One day at a time...

Today was hard. Not just hard, but insanely HARD. I was tempted many times today to pack the kids in the car and go drive through anywhere for lunch to get a coke. I didn't care if I ate or not, I just wanted a huge coke! A coke IV might have even worked. Tuesday is our busiest day of the week with speech, dancing and sometimes girl scouts. I usually don't eat enough during the day on those days and compensate by drinking several cokes. I beat the temptation.

We had a decent day of school today. I ordered some new books. Michael has finished his math and english for the year, so I ordered 5th grade for him. I ordered a few new things for Annalee, also. I really don't like her english at all, so we're going to try some new things. I am hoping they will enjoy this more. I'm looking forward to getting the order in! I am enjoying being back in a routine with school.

I've walked 8 miles so far this week! It feels wonderful to be active again. The scale is inching down for me, too. I love seeing those numbers fall!

Congrats on conquering your temptation. Congrats on walking 8 miles this week - You go girl!!!

We love, love, love Shurley Grammar. You should try it. I've been homeschooling now for 7 years and Shurley Grammar and Horizons Math are 2 things I have stuck with.
