This week’s plans and projects

The good news? We finished our 180 days last month!

The bad news? I have a to-do list that’s a million miles long.

So… the trick this week will be to keep “doing school”—my plan is to do our science and social studies together and for each kid to do a bit of math and literature reading and then to also do read aloud and go investigate this amazing city that we live in—while making a dent in my to-do list.

Blessed Sunday! I’ve been spending the day in bed with a head cold, cuddling various and sundry children as they wander in and out, and drinking some of my vice, Turkey Hill Iced Tea, which my husband lovingly brought for me to soothe my scratchy throat. I’ve also kept busy in between naps checking out this awesome Waldorf Inspirations website and creating my About Me page.

Sunday, September 16
Today is Katie Grace’s baptismal anniversary! She was baptized 11 years ago, one week following 9/11. I remember how much peace and healing there was in her baptism. She was baptized by her godfather, a Lutheran pastor. He and his wife, her godfather, are good friends who are dearly missed.

Oh my goodness. It’s Monday. And not even the beginning of Monday, but almost Tuesday. For some reason I thought it was Sunday. Or possibly even Saturday.

This happens to me all the time. My husband shows up at 5:15, reasonably expecting dinner to be almost ready (or at least started) and I’m bopping around the house thinking it’s 1:oo, 2 at the latest. I don’t know why I can’t hold time.

Oh. My. Goodness.

It’s been about a billion years since I’ve written one of these posts!

Well, not quite. But it has been a long time! I finally feel like we’re getting settled in our new home. It’s only been three months! One of the upsides to being in a big city is that there’s always something to do. One of the downsides? There’s always something to do besides that thing you should be doing. I am learning to pace myself and say “no thank you!”

So, what do we have going on this week?
