The Week Where I am Getting Very Little Done and I Kind of Don't Care

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.)
