This house IS

So yeah, I did manage to do some cleaning today. Cleaned my kitchen, got all the crap off the counters, rearranged my pots and pans cabinet, cleaned the glass tables in the living room, ran the vac and swept like three times. Oh and washed two loads of clothes and folded two. One is still in the dryer lol. Over 12 hours later and you can only tell about half of it now, but at least it was clean looking for a few hours lol. It made me feel better for a while.

Tomorrow Perth and I are going shopping hopefully. I am going to get my nails done ( I have not had a treat in a loooong time and after being hurt for so long I sure would like one! ) and we are going to order Alex's cake and see about some gifts and some food and what not. Just a nice outing hopefully.

Not much else is going on. I have been emailing back and forth with Alex's teacher. She is having some trouble in her reading comprehension so we are going to have to work with her on that. Jack, Perth and I had a discussion tonight about how advanced the curriculum is now at such young ages compared to when we were all in school. I did not have algebra until 8th grade and now they have pre-algebra in second grade! So I am going to go in Tuesday for a conference to see how we can help her improve. She loves to read, she is just having some trouble retaining some words, like tonight she kept confusing 'they' and 'there', ( she kept reading they as there, as in "let us go over there ) so I made her write "they" twenty times. Seemed to stick. I just have to buckle down with her and get us both on track. Apparently me being hurt did more damage than to just my ankle. She suffered too. That bugs me.

She is taking a field trip on Halloween to watch the Monarch Butterflies migrate. I think she will really enjoy that and I hope she has a ton of fun. That will be a busy day. I hopefully get rid of my walking boot for good that day, as it is my next doctors appointment.

I guess that sums it up for today. Not much else going on and I am about to hit the sack.

OH, I almost forgot, I am doing a guest post tomorrow morning over at Unleashed Diva Living Out Loud so be sure and check me out and read my friend Rae's other posts while you are there, maybe say hello!

Have a great night folks!

Pre-algebra in the 2nd grade? Wild! I think second grade for me was times tables.

I'm sure your little one will wind up doing just fine with a little extra help. When I was in 2nd grade someone told my mother I was a "slow" reader. She took a lot of time with me and, after making me write many words many times, the "slow" reading thing evaporated and I ended up a collegiate English/Creative Writing major. Go figure. :)
