I'm listening to: Norah's lesson over my shoulder. With her teacher's guidance, she's using a ruler to measure objects by the inch.
I'm wearing: My sweaty exercise clothes. I subbed for another instructor's Senior Aerobics and Stretch classes this morning while Norah played with lots of other kids in the babysitting room at the gym.
I'm looking at: A sink full of dishes, a kitchen table covered with projects...
I can't get enough: Grapefruit sprinkled with Splenda
I can't bring myself to: Drink water. It makes me nauseous.
I need to: Get up and off the computer, shower, straighten up my kitchen, plan dinner, start a load of laundry, guide Norah through her phonics pages for today, take a trip to the library for several children's nonfiction and picture books to compliment Norah's unit on the Arctic and Eskimos, cut out more math manipulatives from craft foam...
Here's hoping: I can have time and creativity enough to design stage one warm up exercises to go along with Norah's art lessons from Drawing with Children
In my dreams: I'll get a nap. I didn't sleep at all last night.
What's looming: Our Christmas greetings need to go out. Norah's old bedroom needs to be cleaned out. I have to sort through piles of old clothes and toys, organize, save, store and/or get rid of things to make room for Avril.
I am thankful for: The extra money I made at work today. Our health. No errands to take us away from home tomorrow. We can stay inside out of the cold and get a lot done.
