Just wanna be a homebody

Anyone have any suggestions on how I can just stay at home? I'll bet when I get older I'll be wanting my rocking chair and Jari will be itching to go, go, go ... just like his dad. Did stay home yesterday morning and cleaned .. that felt good. Just need to do some baking!! Anna & Tia can' t sleep in no matter how much they'd like to. They signed up for summer school. Goes from 8 to 11:15 every day. They have a blast ... good way to burn up part of the day & learn at the same time. They come home, straight to the pool (another one with a blow up ring on top ... short term stay dog chewed the one from last year), then crash. Wake up and do whatever. Yesterday it was swim suit searching. I do not like shopping. I like to browse crafty/antique/housewares type of stores. I do not like to "browse" and "hunt" for clothing. I go the store to find a black shirt and I buy a black shirt. Or ... flip through Walmart racks on my way through the store. Well we went searching ... still didn't find a suit for the one who desperately needs one. Oh for annoying. In the evening we delivered a truck for someone and got to visit some very dear friends for a while ... Ben & Jeanette Wuollet & clan. That isn't part of my not leaving the house problem, they are a joy. I just wish they lived closer. Girls came home and cleaned their room until at least 11:00. I don't know what bug bit their behinds, but thanks to the bug ... the room looks awesome! Now I need to try and rouse them .... this ought to be fun! Brock is gone & needs to be picked up at 10 this morning. He gets to come home and do placement testing for home schooling next year. Can you believe I am going to do this?? He is willing & ready ... will take some adjustments to this schedule of mine. This weekend we will be running again ... I work Friday ... so after that we're free! Will let you know which direction we end up running when the weekend is over. Jari is getting just a little "peer pressure" in the weekend department ... amazing how that somehow never ends ... is actually a hoot!

Have a great day all of you!

You are amazingly talented! Love the painting!
When and if you ever figure out how to stay at home, let me know. Good luck with the home schooling thing, wish I could do the same but not ready to give up on our second income just yet. Sounds challenging and rewarding at the same time!

Sell your paintings and you could stay home, they are all so impressive. Heather
