Who's going to tackle Wednesday with me?

Recommended Posts

Good morning!  i have got to find more motivation in my life.  I cannot seem to get anything more than the bare minimum done these days.

-coffee
-DS17 off to school (half day for Mass today)
-school with DS14 (including difficult writing assignment due to WTMA at 5 pm; still getting caught up for AP Computers class)
-finish up SC homeschool paperwork and email/mail off to where it belongs
-workout (yesterday's HiiT workout that I didn't do)
-more laundry (including baseball uniform that needs to be scrubbed)
-clean stove thoroughly
-organizing shelves in dining room (I have been putting this off)
-make some Whole30 approved lunches (buffalo chicken in crockpot is one idea, chicken salad is another)
-library to return book that is due
-grocery store if needed
-dinner 

ETA:  DH just informed me we are going to DMV today once DS17 gets home from school to re-do our licenses and tags.  I have a sneaking suspicion this is going to take all afternoon.....

  • office work (banking, emails, get messy desk under control)

  • pick up Heartgard, Dasuquin, and pill pockets from vet

Morning, all!  

Yesterday, I lost my car keys at a meeting; thankfully they were found later in the afternoon.  I had left them in someone else's car during a lunch run.  I felt incredibly stupid, but thankful.  Had to sit at Starbucks (tragedy) until dh could pick me up and go retrieve car.  Fun times...

To do today:

shower, dress, pack lunches

make copies of new unit, finish changes to assignment calendar

dr appt to check my blood test results, A1C levels 

hair appt for both dd and self

grocery store for essentials

read for 52 week challenge

watch tv, relax

Have a great day!

And my great start to the day was derailed by a “discussion” with a teenager. 😩 

I’ve been parenting for fifteen years, just about, and I’m still a rookie. That’s the “good” part about kids who insist on growing up. 😏

Good morning everyone.

human care is done

pet care is done.  Including cleaning up after Libby who got six inches from the door (really?) before having an accident.  And now after having some sliding down the stair incidents, I am having to carry her down stairs as well as up.  I guess that is my weight lifting regimen with really awkward weights.

Waiting to hear back from nurse regarding ds' vaccination requirements for college.  (I thought he was all done but we might have only done one in a two part series?)

I agreed last night to let dd sleep in this morning since the timing of the oral surgeon consult will make it impossible to do much of school before hand.

Stupid nurse refused to talk to me because ds is an adult.  I have the secret medical information in my hands because they handed it to me just yesterday.  But apparently I am not allowed to ask a non-patient specific question about a vaccine because somehow that is even more top secret.  (This might be a little bit of a rant.)

Hallelujah, dh's sibling who has the medical POA for FIL finally made the call and got him on a waiting list for a nursing home with a memory care wing. This should have happened at least six months ago. Hopefully, the wait won't be very long because FIL is definitely on the decline.🙁

My dh, who thinks that health care providers are responsive to consumers- but we have Kaiser- is fretting because the scheduler hasn't called us back. Given the Kaiser timeline- we should hear tomorrow. If not I will call then.  Or he can call today and fret at them. Just not at me. I have no control over Kaiser.

Put in the solar lights along the front walk. Watered, pulled some weeds.

Next up- make lunch for dd2 who is coming home. Wake up ds3- who needs to get some work done. Write a quick note for dd1.

The dishwasher is running, laundry is going.

Well, I was a powerhouse up to about 8am this morning, LOL.  I got the kids off to the bus on time with all their stuff, took out the garbage, and cleaned up the kitchen / bathroom.

Then I took a nap and woke up at 1:something.  Oops.

I replied to all the important emails and caught up on social media and news.

To do:

  • Client wants a conference call - ugh.
  • Make myself presentable to go out this evening.
  • Work work work.
  • Work with kid 1 on homework and AHG requirements.
  • Take kids to school board meeting.
  • If possible, shop for AHG party stuff we promised to provide.
  • Work with kid 2 on her homework and AHG requirements.
  • Whatever else gets done.

Up early (for me--I was checking cows at 1:00 am) because Scrapbookbuzz needed to get on the road. We had a really fun visit yesterday, but I think she's not impressed with our mud season!

Tried making a gag award neckerchief for a friend. Put the transfer on upside down. Made new neckerchief. Messed up the transfer. Refused to go buy more fabric, so I cut out a scrap, put on a NEW transfer, and now will sew it on. I'm over this! The upside is that now I know how to take a text box in Word and do a rotation!

Still looking for a piece of leather thong for a "round tuit" award for a Scouter

answered a Scout mom whose kid is quitting. Yeah, good luck with 4-H. There are still rules and requirements and your kid thinks he doesn't have to follow them. I wish them well. 

ate lunch, finally

checked cows

laundry

need to finish my walking, but it's still snowing, so I think it will be treadmill time

don't have to make supper--dh is eating at soup supper at church. I'll have leftovers

still need to paint tipi poles for more awards, and label the "Giant Pot" award and the "Ancient Order of the Coffeepot"

swept the porch twice. It will need it at least 2 more times. Ah, mud season. 

trash out--it's Wednesday

Yay, the client conference call is put off until tomorrow.

Kids don't have a ton of homework, but we have a lot of AHG stuff to do, and Kid 1 is being a butt about it.  On top of this, the unit leader is pushing something that I don't think my kid is ready for.  It is part of the cross-over ceremony, so doing it half-assed is not an option IMO.  Ugh.

I feel nervous about something, but I'm not sure what.  Am I forgetting something??

Well we got the cars registered in SC and are $1500 poorer.  DH and DS17 got their licenses.  Not me.  No ma'am.  Apparently the school bill that comes addressed to Mr. and Mrs. DH's first name/our last name doesn't prove that I live at this address, only that DH and DS17 live here.  What will prove that I live here, you might ask?  If I go to the post office and mail myself an empty envelope addressed to me.

My day was most pleasantly derailed when a dear friend stopped by for a visit. This almost never happens, but I cant think of a better way for my day to be “upset.” ❣️

Pink and Green, sometimes I think with each birthday I become slightly more invisible.

Maybe I should mail myself a letter.

Two new calves! As soon as dd finishes supper we'll move them into a shed--it's snowing, AGAIN!

 

Not one of the new ones, but cute just the same!
