We get up and do all the usual stuff before school stuff: Breakfast, pack lunches, wrestle Elegant out of bed, check email, remind Elegant to eat, braid Graceful's hair, tell Elegant to get off the damn floor and get dressed, etc. We walk to school and drop the girls off around 8:25.
Pete and I get home. I shower and dress. He decides to work at home, so he takes up residence in the study on the first floor. I commute downstairs to my home office. We each play different kinds of music as we work. On short breaks, I throw in a load of laundry, soak beans for dinner, and check a few blogs. Okay, more than a few.Before lunch, I leave for a rendezvous with Richard, the Hair God. I come home happy and not wanting to work, but I persevere and do what needs to be done. I also read a few more blogs.
I get Graceful, Elegant, and one of Graceful's friends from the bus.
Home again. Check work emails. Work on dinner in earnest. Supervise homework. Negotiate computer time with the girls.
And we didn't even have to move Elegant back to her own room.
