I've reached the point in the year when I've actually got some time to do things that aren't work and homeschooling and not really anything else.
Lest I let this time slip away in an unsatisfying marathon of mindless teevee and half-hearted email sorting, I'm working on ways to fill my time in a more fulfilling manner.
A big piece of that will be more walking! Ok, so that's a given.
Another piece will be doing some homeschool revamping. Thanks going to be a big chunk of July.
I've also been thinking of doing class through The Great Courses. I spent a good two hours today scrolling through and clicking on courses and getting nerdily excited about what I could learn more about. I didn't even look past the sale section of the site. Those that grabbed my attention: lots of European history, lots about literature. The one I'm really leaning toward is Understanding Linguistics: The Science of Language.
I have planned a full week for myself this coming week (root canal, anyone? no seriously, anyone want to do that in my stead?). Work, time with my family. Time in the sun (breaking out the dorky sunhat and slathering on the sunscreen). And maybe a little extra learning.
For now, though, I'm off to get a little rest. G'night.
