best laid plans and such.  I came home to take Spence to his game and discovered I was feeling really ill.  All day at work, I was feeling off, had a headache and pretty much felt like a truck ran me over, but I figured a small power nap and I'd be good....not so.  I ended up sleeping almost 19 hours from the time I came home to this morning.

Spence took care of the animals, gave me some meds for my aches / pains and headache and such and Karma decided it was her job to snuggle up to me and make sure I stayed warm.

I woke up this morning feeling a bit better, but not sure yet how much better.  Will wait to see how breakfast settles and then decide from there.

Spence has a game tonight, so I need to at least make it for that.

Another very busy day at the Dahl household.  Spence has Dr. Jekyll, Essay writing, English 30 and Volleyball today at a minimum and then out with his dad tonight.

I am off to my client's this morning, volleyball this afternoon and then off to a birthday celebration of a good friend.  Once home, I plan to prep the basement wall for the foam insulation and then do a bit of studying and work.

Well, today was an interesting Latin class as the teacher forgot about it and didn't show up.  She was attending a funeral and was busy with the arrangements and completely forgot - but the kids decided to have the class anyhow and did a self-directed class.  They didn't assign any homework though as they don't know what the teacher had planned for the following week.

Spence worked on his essay, Dr. Jekyll and his English 30 and he did the dishes.

I ended up home at 3pm as my client had a team building event (shooting range) and so I did the photographs for it.

Spence and I went to Best Buy to grab a few things and then once Green Chili opened, we went out for our weekly dinner.  Once we got home, I finished shoring up the basement wall so that I can put up the next layer (closed cell foam insulation) tomorrow or Saturday.  Now it's time to study a bit and do a bit of work, while Spence plays some video games on the living room TV (currently the basement is not useable).


Yesterday, Spence worked on his essay class homework and did some latin in preparation for today's class.

He is struggling with having to get up at 8:30 for the class, every 2nd day - but life will throw morning classes at him and it's a good idea to learn how to deal with them now.

He is also still working through (very slowly) his English 30 key and his Dr. Jekyll homework for next Tuesday's class.

Tonight is a rest and relax night for both of us - our only night without any major commitments this week.

Spence had a lot of school to catch up on (and still does), but he got up yesterday at 10am and did some school, decided a nap was in order and then got up again about a half hour later and did more school - Latin & Dr. Jekyll were the big ones yesterday.  He still has his essay writing, more Latin and more Dr Jekyll to do this week and he also has his English 30, driving practice and PE stuff.

I got home around 4:30 and drove him straight to his volleyball practice - I ended up dropping him off and heading to the grocery store to get the majority of our groceries for the week and then had a training session for both Priya and Karma with Jenn.

When we were almost done, James dropped Spence off as he had arrived around 5:30 at the dome to watch Spence practice and then take him out for supper at Earl's afterwards.

Spence did more homework once he was home and I got myself organized and did some client work and then we both toddled off to bed by 11pm as we have a long day again today.

PE for Spence, along with Latin first thing and then his novel study group in the afternoon before dinner - and we have Paige over for dinner - she's trying out a new recipe on Spence (Lobster).

So....since the 9th.....

Spence got injured in volleyball practice, then got sick and then sliced his toe open....this will be the first week he's back at it.

He did some school while he was sick - Latin, Essay Writing, Novel Study group and a bit of English 30.

He's back at it this week - a bit of school, driving practice, PE and Volleyball.
