  1. I am going to be a MIL! That is all.

  2. I learned a new word today: bildungsroman.

      ah, German borrowed words. :-)

  3. Having a pity party upon realizing that of the 8 "core" courses for my 1st BA in psychology 2 decades ago, I took 7 (only needed 5 to graduate) but the 8th, Perception, is the one my target grad program wants. I can take it as part of the master's but it will add to the cost :-(

      Doh! I've been looking into a certain grad program and am shocked by how many classes I lack. Boo.

  4. We finished the school year today. *kinda sad*. This was our best school year ever.

      Wow! How did you manage that? Any summer plans?

  5. Facing the mid-year slump! How do you keep your motivation going when you're ready to be done for the school year??

      One day at a time. I just do it and don't ask if I want to.

      I got mine in the mail early this week. I'm scared to start using it!

  7. Kicking myself for waiting so long to discover Prof John McWhorter's linguistics Great Courses. Consider this a PSA! :)

  8. $930 tuition plus ~$40 textbook rental is an awful lot of money to learn ONE new thing so far in my "Language Science" course aka Grammar 101. "Particles" were not in any of my kids' grammar textbooks.

  9. Really don't like Emma. Looking forward to finishing it so that I can resume Exodus.

      I only made it through Emma because I'd watched Clueless and knew that things would be OK. Yeah, not my favorite, but it has grown on me.

  10. So if I am having a hard time getting my daughter to do her math lesson because she is making hexaflexagons and thinking about patterns do I consider that a success?

    1. EmilyGF

      EmilyGF

      I was sort of laughing at myself as I tried to get my daughter to focus and realized, "This is a good problem!"

  11. Why does outsourcing classes feel like such a failure?

    1. EmilyGF

      EmilyGF

      There are certain homeschooling groups who view it as such. There are also people who view buying pre-made bread and pre-made sausage as failure. I view it as being wise in using your resources and knowing your strengths.

  12. Adulthood is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

    1. EmilyGF

      EmilyGF

      Or knowing a car is going to hit you but having to walk anyway.

  13. Just told ds11 he isn't allowed to practice piano for more than 20 minutes. Had to set the timer for when he needs to stop. My mom never had that problem with me...

    1. EmilyGF

      EmilyGF

      I don't think I would have stopped him if it was writing or reading he hadn't done, but I draw the line at math!

      He had actually practiced for 90 minutes Monday, so I'm not a meanie. He just hadn't done any math yet and had a lesson coming up later that day. :-)

  15. What do you call that place where the kids are still too sick to do normal stuff, but not too sick to annoy each other?

    1. EmilyGF

      EmilyGF

      or, if that doesn't work, time to read in bed?

  17. Tornado warning in San Diego?!? Dude, El Nino needs to chill out.

      We live in the midwest and hubby is in San Diego right now. Not frequent that one can boast of better weather in the midwest than So Cal!

  18. Gave myself permission to give away clothing that is five sizes away from the next child that would wear them, instead of storing them.

    1. EmilyGF

      EmilyGF

      I did that after we had a few bags of clothing mildew in storage. Good for you!
