I have rarely looked forward to a normal day like I look forward to this one. We are finally coming out of our flu fog and school is back in swing this week. Hip hip hooray for simple problems like running out of eggs.
Speaking of eggs….we haven’t been on a full grocery run since before Christmas and we are down to eating rice and bits of mystery meat from the back of the freezer. There’s only so much soup you can feed teenage boys before you have a mutiny on your hands. Yesterday I found my 12 year old eating 4 toasted bread heels as a snack.
I may win a mother of the year contest.
So today a trip to the grocery store, after doing a few school lessons, will perk us all up. If only because there will once again be bacon in the house.
Over the weekend we did a round of deep cleaning and rearranging. There’s always some new need around here….a kid needs a place to study or my mom gives me a chair she doesn’t want and we have to move furniture to fit it in.
This inevitably turns into my version of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.” It goes something like this:
I think the kids were wondering what happened to “Kind Nurse Mommy” who brought them ice cream and stroked their foreheads. That’s my alter ego. My super-hero self. My true identity is “Let’s Get This House Clean and I Mean NOW Mommy”.
P.S.S. I’m getting super excited about the Homeschool Moms’ Winter Summit coming up this month. I will be at both conferences; the first in Oklahoma January 17-18 and in Texas January 24-25. I hope you will come and hang out with me. It’s gonna be such a fabulous weekend!
Thanks for stopping by….have a GREAT week!
