A day like any other....

Since we weren't intending to take a day off school, but we have - the boy is terribly sick and like most of the male species is requiring almost constant attention while ill. So here I sit, not grocery shopping or returning library books or anything else I was supposed to accomplish today and I thought "I'll just write my blog"! Here I am again folks - ready or not!
I have some dear long time friends who just put an offer in on their very first house! That first buy is so awesome - it also makes you want to throw up with all the waiting!! So, Shan and Jay I wish you the best of luck - I hope your dream comes true!
Last time I blogged I discussed my obsession with being obsessed about something, ANYTHING! Just let me plan and plot and do spreadsheets!! I guess it's the one thing about my old job that I can't get away from - need a spreadsheet? I'm on it! Want me to crunch some numbers? I'm there! I only wish I could organize other parts of my …

I must obsess!

It's official - I HAVE to obsess about something. I'm not sure what it is about my genes, character, or whatever it is that makes me that way - but there it is. Anyone who's read my blog more that twice knows that I usually obsess about homeschool. ANYTHING about homeschool - curriculum, schedules, am I missing anything, and on and on it goes. Well, since we have pretty much figured out what we are using and I've relaxed enough to realize that Zach is smart - but kind of lazy, he hasn't asked me a question that I can't find the answer to, and I'm competing with SC public schools. So, with the curriculum worked out for the rest of this school year and quite possibly the next few this left me with nothing to worry about all time. What do I do with myself if I can't plan out the next year? What do you mean I can't make chart after chart just to throw them away and start again? AHHH!! What do I do?

Well of course, me being Kris, decided to find …

Schedules

We very much have tried to start a schedule all up in this mess of school, scouts, housework, and all of life's little "gotcha's" that come along. Honestly, we have. But here I am, at a very early (or late!) hour writing. No, I didn't go to bed a wake up already either....

We did have a schedule somewhat together before we went on vacation and it was working pretty well. There was a lot less aggravation for both CG and myself. School got done before midnight, errands actually got accomplished, things were looking up for All Saints AND the mother/son relationship (as opposed to the teacher/student - which was also looking up). Now, somehow, we need to work our way back to the 'schedule family'.

Anyone who knows me, knows I'm not a HUGE fan of schedules. "ish" is a very real time in my world (we'll be leaving about 1:30ish - you know what I mean here!), so when I start thinking of ways to get back on schedule, you know this is a very …
