don’t tell my kids but i’m hiding. i took my tea and my breakfast and i’m entrenched in front of the computer. it’s not a very secret hiding spot so i’m sure i will be found out any moment. that’s why i’m whispering. they’re still eating breakfast and doing their chores. i think they’re trying to hide from me as well so i won’t make them start on their schoolwork.
the shades are open at the window next to me and everything outside is wet. i love the fall. i just want to curl up in a blanket and watch the leaves and the rain and sip tea or cocoa. it energizes me. well, not so much at the moment! but that’s what i would prefer to be doing right now.
this time of the year is so busy for me. i have 4 craft shows in november and i usually spend at least 2 months before that trying to get ready for the shows. for most of them, it’s set up on friday, work saturday and sunday and then take down on sunday evening. but i’m also homeschooling during all this. i have to try to keep the kids on the same schedule as much as possible or we’ll be dealing with serious behavior problems. one of these days i might go into detail about what happened last year around this time but i don’t have the energy right now. it was too stressful.
freeze! i hear footsteps outside my door……don’t make a sound……whew! we’re safe for now. that was too close. i need to sign off before my post is invaded. sometimes it’s rough here in the trenches. there’s never enough contact with the outside world. if you get this message, be assured that i’m hanging on. my mission is thus far a success. the children are behaving and learning and growing. they are——
i’ve been found out! i’m outnumbered! retreat! save yourself! i’ll do my best to survive……don’t forget about me…..tell—-……….
