    Default Monday Roll Call, 9/26

    Good Morning!
    Ready for the week?

    I am rolling. Not ready but, I will get there.
    Long busy Fri/Sat. I survived. Did nothing more than laundry and dishes yesterday. Today, I am cleaning up the rest.
    Small house and lack of lots of cabinets means everything has a space. And most of the time, that space is stacked behind 6 other things which you must remove to play the Tetris game of putting it all away. Have company, you break out all the stuff. Have company for fondue, you get out even more stuff you don't use regularly. Result= lots to put away today. Oh well.

    2 little kiddos. LOVE easier Mondays.
    2 teens.
    DH went to work. His new schedule starts today, 7-4 daily so need to remember that. Last 90 min. of my day, I have an extra "kid"!LOL

    And we are to get WARM today 85+ today. What? Where is Fall? Not that this isn't nice for the last of the garden but....

    Hope everyone has a MARVELOUS Monday!

    Totally not ready for today. Allergies or a cold are going to make this day a long one.

    I am looking forward to the debate tonight. Maybe it may be the train-wreck quality, cannot turn away from the carnage, type of thing.

    Mondays are my busiest... I am running around all day, it seems. Half day at the charter school, therapy, swimming at grandmas, then haha good luck getting a little bit of math done before dinner.

    Probably wont watch the debate here... maybe Im a head-in-the-sand-pessimist, but I dont think I will be changing my mind on the candidate I will be voting against, and Ive never cared for showboating.
    Instead, I will try to read some Simplicity Parenting, inspired by an article TFZ posted here.

    I'm just getting up now. We all had a bit of a rough night, but nothing planned today. I probably should email the coordinator about the PE day tomorrow. Make sure there is nothing last minute I need to do. I'm really hoping she mostly has it handled. I do not do well running PE. I bought some canvases yesterday. I'm excited to try out some paintings. I'm thinking I might take more than just colored pencil drawings to the December sale. We'll see how that goes though.

    Getting in the groove of a crazy busy week.
    We took a super fast trip to my family reunion this weekend too so I'm starting out already tired, and behind from being gone this weekend.

    So much drama in fostercare land, but we found out that after several weeks of overnight and weekend visits, that baby will be going home for good this Friday.

    so on top of everything else, we decided to have a little birthday/goodbye party for her Wednesday evening. She's going to be one in two weeks, and we just want to celebrate with her, and of course there are no guarantees about whether her mom will let us see her after she goes.

    Got most of our work done this morning, just doing some Grammar and Social Studies after lunch, then lots of errands to get stuff for the party.

    Looking forward to watching the debate tonight too. Should be interesting however it turns out.

    I got the last of the prints from Teemie's annual photos. I forgot to take into account the cropping on the 4x6 so at least one photo I have to reorder. I didn't like the one 8x10 I got either. I may see if my grandmother wants some copies and then tack mine onto her order. I have some free 4x6 prints on Shutterfly still. I just don't want to pay to ship one photo. Shutterfly has excellent customer service if I complained they'd probably fix it anyway. I'm going to see if I need more photos though, feels like the best route.

    I'm not going to watch the debate. There's nothing anyone can say at this point to change my mind on how I'm voting and any notable train wreck will be all over social media tomorrow.

    Awww TXlib.... is it hard saying goodbye to a fostered baby? At best I imagine it would be bittersweet. But a baby in foster because mom is a drug addict... seems like itd be harder than a normal family "reunion".

    It was great you were there to take care of her and nurture her these past months. *hugs*

    It's gut wrenching hard, and bittersweet, and wonderful, and nerve racking, and every feeling in between. This is our fourth baby to go home or go to family and it doesn't get any easier, but I don't think I want it to be easy. If it was easy, then it's because I didn't really care about the kids, and that wouldn't be fair to them.

    I feel pretty good about this baby's mama. She's worked really hard, and she's been clean for eight months, and has made a lot of progress towards getting her life together. I feel pretty confident that as long as she stays clean, she'll do well. I also think she'll let us continue to be a part of the baby's life as she grows up, but I don't know for sure.

    Thank you for your kind words.
