Sunday, end of the Weekend

The weekend is almost over. A few hours and then Monday will be here and back to work we go. Thankfully, we started school in the summer (July) so that we could build in days for emergencies. At the time we were building in for when my mom would inevitably get sick again and then die. Yeah, I kinda felt like she was going to go in 2015. She would follow all the food restrictions and liquid restrictions when she was at the hospital. Best behavior was on view. But when she got home, she would go back to her bad habits. Now, that we are starting to feel better, I am pushing for everyone to get moving and get outside. We will start eating things that are made from scratch (the soups and the foods that have to be cooked and then prepared and all the hard work), but so worth it as they taste so very good. I think that would be good for all of us. We were eating soups from cans as I was just not able to get enough energy to cook and clean and wash dishes.

Today, I am cleaning house. We are having some really good fruit and tonight's supper will be homemade. I think everyone would enjoy the rice and chicken and veggies. This is a meal that I make when I have time. I know that it is my husband's favorite meal. We are also working on our knitting and crochet projects. Just a little at a time, and reading. Tomorrow, we will get a bunch of math finished and get some more geography completed. History and Art and Writing! Yeah, we will get work finished. We will take a walk and get some fresh air and clean up the back yard. It will be nice to move and keep moving. I think the girls will enjoy a field trip to the Krohn Conservatory to see the spring flowers. I know that I will. Besides we can work on so many other lessons at the same time, because I live so VERY far away from Cincinnati (according to my family). I was looking back on a FB post I made about 5 years ago, my youngest wanted to know if the family knew where we lived and could they come to visit. I explained at the time that they know where we live and they are welcome to visit, but they feel that we live TOO far away to visit. Then they started seeing where they would come up to the area for things and we were still just too far away. They don't ask those questions any longer. They just ask if I have anything fun planned. Yep, I do have a lot of things fun planned for this week.
