If this isn't a sign that I've been at the computer too much the last week, then I don't know what is. My darling daughter drew this today and delivered it to me, carefully folded inside an envelope. With a scowl on her face she stood by waiting for me to open it and said, "No more working, Mommy!" She usually writes lots of words on her drawings and even makes them extremely detailed, but this time she just wrote, "No" and an arrow pointing toward what I'm working on.
You KNOW it's my desk because it's messy. Very. And there appears to be some sort of, uh, disaster on the floor next to me. The disaster is probably a spilled drink or very possibly a pile of unfolded laundry. My family has begun dressing out my laundry baskets this week (I hope those were CLEAN clothes). Yep, that's me alright. She captured it perfectly! I was pretty much glued to my computer for the final two weeks. After enduring a collapse of my computer for 2 weeks, I just barely finished the last of three semester-long projects and can finally breathe a huge sigh of relief.
In case some of you were thinking Brayla drew this second picture, she didn't. It's real, I promise. Hi Brighton! :waves:
By the way, this is our ancient desktop computer that's been having such terrible troubles the last few months. So when my laptop died, it wasn't much help. But as you can see in the picture, Google chat still works. Thank goodness, right?!
I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
