Last week I took a vacation....well, a mental vacation maybe. A vacation from many of my normal daily duties...
I completely ignored the weeds growing in the garden
I ignored the dust on the shelves and the hair on the floors
I ignored the dishes- as much as one can when the dishwasher is broken
I ignored the laundry
I ignored just about everything except preparing meals, baths, and playing/reading with the kids when they asked me to.
What did I do?
Although Paul was home some on Sunday so I didn't read quite as much, so I had to finish the book during quiet time on Monday. I was seeing vampires in my sleep. It's been a long time since I have read like that- when I was in high school it was quite common for me to read 400+ page books in one day/night....
But now I am back....I have received 2 of my 3 orders for the upcoming school year. I have most of the curriculum I am going to use, I have 2 units planned, and about 7 more to plan...or at the very least roughly outline...school officially starts the first week in July.
