I’ve noticed this trend. Whenever I go somewhere during the “working” day, someone inevitably comments “but you don’t work right?” as soon as it comes about that I home school my child. And I have to ask, you – not them, what exactly do you think I do all day? Eat bonbons and watch soap operas. I can’t remember the last time I ate a bonbon (keto mug cakes do not count) and Property Brothers is not a soap opera despite the hi-jinx and twins involved. So this is what I did yesterday while “not working” and to be honest this is pretty close to an average day for me.

There you go, my non-working day. Seriously, I miss the days when I went to the office for my job for 8 hours.
Then on the drive home I saw this sign. “Life sometimes hands you lemons but you don’t have to suck on them.”
Well crap. ROFL. Fine, I’m going to take them lemons, add butter, almond flour, an egg, monk fruit extract and make me a mug cake.
