I’m not really looking forward to Monday. Rosie Girl is feeling MUCH better today and will almost surely go to school for choir and art next week as well as start her homeschool work. I’m just not feeling ready to get back to it.
Today was the first day that I haven’t had a significant headache in over a week. Much of what I’m feeling is just physical and emotional fatigue. I did exercise a little today, which I’m hoping will help.
I’ve already decided on some things to make next week easier to manage. Most of this week’s schoolwork for Rosie Girl is just going to be cancelled – she won’t miss much by not doing a week’s worth of grammar or vocabulary. I’m going to have her read her History and Bible assignments, but not worry about the accompanying questions. Her science is already going to finish before the end of the school year, so I’ll just make some adjustments and she’ll get all that in. Thankfully, she didn’t have a WriteAtHome assignment due this week – it’s not due till the 14th, and I’m confident she has time to finish it by then.
Mr. Math Tutor has kept the kitchen pretty clean and got the Christmas decorations put away. Not much longer before we can have our living room and dining room back to non-Christmas status. Our church is bringing us some meals so that we don’t have to worry about cooking for the next several days.
So I don’t think my problem is an overwhelming amount of work. It’s just recovering from the last couple of weeks. The headaches are rough and I’m learning to work around those. Add to that, Rosie Girl’s surgery and complications and it’s just been a long couple of weeks.
Wild Man and I may watch a few more movies – we watched documentaries about the War of 1812 and about Andrew Jackson this week – if I’m not up to keeping up with his reading. I am loving my new Roku box for educational movies!!!
I told my Facebook friends that I think we should start 2010 today instead of last week. Let’s leave the events of the last week in 2009 and start 2010 with a clean slate – whatcha think??
