Monday Homeschool Recess 2/4

Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play.  It's recess time!

Day shift.  Blech.  That's all I need say about that topic, LOL.  I was even tired and went to bed early last night, but my first phone call of the day was still a stupid person.  Yes, stupid.  That's the only word that fits, even if it's not a nice word Wink  Maybe now that I got that out of the way I can only talk to sensible people for the rest of the day?!?!?

DD has choir tonight, and I have orchestra after work.  Poor ds...he'll need a nice snuggle when I get home. I will gladly give that, maybe even more than one!

Do sensible people call 911? If you had good scence you would do a lot more to prepare to not need to call 911, like safety skills work and close observation of those who are vulnerable? I know sometimes stuff just occurs and we need more hands with safety knowledge, like choking on something, random windpipe failure, just happens in the human form.  Or old folks alone without continuous care providers, will find themselves fallen and can't get up,sort of stuff. Car accidents...little control of weather and driving conditions if you must work away from home...like at 911 desk, or something! Good luck getting sensible callers!

Lots of busy boring work here. Good I love my kid so much, that I just look at her to much. She is overly observed but so beautiful and fleeing is childhood for her, that it is hard not to just stare. Yet...stuff like vacume task and health care and safety chores steals away from constant obsvation from Mom. She does like clean towels and food in the fridge, so I must go do that sometimes! She is the one who tells me she loves to be homeschooled, while the others were happy to go away. Not always thrilled to be away, but ready to leave my observation and direction. So, how can I not keep her towels clean and fridge full, she loves me so!

Better get busy here...need to accomplish a ton or atleast makes list so I might geta bit done this week.

Cheers to all this happy Monday! Prayers to all not feeling the happy.

Good morning.  It looks like winter here! DS is about to go out and shovel.  Today is DS's last Microsoft class.  This was good introduction to what the computer can do.  Also, DH is finally ready (at DS's insistence) to upgade to the newest office.  Lots of school this morning and late afternoon.  Not much else planned today.

Oh, I love it when sensible people are on the other end of the phone!  Makes my job sooooo much easier.  

Actually, the person I had to deal with wasn't a 911 call though...a billing person who is a pain in my flesh but she outdid herself with the complete stupidity of her question this morning.  I can not wait until she retires.  I wish I knew how many days it will be...but I've not heard.  I will gladly host her "retirement tea" just to make sure she doesn't come back Sealed  I could perhaps tolerate her stupidity but she makes it her business to know the business of every one of us here.  She has our schedules memorized...which isn't easy because we have so many different schedules...and she constantly wants to know details of our personal lives.  I tolerated her nosiness until on two separate occasions she picked up PERSONAL MAIL that I had sitting on the desk next to me and started rifling through it.  MY PERSONAL MAIL that I brought from home.  She had no need to be in my stuff.  I never have HER stuff sitting in that spot.  Do it once, I brush it off.  Do it twice, you're lucky if I speak to you.  Ever.  Again.  LOL.

There, that's my story!

I walked to work with dh this morning because I had to turn in my time card and a couple of other things to talk with people about...I spent an hour or so working on the Wretched Egress Maps, and then went to talk to the Safety Guy about them...he gave me a bit of background...said he had first asked for them 7 years ago, but only maps for one building were forthcoming. (These buildings are weird shapes, so it's not a trivial task to draw a floorplan. And there's other weird stuff, like a storage room that has two doors on opposite sides that look identical, but one is always locked because it goes into an office, so that wouldn't be a good way to try to go out if there was a fire and you didn't have the right key. So many little details. I came home and fixed lunch for dh (salmon and rice and mixed veggies and chocolate, of course) and boiled a sweet potato for my militant vegetarian...I am not sure dd15 had any...am checking now, because we have to leave for town in a couple of minutes. This afternoon dd19 has printmaking and a piano lesson. I have some errands, but hope to have a little time to work on my project while there, especially because I might be getting sick and when I am sick I like to climb in bed with a cat or two and neglect my usual duties. No time for that this week, though! (dh said he thought he was getting sick on the weekend and it never went anywhere, so I hope I have what he did and it works the same way with me.) Deborah

Deborah, my dad had the "felt like he was getting sick but never really got sick" thing too.  He did take a nap and he went to bed early one night, so I know he wasn't feeling well, LOL.

He made it!  Zeph is moving on to the regional finals for the National History Bee!  They let us know end of day.  He spent the day moping since he figured no news meant he didn't qualify.  I need to put together a study plan and see what we can temporarily drop.  He's thinking math, but it is always math that we leave behind.  Very excited!
