on Saturday, which I plan to spend at the coffee shop drinking Mexican Mochas and writing my lil’ heart out.
Wondering why: Saturday seems so far away.
Care to fill in any of these with your own (hopefully more cheery) answers?
