Jean in Newcastle Posted September 10, 2012 Share Posted September 10, 2012 Both my kids are chomping at the bit. Which is a bit surprising since they only had one month off for summer vacation. I don't have all my ducks in a row. In fact, I think some of the ducks have flown away. I don't even know if we can start school tomorrow because we might be called in for dd's MRI. And even if they don't schedule us for that, I'll have to spend at least some time on the phone finding out about the MRI schedule. And if they tell me that the MRI is scheduled for November I'll have to spend some serious time trying to move mountains again. The house isn't clean. I wanted the house clean before starting. The schoolroom isn't usable. I had wanted the schoolroom cleaned out and usable. One of my books is waiting to be picked up at the library. I could have sworn I had a copy of the book at home but we have scoured our shelves and boxes of books and we can't find it. I'm glad that I was able to put a replacement on hold but I won't be able to pick it until either we're on our way home from radiology or after school, depending on how our day goes. I don't totally have dd's work figured out. We're being more "organic" this year. Which sounds wonderful in theory but is a bit scary for me. I know what I'm aiming for tomorrow. It just isn't all nice little worksheets. Which was the point. But it takes more energy than I'm sure I have. I've scheduled much more time with ds this year. This is a good thing. But the same lack of confidence in my stamina and energy level applies. I've had tummy problems for the last week. I'm 90% sure it is "nervous tummy". My brain is in a bigger fog than normal. I have only so much brain to go around. Dd's health is taking a big chunk of my mental RAM. I keep telling myself "one step at a time".
