Whine, Whine Whine

This school at home thing is going to kill me. I am not a teacher. I don't want to be. I call it the "Evil Mom School." E says, no, it's not school. It's the Evil Mom Homework. Well, fine. 4 weeks of Evil Mom Homework then. 2.5 hours per day, 5 days a week.

Meanwhile, the woodchuck is happily pushing through boards into the run, even after I set things back up this morning. So more spicing for him and the boards put back.

I'm wrung out. Yesterday I wrote a teensy bit and then sort of dozed. That's about how I feel today. I don't come out of these sessions exactly charged up with creativity. I swear teachers do.

But we did get the tv room and her desks all cleaned yesterday.

Have you tried positioning a bucket of water to drench the woodchuck when he starts digging, or some other water scare tactic? We had a woodchuck under our shed, but after the above ground pool collapsed and sent a big wave through the area, there was no woodchuck under the shed for 2-3 years. Not that such was our intention, of course.

Of course maybe the water kept him away only because it told him it was a bad place to build a home. I don't know if they hate water in general.

woodchucks pick well-drained locations. so that would explain the effect of a sudden flood on yours. If we weren't in drought, I'd try running the hose under the coop and barn for a while.

I honestly don't know how parents do it. I salute you.
