Saturday we had 6 ballgames scheduled and they all got canceled because of snow. The snow stayed in the air rather than on the ground but it was bitterly cold and there is nothing like bitter cold to make me bitter. I had just started wearing sandals and it is against the grain to wear real shoes once the sandals are out.
With more free time than I expected on Saturday, I headed to the library book sale. At the sale I ran into two friends, both older homeschool moms whom I know for a fact do not need any more books. We all 3 readily admitted this as we talked. We were able to talk without eye contact as we were searching the tables. This book buying is a disease but it appears to be dying out with those of us in our 50s.
(I also found Belloc's Richelieu to complement his Marie Antoinette which I own.)
This week I need to regain control of our school days. I need to make sure we have Morning Time which we only did once last week. This is always the danger point. Things start falling apart and the temptation is to just give in to defeat. The key to the habit of MT is to not let past failure keep you from picking up where you left off.
