I started keeping our schedule on a form that I found on DonnaYoung.org and it has worked great except that it makes me think in weeks instead of days. If we have a holiday or an impromptu visit from family or friends and we miss a day of our "week", then I get all discombobulated.
I then have to add that day to the next week but since we can only school four days during the week, it leaves me having to double up or skipping, or moving that last day to the next week and it's like bowling pins falling one after the other. At some point we knock them all out, but it takes time. And I'm frazzled.
And slightly crazy.
I could save myself the frustration by using a weekend day to complete the work or the evening of that missed day, but those times are sacred to us as a family. And even though I like to consider myself a hip homeschooler and an outside the box thinker, in reality, I like the inside of the box.
So I need to do something else. I think it will be as simple as erasing the days of the week from the top of the page and just doing the next day. Technically, I already do that, but seeing that Monday, Tuesday... at the top of the page really makes me crazy when it's Monday and we are doing Thursdays work!
Now where's my whiteout? Do they even sell it anymore?
