So I'm sure that those of you that read this blog a lot (I think there's what, 2 of you?) have noticed that it's been a little slow this week.
February has come in with a bang in our family, with us running around to various commitments and keeping up with school or work. Somehow, I have to find a way to keep up with blogging in the midst of all this, only by the end of the day I sit and stare at the screen and the only thing I can think of is a cup of tea and my pillow.
I am so TIRED.
What have we been up to? Here's the week in bullets. Because I'm lazy, too.
*On the trip planning front, the lovely states of North and South Dakota sent us some great travel info packages. Which had Jake running to me every morning and saying, "Can we go to this gold mine? How about this tour?" while I was brushing my teeth. I have yet to pour over the information and do research online about them.
*So Jake is now registered in grade 7 online science classes. I think he'll like them, because the curriculum has chemistry in it. Yay! We didn't start this week because we just didn't have the time.
*I applied for loads of part time jobs this week, and we'll see what happens.
*I also started some of my online courses. The one I'm in now is pretty easy, but requires time and reading.
I'm excited to be starting the other ones too!
*Jake also had a skiing field trip over in the city this week, which required me to rustle up some snow pants and other various ski gear. Which, in this town, is next to impossible. We fortunately found the snow pants at a thrift store for $3 and the rest of the stuff was all 40% off. However the $260 price tag of the trip was enough to make us...um...choke a little. Ouch! However all that plus getting up at 5 am to get him to the ferry on time was worth it, when Jake come flying through the front door at the end and announced it was the most fun he's ever had in his life. *I* get to go with the class next week. I'm so excited!
*Jake also had a big social studies project due on Friday, which had us working every night all week to get it done. He did a presentation on the Navajo people, and a big poster. This is a kid that doesn't just do a bit, but wants to make the project so much more complex and in depth then he has to, so he always goes way above and beyond the directions. Which makes it very interesting for the rest of us.
*And besides all the meetings and commitments for work and other stuff, we had normal mundane stuff going on like getting the oil changed in the car, cleaning the house, that sort of thing.
I'm so glad it's Saturday and I can just sit and relax. I still have to go grocery shopping and clean the house a little, but then tonight I'm going out for tea with a friend.
Have a good weekend everyone!
