Holy Smack!! Where have I been Jack??

Can you believe it has been almost a month since I posted? OMG! That's just craaaaaazy and totally unacceptable. I can't believe y'all let me get away with that. Someone should have grounded my cyber behind. Seriously.

Unless y'all just aren't following anymore and I'm in an empty blog typing to myself. [Hello? Echo, echo, echo???] LOL! Naw, ya'll wouldn't leave me... would you? [I know I haven't made the reading rounds lately myself - ever since I had to delete my blog role its harder - no not harder - less comfortable to read through my blogger dashboard. But I'll get better, I promise.]

(You'll never guess what I'm watching while I'm blogging. OK, maybe you will if you know me well. He he!)

So, school started back shortly the day after my 40th birthday after my birthday in July and since then we have been in full swing. Which is a big part of why I haven't visited y'all up here in blog world. Facebook gets in the way too.

Tell me if I'm tooting my horn too loud or playing the sad little thumb violin too much but here is

MY 2012-2013 after school SCHEDULE:

Monday: Dance; 4-H once a month; homework with kids
Tuesday: Guitar and two hours of tutoring in 'the city' for Farmer, Jr.; homework with kids
Wednesday: early release so homework and study/catch up day with the kids
Thursday: 1 hour of tutoring and/or Girl Scouts; full day library duty; homework with kids
Sunday: Church and CCD; prepare for the new school week and schedule

In the meantime when I happen to be home during the day I tend to bills, laundry, the house and chores, phone calls, schedule doctor appointments, plan out CCD lessons, manage four peoples' schedules (I LOVE iCal) and when I'm not home during the day I'm probably up at the school. Oh, and I'm still trying to squeeze in subbing but with all the right-after-school activities I can't most days because I can't stay the extra 30 minutes. I have picked up a few library assignments though and as y'all know I LUUUUV subbing in the library! A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

Lil'Gal is in 4th grade this year but she's still velcro. Wanting me up at the school with her 24/7. I don't know how to break her of this; she's just so used to me always being THERE.

OK, so that doesn't look as busy as it is, but it is.

Farmer, Jr. has been 'diagnosed' with ADHD and we are working on having him diagnosed with dysgraphia. We have to go all the way to Dallas to do that once they finish the paper work procedures. I mentioned this in another post. His teachers are great though, particularly his ELA teacher which is obviously the subject he has issues with, i.e.: the written word. And he has three hours a week of tutoring AFTER school and after extra curricular activities when he's already spent and burned out - but, it IS helping although I'm going to have to make changes again when I meet with his case manager next week. It's just burnout for all of us.

We leave the house at 6:40 and don't get home (with exception of Wednesdays) until sometimes after  7:pm. We aren't used I'm OCD and stuck in my patterns and running behind on our regular schedule stresses me out because I'm a freak to being off schedule and the kids need some down time/play time. AND, I'm a firm believer in putting a homemade hot meal on the table at least five nights out of seven and having the kids in bed by eight.

So, that is pretty much what has been going on in Farmer's Wife's world. I'm still always a Glass Half Full Gal but quite often it is half full or more of wine, LOL! But, then again, hasn't it always been?

Happy Saturday! I have some really cool news coming up sooner than later so as they say, Stay Tuned!!
