I need a nap. I don't think I can get through the concert tonight without some rest. I am excited about using the free-trial bow!

 

Have you all heard about grow bags? I saw a youtube that teaches how to make them super cheap out of landscape/weed barrier fabric. I think I may try them in the spring and put a small grow-bag container garden on my back deck - it's the only place in the yard (aside from our mailbox) that gets a good amount of sun all summer.

Dd slept well too last night. 

 

 

Hooray for sleep!

 

 

I originally read this as "slept too well", and was puzzled.

I think I’m going to need to quit the gym. There’s no afternoon childcare hours, which is when I really need it. I’m kind of mad at myself— when I was checking it out they said, “oh, these are just our summer hours,†and I just assumed that meant there would be more hours come fall, but no.

I’m really bummed. This was supposed to be “my thing,†my me time. Now I have nothing that is my thing and I’m with them 24/7 so me time is just binging on chocolate in my room while bribing them with TV. :(

 

I guess I just need to accept it. In a couple years oldest will be 13 and youngest will be 5 and hopefully I’ll be able to leave them home without them eating each other. Hopefully.

I have 47% on duolingo French and I still can’t think of a good reply. That app is too easy to game.

Do they work on children?  We have some short people here who could use some help.

I'm having a bad attitude about SIL who always asks if I can drop everything to help out. At least she's asking but no, I can't.

Good. I need you on hand in case of a crisis.

Well.... I've had a philosophical shift in the way I think about DS and his education. I think it is good. It's hard on me being a real rule follower and all, because this means not doing what everyone expects or says we must do. It means being more individual and trying to do what's best for this kid, even though I feel like I haven't the slightest idea what I'm doing .... we'll just call it personal growth. I've been working on looking at his strengths and working on bringing those out, as well as seeing what his weaknesses are and figuring out how to shore those up as well. Sometimes I hate being a parent. It's too hard. I just want to be a character in a book or a movie or something.

Might need to add some Miracle Grow.

 

Yes.  It's too bad that they can't put growth agents in their shampoo or something.  It would be so much easier than shots.  (We haven't decided for or against growth hormone shots, but it is an option for the two youngest.)

DH is threatening to not let me have any more massages because I come away limping.  I told him no, I simply need to have her work a lot lighter on my legs.

Dd9 lost another tooth.  I should have known when she refused to do her homeschool work this morning.  She always refuses to do work when her tooth is about to fall out.   :glare:

All this philosophy and all I can contribute is that I adulted and made dinner.

You would not want to be a character in one of my books. I am mean and do horrible things to people in the name of fiction. :D

No. My neighbor has first dibs. Her spellcheck still isn't working.

That's what Google's for.

For dinner we have roast turkey breast, mashed potatoes, gravy, steamed broccoli, candied sweet potatoes, and GF lemon pound cake. Now I have to go eat it. :drool5:

Isn't the childcare free with the family membership?

It doesn’r sound like it on the website, but it’s pobably worth asking once they have a physical building.

Yeah, I thought about that. I want to be a character in a light, fluffy beachy type book!

I think I like this shorter hair cut. You know something is right when you can fall out of bed in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror and say, "Woman--you look sassy, today!" 

And if you can face the mirror again after the day and say, "Still looking sassy", that's a good haircut. :laugh:

There was a spider on my face.

You can be proud of my stellar self control. It was in the grocery store and I did not yell or scream or freak out outwardly. I am still freaking out inwardly.

Eyeleak days seem to be much more common with 15 year old students than with younger ones. :svengo:

For Jean

 

Self-Control

 

I found a spider in my hair,

I didn’t scream and didn’t swear,

I didn’t succumb to the strain,

Just calmly washed it down the drain.

 

I found a spider on my face,

I didn’t yell, burn down the place,

My self-control’s a thing of pride,

I never squealed and never died!

Since it's all I'll probably cook for the next few days...

It's supposed to be nearly 90 this weekend. I won't have that oven on again until this weather gets its act together.
