I admit that my feelings were very mixed about our Christmas vacation coming to an end. It was so nice to be able to get to some of those extra projects I've been wanting to do for so long. But with all the celebrations/activities of the holidays, I didn't get to nearly as many as I thought I would.
Speaking of which, my painting project is not yet completed. So far I've changed colors three times, and decided to go with 2 new colors instead of one. And if you're shaking your head over that confusing explanation, you've just joined the club.. hubby's shaking his head as well,lol. Honestly, the man has the patience of a saint. Or maybe he's just used to me by now.
Anyway, this morning we did go back to school. We're running ahead of schedule for the day (Yay!) and I have to say that it feels really good to be back to our routine. It's running so smoothly, it almost seems easy;) I'm going to start the Princess on a new Program today that I'm hoping will be a big help to unlocking words for her. We've tried so many things, it can't hurt to add another one. She wants so badly to be able to read, she's insisting on checking out books from the library that have no pictures. She'll sit in a chair for half an hour looking at a blank page pretending she's reading it. She is catching on to a few simple words like cat and at. So we're going to continue working on the sight reading. She really is making some progress, just not as much as she would like. I'm glad she's a little girl with a lot of determination.
My tooth has loosened (yes, we're back to the tooth saga) so I'll be going in to have it taken care of this week. If I had the guts, I might try pulling it out (it's that loose), but I'm afraid I might get a dry socket, so I think I'll leave it to the professionals. Plus, I suspicion it might be at the root (no pun intended;) of some of the extra headaches I've been having lately, so I need to make sure any infection is taken care of. It's amazing how much trouble one little tooth can cause.
If you were expecting my blog to be transformed by now, I'm still working on it:)
Our personal phone lines were somehow damaged by the high winds last week, so when anyone tries to call our house it gives a busy signal. People are thinking I'm a real chatty Cathy by now no doubt. Hopefully it will get fixed in the next few days.
Later today I'm going to summon all my courage and step on my bathroom scale; I plan to post about that and my (once again) journey into the world of exercise and weight loss tomorrow. This time I'm adding a new twist, and I'm really excited about it.
I think that's all for now. Not the most exciting post, but then getting back into routine isn't always exciting, just satisfying.
Have a great Monday!
