After my previous post, I realized just how frantic life had been lately and made a conscious decision to force a little more LIVING into our days.
Wednesday, KayTar returned to school, I studied while she was gone, then took her out to lunch after school and then we went on a walk together. I also made it a point to spend an entire hour on the sofa with my novel. The weather has been amazing this week, so after school the kids spent some time on the trampoline.
Thursday was very low key, I had been nursing a headache all week and it nearly took me out of commission on Thursday. I managed to do laundry, clean the house, and go through my index cards several times, though. We went outside after school to play with the MoonSand that KayTar got for Christmas. I finally cured my headache with a glass of orange juice of all things! I gave up sodas over a week ago and I guess my body did not agree with the sudden lack of sugars. After fighting that headache for a week in spite of a variety of medications, it was gone with a single glass of orange juice!
Today (Friday), I spent the morning studying, but when KayTar got out of school we went to pick up lunch and ate with BubTar at school, now I'm blogging while KayTar plays Club Penguin, and after BubTar gets out of school we're going to Barnes and Noble for new books and BubTar might be having his best buddy sleepover, too. I'll study while they entertain each other. Saturday night, we are thinking of having friends over for a game night.
So yes, I had a double length Chem class on Wednesday night. Yes, I have a lecture exam in Bio II tomorrow and then a full day's worth of class. Yes, I have a study session for Chem on Sunday. Yes, Chem will be double length again on Monday, followed by an exam on Wednesday. But it doesn't matter how busy life gets...there is always time to fit in some of the fun stuff, too, sometimes it just takes more of a conscious effort to squeeze it in!
