Slept badly last night.  Woke up at 1:50 and didn't fall back to sleep until 4:20 something.  But I am glad I got back to sleep even if I overslept a bit this a.m.


To do:

Take 18 yo to his first percussion lesson at 9

Read while waiting for him

Meet oldest dd for breakfast afterward

(meanwhile 15 yo is home taking a bio test)

In p.m. make chicken broth and do something with left over london broil

2:30 AHG planning meeting with Pi/Pa leader (here)

At some point settle down with teens and study for NLE

Dinner?  Whatever I can concoct from leftovers.

  • breakfast
  • laundry (lots of it) -- DD15 took forever getting her own done.  I will launder tomorrow.
  • exercise
  • go over calendars for the week -- I did for tomorrow, still have the rest of the week to look over
  • write up task list for the week -- started
  • confirm all med adjustments from recent dr appt have been accomplished
  • Add to today's list as I think of more
  • music lessons
  • meal plan for the week and today
  • maybe stop by a grocery store for one or two ingredients for tonight's supper



I cannot trust myself to do more today.  I've already injured myself and broken something, so I'm calling it good.  I can have a fresh start tomorrow.


Good night, everyone!

Good morning!  DH off again for the week on business, oldest has the day off of school.


-shower/get ready

-usual Monday school routine (while listening to youngest whine and complain that it is "no fair" oldest doesn't have school but he does...remind youngest for the umpteenth time that he finishes school at least 5 weeks before oldest)

-take youngest to 2 enrichment classes at co-op (Dangerous Book for Boys and App Design)

-laundry (at least 3 loads, preferably 4)

-feed everyone (no idea or prospects at the moment)

-get oldest to conditioning gym (stay for the 90 or so minutes and read in my car)



ETA:  so much for that plan.  Youngest just got out of the shower and showed me a huge/covers the entire side of his hip bite of some type.  He has had Lyme before, almost looks like an off centered bullseye. We live in FL so could be anything.  Off to call the pediatrician.  UGH.

Morning, all!  Still raining here...wanted to do something today, but don't know what and where.  


To do:

Target for Rx and returns

Pick up some bread, milk, and eggs

vacuum upstairs

lesson plan

research altered books on pinterest for an upcoming project


Sign up for drawing lessons!  I was humbled greatly this weekend at my art class.  In general, I lacked skills.  When a class description says no experience necessary, and you emailed instructor about no experience... :crying:   Yeah, I was bad. I gave one dimensional a new meaning.

Alarm clock ran out of battery while I slept.  Oops, LOL.  Luckily I got up at 9:something.


Kids are off school, but they have some work to do.  I hope they are responsible about it.

Pay some bills.


Review the kids' homework.


AHG spiritual pin work.


A science activity.

Well I haven't done a productive thing yet...other than surfing the board.


I need to:


  • get my reading done
  • Chart on a client
  • Stretch my stiff back muscle
  • Put heating pad on said muscle
  • Keep an eye on the rivers and check phone for er notifications
  • Dust living room
  • If all is well, drive to work and facilitate group
  • Have a cup of rooibos and fall over



Can I just say that I envy those of you who can dust a whole house in one day!
