06-something...the moon is shining brightly. That must explain the two grouchy Things that woke up soon after I took this photo.
0800: What's on the daily chore list? I've recently started to use the calendar from Motivated Moms. Much like FlyLady only with a nicer tone. Helps me stay, well, motivated...
1000: checking out the grocery ads and making my list.
1030: ACK: Thing One hasn't finished his valentines. Mom to the rescue (they are book marks with a note on the back saying "practice random acts of reading"). Thought it was appropriate since the boy always has his nose in a book.
1330: Managed to make some cards for their teacher (a male teacher: that was a challenge to come up with the right design. Thing One approved and wrote inside "Good Luck Ice Fishing. Don't fall in or you will get cold and wet!" Yeah, he's a real sentimental one, isn't he? The popcorn treats are for the monthly luncheon tomorrow at the school. This month's theme: snacks. It should be themed OVER KILL (yeah, my rant...why have a teacher appreciation luncheon on the same day as all the Valentine's Day parties? I'm so not a PTO type...I just bring what they need and keep my comments to myself...usually...)
2:45: Thing One...sporting the look that greats me most days. Poor kid, he works so hard to keep it together at school that when he sees me, he often just melts.
2:55: finally Thing Two approaches. He takes his own time...he visits with friends and gets to chatting. Time slips away. Hmmm...wonder where he gets this trait from?
4:30: Tutor Time. It's helping...they are both getting faster and more accurate on their basic math facts. Our school curriculum just doesn't spend much time doing the basics.
5:15: Dinner time. Hubby is out of town and Thing Two has scouts in 45 minutes. Have I mentioned I hate Thursdays? The pace is rather crazy...
6:00 Time for scouts. They are taking a behind the scenes tour of the library.
9:00: I realize I have only 10 photos and I'm too tired to go take two more. Instead, let's see what I can find online...Ah forget it...I've got a cold one poured and the TiVo is ready to roll. Maybe next month...I'm done!
