H is for "Humdrum Days"
At Ben and Me's Blogging Through the Alphabet, this week's letter is "H". The only word that kept popping up in my mind was "Humdrum".
You have those days, right? Or those weeks?
We had one of those weeks this past week. Dawson had oral surgery on Monday, Eli was home Tuesday with a cold, I was feeling bad because I am, well, a woman and it happens to us (if you know what I mean), and it's been rainy and dreary.
What do you do when you have a humdrum day?
We spent the week pretty much doing the basics and resting. But on Thursday, we had a movie day. We bundled up on the couch with blankets, hot green tea, and the dogs. We watched "The Secret Garden", because Brynne is finishing up our unit study on the book.
Then we watched "Journey to the Center of the Earth" because Dawson is reading the book with the same title by Jules Verne.
The other thing we concentrated on was reading. Brynne finished her second chapter book in the Puppy Place series, and I read more of The Great Gatsby to Dawson.
Most importantly, when we are having humdrum days, we just accept that they happen and remember to be GRATEFUL that we have the freedom to lesson our load.
How do you handle the Humdrums??
