We’ve been meal planning over here and we picked up veggies yesterday. Been working on washing them before we put them away. Gonna make some poblano rice, fish tacos, veggie fritters, beef bulgogi, and roasted veggies... 😬 frozen veggies are hard to come by.

Homeschool isn't just about the math and planets and just finding ways to keep these kids out of the way so I can get these damn spreadsheets to my accountants. It's about everything else too. Hug these babies- these loud, obnoxious horrible roommates. They need our hugs.

He cut up paper and pipe cleaners and used a hole punch and modeled it for me and wore it while doing his work at the computer. It was both the saddest and sweetest offer. My son showing me his anxiety and the ways that he was making our family safe- with copy paper masks.

This is a weird ending to a homeschool thread- but the stages of grief we are experiencing require us to think about loss. My son quietly made a face mask out of his art supplies in the basement on Sunday. And offered to make me one for when I needed to go to the grocery store.

I came across an article about a doctor who I have read about before... a neurosurgeon. He was pretty old and passed away from complications of covid. And I just sat at my computer and cried- because he was one of the best in his field. His death is a loss to all of humanity.

It doesn't feel like a complete loss- that isn't how I work- but it does feel like a low day. I wish I could just sit on ass and watch tv all day... that's not really an option for me... ever. There's a lot of labor that goes into acknowledging "this is our new now."

They did a lot of math today, the 7yo had his second speech therapy video call, I worked on sentence fixes with the 9yo and we still want to water color Mars. We went on a walk with the family too. And I am chatting back and forth with the 9yo's teacher about his levels.

But it also means that these goblins are taking "it's cold but not wet" weather today as a catchup. Which is good- get out of this house goblins!

Homeschool: Week 3, Day 12- It was kind of a drizzling mess outside yesterday and emotionally/mentally my brain is relentlessly coming up with 6 months of plans. It means that I am exceptionally distractible and getting anything done is just... hard. It's okay.

I’ve been laughing in my kitchen for like... at least 10 minutes sitting through this fake dinner.

Every once in awhile I think about what it would be like to have Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood over on “fridge croissant wrapped beef hotdogs with potato tots” dinner night... Just like sitting at my table with a fork and knife attempting politeness. And my kids. Just. There.

Do yourselves a favor- if you've been like, now is the time to eat as healthy and you're like- shit. I just can't do this another night. Here's your permission to eat ice cream. If youre out- crackers and cheese. If youre out- those 2 5 pound boxes of rainbow goldfish crackers

Anyways- I asked Adam for parent permission to forego a healthy dinner because I just couldn't make one again... So they are getting hot dogs baked in ready-bake croissants with potato tots and some chopped up baby carrots. All the food groups represented: salt, starch, carrot

While we did our all hands meeting we had the boys watch a documentary about Mars (52 minutes!) Then they did some more reading until they were granted coveted "watch pokemon episodes" time.

Ok we skipped the diagramming art project and Adam took the boys outside and used basketballs and tennis balls to illustrate to scale the size of Earth, the Moon and Mars and how far apart they are if they were that small (our grocery store is about 2 miles away- makes a good sun
