  1. Good morning!! I haven't been here in at least 6 months...I've gone back to work teaching preschool (in my state, preschools have remained open through all this) and have gone back to school to get a masters in teaching. I have so much to do this weekend, inattentive ADD has struck me big time, and I need some accountability. So here goes... -coffee -work on project due for school (designing a classroom, writing an essay about said design; need to figure out how to use a computer program to draw out classroom, ugh) -get transcript for DS2 so he can register for community college Calculus and Chem in the fall -send grades and honors declarations to homeschool group for this prior year -send application to homeschool group for upcoming school year -workout (cardio and core) -grocery store (it is embarassing how long it has been since I've been to the store) -cook for my family (it is even more embarassing how long it has been since I've made what can be described as a real "dinner") -laundry -make sure DS1 is doing the work required so he actually graduates high school in two weeks (this has been an ongoing disaster) -prep for preschool for the upcoming week -send some files to FedEx to be color copied and laminated I have missed all of you so much and can't wait to see you all today!!
  2. I teach preschool and deemed "essential" (South Carolina). The only thing we have done really is check everyone's (staff and children) temperature before they enter. Anything over 99.5 and you are sent home. One of the moms of a student made all the teachers at school masks, but we do not wear them at school. Parents are no longer allowed to come pick up their children from the classroom either - they can only come to the front entry and someone brings or picks up their child from the classroom and delivers him/her to the front. And all coats, jackets, backpacks, etc. must stay at school. If anyone in our immediate family has been around someone diagnosed with the virus we are supposed to stay away from work for 14 days. Same for kids. I have a class of 10 4 year olds. Only 3 are coming. It has been the same 3 kids every day since day 1. Two more have indicated they will return next week.
  3. From second grade on, I wanted to be a judge. Around 4th grade, I added "first woman president" to my career aspirations.... I went to law school and practiced law before kids so I guess I was somewhat on the right track for being a judge.
  4. I am so very, very sorry for you and your family. Many hugs and prayers for you all.
  5. Good morning! DH and the boys left at 8 AM to drive up to PA to visit DH's family. I have to work tomorrow and Monday so darn it all, I couldn't go....LOL. So I have a few days of beautiful solitude. I am going to work my rear end off today doing stuff so I can relax the rest of the time. This list is long, it is more of a dream list than a reality list. Especially since just sitting in my PJs lounging on the couch seems to be a fabulous idea. -coffee -see everyone off -watch England vs. South Africa cricket (anything to stall) -laundry (at this point it is towels and loads of delicates (sweaters mostly) that require special treatment) -thoroughly clean master bathroom -dust entire downstairs -clean off my desk in the kitchen (DH, God love him, "cleans" the kitchen every day. This pretty much entails taking anything that isn't 100 percent his and throwing it on my little desk area. Sigh) -vacuum entire downstairs -figure out whether I want to clean any of the upstairs or whether the kids should do it since they are the only ones who ever go up there - NOPE -clean out fridge -take out trash and recycling -give dog a bath (if it warms up a bit) -workout (lower body weights) -throw out all the homemade Christmas treats that have been gifted to us by students, neighbors, realtors, etc because I am the only one who eats them and I've gained 2 lbs. this past week and that is enough to start me on a downward spiral -figure out what books I need to order for DS18's second semester -maybe come up with a bulk cooking/freezer meal (Whole30 compliant) plan to maybe shop for and cook this weekend -relax
  6. I used to participate on and off on this thread years ago. Unfortunately, I haven't met my goal the past two years (well, maybe if I can read 24 short stories between now and 12/31 I can salvage 2019...🤣). I have a stack of 6 books from the library just waiting to be read in 2020 and I look forward to participating in this thread once again!
  7. Merry Christmas to all!!! I miss being on this thread every day. Hope you all have a lovely day with family/friends. xoxo
  8. MysteryJen, thanks for asking! The new job is ok. Some good moments, some not so good moments. Unfortunately I'm still building up my immunity to being around that many kids (LOL) and today is the first day in a month that I haven't had a sore throat, or felt liquid in my ears, or have a froggy voice. Hopefully I am good to go. I also got accepted to grad school and start my Masters in Teaching Elementary Education in mid-January.
  9. Good morning! Now that I work I miss this thread so hopefully I can still participate on the weekends. In no particular order: -binge watch The Ranch with DH -trade in old iphone 7s for new iphone 11s -hair appointment at 4:45 -watch NFL -laundry DONE: 0 -make dinner reservation for Christmas -work on Christmas bows for kitchen cabinets -maybe go out with DH tonight to hear some local music in Greenville
  10. I get mine done every two weeks. I love them. I feel they detract from the dark circles under my eyes 🤣 I get compliments on them all the time. People think they are my real lashes.
  11. Well my clearances came back (I'm sorry I called to check on them...) so I guess I'm off to work at some point.
  12. Good morning! My clearances still haven't come back so another day at home. -coffee -DS18 off to school -straighten up for cleaning people -stay out of cleaning people's way (with my parents here...) -do the mountain of laundry DS18 left behind -parbroil my string beans for the greenbeans and tomato dish for Thursday -chop up all onions and celery for making broth and stuffing -library to pick up book for report DS15 has to do -workout (may go for nice long walk as today is cardio and I need to get away from everyone...) -get leaves on the dining room table, make sure I know where all my Thanksgiving platters and linens are (I know I unpacked them when we moved but where did I put them) -await arrival of my aunt and uncle (no idea when they are coming, but I should probably savor the peace and quiet before two more people get here) -dinner tonight (probably the frozen lasagnas I picked up at costco the other day)
  13. Good afternoon! I am late to this party... My clearances for work still haven't come back yet so darn the luck, I'm home again today... Done: -coffee -kids to school/co-op -workout To Do: -make garlic cheesy herb muffins for Thursdsay and freeze -make homemade cranberry sauce for Thursday and put in fridge (quickly running out of space in both fridges) -relax and visit a bit with my parents -pick DS15 up from co-op -listen to DH cough like he is dying. I would be sympathetic, but I had the same cough last week and he makes it sound a million times worse than need be -discuss upcoming 50th birthday (boohoohoo) cruise with high school friends (we need to figure out if we are really going to do this or not) -do a bit of research on the grad school program I am beginning in January Hope everyone is doing well!!
  14. Good morning! DH is coughing every 2 seconds, so there go our plans for the evening, and it is raining all day so there go our plans for yardwork.... -coffee -workout -laundry -get house ready for onslaught of overnight Thanksgiving guests (my parents arrive tomorrow, an aunt and uncle on Tuesday) -double and triple check that I have everything I need for Thanksgiving meal as the grocery store was an absolute show yesterday (and I suspect will only get worse) -watch some college football
