Good morning!  This is my "turning over a new leaf Monday."  Going to workout 6x per week, not Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday and then give up the rest of the week.  Going to do Whole 30 for 30 days, not 5 days and then stuff face with chocolate cake.  Going to clean the bookshelves for real, no matter how much work it is to take the resulting bins of books to library or goodwill or co-op to get rid of them.



-workout (Great Glutes)


-take youngest to/from friend's  house

-grocery store

-dry cleaner (not good when DH's dry cleaning basket is more full than laundry baskets)

-work on summer work with oldest

-clean out messiest book case in school room

-get standardized testing letter out to county for youngest

-go through school supplies for both kids and see what needs to be replenished



-figure out whether I can teach youngest Discovery of Deduction or put him in the online class (my eyes glaze over on the first paragraph of the book)

-dinner (Whole30 compliant bacon "cheese"burger meatloaf, with roasted Brussel sprouts)

Carcassone with the hubby



School!!!  This month is SO much lighter than last month for appointments!  We are starting today.



Make some (loose) lesson plans for the next few weeks.



Get out fall tubs and organize fall clothes - note gaps in kids' clothes for winter.

Morning, all!


I'll follow the theme of "It's Monday...time to start a new routine"


We were hit with a financial tsunami this past week.  Time to start a new chapter in our lives.  


To do:


clean/purge dining room 

collect all the old curriculum and either donate or list to sell

clean out bookshelf, take donations to library

clean out storage basket, donate

vacuum/dust downstairs

go through clothes, assemble a minimalist wardrobe 

Today was supposed to be first day of school for dd.  Either school light, or start tomorrow.

Noodles/garlic bread for dinner



Have a great day!

kitchen is clean

tidied and took care of the stuff starting to creep into my clean dining room. 


OK - now tackle the laundry to get that humming before moving on to camp and cleaning for visitors.

I had a long list ready and somehow lost it, a couple hours ago.  Gave up, and now I changed my mind.  Procrastination shall reign!

  • Got up early to send out a big report.  [done]
  • Kids ready, packed, & driven to camp.  [done]
  • More work.  I have a lot of July 31 deadlines.  How many will I meet?  Hopefully all the hard ones, at least.
  • A little reading, yoga.  [done]
  • Should call the doctor about my kid's health.  Not really sure what to do.
  • Conference calls, UGH!  Can I skip them??  Please??
  • Should do some school paperwork and prepare the payment that is due tomorrow.
  • Some bills and stuff.
  • Some calendar stuff.
  • Pick up kids from camp.
  • Find someplace where I can buy swim goggles, notebook paper, gym shoes, and cereal in the east side suburbs.
  • 1 kid to math tutoring.
  • Walk with the other kid.
  • Kids fed, maybe a read-aloud, work on some Spanish.
  • Kids to bed.
  • Work.
  • Whatever else I'm forgetting.
