Recovery Day

We've called a Teacher Workday over here at the House Revised. School has been....sketchy the last few months. Mama has had the energy of a slow loris and we've gotten only the bare essentials done each day.

One day, after rising bright and early at 8:00am, I took a nap on the couch at 10:00am. We'll refer to that as the "low point", OK?

Thankfully, because we are using Sonlight this year, the show has been able to go on, at least a little bit. Sweetheart has been able to do her independent work and I can sit on the couch and do read-alouds. Little Bit and I have kept up with her "100 Easy Lessons" for reading (we'll be finished by Christmas!!! YAY!!!) and her Sonlight read-alouds and there has been a lot of math practice.

Other than that? Not so much.

See? Mom sits on the couch while Sweetheart does her timeline and Little Bit apparently is reading to her pillow pet. I don't know. 

But I am now officially in my 2nd trimester and sure enough, my energy is returning. I think it's been 2 or 3 weeks since I've taken daily naps. So, I have decided it's time to get back with it. I am going to plan today through Christmas, and hopefully beyond. School is top priority around here as the wonderful baby news shortened our school year by a few weeks.

But the good news? That's OK in homeschooling!!! You can get caught up.

Also, the house is still in party mode, with dining room chairs scattered all over the living room and gift bags and tissue paper everywhere. What? I was resting yesterday!

Our homeschool group's Thanksgiving feast is this week and I can't wait for that. 1. I love Thanksgiving and 2. I love our homeschool group. The best of both worlds!

I'm off to eat waffles, do laundry, and plan school!


  1. Can I just tell you how excited I am you are pregnant?!? :)

  2. Ditto, Karly!! When are you due, anyway? :D

  3. Karly, you may say that as often as you like!


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
