Making excuses.

This morning, I'm going to take mom to the doctor and we have a rule that if you have a doctor's appointment, you're excused from your list for that day.  However, this is not my appointment, I'm just going along.  So does that count?  Do I have to do my housecleaning and all that or can I just take a break this morning?  Can you see where my younger son gets It?  From me. 

However, he did get up early yesterday and finish his schoolwork before noon, in a move that surprised us all, and (he's going to be sorry when he realizes this) proving that it can be done and this stretching it out until 11:00 p.m. is ridiculous. 

Anyway, I guess I should do a few things around the house before I go.  I'm really starting to feel the need for a spring break.   I have the urge to get some spring cleaning done (can you believe that?)  The only problem with taking a break is it takes us forever to get back on track again.  Weeks.  So I don't know if we will take the chance and take a break or just keep plugging along until the end of May.

I have a lot of household jobs that need doing like defrosting the freezer... and I found a cockroach again, so all the kitchen cupboards have to be unpacked again. (Did it just the other day.) I find it very hard to do after a morning of intense homeschooling. How you do it all with the hospital job as well really amazes me. And then you still find time to read a lot. (I also love Jane Austen by the way.) And you have a good sense of humour (strategy... ha ha). To me you sound like superwoman. Have a great week. Hope your mom is better soon.

Thanks for saying so, but I'm far from superwoman! My secret: I skimp on housecleaning! :-P

Actually, the kids help quite a bit and they do a lot of the homeschooling on their own. Also my husband is able to pitch in with some of the homeschooling too.
