Well. This week didn’t begin as I had hoped. Instead of starting school on Monday, I came down with the flu (or something with flu-like symptoms). I am thankful that the chills are gone, but it still hurts to move.
I hope I start feeling better soon because the house is a disaster. Everything is piling up and, because of plans I made back in August, we’re two days behind on my lesson plans. Once I feel better it will probably take me a day to get everything back in order, then that makes us three days behind. It’s frustrating but I’ll get over it.
No, I should look at this as God’s best for our family right now. For whatever reason, I’m sick when I want to be well, I’m in the bed or on the couch when I want to be teaching and reading to the kids. I should be thankful. I’m thankful that this is happening while Karl is still home for vacation. I’m thankful that he enjoys doing laundry.
Can you believe it? I don’t even feel like reading. There’s nothing on television — the news is depressing and I can only endure so many chefs and elaborate wedding cakes.
But I can lie here and move my fingers. I’ve forgotten a lot of what I learned in high school, but typing isn’t one of them.
Stream of consciousness:
I won an ebay auction for some Sonlight curriculum we needed. It was an awesome deal.
Our church is hosting a biblical evangelism training seminar soon. I think it will be a great way to start the new year and challenge me to step out of my comfort zone this year.
New seasons of Lost and 24. Are you looking forward to any tv shows? Oh, I read that this is the last season for Monk. Any Monk lovers out there?
So far so good on my Bible reading plan this year. I know it’s only been six days. Ask me again mid-March.
I had planned to read Calvin’s Institutes with ref21 this year, too, but for some reason I still haven’t received my book in the mail. I’ll have some catching up to do when it gets here.
It’s been raining here for days. (I just looked out the window).
All of our Christmas decorations are put away. The room always feels so huge after we take the tree down.
We also sold our big, cabinet piano. We decided to get a keyboard. The kids are excited about it. I’m thrilled that they’ll be practicing with headphones from now on. Oh yeah, and there’s more space!
Hoping for a healthy tomorrow! G’night, y’all.
