Back to work...

This morning my kids are seated around the kitchen table dutifully doing their math... well, sort of dutifully, they are way too easily distracted. (No, they don't have ADD, they're just flighty little girls.) I, too, have put my nose to the grindstone and am organizing their worksheets for the week. Reading has already been done, so hopefully we can finish up the math in record time and go to the store before it;s a madhouse.

The boy is climbing up my back trying to steal the cookies off the shelf next to me--one of my last boxes of Samoas. Yeah, that's right, I bought 16 boxes of girl scout cookies and have been hoarding them since before Easter. The only reason they haven't lasted me till next Easter is because my husband discovered my stash and my supply has been rapidly declining in the last 2 months. Next year I will have to buy 20 boxes...

As I sit here copying page after page for these kids I can't help but wish I had one of those badass office copy machines that just suck in the pages and spit them back out, do front and back, and coallate your pages automatically. I have no idea where I'd put such a monstrosity in my house, but it would be the most useful homeschooling tool I owned if I had such a thing. Now my scrawny HP all in one printer looks even crappier.
