My kitchen is clean. Bless the beautiful child who worked so hard to wash, scrub, and tidy the kitchen before bedtime. When I left for Bible study, things were in a state of, um, not so pristine.
The house is quiet. Everyone is asleep and the only sound I hear is the gentle humming of the computer and a clock ticking in the hallway. I tracked down the buzzing, squeaking and moaning sound that was disturbing my tranquility. It appears the old kitchen computer may be ready for a little hospice care.
School is so much work! I’m just not a focused, discipline person. I don’t do well with schedules and deadlines and limited computer time. I definitely don’t appreciate the hours of the day having the temerity to arrive before 8 am.
Unfortunately it’s nearly impossible to complete all of our work unless we begin at an early hour. Even with that jump start, it is difficult to get everything done. Today we had piano lessons and some character “training sessions” which ate a good 30 to 45 minutes of our time. All it takes is a little bit and the whole family is de-railed and off the schedule.
Even the infamous school bell can’t get us back on track.
Needless to say, I need to get to bed. I can’t stay up late, blogging happily (and reading all my favorite blogs) until the wee hours of the night anymore. The alarm rings bright and early no matter what time I’ve fallen asleep. This whole homeschooling thing can put a real damper in the lazy lifestyle if you’re not careful.
But then just having kids seems to do that. It’s so hard to be truly selfish and lazy when you have a family to raise. I have certainly put in the time, trying.
