Today, I did the basics, barely. I fed and watered and rotated animals for the best grazing fit and did a LOT of research. I figure this is my last sit down day for a good long time. Tomorrow, some of my students are coming into do school service projects, so that is that day gone. Friday- Sunday will be finishing the greenhouse and working on the garden, because the plan is to expand the garden to 10 times its current size, and cleaning animal pens, and getting ready for Monday, when school starts again. I even have some grading I didn't finish! Yikes.
Confirmation classes start up on Sunday, which necessitates me driving down on Sunday and waiting after Mass. It is a long story - but it usually means we all go to different Masses. I am pretty sure that Confirmation is supposed to bring families together and not mess them up, but those are actually choices certain members of my family make because enduring food shopping with me while my son is in his class is too difficult.
Basically, the whole drive around, coordinating five different schedules, etc, etc. and having what amounts to two full time jobs starts all over. Vacation, as much work as it was, is over.
