Tomorrow is the first day of our ELEVENTH year of homeschooling. We ALWAYS start off the year with a trip to Krispy Kreme doughnuts… but not this year. I just found out that the one near our house closed down. In fact all of the Arizona KK’s closed except for the one in Mesa. That a 56 minute drive (according to mapquest) for 1st Day of School Doughnuts. But it IS a tradition. Hmmmm. Maybe it’s time for a new tradition.
And yes, it’s because tomorrow is the first day of school that I have been a lacking blogger. Sorry, folks. The other day I was sitting in my green birthday chair in my room with my feet up on the stool…. and I realized that I need to make time every day for the things I truly enjoy….. right after the things that I truly need to do (specifically, Bible reading, prayer, exercise and eating right.) This got my mind a-wandering to those things I truly love…. water-color painting… writing… scrapbooking…. gardening….. reading. Starting tomorrow (since we are starting other important things tomorrow), I plan to add 30 minutes for ME! We’ll see how this goes.
Did anyone else notice the creepy little girl in the Krispy Kreme advertisement? I don’t know if this is good advertising on their part. She looks like she’s eaten 27 KK sugar bombs already and is tempted to bite the nicely manicured hand in the photo. One of those things in life that I find strange.
Happy New School Year to all those moms and kids out there. Do your best… teaching and learning! This is the most important job on earth!
