Thursday we finish GSWL and start Lingua Latina!

Oh, and here’s something for all my Latin lovahs:

That is an interesting article. Although I must say, part of the reason I study Latin is because I have no interest in speaking it.

I’m back. We had our homeschool Group Valentine’s Party. It was outside and the weather decided that the first week of February was far too early for spring, so in spite of The Sun, the wind was cold. And of course, I chose the wrong day to go off sugar. I sat and ate Lofthouse cookies all afternoon. While listening to my friends talk about how their kids eat kale and all that carp and I’m sitting here thinking, “i’m Lucky if I can even get my oldest to choke down 3 kernals of corn. He thinks French fries counts as a vegetable.” And I stuff another Lofthouse cookie into my mouth.😩


I used to go to a Catholic mom group but we started talking more about paleo this organic that than faith or kids or marriage...so one of the reasons I’m avoiding them. 👀. I mean, I get that most of them have health issues that they’re desperately seeking solutions for, but still. It gets one-uppy real fast. “My kids only have cereal on holidays”. “My kids don’t even know what cereal is!”
I’m bored and I want some cereal, preferably covered in melted marshmallows and butter.

Libby woke me up from my nap. Bailey had her big fat bunny butt in the bedroom doorway and Libby wanted to go by. Bailey wouldn’t move so Libby brushed past her and Bailey got mad and bit her. And Libby yipped. So much drama around here.

The Korean bowls were delicious! I put way less brown sugar, and can cut it even more next time. We also made roasted asparagus and bacon wrapped pickles. So much yumminess!

No, that's what I meant. It's for ITTers, families are optional. So we can have dinner together.

Ah, okay. I'd probably flunk that too, though. For instance, I was supposed to bake potatoes tonight. But DH didn't get home on time and I had to run to leave the boys with Nana so I could go to writers' meeting. And then that went over. I'm scarfing down potato soup and planning to hog the chocolates that one member gave us for Valentine's Day tomorrow. :drool5:

I got to dance tonight; Dh didn't come with me this time (it's an Irish step dance class we usually go to together) but he stayed home to take care of the fussy baby so it was all good.

I'm going to be dreaming "tip down, tip down, treble-hop-back" all night.

Make sure to eat before taking the antibiotics. IIRC. I threw up once while driving because of an antibiotic. I took it, and then as soon as I started to get nauseous, I ate something, but too late. With the rest of the pills, I ate first, and it went fine.

Get this: I got the one dose kind and took it in water and had a big TexMex casserole meal. It worked on the infection nearly immediately, and in under 24 hours I barely had any symptoms (bladder infection). But now that the infection is practically gone, terrible gastro side effects.

Luckily I did not get dizzy. I prefer gastro issues to a bladder infection. It reminded me of that part of childbirth where you have to remember to breathe.

Good morning, lovelies! Happy Valentine's Day! It's going to be a good day.

Today we are going to do our math and reading and handwriting. I also want to do writing and grammar and spelling, but we'll see how far we get. Read alouds will be courtesy of audiobooks due to Mama's sore throat, and will include SOTW vol 2 (I think we're on chapter 5) and Anne of Green Gables.

Stupid head cold won't go away.

We're making Leek and Parmesan Quiche, broccoli, and baked potatoes for Valentine's Day dinner. And brownies!

(No ITTers were harmed in the making of this dinner.)
