Who's going to tackle Thursday with me?

Recommended Posts

The forum is going to be down from March 24 - 28.  If anyone wants to be a part of a Tackle Text list, you can pm me your number and I will set up a group text.  If you don't, then I'll just see you once the forum is up and running again.  (A couple of people have responded but this is for those who might not have seen my invitation yet.)


I don't have to take ds to treatment tomorrow morning!

Juliet - vaccinations that she didn't get on Wed. because she threw up right before she was supposed to get them.

Good morning! I will be off the board for a while-the forum break starts off my vacation! So I guess, tomorrow will be my last Tackle thread for a while. Actually, with dd2 gone, life is much like a vacation  :laugh:! Not too much to do today-mostly little things and phone calls.


To do:

work with ds2

work with ds3

ds2 to cc

daily chores

clean bathrooms


watch for results from dd2's meet

some online things

a few phone calls

pack a little


ds3 to tennis

figure out tonight (waiting for a friend to set a time-might be waiting forever :glare: )

ds2 to judo


Have a great day!

I lived through an 11am conference call.  Now life can proceed as normal ... until the next conference call.  :P

  • Up in the wee hours working and putzing.
  • Slept.
  • Kids up and off to the school bus - they had to run the whole way.  Hope the bus driver gave 'em hell.  :P
  • Took a nap.
  • Woke up and took care of some problems that would be TMI.
  • Worked.

To do:

  • Lots of work.
  • Amazon order.  Niece's birthday is almost upon us - I think her birthday gift will be late.  :/  No excuse other than I'm just tired.
  • Calendar.
  • Kids' work - finish Bible Basics badge, practice TKD form, any homework.  A little picking up kuz we are trying to stop being slobs.
  • Take kids to TKD belt test.  This is the last one before they try for Cho Dan Bo.  Hopefully they get Cho Dan Bo before summer as it affects how their summer classes will be scheduled.
  • Laundry - kids need gym suits for tomorrow.
  • Hand-wash performance leotard for tomorrow.
  • Whatever else gets done.

This is the last school night before class camp and then they have spring break.  So things will be different around here until April 9.  I don't think I'm gonna miss homework and grade stress.

Ordered online for grocery pick up tonight on the way to AHG. This is new for me, but it's free and seems like a time saver. We'll see. It took me about 20 minutes to register, fill my cart, pay, and download the app. Future purchases should go faster. The store is right on my way.

Doesn't eliminate the need to stop at Trader Joe's this afternoon, though. Just means I will spend less. :)

Math is done.
Dd is doing Latin, and Ds is writing to his pen pal.
Lunch figured out.

Next up:
fold laundry    not happening. Dh can fold his own today.
shower and dress
plan devotional for AHG tonight

human care is done "good enough".  Don't tell anyone that I haven't had a shower yet.  Someone beat me to the shower and I lost my window of opportunity.

medical care done



kitchen- dishwasher rebooted.

laundry - laundry rebooted

paperwork- dealt with some insurance stuff from the car accident

dealt with some hospice stuff for MIL

Had an early start this morning, trip to city, had to shovel driveway first. We kept on top of yesterday's snow -- I did my last shovel after midnight, lol. The snow makes everything so bright that it was almost like daytime -- not too cold, no wind, gentle falling flakes -- beautiful!


Out tonight, but kids have leftover meatloaf for dinner. I make Ina Garten's recipe, but with more meat (about 3 1/2 lbs beef/pork), so enough for leftovers.

Cleaned two bathrooms and dusted upstairs.


Cleaned out the fridge and cleaned the kitchen again.


Finished up laundry for the day and put away a basket of my clothes.


Figured out a tentative plan for dd's pony. First step will be sending hay samples to a lab to get tested for sugar and carb content.


Headed out for sanity-restoring horse time now. :)

Cleaning done, meat thawing, dentist appointment done, meeting with a babysitter done, cookies baked. Not much school done.


Remaining: kids to auditions, dinner, a week of schoolwork checklists for the kiddos. Pondering whether to join the stampede to the grocery store pre-snowstorm.

Not doing so great here.  Can I trade this old stupid body in for a new model?  (But preferably one that is already through menopause?)


I think I give up on the badge work for today.  I will force it on the weekend.

Jean, again, thank you for these threads. I don't post on them often, but it is always good to know you and the others in this thread ate helping get me through tough days. Just watching (your) items get crossed off helps me.

The kids passed their belt test.


I cooked dinner (something I don't usually do) and washed lots of dishes.  Kind of relaxing.


Homework is done.


Kids sleeping.


Read a little.


I am in a fix trying to decide whether it's better to try to sleep or not ....
