You know how you start back to school and your teacher asks you to write about what you did over your summer vacation? Well that’s what this post is….
What I Did Over My Unintended Bloggy Vacation (because if you haven’t noticed, I kind of vacated for the last few days)
In a nutshell…
My two oldest kids got their first real job. My hairdresser needed a dog walker 2 days a week and since my kids are homeschooled and available during the day, she is paying them EACH $40 a month to walk her dogs-that-are-like-her-babies.
Hello! I think I missed my calling. That’s a bunch-o-money for a couple of kids!
My bloggy friend Gayle W. (how could we not be friends, we have the same name?) officially jumped from the blog-friend list to the real-friend list by calling me on the phone this week. I love her! She is so real and funny and unpretentious and I love her! (oops, said that already) Plus she’s got this really cool southern twang that must be contagious because my kids kept asking why I was talking funny after I got off the phone.
“Ya’ll put yer toys away now kids!”
I’ve been frantically preparing lessons for some classes I’m teaching at our local homeschool co-op every Friday. I can’t quite figure out JUST WHAT POSESSED ME to teach 3 classes this time. I’ll be helping Chris teach some teenagers about the stock market, investing, and money management, then I’ll be teaching twelve 6 and 7 year olds how to tell time and count money, and then moving on to 10 pre-teen girls who will learn the art of crochet.
I prefer to think of it as just another opportunity to soothe myself with chocolate.
So that’s what I did while I was away.
And I really missed reading your blogs and hearing from you all.
