Glad I do this or I would have no idea what day it is! DH is off today since he worked a double on Sunday. But he goes in tomorrow for a single. Then off again. Til Sunday. He’s still on evening parent duty on days he can. I’ve at least started them thinking about getting an automatic diabetic tester. Don’t know if it’s them or the doctor who’s the problem.

I’ve got laundry going and dog’s taken care of. Need to take her for walkies early since rain is again expected by noon. 

DD has her 2 classes today. So vacuuming down here will have to wait until in between or after.

Got my CSA bag. Need to unpack, clean, figure out how I’m using & store. 

Its Wednesday so bills, filing and receipts tbd. STill need to figure out the banking app

oh! DDs school changed their plans yesterday. They’re going to start students coming to campus Sept. 8th now. Phasing them in and doing dual instruction until they’re all there Oct 5th. Then home for thanksgiving and finals online. Details to follow. 

May do leftovers for dinner. made lots of chicken last night. May do pasta for the family.

Yesterday was a whirlwind of errands....so nothing (except I did practice piano) got done at home.  Today I really need to make up for that.  Having dh "not" working is really weird and screwing with my schedule.

He has a list of projects to keep him busy today....so hopefully that helps.

Unloaded the dishwasher, kitchen still needs cleaning.  Also need to clean out the fridge.

Sourdough starter needs feeding.

Need to figure out lunch and dinner. At some point....a grocery trip.  But I still need to figure out food for the weekend and a drink for Friday night's dock party.

Dump day.  Need to gather all the trash and recycling. should be a project cause I haven't done squat since Thursday.  LOL

Practice piano

I have a giant pile of mail and bills and receipts to go through.

And I need to get a sympathy card and order a carbon monoxide detector for the boat (marine grade, wired in).  Which should be a project and a half.

Best to get after it I guess.....

I know what you mean! DH decided to take a nap on the couch just when I wanted to vacuum the rug in there! If it’s not the dog in the way it’s him...

She liked yesterday’s class better than the Monday/Wed ones. They are both the “Foundation” courses - Why College? (How to act and do things in college - her HS well equipped her for this and she wrote a note to a teacher to thank her yesterday since she saw how little the other kids knew). The other one is about Community - explores the area/gives them some bearing around Ithaca.

So they exhausted her mentally the first day. Plus they are full and moving slow using Zoom, so the Prof’s are assigning stuff they should have covered in class as homework. So she’s been busy doing that something she didn’t consider when signing up for them.

The Tues/thurs class is more to her liking Subject wise. It’s about game design and taught by a film writer prof. Right up her alley! She’s totally enjoying it.
