MY DAY: Sunday…. and we’re off….

It’s 10:25 PM, Sunday night, and my day that began at 1:00 PM is finally complete.

I love these long days exhausting though they can be at times.  Once I get started the momentum only increases.  By 9:00 PM I should feel tired but I am only more eager to forge on.  Having fantastic students, Sunday through Thursday, makes a world of difference, too.

While the dogs love having guests who “only come to see them,” it is obvious they are thrilled their Dad-time has arrived as they are all camped out around my chair in my study as I listen to Spectrum’s (cable television/internet provider) lousy reception of Think TV’s AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: Walt Disney.

Monday, like my Wednesday, begins at 8:30 AM with homeschooled and students in college prep courses through Noon, and then again from 2:00-9:40 PM.  My Tuesdays and Thursdays begin by 1:00 PM, but I am done by 8:00/7:30 PM those evenings.  I spent two hours of my Sunday morning working on plans for the week, so I am officially ahead of schedule as I prepare students for musicals, SISTER ACT (just starting), BONNIE & CLYDE (Clyde, Ted, Young Clyde, Clyde’s dad, Clyde understudy), and auditions for school musicals and Muse Machine’s January production, HELLO, DOLLY!.

I spent two hours of my Sunday morning working on plans for the week, so I am officially ahead of schedule as I prepare students for musicals, SISTER ACT (just starting), BONNIE & CLYDE (Clyde, Ted, Young Clyde, Clyde’s dad, Clyde understudy), and auditions for school musicals and Muse Machine’s January production, HELLO, DOLLY!.

Griffith, who is taking college prep classes three mornings a week, is also working 32 hours each week at Dorothy Lane Market and is excited to begin working crew for a high school production to which he was invited to participate.

It’s Sunday.

For most families, Sunday is the end of the weekend. For The Haasienda it is the start of the week… kind of… now that I stop to think of it, our week and weekend kind of merge all into one gigantic package of time.

We do have a blast!
