Friday Night/Saturday Morning…

May 14, 2010

So I am sitting here after having watched the end of Narnia: Prince Caspian for the umpteeth time since we got it as I was studying my supreme pile of school work. Yes I was making an attempt at getting somewhere with it. And i think I might have made some headway in the math problem department and some in the reading department. But truth be told my heart isnt in it tonight. It just feels like a blasted mountain that I have to scale at this point. Like Mount Everest is standing right in front of me begging me to get on with it or get lost.

Go Hard or Go Home.

Ok I give. I want to go home. But there is a sadistic part of me that does not want to give up the fight just yet. I know I can do this if I can just find the focus to do it. And then there is a part of me that is doubting me. Wondering even if I bust it right here right now and totally give my all to it if I will actually get it finished in time.

ARGH! I hate doubting myself. I mean come on. I have how many weeks left until the end of the year…32 Weeks and 6 Days until the end of this year. Minus the four weeks of NaNoWriMo, which I will not miss for the world. Leaving me with 28 weeks and 6 days. Add January 2011 into the mix and that still gives me 8 more weeks to work with before the deadline. And there HAS to be some units that I will be able to do in less than a week.

Ok. I think I have myself settled … one unit plus a week until this is over 🙂 . I feel better now knowing that I have got it semi settled in my brain and I have a time line.

In other news my dear Hope took a header Thursday morning on her way into school and gave herself a giant super sized goose egg right where she has the last five or six time she has fallen. *sigh* I REALLY wish she would learn to put her hands out. Oh well there is a klutz in every family. I was my family’s klutz when I was younger. From the knee down I looked like a leopard with all the bruises and I did fall twice and muck up my face in the same spot a week apart. Shes ok just got a big ole bandaid on it at the moment.

And AJ has been been doing well with her issue with her supposed best friend. I know it took a lot of courage for her to stand up to her and say enough is enough. I am proud of her. And I am proud of all the hard work she has done with her exam prep for her grade one piano exam next week.

Kylie has started playing a tune that I recognized on the piano… and she doesnt know where it came from either. But I swear to god its the opening to ColdPlay’s Viva la Vida. Going to show her the song tomorrow and see if that is what she is trying to pick out. If so I am going to get the sheet music for it. Shes a little super star with the piano… did I ever mention the episode we had with her when she first started learning the piano? She tried to pick out the tune to Abba’s Money Money Money. Didnt do too shabby a job on it either but we ended up having to bribe her to practice the lessons by offering her the right notes for Money Money Money if she would practice for three weeks. Ha!

In other news I have four more working days left until I get to be a Stay-At-Home-Mom again for a day. Next friday is AJ’s piano exam and I have taken the day off for it as it is at 1030 in the morning. But that will mean that I will not only be able to walk the kids to school, but take AJ to her exam and come back in time to drop Ky off in the afternoon and then I should be able to swing a coffee with a friend while they are all in school and then back to pick them up at 310.

Yes I have the entire day planned out completely. I am sooooooooooo looking forward to it. I have been counting down the days since I got the permission to take the day off.

Otherwise life is good. I still love my job. (Two months tomorrow for those that are keeping score!) and so far as I know they all still like me there. I still get to see Scott at lunch somedays, not as much as before as he seems to always be busy as of late, but certainly I see him more than I did before!

I finally finished a shrug I was working on, but I am still struggling to get that website done. Never seems to be enough time in a day anymore. Or on the weekends either. Oh but I did get a new addition to my garden… a mauve hybrid tea rose 🙂


I dont want to sleep yet as the weekends are short enough without my sleeping early, but at the same time I am starting to feel the strain on not only my eyes, my brains but also my body as well. Oh well, Ill read a couple more pages in my text book, do another question or so and then hop off to bed.

Until tomorrow…
