My eldest is not likely to get a summer job at this point, unless it falls out of the sky and into her lap. She submitted four applications, indicating that she preferred not to work weekends, and to my knowledge has only checked in on three of them – once. Thank Heaven she has full tuition and a job to pay room and board next year!
We had begun a children’s picture book last year, and last night I finally finished the story. DD1 is excited about getting started on the rough sketches for our mock up, and asked me to start writing the stories for two other ideas we have. I would, however, like to see her starting her sketching. Right now she’s curled up with a book on the couch. Hopefully I won’t have to prompt her to sketch. After all, she’s been home two and a half weeks and has been bored the majority of that time.
My fiction book is currently on hold. Too many other things needed my attention, and at this point I want to focus on catching up on other projects. The story can marinate in my head in the mean time.
My son had a cold last week, passed it to DD1, and after the open house was over, I ended up with it too. There’s just never a good time to be sick. Right now, DH is working on tearing out flooring and I’m in no shape to help. That bothers me, but I want to get better as soon as possible, and I do have basic house work which needs to be done each day. I didn’t cook last night, but rather told my crew it was leftovers or make your own. There are definite advantages to the kids being teens!
It just stinks that when you’re sick, keeping towels and surfaces clean is more important than ever, yet you don’t really have the energy to do the work. Sigh. Just had to whine a little.
Maybe this afternoon I’ll head to the sewing desk. That’s usually a good activity to move forward with projects without expending tons of energy. Then again, the recliner just may host a good nap.
