Today was a better day and full of mid week fun. If this new normal, is what you call fun. In my estimation, a day where pushback from your star pupils is minimal is a good day. Indeed that is what today brought me. Or so I thought…..
I was quite happy with today’s progress until I got an email from the Mayor’s math teacher regarding incomplete assignments. While I had the foresight to keep a tight eye on Goalielocks, I lacked the perspicacity regarding my youngest. Imagine my surprise when I learned he was missing almost all of his math assignments! Fortunately, his math teacher is on her game and now I know I must micromanage him throughout the day as well. Oh joy!
In addition to teacher’s aide, I also played the role of tech support today. Goalielocks’ auto cad software was not letting him in to complete his work. Naturally, both he and his teacher were getting a bit frustrated with the situation. Tonight I was able to troubleshoot, uninstall, reinstall and get his account fully operational. Unfortunately, he’ll need to get caught up on the last week of work. The good news is he know and auto cad software at home.
I did sneak out for a couple of walks today, which was nice. The dogs and I didn’t make it too far since it was pretty hot out today. Nonetheless, there is nothing better than clear blue skies and palm trees! Of course, the dogs love being outside. Now that there aren’t a lot of people outside, there are birds singing and basilisks all over the place. In fact, that is how Anakin broke the retractable leash on Monday!
Today was the abs and arm workout for week 7 of BBG. As always, the workout was inventive and challenging. Truly, I never thought I could do that many push-ups in a single workout. I had planned on taking a virtual yoga class this evening, but I fell asleep on my couch at 5:00 pm. Apparently, one cup of coffee was not enough. The Mayor finished off my creamer in his morning coffee. That’s right, he has taken to drinking coffee.
I want to provide an important mid week update on our sweet Maya. Tomorrow it will be two weeks from her surgery. Excitingly, she will have her stitches (and as a consequence her cone) removed Friday. We are so excited for her!!!! She has been dying to play with her siblings, but they’re terrified of her big, blue cone. Unfortunately, her biopsy did not come back favorable. It was definitely cancerous. As you may remember, they found a tumor in her lung last February. They believe her lung and skin tumor are related. Fortunately, the tumor in her lungs has not grown. We should have more information on her prognosis come Friday.
Here’s a list of our day’s activities:
*Reading To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
*Studied and practiced Norwegian
*Watched It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the Moonstone
*Watched Remember The Titans
*Completed BBG day 3 week 7 arms and abs workout
*Took Anakin, Maya and Athena on multiple walks
*Worked on Obedience Training with Anakin inside.
*Pulled my hair out (again) managing my teenagers virtual schooling.
*Did our part to flatten the curve by staying home!
