Got to have a plan

By the goodness of God I got called off work today. Nothing like a 4:30 am call asking, "Would you like to stay home today?"

Sean cashed in points from his recent hotel stays and got me a room for today/tonight. I won't be far from home, but will be getting a lot more accomplished than if I were.

I know myself well enough to admit that if there is no plan, then it simply will not get done. There must be a plan. So, I'll be taking along three laundry baskets full of homeschool books and lot of iced tea. I'll have some uninterrupted time to plan our homeschool year as well as set some goals for myself and my students. Last year I did this in the front seat of the van on our drive to Canada and back. There is more isolation than one might think while sitting in the front of a 15-passenger van. I think I'll be a lot more comfortable this year.

Now, let's see how much I can get done between 3pm today and 12 pm tomorrow. Better go sharpen my pencils.

Have lots of fun, Monica!!! I agree, it's nice to have a plan. If you run out of iced tea, give me a call, I can run some over to you! :)

I can't wait to hear how wonderful it was! Not only the quiet, but being able to get so much done. What a great start to the new school year.

I'm in the middle of my plan, too, only I feel like I'm just running in circles...I'm such a newbie! : )

I hope you have a great day of quiet to set the course of your year!
