Wow. My daily blogging streak lasted all of 13 days.
I went on two camping trips in August and forgot all about the blog.
Then, last week, I received a sweet email from a friend:
Just a quick note to say that I miss your blogging. I was so glad to see you writing again :-)
Hope you are well.
I kid you not, my first thought was, Oh, yeah, I blog. I forgot to blog every day!
I guess with school getting into full-swing, I’ve been really busy and disengaged from anything that isn’t demanding my attention RIGHT NOW. I’m going to rectify that beginning today, not because I feel like I have to blog, but because I want to blog.
The second daily activity I tried to begin again was taking at least one picture each day. I totally failed at that, which means I don’t have very much to show for the three weeks that I didn’t write.
I have a few minutes to spare now that the kids and I have finished up a few school subjects for the morning. At the moment, they are rebelling against differentiating and diagramming predicate nominatives and predicate adjectives, so I sent them to the backyard for the next 15 minutes. Maybe running around will help their brains wake up.
Without further ado, here’s a short status update for September.
Sitting…at the school table.
Reading…a grammar textbook.
Thinking…of another way to explain subjective complements.
Thinking…what’s for lunch?
Anticipating…getting together with other homeschool moms tonight for some conversation, fun games, and coffee.
Also anticipating…FALL!!!! We had a wonderful summer full of activity, fun, and record-setting heat and sweat, but I’m ready for cool days, changing leaves, and my fleece jacket. (Yes, the levels of sweat sweated from my body broke records).
Participating…in a women’s self-defense class this month. We had our first meeting this week. My main take-away: “Head on a swivel.”
Watching…the seconds tick by on my 15 minutes to blog.
Wishing…I had more to share, but I’m at a loss for anything interesting, engaging, or amusing. Plus, I’ve exceeded my 15 minutes.
Lord willing, I’ll blog tomorrow!
