|Moved the dresser out. As you can see it made a HUGE difference...
|Moved out and collapsed all the empty boxes.
|As you can see THAT made a huge difference. See? FLOOR!!
|Finally organizedish. No, don't look over at the other side of the room!
It was a long grueling day. It was touch and go there for awhile but finally we made it through. At 10:45ish I breathed a sigh of relief. Day one down. We can do this!
|Winding down after school with some "colorin."
Now, I realize I made a grave error by calling my husband at 11:00 to tell him we were done for the day. Because when he gets home tonight he will ask me, "So, what did you do for the rest of the day?" I don't think, "beat three hands of Spider Solitaire" is the answer he will want to hear. Next time I will have to call him at 4:59 and tell him we just got finished and I am so worn out, but am going to try to start a load of dishes, while sorting laundry, and preparing dinner. That will be his cue to say, "Don't worry about it darling, you just go lay down and rest. I will bring home dinner and after we eat I will clean the kitchen before I do all the laundry and organize the homeschool room for you. Why don't you catch up on some Spider Solitaire?"
When all was said and done I asked my son if he wanted to "do school" again tomorrow. He got a very distressed look on his face and shook his head no emphatically. "You don't want to do school again?" Well, yes. But... I want to do it again today!"
I'll count that as success!
