NOT so random thought

I never underestimate my opponent. Sooner or later, he/she will make clear whether they wish to go toe-to-toe or they are bluffing. Until then, I patiently wait.
And, wait, I am.

Got pranks?

Funny, funny, funny.
I have to laugh (again)
So much time and effort people put into trying to see me unhappy.
For every one of them, there are five people who bring nothing but joy into my life.
It's kinda painful to see so much despair the person or persons are dealing with within themselves. If they had more positive "things" in their lives, maybe they would let me be.
My people's say, "Let's just beat that ???" I just don't care enough to do so.
Some things really are beneath me. I'm beginning to think some PEOPLE are as well.
Such is life.

Even the elephants understand

As I was watching Babar, more like listening, I overheard the episode where Queen Celeste kidnapped King Babar just to spend time together. In the end, they confided in their children, they were not going to a convention. They planned a trip to ensure they would have private time together.

That made me think. It's funny, how many relationships fail because one or both refuse to put in the work to hold it together. I'm not saying a bad relationship is worth staying in, just everything takes work.

We maintenance our homes, our cars, why not our relationships? Are they less important?

I guess I'm thinking out loud.
These things have crossed my mind many times. I know the work it takes. I've put in the late hours and early mornings to ensure things work. I think I'm worth it.

Things we do...

...sometimes bite back.

I am realizing that I attract the type of persons I've always protected.
And I have potentially become like the ones who were decieved.
Karma can be cruel.

First week blues

Even the cat benefits :)

Our first week of schooling has passed and I am so exhausted. I feel emotionally bankrupt. There have been too many things coming into play too quickly. I just need some space to breathe. Unfortunately, I don't have that luxury, as I am the primary academic coach here. I just need to pull it together and focus on what needs to be done. If I can put everything else out of my mind, I'll be fine.

Anyways, homeschooling is the best. I can't wait until I can set everyone up in the dining room at the table. That was our plan for this school year. Currently, we have a pest issue. The nieghbors moved out and left their cat in the basement riddled with fleas. Terminix will rescue us really soon. Till then, we are maintaining by working upstairs. Ugh @ people sometimes but that really is another blog for another day.

School is cool

Three days into the school year and I am tired but happy. I LIKE being a part of my children's learning. I enjoy doing lessons with them.

Today, our seventh grader had to do a powerpoint for homework. It was her first time so, of course, I wanted to learn the technology as well. Powerpoint is very simple. We enjoyed putting her presentation together. It would have taken less time if it hadn't kept crashing.

All in all, I am content with being back to school. I was very anxious on day one but teaching is like second nature to me, I thrive in this.

My body just needs to get back on schedule with this early morning lifestyle. LOL. I was nodding during some of our sessions. Luckily, cyberschooling creates independence in learners. Our 4th and 7th graders can do most of their work alone. Honestly, the 2nd grader probably could as well, but Mommy is not ready to let her grow up too soon. She's my baby!
