Most of the morning turning compost. Talk about a good workout.


School work with ds13 most of the afternoon


Cut out a quilt. I haven't done any patchwork since the twins came to live with us nearly 3 years ago.


Tomorrow dd and I are traveling by train to Melbourne for university open days!!!!! So excited. I am way more excited than dd. at the moment she is doing Open University Units as her pathway to university. Here parents cannot do transcripts and I cannot give her an ATAR. At the moment she is thinking of doing Industrial Design.

Good morning!  Another travel baseball tournament starts today.  This one I have to travel almost 2 hours to several times over the next few days.  Times have already changed for today due to weather last night.  I hate not knowing and it really messes up my schedule.




-try to do a load or two of laundry before we leave

-stalk mailman for Stitch Fix shipment

-library and post office

-leave for baseball game at 11:30

-dinner (no idea, may have to be takeout)

-scrub white baseball pants for tomorrow

-try to get workout in (either 1 hour on recumbent bike, or upper body weights)

-read and relax

-be Whole30 compliant

-get to bed early because first game is at 8 am tomorrow

We are struggling to get back into our school year schedule. Kids are too used to bring up later at night and sleeping in. I am the oh so mean mom for now, making them go to bed and get up on time. ;)

Breakfast and lunch are done


Most of ds' school is done. He asked for a break because a friend who's been on vacation is back in town and wanted to play online on the PS4. He's got 1.5 subjects left, so I was a softy and said yes. We'll work later this afternoon or tonight.

I went out to the car this morning to chauffeur ds to work per usual.  My new driver said "Where are you going?"  He drove himself to work this morning!  (He got there just fine.  He's a good driver.  I'm more worried about the rattletrap that he's fixing up.)  Woo hoo!  No driving back and forth!


human care done "good enough" but I will make myself more publicly presentable later.  Maybe.

Pet care done

Medical care done

Second half of the living room cleared of furniture and vacuumed.  (I will still have to do the stairs and landing tomorrow)


OK - I caught my breath.  Now to actually shampoo the carpet in the second half of the living room.
