To Do Sunday


Saturday is now the only day I teach at the learning center, which is about 45 minutes away. Yesterday, I had just four hours of class time, but half that time was spent with a new, large middle school class of mostly boys. You know it's going to be High Maintenance. By the time I got home, I was looking to zone out for a few minutes.



Daisy had other ideas and lots of them. I sat with her and offered to make a list for Sunday, since it was obvious I wasn't going to make her wishes come true on the spot. While Violet tried to distract us with naughtiness, Daisy dictated a list of tasks to me, then asked to see my notes so she could make her own copy. She remained focused despite her sister's best efforts.

Things to Do for Sunday

*Teach Violet manners.

*Clean.

*Play wii.

*Teach Violet how to talk normal.

*Teach Violet don't play with your food.

*Eat lunch.

*Go for a bike ride.

*Take Sadie for a walk.

*Laundry.

*Online coloring.



Mostly reasonable for Sunday, the one day I don't have to be somewhere. Daisy did help me clean for a couple hours. We took a bike ride, with the kids yelling and wrestling in the trailer that jerked left and right behind their dad's bike. We played wii for the first time. . . well, I didn't because the kids wanted to play karaoke and I hate that. But they were overjoyed to use a microphone.  Daisy and I tried to approach Violet with some guidance, but she apparently wasn't looking for advice.



It actually turned out to be a pretty good Sunday. I got stuff done . . . replaced my hard drive, did a grocery run, packed away valuables. The house-shaking construction is back on tomorrow. Also, there were three earthquakes last week. Who knows what might happen next. You're probably hoping something happens. Make the next post a little more gripping.
