Monday is our back-to-school day. Since Man-boy is under our church school's oversight program this so he can play on the soccer team, I have to meet all their requirements. Remember when I said I would never do this?
Yeah. Soccer wins.
The school starts on Monday the 30th, so I decided we would start a week earlier and give ourselves some wiggle room.
Then we decided to gut his room and paint it this week. Then I found out I had to give him the CAT test I bought last year and never administered. And then I found out he has to do a semester of Virginia state history. And THEN I found out the program I thought was two years of Spanish is only one.
Ask me now if I love him playing soccer.
I know we'll get through it all, but oh, GAG.
In other news, I had a coupon for a free pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, which is the only ice cream Abbie can eat (no bovine growth hormone), only I forgot to use it while she was still at home. She's back at school now, so I decided to find a new flavor to try. There's just something about an ice cream called Phish Food that keeps me from putting it near my mouth.
So I picked Strawberry Cheesecake. And you know what? It really tastes like cheesecake! Amazing stuff. It's a shame I have to walk two miles and do 30 minutes of Pilates for every teaspoon I eat. But it's my new favorite, at least until I try a new flavor.
Hey, I know! Let's take a poll, and then I'll try whichever ones you recommend. Which one is your favorite?
In other news, I have been saving like mad and am within $200 of my camera. I'm starting to get excited! Abbie's getting excited too because she wants to use it. She's a great photographer, and I'm sure her shots will put mine to shame, but I'm looking forward to learning from her.
Be thankful ~
