And Life Came to a Screeching Halt...

At least that's what it looks like based on the lack of recent posts on my blog. ;) Au fact, it's been busy. With what, you may ask?? Good question...a whole lot of nothing it feels like to me when I look around at days' end at the house I claim as my domain. However, if I think, I can come up with a few items that might be of interest. ;)

  • Rolling Around -- On Sunday, Genna rolled over from her back to her tummy. And when I placed her on her back again, she did it again. And she's already rolled a few times from tummy to back. With this new accomplishment, there has been much, much disruption to sleeping & eating habits, which equals disruption to my life. She's been fussy this last week!! And she's studying yours truly with increased attention again. Last night, she gazed at me so intently from her father's lap that I would have felt incredibly uncomfortable if she were anybody but my very own baby...and even so, it was a bit unnerving! Steve put his hand in her line of vision, and she kept fidgeting & started fussing while she attempted to find me again.

  • School -- Off to a late start this year due to this thing I call life, which I have discovered is only predictable in its unpredictability. We officially started full-force this last week (although we had been doing bits here & there before that), so now we're officially on week two. that short amount of time, I've already had to "revamp" the system once. Figuring out what works is a work in progress. And honestly, the most challenging part of homeschooling, and yet the best part about homeschooling, is character development (that would be both my kids & my own). There's nothing like being purposeful about teaching your own kids to highlight their weakness as well as your own. Ouch!!!

So there you have it. I really must be going so that I can run my day instead of having my day run me. :)
