Catching Up

Thursday, December 06, 2012

The day is busy. I have to try and clean up the house somewhat, because my DD2 is going to a after school dance and then 2 of her friends will be staying here. They're really nice girls. I like her friends. DD2 is so vibrant and busy and friendly and pretty much a happy-go-lucky person. An asset to the family.

So, the bathrooms need cleaning, laundry pile needs to be reduced in size, floors swept, counter cleaned off. Meanwhile, I'm getting my hair done today and have to make supper for 8 people tonight.

This is going to interesting. I'll see how much I can get done and whatever gets left over, oh well. I can't get too upset with myself for having a messy house. I know I have kids that can help with the cleaning, but they also have homework to do and that always takes priority here. Besides, I love helping with the math.

Needless to say, I'm busy for the next couple of days.

My DD1 is in a play too. So that's another thing that is going on. I'm very excited for her. She is in grade 10 and was cast the third lead role. She already knew her lines (65) by the end of the week and her drama teacher was shocked and extremely surprised. He said he has to give her a bigger part next year. She has great memorization skills.

As for DD3, she is doing really well with home schooling. She is excelling in math (she has a great tutor) and then L.A. is good. Science seems to be the achilles heel for her though. Not her fault, mostly mine. I do hate experiments.

My one and only son is getting along much better. He is passing all of his classes and he seems far more sure of himself. I'm glad that things are better for him.

Hubby is working hard, as always and I'm here. The Mom.

Recovering slowly, but getting more pep in my step. Someday, I'll be able to get up the flight of stairs without being breathless.

Have a great weekend everyone. It'll be awhile before I have the chance to blog again.

    Sounds like a happy, busy family!! I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better. Remember to take care of you!! ( I wish I had you as a math tutor. I couldn't help my son after 6th grade algebra) emoticon

    Wow, everything is looking up for you and your family. You deserved this! I hope things continue on the right path.
    Maybe an outside tutor for DD3 Science. It there a field trip you can take her on to help bring science to life and better understanding? Like an interactive Science museum?

    good luck
