Today was another pretty busy day, which is kind of discouraging seeing how early it is in the school year! Jasper worked on school this morning and then I took Lucy out for a mother-daughter lunch. After that I took her to a store to buy some new jeans and we both were horrified at the price. When you are over six feet tall, you can’t buy the cheap jeans at Walmart!
I think we now have all the pieces we need for the Bolivia visa application, so we should be able to mail it out tomorrow. What a chore.
Jasper and I had more schoolwork to do this afternoon, and then Lucy headed off for a babysitting job and I headed off for a local homeschool resource fair. I had some brochures about this year’s classes but I doubt there was any interest. I do have the bare minimum to do my paragraph class this fall. The regular English classes are being handled very well by another lady and I do not believe there is enough demand for me to keep doing that also. And this year, I really need to focus on helping Jasper anyway.
The fair was very crowded, mostly with people I don’t know at all, and I realized after a while that my presence was not necessary. Even if someone picked up my brochure, they wouldn’t know to talk to me about it since they wouldn’t know who I was! So, since I had some shopping to do before picking up Lucy, I slipped out and drove to Walmart in the pouring rain.
Later, before leaving to pick up Lucy, I tried cooking a chicken in my instant pot. I am still rather afraid of it and have only tried it for one other thing so far. It doesn’t help that I can’t find the instruction manual and have to look everything up online! I ended up waiting for Lucy for 45 minutes so by the time we got home the chicken was very well done indeed. Still, I’d rather have it be a little overdone than not done enough!
Tomorrow, we will try to do school and I will also have a visitor.
