Here’s my Friday update: I’m still emotionally exhausted. Just kidding today I’m both physically and emotionally exhausted. Probably because I made my workout commitments every day this week! Go me!!! Excitedly, I started my day by vacuuming and moping my floors for the third time this week. The upshot, of course, was that the house smelled great for a couple of hours. Such is life with three dogs and a house full of boys.
The lesson I’ve learned this week is that home schooling my kids even with a remote teacher is soul crushingly difficult. Honestly, I don’t know is you amazing teachers do it day in and day out. Kudos to you for being super human. Only my high schooler has work to do this week since he’s taking a few classes online. I can only imagine the fun I’ll have when both are back in school virtually.
Goalielocks did get some practice driving today when he drove up route Clubhouse to take my Mayor to the pool. Before you judge, I’ll have none of it. There was nobody else there and they weren’t there for long. Afterwards they had some social distancing with some buddies, who they went fishing with behind the house.
Thankfully, we live in South Florida and the weather has been perfect. Naturally, the boys could have stayed out fishing all night. Especially since the bass were biting today. Fortunately, all the boys fishing caught some nice sized bass, which makes for some happy boys. I loved seeing the boys outside fishing and not on their phones. Consequently, we may take them to the Everglades tomorrow to fish and walk the trails. It will be good get out of the house and into nature.
Meanwhile, hubby is starting to get concerned that we may run out of toilet paper before the stores replenish their stock. I tried to order some on BJ’s.com, but received a message that supplies were running low. Consequently, they wanted me to approve the replacement they suggest. The replacement they suggested was a box of printer paper. Yeah…. Wish us luck on that front. Finally, we will actually be taking our Christmas tree down tomorrow. Although I’m pretty sure Anakin would prefer that we leave it up. However, I have to admit I am sick of cleaning up the falling needles.
