DH keeps taking Thursday off. This is the third week in a row he randomly decided to take a day to work around the house. This is fine with his job considering the amount of overtime he's been putting in. It is, however, seriously affecting my homeschool. Especially since he doesn't plan it ahead, he just decides the night before. I can't rearrange lessons with zero notice when the week is already nearly over.

 

 

:grouphug:  :grouphug:   That is very rough.

You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Ignore this post in this thread.

Go JJM, go! You can do it!

 

Jean, way to go with the Pantz!

 

 

 

That's a great idea!

  

When I was in Denmark I wondered at how everyone would just walk or bike along in the rain until we walked around in the rain and realized a good raincoat with hood worked just as well as an umbrella with that kind of rain. We were drenched in Sweden, though.

 

 

AMJ said "fart"!

 

 

The humidity made me do it.  C'mon down and visit, and you'll see how it is.

The flash flood alarm went off on everyone's phone while I was in Aldi. :svengo: Fortunately it has stopped raining and looks like we are close to done with the wetness for a couple days. The neighbor boy was outside when I got back and offered to help carry in boxes of groceries. :wub:

 

 

:grouphug:  :grouphug:

 

and  :hurray:  :hurray:  for neighbor boy!

Art ran late. I have cancelled math for the day. We still have to get writing done and history/science. But after that I want to be done. It's too pretty here today to be cooped up doing school.

 

 

It is rather nice here, too.  Dad was more tired than usual, so I kept my visit today short.  He can sit on his deck or take a nap.  I get to check to see if the cushions on my canopy swing have dried out yet.

 

Tomorrow, though, should be very nice.  Just in time for my day off, compliments of my ILs.   :001_wub:  :001_wub:

 

 

And the credit union straightened out whatever glitch was occurring and our funds moved as they should.  Everyone and everything is now being paid on schedule.  Whew!   :hurray:  :hurray:

 

DH says that the CU is supposedly moving to a new website on Monday.  I suspect eager IT beaver jumped the gun just a little on certain changes in preparation for the move.  Said beaver has now put that log back for the time being.

The funny part is if he would choose Wednesday instead, it wouldn't mess with my schedule at all. Or if he would tell me sooner so I could spread the work out between Wednesday and Friday, that would be fine. But no.

I even told him last night that we needed to do school today, and he said,"I'll be outside most of the day. I won't bother you." And he has been. The only times he's come in is right in the middle of each lesson so he can interrupt.

 

 

*facepalm*

 

 

Any chance you can lock the deadbolt and only let him in between lessons?

As long as you had pantz, Jean, you’re good.

 

Now I want tacos, especially for $8.

 

Lana—have you talked about it with do? I found that I had to train dh on the matter. I need either advance notice or he can’t interrupt our day until after noon.

Was this an already agreed-upon time and date?  Or did they just come when they were ready themselves?

 

Good quote, or more than you are comfortable with at this time?

 

Did Juliet growl menacingly and let them know she's there to guard the place?  Or did Neko do that?

 

It was on my calendar but I hadn't flipped the calendar to the new month yet.  The thing is, I knew up front that it would be too high for us to afford.  Dh had told me to cancel it but I forgot.  Or thought that when they called to confirm, I would tell them then that we wanted to cancel.  Oh well.

 

Juliet bounded to the door enthusiastically to greet our new friend.  Fortunately I still had her leashed from the cat training so I could protect the lady from too enthusiastic puppy greetings. 

 

Neko was hiding already from the dog.

My one and only niece was born in January.  I have not met her yet.

 

Weather and colds and work schedules have prevented the trip until now.

 

I was planning to take the girls to Pennsylvania tomorrow so that we could meet her this weekend.

 

My mom just emailed me and said to check the weather.

 

:glare:

 

They are calling for very high winds all day tomorrow, which would make travel dangerous.

 

:thumbdown:

 

I think we're going to end up cancelling the trip.

 

:thumbdown:

 

Unless we leave in the next hour.

 

:svengo:

 

I think we're going to end up cancelling the trip.

I have a horrible tension headache. The snappers have been extra snappy and that didn't help. They have been sent outside to exercise the chickens.

I have not talked to him, except last night when I explained that we really needed to work today because of previous interruptions. Honestly, I'm pretty relaxed about our school work. I mean, it's only 1st grade and we can always catch up later. But this whole school year has been one interruption after another, so it needs to be a priority, kwim?

 

Anyway, we ended up getting mostly everything done today. I will speak with DH tonight about advance planning in the future.

I have found that teaching mine how to teach and assigning him curriculum when he's home means he's home less often.

 

Ds is asking me 3very ten seconds if quiet time is over.

Can you set up an alarm?

Kids had annual checkups today. The nurse of course noticed my eyes, and said that the doctor should be able to help (I was strongly contemplating going anyway, but I figured that before spending money, I might as well see what the ped said, lol), so, I got my eyes taken care of, yep, conjunctivitis, and got meds. Also went to the library. Now home again, and exhausted. The kids are doing well, both are staying neatly on their lines on the growth chart (5th and 50th percentiles), and Broccoli is now over 4ft tall as well. And Celery got a tetanus shot because apparently NYS requires that before entering 6th grade (I thought the next round of shots was at 11yo, with meningitis or something, but apparently I was wrong. Well, I was right about him needing that when he's 11, so, another shot next year).

Juliet met the boxer puppy from across the street.  Such happiness!  And yips!  And play bows!  And a bold/shy puppy who alternated between rushing towards her new friend and hiding behind dd's legs.  Now she's exhausted and is sleeping in a sun patch with Neko sitting one foot away because he can tell that the puppy isn't going anywhere.

So, she needs another puppy to help wear her out! 😂
