The next 2 months are going to be busy. We *plan* to move to a new place in about a month, so February will be full of preparations - finding a rental, applying for a rental, and (hopefully) moving into a rental. The problem is that we have spent the last 10 years in family-owned accomodation, first renting from hubby's parents' for 9.5 years, and now living at my parents' place. February will be exactly 10 years. Wow. So now we have the whole filling-out-forms and wishing-and-hoping-and-praying thing to do. And once we've secured a place, then there's the moving in and settling down. Yeah. Great fun.
What this all means is that our weeks are going to be unsettled. Today, for instance, I was in the city, looking at houses, leaving the children with my mother who is supposed to be minding, not teaching, them. I do not expect her to teach them, she has enough to do. But it does mean that the week is shortened/disrupted. But we're homeschoolers, aren't we? Who says we have to do school between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday only? Especially when hubby is working this Saturday, and the kidlets have no outside engagements at this time? So this week will be as follows: Monday - off, public holiday (Australia Day); Tuesday - school; Wednesday - off (I was in the city); Thursday - school; Friday - school; Saturday - school. Next week will be similar, as I will be away on Monday and Wednesday with appointments with real estates, and house hunting to do. And getting the car fixed (yay!) And other stuff. So for the next however-long, we will be schooling whenever we can, trying to get things done without stressing the children. Or myself.
Wish me luck.
