Jared, Arielle and I sat down today and planned out the rest of our school year. A general plan. We did not start in August...as our school books were not here. We moved into our home in October. We took time off when our adult children were home. They got "some" done in March, but not full-tilt. Therefore, we have a plan. We see how we could be done by 21 July...and with a bit more effort by 17 July....and if we killed ourselves by 19 June. I think we've opted to shoot for 17 July. I was relieved that we're up to par on all but the TOG....and we can cut back on that and still be fine.
This photo is really quite amazing. I've tried to utilize wind power since moving here. My dryer keeps blowing over. Those rocking chair usually sit in the middle of the patio - one on each side....and the dryer isn't usually blowing off the patio...but the comforter is dry. Jared's a bit weary of his laundry blowing into the neighbor's yard. ::snort::
I did get a NEW to us washer and it's working GREAT....super loads...but I realized I should have talked to them about the dryer issues while they were here. I suspect I need to use it until it dies too, and then they'll bring me a new one.
Fridays are family days. These usually include pizza and either a movie or game. I decided we all needed to get out of the house. We headed to base. I had one errand first.
Someone had to do it! Arielle volunteered to count m/m's. We tried those bags of "Valentine's" candy for our Daddy Jar/ Daddy Chocolate countdown while Mike was gone. We were all SICK of that much chocolate by the 2nd week. It also did NOT fit in the jar.
The BX had coupons for M/M's today. They even had a few bags of peanut butter m/m's - which we'd not had before. We guessed at how many bags we would need. We had some jelly beans we threw in....
Mike is with our adult sons tonight. We are so blessed to have Mike's flight routed through TX. He'll be flying on to the East coast tomorrow.
