if I start writing I will find something to write about.
Or maybe not.
Three cheers for kids who are old enough to follow orders and get the house clean. Even vacuumed. That's huge.
I did too much yesterday, by necessity, and so today is necessarily going to be rather gingerly lived, I'm afraid. A do nothing day...that is what I need...
So my to-do list for a "do nothing" day?
-Make a massive pile of waffles for the freezer.
-take in some jeans for M.
-re-work the waistband on a skirt (for me).
-do a bit of laundry (or rather, make one of the kids do a bit of laundry)
-make the kids do some school work
-update my blogs and work on some e-mails.
I might even run to the store and buy new batteries for my TENS unit...if I can drive.
Currently our family read aloud is Swiss Family Robinson. It's the perfect read aloud. It was written in the 1700's and is a thoroughly Christian story. We are a bit amused by certain mistakes, like there being penguins and flamingoes on the same deserted island in the tropics, but it's a very enjoyable adventure story. What is refreshing about it is not only the unabashed and blatant Christianity, but also the fact that this adventure involves a family, and not just some guys, or whatever.
Good literature should educate, elevate, make one want to strive for greater things, strive to be a more refined or better person, and help one use the English language better.
