Yay! Spring is finally here!
I know cause I'm hacking, coughing, sneezing and snotting!
Thanks a lot POLLEN!
The weather is absolutely beautiful....80 and bright skies. Tomorrow is to be a bit cooler with some rain.
Tomorrow will be a tough day too - a funeral.....I lost a dear friend this weekend suddenly....he was fishing. Landed a 70lb wahoo, sat down and had a heart attack 2 hrs out at sea. There was a nurse and a doctor on the boat and of course his wife, but they could only do so much. So tragic. He was such a happy, fun man. Only 20 days away from turning 60! Had just gotten married....remember? The wedding last October! That guy.
So sad. His wife is holding up well, trying to be strong for everyone, the kids are in town, the grandbaby is here....she's about to get grand #2 next month. He loved kids too.
I'm trying to de-clutter the house bit by bit....lots of junk, unopened mail; bank statements; school papers; unread magazines. WHY!!!!!
And the laundry.......must be part rabbit, because it never ends.
Mr Man and I spent this weekend working on the deck extention out to the pool. A 6x13 area...but Tom cannot bend well and even Miss T was a big help. He's putting up the rails today and all that will be left is the ladder platform and then prepare the water!
Miss T is still dancing away.....and I'm having her see a math tutor. A good example of WHY was last nights homework. She had to "fix" compound fractions....ya know 15/4 = 3 3/4.
THEN she had to reverse these in a different section
3 3/4...well MY answer is of course 15/4 BUT she wrote 3 15/4. I said WRONG. She said it is how the teacher explained it. Then there were tears, then I wrote a note to the teach asking her to explain WHY my kid thought this was the right way and WHY she said it is the way it was explained. Then I made a copy of the work and my note for the math tutor (who is a teacher at the same school).
What else can I do??
We have Spring Break starting this Friday....no school for a week. I wanted to get away, maybe go to Charlotte to Carowinds. Is that a good idea? Travelling the first weekend off of school....??? Maybe not. Probably will not go. I need to concentrate on things around the house. I did buy 3 new rose bushes this weekend...should get them planted. I don't want to put off a trip like this until it is so hot I cannot stand it. But then again the POLLEN is in full force......
