The house isn't spotless but I did cook a real meal (tacos, quesadillas and rice) and cleaned the kitchen and brownies are cooking to their death in the oven.
I know I just bitched about not having as much alone time on my new schedule as I did on my old one and guess what has floated upstream for me?
BB(10) thinks he would like to be homeschooled. This doesn't appear to stem from any bullying or anything going on at school. I am all for the idea. He has problems sometimes picking things up and I think if I could work with him alone he could learn easier than in a classroom with 30 other kids. Sweety has tossed the idea out to EW and she didn't immediately freak out. The only problem is my pesky job. I almost have to keep it because the boys are on my insurance. If Sweety were to carry the whole family on his insurance it would cost a horrific amount more than what we pay through my plan. We shall see. We have the rest of the school year to poke the whole idea around.
Stinky dog Tasha is going to the beauty shop tomorrow! She is very excited. I am very excited. I hate bathing her and then dealing with the mess of a wet dog. And clipping her nails? Sheesh, you'd think I was trying to cut her kidney out with the way she carries on. It will be nice to drop off one Stinky dog and pick up a nice fluffy dog later. And the place is trying to scrounge up business so I think they're pretty cheap. Maybe I can get her toenails painted. I think that would make her feel extra pretty. While the main source of dog hair tumbleweeds is gone tomorrow I'm going clean the floor with my shiny new carpet cleaner.
The boys got their birthday present a little early. It's one of those game tables that you can play air hockey, ping pong, table soccer and pool on. They love it. I'm happy to see them have something they like to do besides burn their eyeballs up playing a video game. And this is something that I can play with them - unlike video game football.
We are slowly weeding out the toys that they have outgrown and replacing them with other things. I can't wait to get the toy room rearranged after I clean the carpet tomorrow. The fun I have planned!
