It’s been almost a month

It has been almost a month since my last post. We’ve been doing lots and lots of things. Too much to stop and write about.

In the meantime, we’re in the time when the children are back to school but the college students are not yet. I’ve got a few weeks yet until I see their shining faces. That means it is time to catch up on all the other “stuff” I’ve got on my to-do list.

Here’s a few from the last 24 hrs:
cuddling my youngest.
spilling almost a box of cereal.
vacuuming up said cereal.
mopping the floors.
ironing on girl scout patches.
ordering textbooks.
nudging an independent study student along.
hauling wood for the fire.
organizing the attic. (!)
reading the newspaper.
turning the compost.
packing up Christmas items.
mailing letters.
paying bills.
making coffee.
doing pushups.
cooking black beans.
more vacuuming.
bathroom cleaning.
food prep.
preschool drop off.

That’s what’s going on around these parts. It’s mostly mindless work, the best kind for resetting your brain.
