First Week of School Year 2011

So many things are happening so quickly.  So our first week back to school was very messed up.  I should have waited to start this coming week. 

On Monday, things went pretty good considering that I had been so busy with things that I hadn't had time to get everything ready.  But I really wanted to get started, so I did.  Little did I know that I would get a phone call that afternoon from someone at the state office offering me a temporary job as an assistant.  They wanted to do the interview right away, so it was scheduled for the next afternoon. 

On top of all of that, my Father-in-Law was also having surgery to remove an aneurysm that was located in his neck.  It had caused a stroke already and was only only about 9% of a blood flow.  That surgery was scheduled for Thursday, but he had many appointments before then and my husband was helping him.  Our week was pretty much booked up with doctor appointments, surgeries and recoveries.

Tuesday dawned and I was busy most of the day and then went to my job interview.  I was given the job.  It's only for 3 months and I have no idea what I will be doing except handling paperwork and filing.  I am not really looking forward to this, but I have to do it.  She wanted me to start the next day, but I told her about the surgery and she agreed to wait and have me come in on Monday.

Needless to say, there was no school done on Tuesday.

Wednesday was pretty much my last day to be horrifically lazy all day for a long time, so I took advantage of it and we didn't do anything but prepare for the surgery the next day.  No school was done.

Thursday dawned and we were already on our way to the hospital.  We were out of our house at about 6am so it was still dark when we left.  We were at the hospital for probably 10 hours and there was no school done on this day.

On Friday we knew that we were heading into the hospital at some point but we didn't know when.  I wanted to get a lot of the housework done before I start work tomorrow.  I did get a lot accomplished and that was nice.  But we didn't do any schoolwork.

We will just finish last week's schoolwork this week and not worry about it.  That's the beauty of homeschooling!
