Praying for a "normal" week

We have not had a full week of school/work since before Christmas break.  I know, crazy, huh?  So as a consequence, I feel that we have no schedule and I am just plain behind on everything.  For instance, I really want to make sure Andrew does a little "homework" each day as well as Adam practicing his piano (we are doing good on his homework at least).  But without a schedule, I just haven't been able to get this to work on any kind of regular basis.  Today started what I hope will be a "normal" week with fives days of school for Adam and four for Andrew (he never goes on Fridays).  This way I can also catch up on MY work and hopefully do a better job of making sure I am pushing them at home (while I might not homeschool, I am a big believer in that my children's' education is dependent on my involvement, which means volunteering and work at home).  I actually just managed to finish my grading for this week in moreorless on sitting, on schedule, and so hopefully will be able to slowly work on catching up all week.  I have a list of things I WANT to do that haven't gotten touched because it has been all about what NEEDS to be done, so I am hoping by the end of the week to start on that WANT list. 

I feel like we had a good weekend, where I got to do my volunteering at the First Ladies library and we got to do Generations of Faith at Church, despite Ray feeling very poorly.  Hopefully, though, he is on the mend and we'll all have a productive week!  Maybe I will even get to some of the housework I've been ignoring (let's just say don't look too closely at my floors....).
