- Planning meals after not having been to the grocery in about three weeks. A challenge indeed.
- Planning meals while waiting on the next family member to drop. A challenge.
- Planning snacks when family members cannot eat. Cruel and unusual, but necessary.
Staying at home, getting the house cleaned and disinfected. Re-planning errands that can’t be run with sick people at home. re-routing the week. Trying to burn time by doing organizing I usually don’t have, or get, or take time to do…enjoying the results.
Catching up on bloglines. Reading FAST, as much as I can. I’ve not read blogs in some time, except for regular friends. I’m seeing if I can clear my “cache” without hitting “mark all read” (which I have done, on occasion–much the same feeling as throwing away magazines you know you are never going to get around to reading, and you just want to feel caught up again!)
One I only scan about once a month, but always bookmark several things: Simple Mom.
Looking for inspiration for scrapbooking, should I ever get back to it. Finding some here and there. Seeing some new ideas for making cards, seeing as how I rarely have time to go out and buy one, but I can throw something homemade together in a pinch. Enjoying reading about it more than doing it today.
just enjoying a breath of fresh air from a change of pace in life, mainly. And the help of others to get through sick weeks (teachers, nurses, doctors, friends to encourage).
How to catch Boy Wonder up on homework without it taking all nine weeks. Their plan to let another student take the child’s planning sheet from class to class, write down their assignments, and gather any homework is lame if you ask me. It just is…for a 6th grade student, on many levels. I explained to the teacher that the page was lost half-way through the day last time. Took a week just to get the sheet…the work is due one day after they are back! So, a lot of “late” work turned in, one class, to a sub, who lost it.
Give me a break! She said she’d have a GIRL (she capitalized that for me for emphasis) take it this time, and it would be in the office available for pickup today. I am delighted and amazed.
I am all for just asking for help when best plans fail…all over that this week. Fighting 104 temps for two days with Red on double fever reducers; my coping skills are not as sharp as usual, if they ever were to begin with! The Hub went down today…his stomach is a mess, but he’s doing okay. I HAVE GOT to get to the store for more supplies in case I crump. I think I’ll break my policy to keep the kids home bored all day to survive this week. Must have more sick food. I may be calling YOU next for help otherwise!
