The Simple Woman's Daybook 9.14.09

FOR TODAY 9/14/09

Outside my window...It is raining, the perfect day to sleep late, so why am I up?

I am thinking...about teaching math to FB today. Must teach the base 4 system. I am really questioning my decision not to put him into the math class at our tutorial!

I am thankful for...a quiet, peaceful few minutes this morning before the rush begins!

From the learning rooms...UGH! Having a rough year so far. Having to force myself into action every day! Teaching base 4 and the binary and hexadecimal systems this week are not helping!

From the kitchen...Should be lasagna, however, it should have been lasagna last Wed. when I pulled out the meat to defrost, pretty sure I shouldn't use that meat now so we may have to rethink the dinner plan!

I am jean capris and a short sleeved hoodie--Clinton and Stacy would be appalled!
I am creating...I am dreaming of creating a work box system in our home school. I am actually creating nothing!

I am going...a little crazy this year, please tell me there is an end in sight!
I am reading...Ha! I have a counter FULL of books that I am NOT reading, but that is all, other than my Bible!

I am hoping...that we will get into a better routine and that school will go smoother. I don't think I can survive a whole year of this unharmed!
I am hearing...the dishwasher humming, the rain falling and my pillow calling!
Around the house...Laundry everywhere, Counters cluttered with ideas, books, etc on how to make school go better, no house blessing in a month--I am falling helplessly behind and the housekeeping fairy is not answering my calls!!!
One of my favorite things...The unbridled enthusiasm for life found in my Tigercub. He is just so happy to be alive!

A few plans for the rest of the week:Dentist appointment for Dancer today, Dance on Tues. and Fri., hand bells and choir for the kids, tutorial, guitar lessons, and the ballet Thursday night!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Sorry, haven't taken any pictures lately...but I am pretty sure this is what you would see if there were a picture of me around anywhere!
Have a great week!

I hope things get less stressful for you soon - it sounds like you've got a lot on your plate at the moment!

Best wishes,

Hang in there! I get a bit overwhelmed at the beginning of the school year too...trying to get a decent routine going, keeping up with housework, and still finding some time to myself. I can't imagine what it must be like homeschooling. I really admire all of you moms that do it! :)

Have a great week. Send some of your rain my way, ok?

I think every school year begins with a bit of chaos -
I'm sure it will smooth out as you go along.
Thank you for sharing your very Human daybook -
it's an encouragement for all of us who fall a bit short of Perfect!
