Monday: I procrastinated something and had to get it done or else suffer the consequences of being a person who didn't keep their word. We ran errands for most of the day to accomplish this.
Lesson: Stop committing to extra stuff. I homeschool and that needs to be enough for this chapter of my life.
Tuesday: Not a bad day. All school completed and I folded and put away four loads of laundry. Felt good.
Lesson: Fold laundry while teaching school rather than knit. I feel way more productive at the end of the day and it makes getting ready for the next day so much easier when I have clean clothes readily available. (Duh.)
Wednesday: Got up, felt sick, got sick. Watched a documentary with the kids, complained on Facebook about how crummy I felt and how I wished a package would arrive in the mail. My sister-in-law, Carly, commented that their "package" should be delivered later in the day.
Lesson: Complaining on Facebook keeps me in touch with the rest of the world.
Thursday, 3am: My brother phoned to tell me that their SON had been born. I phone various relatives to let them know as well, and then I'm too excited to sleep, so I clean the house for an hour.
Lesson: More people should phone me at 3am with good news.
Thursday, 8:16am: I'm still in my pajamas after sleeping in, the kids are watching TV while I muster up the energy to go take a shower. Part of this mustering includes writing a blog post. Now I can say that I have completed something today.
Lesson: Whatever, I have a new nephew!
(And Michael took the car to work, so I can't justify cancelling school to go out and buy cute baby boy stuff to send to my new nephew. Boo.)
