Woke up in a panic.  Argh!


Workmen here at 8

Clean kitchen

Dejunk kitchen and clean tile so they can replace counters some time this week (probably; one never nows exactly when things will happen)

Today they turn the water off for a chunk of the day to continue with plumbing

For some reason our A/C doesn't seem to be working at full power.  Could it be something they are doing with the vents?

Somehow manage to do Latin/math/Chemistry/Theology

Still have not registered 17 yo for CC

Dog desperately needs bath - stinky, stinky, stinky!

14 yo to rehearsal and back.

Not sure about dinner - maybe leftovers.

Walked the dog -since he woke me up 4x since 3:45, I figured I might as well take him for an early walk. At 5:00, he was barking like a mad thing at a box turtle in the back yard. He's nice, but not too smart!


To do:

Summer school



Scout shop

CSA pick up


Take Dd to church youth event and ds to the pool.

Faith - we had a problem with our AC this year - we thought it was finally giving out.  I switched the filter in the furnace so it would draw in more air.  Also, it had been very humid so it had frozen up.  To "help" it, I shut all non major vents.  Apparently that's a bad thing.  Don't do it. ;)  We also went down the basement and sealed the ducts with duct tape.  It was leaking a LOT of cooled air into the basement through cracks that had never been sealed by the previous owner apparently.


It's been working great ever since. (Thank goodness - it's 20+ years old and I'd like to make it to next summer so we can replace furnace and air all at once.  It's a regular prayer of mine.)







Dress shorties (DD(3) is already in swimsuit.  That counts.)

Finish mowing lawn - we're expecting storms tonight.

Weed the evil flower bed.   (The lilies keep making babies - anyone know how to stop it????)

Finish the planning for the kids 

Break plans into steps for Group 2.

Purchase calculator for DD for Algebra

Call trash removal company and figure out which of the new plans we're going with and figure out how  to get a BIG recycling bin

School - summer "lite" version

Run to town and get stuff for "camping" chicken that DS #2 wants to make for tonight.



Check library account and see if they checked in the five items that don't show returned from yesterday.  (Really, FIVE?!)

I am super excited.  Ds passed his college assessments and has placed into college English and college pre-calculus.  Yes, I'm bragging.  And I'm breathing a huge sigh of relief because I feel like I've passed as a homeschool high school teacher.  It only took me 5 years to get him through high school and to this point.

I had everything so well planned.  I had a meeting from 8:30-12:30 and my kids had camp from 9:30-4:00.  I arranged to drop the kids at a hotel where some other camp families are staying, so they could geta ride and I could get to my meeting more or less on time.  WELL I had driven about 5 minutes when I realized I had left my phone at home.  I thought I had packed it in my bag, because I told myself to do so, so I saw myself doing it.  :/  So I had to drive back home.  Then the freeway was like a parking lot.  I ended up telling the nice people who offered a ride to go ahead to the camp without my kids, rather than risk making them late.  I was even late to my meeting.  I made my kids sit on the floor in the back for a while and then I "took a break" to drive them to camp.  I used my phone's map system, but there was a mistake and it told me to turn left instead of right.  By the time I figured this out, I was 12 minutes in the wrong direction.  UGH so then I ended dropping them off late and getting back to my meeting late.  However, I told myself I was just going to pretend none of that happened!


I got some work out during the meeting, so that was good.


The list:

  • Did not get up early as planned.  Needed the sleep!
  • Got a little work out once I did get up.
  • Non-straightforward trip to meeting / camp (see above)
  • Work at boring meeting!
  • Free lunch after meeting.
  • Go home and work some more.
  • Go get kids & come home & work some more while kids snack.
  • Kids to library to pick up audiobook on reserve.
  • Kids to gymnastics & listening to audiobook.
  • Work at gymnastics.
  • Kids will want to eat after gymnastics.
  • KIds to bed.
  • Work.
