what to do now?

It's raining (naturally, being June in Washington) and I have completed my obligations for Spring Quarter.  We have some home-schooling curriculum to finish up, but there is room in my life for some projects.  The nominees are:

  • paint all the interior trim on the addition
  • work on my manuscript
  • clean out the basement
  • purge the kitchen & laundry room
  • make jam from last year's frozen jam berries
  • clean out the barn
  • prep a Pilot course for a private English class I am teaching next fall, pending sufficient enrollment
  • prep a fall Eng 101 class I am teaching, pending sufficient enrollment

I'd say start with the jam making before it (hopefully) gets hot out and to make room in the freezer for more berries.

I am the wife of a man I call My Gift from a Generous God. I am mama to two lovely children, Dandy and Chickadee that became ours in September 2006 in a court-room in Siberia. I am the daughter of two people whom I love and admire. One of them, my dad, is a new (Dec 06) paraplegic.

In my previous life (B.C. - before children), I was a college English teacher, specializing in composition and ESL composition.
