Who's going to tackle Monday with me?

So I managed a run this morning so yay me! :hurray:

I totally lost my stuff and screamed at my kid this morning so very not yay me. :cursing:


We are ramping up how much we try to get done each week, and a lot of that includes more reading. The kid loves to read but not to explain what he has just read so if today I can get him to coherent explain back to me a chapter of his book I will have achieved, I think.

To do:

school with ds3

oversee ds2




phone calls (must do at least one....)

try to figure out ride/transportation for ds3 on Wednesday

PM practice swim/aikido/swim

late pick up for aikido


Have a great day!
