I took the pixie to get her kindergarten booster shots this morning. She did great--just wailed and cried, didn't fight at all, despite getting two pokes in each arm. Next Tuesday is back to school night, where we can take their supplies in to the classrooms. And then next Thursday is back to school. I'll have next Thursday and next Friday all to myself from just after 7:30 until just after 3:05.
The Monday after they start back, I do. I'm damn near done with my textbook for Comp 1. I had to nearly totally rewrite it for what I want to do. I still need to modify the Comp 2 book, but that should be a matter of copy/paste grafting bits together.
I should be done with my texts long before I start back, thank goodness. Then, I can focus on getting the house cleaned up to the point that it's just maintenance keeping it that way.
I am still trying to work the FlyLady stuff, but there are times when I'm down for a week or more and can't get stuff done. It really doesn't help that when I do get to feeling up to cleaning, I've got two little ones following along behind me, "helping," and more often than not undoing any progress I've made.
I'll have two days next week to work without help. And then we can focus on maintenance cleaning, and I can teach the kids now what I wish I'd learned a lot sooner than I did: how to keep it that way.
