Who's going to tackle Friday with me?

TGIF everyone!

 

Thank God that I don't have to go to the college super early. Ds took his Friday test on Thursday instead, which was a bit of a surprise but he seemed to take it in stride. 

 

school

grading

ds to college and work

call that doctor that has been on my tackle list for a week now. 

Barnes and Noble?  Dd has won her first paperback in our classics reading challenge

Can I please just be lazy today? 

 

It's nearly 8:30 and although I have heard the noises of the kids waking up.....no one is actually out of bed yet.  Which means I am going to have to go DRAG them out of bed in just a bit.  And that takes work.

 

I don't want to go do my walk today.  I can probably skip it today, but I also know that if I do, it just makes it that much easier to skip tomorrow.  But if I do it, I have to take the kids, and DS4 in particular can be a bit difficult after the first 1.25 mi.  Plus, it's chilly this morning.

 

I don't want to argue about school today.  There actually haven't been too many arguments, but more like nagging.  With the nice weather, the kids are easily distracted. 

 

I don't wanna clean my van, I don't wanna empty out the kids clothes, I don't WANNNNnnnaaaaaaaa!

 

I just wanna lay around and be lazy.  Can I do that?

 

No?

 

*Sigh*

 

OK so I guess here's today's list.

 

School

Clean out van since it didn't happen yesterday. 

Clean out the kids old clothes so the new ones can be put away.

Fold the new cloths that are in the dryer and put them away.

make my grocery list

Go to bank

Take my walk

clean up the dining room table

 

Blah.

School  DD8 is finishing up, DD6 and DS4 are done, so I am crossing this off

Clean out van since it didn't happen yesterday. 

Clean out the kids old clothes so the new ones can be put away.

Fold the new cloths that are in the dryer and put them away.

make my grocery list

Go to bank

Take my walk

clean up the dining room table

 

 

Once DD8 is finished, I think I am going to go hit the bank, and I might take the kids to the library.  I should, because DD8 needs some new books to read, plus I want to pick up a couple readers for DD6 to get started with.  But, I shouldn't because I don't have anything else on my list done and going to the library is just procrastinating all that.  Plus, the kids just want to play with the toys.  I dunno. 

 

I don't wanna do anything! lol

We got home last night at 11:30 and discovered a significant leak in our basement.  Need a plumber badly.

 

Also, I look like a battered wife due to the effects of my broken nose.  :P  Wish I didn't have a cold / runny nose so I could stop touching it.

  • Worked in the wee hours.
  • Got up early to send out some work.
  • House guests left this morning.  Helped them pack the van.
  • Arranged for plumber to come.
  • More work.
  • Might sneak a nap.
  • Kids are pretending to sleep (actually playing on their electronics), but I'm going to give them some book work to do later.
  • More work.
  • Not sure what I'll do in the evening.  Been out to dinner 3x this week so I don't want to do that again.
  • Kids need to go to bed early so they can leave for a field trip early tomorrow morning.

Freak accident.  I was in a big hurry to get to the post office on the 18th before they closed (tax deadline).  Got in an even bigger hurry since I had to come back home for a paper I forgot.  Yanked my car door open, somehow my nose was in the way - maybe I was bending trying to stop from dropping some papers - I really don't remember.  But boy did I whack my nose hard.  :P  Crunch!

 

So basically it was the IRS who broke my nose.  :P

God is good.  I didn't know when ds' test got moved that every single route to ds' school was going to involve construction.  One line was backed up so far that we joined a whole bunch of cars in turning around and trying a different way.  We ran into more construction on the alternate route but it didn't have a back up so all was good.  But the especially good part was that if ds' test had been today, we would have been late.  But because he had to take it yesterday, he could arrive to class later because the rest of the class was taking the test for the first part of the class.  (Ds has some test accommodations.)
