    Default Tuesday Roll Call, 8/23

    Good Morning
    Full house of kids today.
    Dishes, laundry.
    COOL this morning. Mother Nature is whacked. We had 101 and barely down to high 60's at night Fri-Sun. This morning. 50* outside. While it feels lovely, it is like what?! Can we find a happy medium.

    Going to work on cover letter/resume with oldest. Will probably do it with both of them since we need to. And just easier.

    Goal, make it through the day!LOL
    And get the laundry put away.

    I do need to get the finches transferred to their smaller cage but OMG is that a PITA. I think I will wait until the weekend. Or next week. Or second Tuesday of next week.

    Have a GREAT day!

    Oh and pleased to announce that my morning email only had 32 emails when I logged on this morning. And NONE of them were from crap. It was actually 100% homeschool stuff today. I think my 3 weeks of unsubscribe dedication has worked.

    Just did one that showed up at 8am, Capital One offering car loan... no thanks.

    Same thing with my other 2 emails. Down to mostly homeschool stuff or bills.

    Finishing up school now with DS watching a Little House book on YouTube. Nice. We hit the park this morning at 9. Comfortable in the evenings now, but the mornings and afternoons are still pretty unbearable.

    Can't wait to get through this week. We are taking next week off. We have to do 180 days, and we will have 38 in the books on Friday. I hope to take at least a month off for Xmas and spring break then break with ps kids for summer. Yay homeschool.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.

    We aren't required a set # of days in Oregon. We always started in Aug. took a week in Oct., then a week for Thanksgiving. 2 weeks at Xmas. A week in Spring and week of Mem. Day off, then mid-June thru July off.
    Was basically a 9 weeks on, 1 week or so off.
    It was great.

    Whoop whoop! Got in here before dinner

    We are having a great day so far today. One of my dudes spent an hour and 37 min doing math this morning because “he was having so much fun”. We only have science left BUT eldest son asked if we all wanted to go out to lunch (tue/wed are his days off) SO, we will pause school and go.

    Tues(& Fri) are laundry day for me and I will be impressed if I get it all folded before next laundry day

    Dealing with the aftermath of a kid at M1's dojo trying to con money out of him, and the kid's parent's incredibly underwhelming response. Now I have a very angry, combative kid to deal with, and NO schoolwork getting done. Bloody hell.

    Oh Geez. It's been one of those days when you are just perpetually behind. I overslept, and so school got started late, and baby had her visit with her mother today so we were up against and definite ending time. We did get Math, Reading, and Grammar done, but did not get to our planned history lesson. So second day of school and I'm already messing up... ugh. We could be doing the history lesson now, but I just need a bit of downtime, and I think DD does too.

    GOAL: Do better tomorrow.

    Tues(& Fri) are laundry day for me and I will be impressed if I get it all folded before next laundry day
    Don't even get me started about the laundry. I subscribe more to the one load a day from start to finish method. I try to put in a load in the morning before I start much else, put it in the dryer at lunch, and fold while DH makes dinner. However I have not successfully completed that cycle in probably two weeks. I have gotten a lot of the clothes washed, but they are all piled on the counter in the laundry room. Where does all the laundry come from????

    Wooo hooo we did something exciting today! La Brea Tar Pits!
    The whole family (incl DH and Grandma) packed in my car to brave the wilds of Los Angeles, to visit the prehistoric death trap that Los Angeles was back then.
    And I braved a rather scary looking library to get a LA County library card! Wooo hoooo Nearly a hundred thousand books at my whim now!

    Tomorrow is looking good too - Grandma is going to watch the boys, DH and I get to have lunch together, then off to go shopping for downstairs flooring. (After therapy, of course.)

    Such excitement for me!
