Accountability Thread 4/14 to 4/20

Recommended Posts

Good morning! Back at editing and revision today, taking things one paragraph at a time for these two synopses I need to finish by tomorrow. I'm reasonably happy with the one (after four intensive revisions), and the last is still very rough, but it's the least important, and I think I should be able to revise it to something workable. I will likely get much more time to work on it in the future. So not so worried about it.

Other than that, just trying to have a restful day. I always feel horribly depressed at the end of one project, even if I have another one already in progress. Some rest, reading, and maybe a movie at some point. That should help. Boys are watching golf, playing on the computer, and generally relaxing too. May be a nice, quiet day.

Good Morning All,

Regular school work today but on the road.

DH morning dental appointment. 

Library to print some paperwork. 

Suppose to be near 80 today, so outside time for the kid.

We are doing spring break this week.  No School!  I have to get taxes finished today.  I did the city taxes, we owe $233 to the city.  But there's no form for part year residents and there is a part that is confusing because there's no accounting for the partial year residency in that line.  *sigh*  I think I am going to call them and ask about it before I go drop them off.

Tomorrow I am taking DD10 to spend the night with my mom, and then picking her up on Wednesday.  And, lots of cleaning and planning this week.

We might be taking a spring break here ourselves depending on how things go. We have to be out of this house by the end of the month so we have 2 weeks to close on our new house, remodel some scary plumbing situations, paint the whole house, clean the whole house, move in and clean the house we are leaving. 😱 

So I might not be around much the next two weeks. In fact, if you do "see" me, tell me to leave the hive and get back to work! 😄

Taxes are finished.  I called the city, they said to prorate the line I was confused about.  Hope that works, the W2 won't match, but they said pro rate it so I did.

I am also positive that I messed up the state taxes, but the "right" way is showing absolutely no tax liability and I know that can't be right.  

But since I am sure we are due some sort of refund for ohio, I will just send it in and let them figure out the mistake.

Good luck getting all that done!

She did some work this morning and finished the rest when Daddy was at the dentist.

She played at the park for awhile.

Ran some errands. 

Library #1

Lunch at home.

Dad is going to take her out in the woods to teach her how to build a shelter and learn about the environment around her. She loves the outside. She needs to learn what is safe to eat/touch and what is not. Its all part of her science and nature study.

He will be taking her fishing soon and she is excited. 

Library #2

Family game night

Whew! Yesterday was a manic Monday for sure. I sent all my revised materials off to my agent, watched the end results of a writing contest, and picked up some new stories to look at for revisions. These are so super polished, it's fun to go through and just spot places where "more", whatever more might be, can be brought out and enhanced. But it makes for harder thinking on my part. 

Boys did school, and we followed the coverage of Notre Dame and talked about history. Today, the boys have school, I have some writing and critiques to do, and I need to cook. That should be plenty. I'm supposed to be resting!

So...grrr...

DH just told me that he is taking Monday off so that he has a 4 day weekend.  Which, fine for him, but it's dang near impossible to get school done when DH is home.  I really wanted to hit the ground running on Monday.  

And, I was looking at next week, I forgot, DD10 has a dentist appointment on Wednesday.  It's first thing in the morning, 7:45am.  And she's going to be sedated because she's having a tooth pulled.  Which means pretty much no school for her Wednesday, and I am not sure about the rest of the week either.  

All of which means I am not sure how I am going to manage next week.  I really wanted to be gung ho about getting our last "grading period" done.  *sigh*  I dunno

Bible story, memory verse, devotional and a science mystery done.

Homeschool Co-Op this morning. 

She has a dental appointment.  For those who pray, can you pray for her not to be anxious during and that she handles the exam well. Also that if she has a cavity that it could be handled with minimal stress and discomfort to her. 

Possibly the park.

Art and science with Dad if they are up to it.

Thank God! She did awesome, Dad said. She does have a couple of minor cavities in the very back, uppers ones. They have 3 appointments for each one unless she does well and they do it all at once.

I was Easter shopping during appointment since Dad is back to work for 5 days starting tomorrow. Only time I would be alone.

Two days of getting myself seen to. Dentist for me on Wednesday, and today was health physical for insurance. My bloodwork is okay, but I have an odd swelling in my shoulder to be checked next week. School tomorrow. Boys are not amused.
