My boring life

August 10th, 2006 at 01:18 pm

Apparently I lead a boring life. All I do is clean and teach...the fact that teaching is second only to healing in great gifts from God is prolly not important to those who think my life is boring..after all the only thing I do all day is teach..even the cleaning is don't think I care how often the bathroom gets clean do you? I am a class four slob, slobbish enough to not care about toilets, but clean enough to put up a good front (heaven help us when the kids move out!)

So all I do is teach.....I teach reading, I teach swimming, cleaning, nutrition, building, math, science, gardening (those who can't teach!) I teach bike riding, health, home ec, writing, computer science, and secretary skills (you don't think I write my own grocery list do you?) I teach else would I answer all their questions! frugality, balance, finances, goal setting, budgeting, and spending. I teach inventiveness (make do with what you have) I teach some home repair (or jury rigging) I teach language (mine and others) and much more.

Yet that is all boring, cause it is only bad..more people could have better educations if less people thought teaching was so boring..

Now I need to go 'teach' house design...I love having enough duplos for a mansion. Shall I reserve a room in it for teaching? Nah..wouldn't want to be locked into one room all the time. Can't get much teaching done that way.

    LOL! Princess, you forget, there's a third activity going on: Learning! ....because, everytime you teach something, I bet you learn a lot of new stuff, too!

    I currently lead a very boring life as well.

    I used to have much more stuff to talk about when I bought gadgets and toys that I don't need.

    But now, all I do is pay as much as I can into my debts.

    Yup... boring is good. Big Grin

    Yeah I have learned more in the past 4 years than in the previous 10!

    Though I aparently forgot to mention in my complaint post that as boring as it may seem to others I currently love my life Smile

    I printed this blog and showed it to the Moms in my play group, ok it is really my DS playgroup but since I get to plan an activity I am "Playing" too. When I mentioned it to my Pastor he asked to read it also.

    I guess other people find your boring life interesting. Like a reality TV show ... or maybe it really isn't that boring huh?

    That has been my life exactly since 1986!!! OMGosh I didn't realize it had gone on soooo long! Welp, darling teacher one, keep faith, there is an end in there somewhere or psuedo ending as the last of mine graduated this year from homeschool. Psheweeeeee - that was daunting!

    I suppose I shall go on teaching - we just had a teaching moment or two the last couple of days...explanation of little black sheeting that's put up to divert water flow on new construction sites -clarifying that they knew what that was for and another on 'power plays' as in not playing all of your information but holding some info back to be used in the future as needed which we equated with some game plays we use at home when we play Mexican Train or cards. The teacher/learner in us should stay active, even after we think we are through! After all it's a habit by now!! Smile

    habit! that is exactly the problem with mass education! it encourages a habit of letting other chose what you learn (and when you are tested on it) and encourages parents to drop the habit completly! Home Education means I can't go wondering off the learning path, too much is at stake for the future of my children!

    and I always wondered about those black things on construction yards! thanks Smile
    Mexican train?
