Just so you know, I haven’t been watching soap operas (we don’t even have TV) or eating bon bons (maybe that would have helped!) This week has been one long blur of activity and busy-ness. On Monday morning I figured out that school starts in one week. Homeschooling, that is. That’s when my life gets a schedule and free time is minimal. The week before school starts is usually spent getting everyone’s books straight, cleaning the book shelves, sharpening the pencils (really!), testing all the felt pens and throwing away the bloopers, etc. BUT, on Monday morning I also figured out that it was the last week of “freedom” to get stuff done around the house that hasn’t been done for….. well… some of them FOUR years. (Sad and disgusting, I know.) So I made a TO-DO list for my unsuspecting family. Here it is:
And There’s my hubby too… on the fridge.
The list had more than 50 items to be done and on Monday alone we finished over 25! I was thrilled and exhausted. We have slowly accomplished more of them as the week has drawn out. The ones that are left require my husband to help…. or a task that I’m not exactly sure how to handle. Then if cleaning and painting and wiping weren’t keeping me busy enough, my book came back for me to proofread!
So that was another day of not getting ready for school OR checking off items on the TO-DO list, but I’m glad that task is over. I’m officially done with my part of Laughing in the Midst of Marriage. It’s ETA is Mid September, I think. I haven’t actually heard a date, but I saw on www.christianbook.com that it is pre-selling with a Sept. date for shipping. Cool!
So THAT is why I haven’t blogged since Monday. It’s not that I stopped having crazy things happen to me, or that I didn’t have strange stories to tell. B~U~S~Y with a capital B.
