Election Recovery

We're having a laid-back sort of day. We didn't sleep much last night while waiting for the election returns, and so we're pretty low energy here. Wednesdays tend to be our "Saturdays"--usually a family day since the little boys don't go to dyetski sad and Saturdays are work days.

C3 woke up crying with an earache, and has slept most the day. The other boys are all stuffy, and I'm fighting a sinus infection. They took soaks in the tub, with eucalyptus-mint epsom salts and we're all sipping echinacea-mint tea.

Still waiting for the Ohio to be "officially" Bush's state. If you doubt it will go that direction, check the odds.

For now, C3 is painting. R5 is putting together a LOTR puzzle. J8 is nursing a cut on his finger. T6 is watching construction from their bedroom window. And I'm off to attend to some long-neglected laundry.

A very peaceful day-after for us.

very jealous!
we had a sudden power outage at 8:30 pm and then various and sundry garbage kept us up off and on all night
we got very little sleep --well the girls did, but we did not.
Still, since we didn't even START until Oct., we are schooling on!

We were verrrrrry relaxed-schoolers last year. This year I'm still verrrry relaxed compared to my friends who actually follow a teacher's plan book. But we're staying more on task. And it's great to see them learning and growing and observing the world.

Sorry about the rough start today. Good for your perseverance!

We are having a relaxed day here also. Travis and Caleb fell asleep at about 11:30 last night on the couches, Anna drifted off at 1:30, and I finally gave up my hopes for a victory announcement at about 3! So everyone here is a little tired and a little cranky.

But spirits are high now that Kerry has conceded; hallelujah!

Same here. I already have one sick girl. Add to that a sleepy, election-obsessed mommy which means we are getting very little done. I am very relieved that it is over now and not two weeks (or longer) from now.
