I found a minute to pop on…. Kiki is taking a "tv break"….. We are trying hard to get caught back up on her school work – it’s the price we pay for taking the trip to Virginia, I guess. This is something I will not miss when we homeschool on our own in VA. Most homeschool moms I know, if "life" happens, they just skip certain parts of their planned schoolwork – being in the co-op, we have certain guidelines to stick to…. part of me would just like to quit, to be done for the year…. "throw in the towel" so to speak…. if it wasn’t for the fact I have to be there Tues. & Thurs. anyway to do my coffeebar job, I probably would. Because it would be nice to just stay home, work on this horrible house, and not have to deal with teaching school at the same time. That would be the benefit of having your child in full-time school, I suppose…..having someone else in charge of teaching your child, so you could be at home alone actaully making some headway in housecleaning…. sounds nice at the moment. I’m trying not to freak over her bad grades – she’s a bright child, it’s only 5th grade, it’s not the end of the world….. however, the low grades upset Kiki. Not enough for her to work harder….. huhm.
My mom came over to work again this morning….she finished the pantry. I guess it’s a good thing; when she came I was curled up on the couch reading and drinking coffee… and I could have stayed right there! I got a few things accomplished since she was here… so that’s good. Don’t ever let your spouse move away without you. It sucks. The realtor is supposed to come over the end of the month – that’s just next Friday. Yikes.
