Back to work and school today after a 3 day weekend! It was a glorious weekend full of fun with the family! We went to the fair, grilled burgers and hot dogs, watched a ton of lame horror movies, played some Wii, got some yard work done, and painted a wall in the living room. The perfect balance of lazy days mixed with enough “I got something done” to not feel too guilty about it, lol!!
Only 15 more days of school left! Can’t wait! On the down side, my 7th grader is smack in the midst of a research paper. I’m not sure what the point of giving kids a paper to write this close to the end of the year is. Blech! We are talking full on, detailed bibliography, turn in your index cards, graded rough draft and all. If you are reading this, and would like an extra entry to the current giveaway, post the word “summer” on the giveaway post. Believe me, I don’t mind putting time in on a research paper, but trying to get J. to sit down and concentrate this close to the end of the year, when the weather is gorgeous out is like pulling teeth. Out of an alligator.
In other news, well, there’s not too much going on! Trying to finish off reading a few books for review as well as researching my own. Got a bunch of things brewing in the art/alchemy room, lol! And made the most delicious peanut butter pie yesterday (recipe to come!).
Hope all your Tuesdays are off to a great start!!
