Hello Monday

Hello, no internet. Still. Yes, I'm using the internet, but it's ridiculously limited, because we've used all our data allowance, and still don't know when we'll get internet back again.

Hello, school holidays. I mentioned last week that I'm not worried about school holidays, because I have a plan. Now Steve's work roster has changed, and I'm a little bit worried, because he'll be gone all week.

Hello, teen tantrums. I'm almost at my wit's end. We'll figure it out, and he'll get it one day, but meanwhile it feels like there's no end in sight.

Hello, scout camp. Douglas is the patrol leader, so he's responsible for getting his patrol to and from camp, and making sure they've got everything. Which is kind-of funny, because according to his report card, he isn't very responsible. I wish he would apply his good scouting behaviour to his school behaviour.

Hello, book club book. We're reading "Girl on the Train" this month. Sometimes, it's great when they choose popular books, sometimes it isn't. Jury's still out on this one.

Hello, random ideas. I think I mention random ideas every other week. Sometimes I write them down in my bullet journal, sometimes I forget as soon as I've moved away from the computer. But I think I need to find a better way to capture them, because they're worth something to me, whether it's memory kepping, blog post ideas, or things to try.

Hello, Monday, a new start every week.

  5. I hope you get your internet connection back soon. We couldn't exist around here without it! It certainly is interesting how children can be completely different at school to at home or elsewhere! Random ideas are great. xo

  10. I need to be better at recording my random ideas. A bullet journal sounds like a good idea. Good luck with the teen. I am looking forward to our holidays next week, I don't have to get out of bed at 7am.

  11. I just bought a digital voice recorder for those random thoughts when I'm away from the computer. Check your local electronics store. Mine cost ~$30 (USD) from Amazon.

  12. I have 'Sticky Notes' on my computer, I have them up most of the time and I jot things down there. Well, I used to when my computer was on during the day. Now I just think of things and forget them instantly. Ugh, still no internet?! AND school holiday?! Might be time to invest in some paint ball guns or a giant inflatable water slide... that might entertain the kids for, oh, 10 minutes ;) Good luck with the teen. I'm absolutely sure it's just a phase, and it will pass eventually.

  15. Hope you're having a great week Cate! Yikes - no Internet, I'm spoiled here & can't imagine even having limited Internet at this point . . . although that might be blessing on occasion! :)
