Absolutely nothing. You heard me, we did nothing. It's 9:32 pm and the boys are still in their pajamas. Their pajamas from YESTERDAY. Now while I assure you this is not normal protocol for us, it must have been needed because it was like we were all on the same brain wave this morning.
The rule in our house is "no electronics until after school" this means TV, NDS, XBoX,, what have ya. This morning we just kinda looked at on another and while no words were spoken, it was understood. No one had the mental fortitude today for anything except breathing and eating a bologna sandwich. So they walked over to the TV, turned it on and I did not object.
When I settled into this idea I thought, "good, I'll just catch up on the sewing today" but I was so irritated and agitated due to an ever so slight family drama that had transpired that I couldn't concentrate. It turned out to be nothing. Drama is usually that way. It's not even noteworthy.
Speaking of Noteworthy! T1 and I watched this tutorial today and learned how to convert midi files into sheet music! Who says we didn't learn??!?!
I can't say that I'm completely recovered and ready to go all "gung ho" with school tomorrow though. I really need to get over it and re-motivate. We can't afford to be lazy! It's so easy to get into bad habits. I feel like we have to stay on the ball all the time. People are watching us and hoping we fail. I don't think it's mean spirited. I just think that what we (the collective we, as homeschoolers) do is "odd" and people want to be able to say "see, it didn't work".
Wow. If that isn't enough motivation to get on the ball, what is?
But then again, I'm that kind of person. When someone says "you can't", I tend to find a way to prove the "I CAN!". I kinda take it personally.
Ask Mary what I did when the skydiving place in Gatlinsburg Tennessee said I was too fat to skydive. I bungee jumped! So did she. See? We're cool!
Ask my kids what I did when they said that it was too hard to do a front flip off the diving board.
With a torn rotator cuff, I did the front flip. OH LORD did I pay,, but I did it! Now so can the kids!
Perhaps my dr. is taking the wrong approach with me. He should say "Crystal, you'll never ever loose weight, give up".
'Em 'ere is fightin' words!
