Diligence - A Big To Do


We are pretty much home ALL DAY today - yay! There are 20 items listed on my To Do list for today. I have already thought of a couple I forgot, and have put the 2 laundry maidens to work (forgot "laundry" - imagine that).

I find that I seldom complete everything on my To Do list, but if I don't write it down, I wind up doing a whole lot of nuthin'. In recent years, that is, the post-45 years, I find I do better writing bigger and with a bolder pen for lists like this. I still like to write smaller with a fineline pen , but my list is not effective if I have to find a pair of reading glasses to glance at it.

My all-time favorite pens: Pilot Precise V-5, Pentel R.S.P.V, and Sharpies.


When we were up in Georgia for the wedding last week, I observed that my SIL was carrying around an old-fashion Flair pen. Back in the 70's Flairs were the coolest. Her list could be read from about 5 feet away. I gotta get me one of those.



As though I need more pens...

How's this for cheating? I can't find my reading glasses so I just took a business card to the copier and blew it up 400% so I can read it.

Good luck with your list. I don't typically make a daily to-do list, but I'm surprisingly pleased with the progress I've already made on my summer list. Lately, if I have "free time", I ask myself if there is anything on my summer list I could be doing. This morning, I've been out to my car vacuuming and cleaning the leather. All before 9 am! Last week I was able to put all of JD's school work for the year into a binder (it must be 3 inches thick!) and I'll work on Jax's this week. (BTW, how do you meet the evaluation requirements for Earthgirl: CAT, evaluator, ?)A big to-do is to pick up my homeschool room, which seems to be the "catch-all" room of my house. It's a pitstop for all the things that don't have a proper "home". My boys are comatose after a very busy weekend, so no school yet.

ScienceGeek - good start to your Monday! We do Evauation with our friend from church, but will probably test next year so she will have some testing experience. She has never done a standardized test in her whole life.

My kids have never done standardized testing either, but would like to one year. I had just wanted them reading fluently before I had them tested. I think it's a good tool to gauge the effectivness of a homeschool. We have a new evaluator this year (Keisuzi had evaluated the boys from the beginning, and we'll miss her!). I'm a little nervous.

Just so you know - I have a thing for pens and markers, too. I still have a drawer full that I brought home with me when I retired (a gift they didn't know they gave me?) and that was almost {gasp} seven years ago now! Sadly, though, the supply will end some day, then I'll have to go out and buy some - darn!

Now, where in GA were you??? Don't you know you could have come to visit me??? :o) Becky G.
