A Few Random Thoughts
April 12, 2010 § 6 Comments
Taking an idea from Such Lovely Freckles, I’ve decided to write a short list of random thoughts that have passed through my head today instead of extrapolating on any particular one.
1. I AM a morning person! At 38 years old, this is a surprise to me. I spent most of my life dreading mornings but I just realized now that that’s because I spent most of my life as a Mom. Mornings for me were always an endless rush of doing things for other people. Now that my mornings aren’t so rushed and I can do what I want instead of what I have to, I’m starting to notice how much more I’m enjoying them.
2. I’m still fawning over our newly painted garage door. Everytime I look at it, I’m taken aback by how much better it looks and by how easy it was. I can’t wait for two nice days in a row and Hubby being home to coincide so we can finish the trim, do the framing around the bay window and paint the shutters. And yes, Hubby HAS to be home because I don’t do ladders.
3. Daughter turns 15 this year and we’ve been homeschooling/unschooling for over 3 years now. I’m finding the closer it gets to her birthday the more at odds with myself I become about our approach. It’s not doubt so much as it is wondering if we should be doing more. Then I find myself wondering if this is really about our educational choices or if it’s about parenting in general. Do other unschoolers get more concerned the older their children get?
4. I remember how disappointed I was when the seeds we planted last year didn’t grow. Of course the disappointment was mostly in myself because I didn’t care for the garden properly. We spent almost the entire month of June camping and hardly watered it. Nonetheless, some of the seeds survived and have started sprouting. Neat!
That’s it I guess…there could be more but right now I want to play some Sims. My character is on the verge of a love affair while at the same time only one charisma and two good friends away from a promotion. 😀
