I have a few pantry posts running through my brain, just attempting to land in some coherent paragraphs. I have books to read, photos to take, and laundry reproducing on its own. The pumpkin bars which were promised to friends at the bookstore were not made before fatigue set in this afternoon... so they will require tomorrow's attention.
I am feeling better but I get frustrated when my want-to-do-list is overwhelmed by the need for rest. However, the flu appears to be leaving without causing any severe symptoms, thank the Lord! If this fatigue is all I'm left with for awhile, that is fine... I can take a nap once in awhile. :)
Homeschool prom in the spring
We are now in the midst of a new routine with Christopher's living at home again while attending classes. I must admit it is fun having him a regular part of the family again... as opposed to running in and out when he was living nearer campus.
Sure there is more laundry and meals to cook but I don't mind that at all. More work comes along with more people... but I think the people are so worth it all.
Last night I received a phone call just as I was going to bed, he chatted while walking across campus and through one of the parking garages until he was in the car. Just like he used to all the time. I don't like dark parking garages, either.
Another time this week, I went to use my computer after Christopher had borrowed it. The website showing had been located by googling "how to trim a goatee". He had an important meeting and decided his beard was too scruffy and a goatee would be better.
I told him he looked like Mr. Tumnus. I asked if he was going to make me tea and show me a picture of his father who had gone to war. Instead he picked up his keys and went to his meeting. I would have enjoyed the tea.
Some children have learned to ignore their bookish mother.
