i still don't really drink coffee.
today i'm drinking ice water in a environmentally friendly cup.
please don't click away.
i haven't done a virtual coffee with amy in a while!
and she's my favorite.
so here i am, across the ocean, thinking of all my friends all over the world and feeling very....connected, ya know?
this is an amazing world where not only can i keep up with my california friends that i have recently left behind, physically, but also i can keep up with friends all over.
also, i feel like i should take a moment to be so happy about the laptop that my sweet reedo got for me for christmas (see it in the picture?) as well as the PERFECT cover i got for it on etsy.
my favorite colors and retro alarm clocks!
let me take a sip of ice water.
so i started homeschooling today.
just pretended to know what i am doing.
i opened up jake's text book where his public school teacher left off and started division with remainders.
i thought it was great.
my first born was completely ungrateful for any of my happy enthusiasm or creativity the whole day.
that was hard, ya know?
i'm sure you either do or you can imagine....rough. first. day.
the other two were fine.
which sometimes makes the third wheel, even worse.
i am sure you moms of three kids hear me.
it's an interesting combo during a CRAZY life change.
i think i have decided that i am going to have very low expectations for this first week, just to get everyone used to working together.
the logistics are way harder than the actual work.
the knowing when to figure it out yourself and when to ask mommy.
the whole me making every meal and also trying to set up what each kid is going to work on today.
the answers to what to do when certain kids are totally bugging each other.
there is no normal yet.
also, i think i have decided to get tons more snacks.
they make everything better.
and also, maybe i should start drinking coffee?
you know what are so good?
and also a nod to your favorite(now hawaiian) blogger lady?
chocolate dipped coconut luna bars.
i got mine at target.
you need to get some to shake yer cute little blond self up during yer annual
"why is it so cold for so long?" phase,
these will help you dream of you and me sitting on the beach in hammocks someday...
(by the way, i've never done that either)
|(lena and leslie, do you feel faint at the sight of my misspelling of deodorant on that list? are you wondering if i should be allowed to homeschool my children at all??)|
ok ok, off to target.
some things do stay the same.
