So I just tried to put the Fritos in the freezer, if that tells you anything about my week so far.
It's been one unexpected thing after another. Yesterday I forgot to put the roast in the oven on time for, you know, supper. Then Little Bit called my dad to see if they were home yet and could she come to his house and instead he said "why don't you all come to eat with us?" and then he swung back by our house and picked us up and took us to eat Mexican food. In the words of Little Bit, "Well, that worked out well."
My dad just cracked up. That girl is a mess.
Then when we got home and sat down for 5 minutes, S called. He needed us to do an errand for him right then. OK. Off we go. The girls had been trying to watch a movie and I assured them they could watch it when we got home. They did, and that put them in bed around 9:15. Asleep at....9:45? So...school will be starting a bit late today.
But it's OK because I HAVE A SCHEDULE!! And I'M FLEXIBLE!!
By the way, did you see Carrie's take on the wall schedule? I like it! The animals are a great idea. Our wall schedule has been the best thing ever for our school year.
Kellye! It was your picture that inspired it!)
Even though my week has not gone completely smoothly (as evidenced by the half-made baby quilt on the dining room table that has to be finished today--what DID distract me from that? I can't even remember.), we still are on track in school for the most part.
And that's one good thing about staying home a lot and not running around to every imaginable activity. Even though we are starting late today, we will have time to get done. We aren't locked into "OK we only have these 4 hours to complete school!" I would lose my mind.
I mean, even more than people who put Fritos in their freezer.
