Someone tell my stupid pork roast to hurry up and get done. I wanna watch Jeopardy. Hmph.

Hurry up pork roast! I need JJM to tell me how Jeopardy went. I hope it didn't get interrupted for her.

A hurry up and cook Booya so we can celebrate our wonderful WTM peeps.

I dedicate this Booya to Ellie and all of our veteran homeschoolers of ITT. :party:

We did history WTM style so we chose books from the TWTM list (including Speilvogel as a spine) and Great Courses lectures. We combined history and lit. and did them together.

Do you want to get picked? If so I will root for you getting picked. If not I will root for lots of plea bargains or other jurors.


Yes, I want to get picked. But not on Friday, if that means another week. My interest only extends so far.

I missed Jeopardy and the kerfluffle. Because music.

Tchaikovsky, in all his glory:

(Especially 17:20-19:20 one of the most glorious passages of music)

And then the lovely Nimrod:

Coffee.

 

I think we have an appointment or some kind of meet up with someone (2 are even school related) every day this week.  Except Friday.  And one or two things every night.  

 

More coffee....

I want a boxed curriculum that I can plan myself. I don't mind if I have to gather the parts. Anyone have any ideas? :D

All parts of past years' curricula that aren't getting reused here get put with the output of the year's work in a file box.

 

As I gather things for an upcoming year they often get put in a box until I clear the appropriate shelf space.

 

Boxed curricula!

 

 

My cat declares that all you need are good empty boxes placed strategically throughout the house.

 

 

My youngest dear nephew declares anything in a box to be a present, which (of course) means it MUST be opened and removed from said box.

 

 

General concensus:  have plenty of boxes, place them strategically throughout the house, an make sure you have plenty of things to put in and take out of said boxes.

I had a great day yesterday and got a lot done, apparently a result of Second Coffee... and so I did not fall asleep for hours, and now I am a sleepy whitehawk on the very day when we need to get done early and go to activity group.

 

Did I mention we hardly ever get to activity group?? It starts at 11. :/ It's 8:52 and we're in PJs.

 

Update: We're dressed, but DS says he doesn't feel well. Couch day it is.

My idea of boxed curriculum is curriculum that I buy and put in a box until I'm ready to plan it. So that's every curriculum out there as far as I know, because even pre-planned curriculum has to be planned to account for sick days, breaks, the student's ability to progress, Mom's tolerance to the books and or material...

And y'all say that so much better than I do. :laugh:

I have to say my patience is wearing thin with my mother. She will be here a year in May. I think I have done fairly well with adding another whole person to my household, and the upheaval it has caused to my family. I am about to blow up. That is what I do. I keep taking and doing and taking, and it builds and builds. Then I tell someone off real good. Grrr.

Ugh!

Yes! My mom always had snakes. I have spiders, snakes, and sometimes floating ghost-men. I can usually talk myself out of the hallucinations now.

The worst is when I wake up and I am terrified because there is a strange man in my bed and I have to attempt to quietly sneak out of bed without waking him. I usually come out of it before getting to the door.

I gave myself a crash course on parasomnia yesterday because I my protagonist gets the screaming horrors with some of the things he sees. I'm lucky.

I used to have a few episodes like what you describe--mostly things walking out of my closets. Not so much now.

Hi!  Need more coffee!  Late night run to town (well, at 8 pm) meant I went to bed waaaaay past my bedtime!

 

Downside of living in small town:  Everything (well, except McD's and Taco Bell and the AFSA) is closed at 8!  No celebratory milkshake!  But the grocery store was still open and had Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream!  So we crashed Nana's house at almost 9 pm for a party!

 

It's gonna be a long day!  More coffee!!
