Hitting You With a Quickie.

21 May

The last couple days have been really busy. So I’m just posting another short update.

NK is much better. All symptoms are gone! And she’s back to terrorizing and running the house.

I am way behind on lesson planning and grading and household chores and pretty much everything I have to do.

Back to school tomorrow, so I have to grade all papers and get the week planned out before bed tonight. On top of that, there’s laundry, and every room in the house needs a smackdown.

I’m taking programming and writing courses, and those are also taking a hit.

So much to do. So little time.

I always say I need an assistant. I do. Or SOME help. It would be much easier to fold clothes if NK wasn’t also unfolding them. It would be easier to grade if she wasn’t screaming the entire time. Can a stay at home mom get a nanny? Sounds silly.

So, my todo list for today reads:

  • Clean entire house
  • Grade mound of papers
  • Lesson plan and print lessons for the week
  • Blog a few things we are working on this week
  • Catch up on programming classes
  • Catch up on writing classes/readings
  • Writing
That seems like a lot. I probably won’t get all of that done. Nope. I won’t.
The good news is that I’ve got 3,000 words of my book done. I have a goal of 80,000 words for my first draft. Long way to go, but I am feeling like I’m on a roll. No blocks right now. Ideas are flowing. Wish I had time to write today, but I’ll probably have to stay up extra late if I want to do that. Not just late…extra late. LOL
Aside

Shots Are Evil.

I have a headache today and the baby is still sick.

Needless to say, this will be another quickie.

ImageNK’s fever comes and goes, and she’s battling a bout of loose bowels. This is totally uncommon for her. I’m almost positive this is from last week’s immunizations. I have a rant on that. But no energy to post it today. I’m peeved and sad for her at the same time. Some of the immunizations she got, I don’t think are necessary right now. If the risk factors are unprotected sex and drug use, why does my year old baby need it? *sigh*

It’s been one of those days.

On top of her being sick, I still have a ton of papers to grade before Tuesday. (Our school week runs Tues-Fri). Actually need to finish before then to plan next weeks assignments. Yes, I plan week to week. I really wish I had time to plan further out. (By plan, I mean get everything typed up in the planner so my daughters can login and view it from their computers and Kindles. I already know what we need to do.) Maybe in the future I’ll be able to pull off a month at a time.

Some good news is that SM (14) pulled a 100% on her math quiz. It was really just review, but hey, we like it! LOL

Calgon Please.

17 May

I’m going to make this quick. Today has been a LONG day. Or so it seems. Maybe I just get up too early? Anyway, NK ended up with a fever of 101 last night. I bathed her and got it down. She seemed okay this morning, but then fever crept back in. She’s been super clingy and whiney. Just not feeling herself. I didn’t get much accomplished from my todo list. Some re-arranging of the dining area, and some papers got graded, but that’s about all.

The grocery store needs to “see me” so not many options for dinner. I’m making oven fried chicken. That lovely picture to the right is from Your Life Uncommon. Which is where I also got the recipe. PINTEREST FIND!

After dinner, it’s bath time for the boy and then attempting to put the baby to bed. Yeah. We’ll see how that goes. Then more paper grading and cleaning.

I also have some bracelets to complete. Which I can’t complain about because that means I’m getting some business. LOL

Hopefully, by 11PM it will be just me and Netflix.
