And the milk production has dropped drastically the past week. Last week, we were getting not quite a full gallon/day. This week? Barely a half gallon/day. NOTHING has changed. I've added in grains on the stand (crushed corn, rolled oats, black oil sunflower seeds) to see if I can't get the production back up.....but it's just weird.
Sukkot is slowly drawing to a close. We bombed it this year - no tent (because it was too wet to set it, and it's been WAY too windy to even attempt it. :sigh:) We've been eating dinner on the patio, but it's not the same. I've also had the table too cluttered to use, so we've been eating lunches/breakfasts in temporary spots - not ideal, but......it was all I could come up with. (Setting up a PVC sukkah in the house is NOT an option - I have dogs. Big ones. That don't realize how big they are. And small ones. Ones that like to CHEW. :sigh: Maybe next year, should we be here. But I hope we're not.) Monday is the 8th day.....and, fortunately this year, it falls on a Federal Holiday. Why fortunately? Because that means SG will be home, and IF this is it, no one will be missed until Tuesday. :grin: (And if it's not, well, Hannukah is coming up, but I'm not sold on it. Passover would be my next "hit".)
School notes: I can NOT let the kids have 2 weeks off in a row. If I do, they come back (well, SHE comes back) totally blank. We've been fighting Algebra all week...fortunately, I planned 2 weeks for her Mid-Term, and 2 weeks for Himself to watch Khan Academy videos...but I had hoped that I was over-planning. Nope. Out of the 10 problems I've had her do so far (out of 15), she's missed 8. :bangs head: So, this week is now review, and we'll do the "real" paper next week. :sigh:
Work is almost caught-up. I wanted to be completely done with the 4 companies this week; I have 2 done, 1 almost done, and 1 not started. And I'm not doing them today, because of the blasted headache - I worked on the 3rd one this AM, but.....I can't think. :sigh:
Gotta go round up the kids to start, so I want to wish you all Shabbat Shalom!
