Long Post about Not Much (But I'm Getting a lot Done!)

November 11th, 2015 at 12:27 am

I did a lot of decluttering and getting things in order today including:
- the usual housework
- the usual work-work
- cleaned out the trunk of my car
- entered orders for school pics (we are going to place the order tomorrow evening - net should be about $1800)
- rearranged my pajama drawers so that winter stuff is in the top drawer
- cleaned up F's art supplies in the pantry
- got the old holiday cards out to see what we can recycle. I think we'll use an old card and insert a photo or maybe paste a new photo on top of an old card style that we never used up. I am NOT paying for cards this year!

Other stuff:
I've been trying to sell a bag on craigslist, and the woman wants it but she lives in the next town north which is about 30 minutes away. We're having trouble coordinating. She's having some hard life stuff right now, so I'm not trying to sell it out from under her. We'll work it out, I'm sure.

I have other things to sell on craigslist, but I haven't posted them yet. On tomorrow's to-do list!

Also on tomorrow's list: finish the school recipe book! We need to print a trial copy and get the word out so people can order them as holiday gifts! I know what my mom and dad are getting!

F had a hard day at school today. They got to choose science partners today, but the groups are three kids and she is in a group of four best friends. One friend decided to do it by rock-paper-scissors, and F's friend A was left out. She wasn't in a bad group, but not with any of her best friends. F and I talked because she walked out of school looking super dejected because she was so sad for A and feeling guilty. She said "I think I'm going to talk to S and see if she wants to switch groups with me so I can be with A. Then it's two and two. If S says ok, I can ask the science teacher." I told her I thought that was a great idea and a very caring way to handle the situation. I was thinking of LivingAlmostLarge and her Kindergarten woes! The learning process just continues... F is in 5th grade.

F is quitting piano, and the teacher made a really wonderful gesture (speaking of learning experiences and ways to deal with situations). She said F could just learn a song at a time just to still be involved with music, and that if she gets stuck on how to work out the notes, we can have one-off lessons with her here and there. Brilliant! And a great offer! F is playing "Blank Space" on the piano right now, so I guess that's good!

It's dark now, so I guess time to make dinner. Pasta with red sauce and asparagus.

    So great F's piano teacher is working with her to enjoy music. Smart lady to know that it's about having music in her life!! I hope it works out.

    That is really sweet and good problem solving on F's part with the science groups thing! I hope it works out.
