So Far So Good

So far so good with this being a mom thing.  Of course, school hasn't started so I haven't had to get up early or figure out how to pick him up from the bus stop or make sure his homework is done.  I haven't even had a full day of work since before Christmas.  Next week is going to be tough.

I have been making dinners but he has been on his own for breakfast and lunch.  I bought bacon for the first time in a long time.  Turns out he doesn't like bacon.  Oh well, more for me.

I took Friday off and managed to find my way to the courthouse to turn in the guardianship paperwork.  It will be around 6 weeks before I have to go to court.  I can't forget to do my online how-to-be-a-guardian training.  I wonder if there will be a test?  Just kidding.

The wipe off board is working well for chores that change daily.  Today's chores were:  Take holey socks out of drawer.  Take last semester's work out of binder.  Tell me if you need school supplies.  And lastly, have Skype tutoring with his aunt.  He has a research paper that is an all-year project and they are getting started with tutoring by reviewing what he has done so far.

One more day of leisure time and then we jump right in to a full week of work and school.  Let the games begin!

There will be ups and downs but basically once he has consistency and structure then you are on the way.
