Happy Friday! I am always so glad it’s Friday. I love homeschooling my kids, but I never fail to enjoy looking forward to a couple of days with a little less on the agenda.
For those keeping tabs – which is probably no one – I did not make my goal of being up by 8 a.m. each day this week. I was proud of myself for making it on Tuesday, even though I was up until after midnight because Brianna had to work until close. Then, I started feeling the first stirrings of a weakened immune system.
I had a sore throat and just felt kind of run-down, so I slept in a bit on Wednesday. It seemed to do me some good, but my throat was very sore – to the point of keeping me awake – Wednesday night and apparently I forgot to set my alarm. I’m ashamed to even tell you what time I woke up on Thursday.
Except that probably makes it sound worse than it was. I woke up at 10 a.m.
After posting on Facebook asking for sore throat remedy suggestions, I wound up drinking what sounded like a really nasty concoction, but it turned out to not taste too awful and it really seemed to help. Should you ever need to know it’s two tablespoons each of honey, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar with a dash of cinnamon in about a cup of hot water.
It sounds terrible and it was a little funky, but the taste kind of grew on me and it really did help.
The most exciting news at our house this week was that Brianna got her driver’s license! She is officially a licensed driver. I’m so proud of her.
The least exciting news at our house this week was finding out how much it’s going to cost to insure her. Yowza! And, she’s an 18 year old girl. I told Josh he needs to quit worrying about saving for a car and start saving to pay his insurance instead. I knew it would be expensive, but I didn’t expect it to double our insurance, especially since the vehicle she’ll be driving was already insured.
Poor kid is getting a rude welcome to the real world, realizing that paying her bills (her phone, gas, and insurance) won’t leave her with very much money to enjoy. Yep, that’s reality for most of us.
I think that’s about the extent of our excitement for the week.
