Status Updates posted by Farrar

  1. I always give up most of my social media for Lent, but with the election, I finally got fed up with Facebook, so for the tail end of Lent, I'm giving up Facebook and hanging out in this lovely, civil, election free social media zone with all of you wonderful people instead. Sanity now, please.

      I unfollowed so many people during our last election. My blood pressure just couldn't take it.

      Dh keeps wanting to discuss politics. Ugh. I don't want to give him up but don't push me too far!

      I'm not allowed to not talk politics with dh. It's his job. I don't mind with him though. It's discussion with memes that makes me want to scream.

  2. Hey, guys, I took a forum break and then came back. I just can't quit y'all, I guess.

      Intentional. Because the forum is so secretly gay. (not... I just can't stop myself making pop culture references most of the time...)

      I've not been able to quit long term either though now I'm not very active on the boards.

      LOL! I haven't even tried to quit y'all, and it's been more than 3 years now.

  3. Okay, this is pretty funny. The last time I had a status update, it was that I was taking my Lent forum break. And now... I was like, oh, I should put that as my status, which was when I saw I never bothered to change it from before. Um, be back after Easter.

  4. Taking my yearly Lentan forum break. Be be after while. :)

      I'm not taking a complete break, but I will be severely limiting my time. :)

      I hope to see you at the VAHomeschoolerd conference! I'll be at the SWB and highschool talks.

  5. Trying to find a nice balance between enjoying my social media and not letting it overtake me.

      Please keep up the blog! We have gotten a lot of good book recommendations from you.

      AGH!!! but I just downloaded the Writer's Jungle... Who will explain it to me now??!! lol


  7. Dh is singing songs with the wrong lyrics again. I'm pretty sure there's no line in Auld Lang Syne where remember is rhymed with December.

  8. Clean a little. Check WTM. Clean a little. Check FB. Clean a little. See what the kids are watching on TV. Clean a little...

  9. There is stop-motion mania happening here today.

  10. Perfect Christmas.

  11. The owl pellet dissection kit we got from Home Science Tools has a choking hazard warning. Ew.

      There are few things my 8yo won't put in her mouth, but I think even she would be icked out of an owl pellet. Uck.

      The frozen mice for DD's snake are labeled "Not for human consumption". Uh, I think we could have figured THAT out!


  12. TCB, which tonight includes sending emails and building Lego presents.

  13. By the afternoon, I will have taught other people's children (and mine, of course) four days out of five this week. Too many for my sanity.

  14. Note to self: do not walk to the grocery store if you intend to buy more than you can carry home without killing your arms.

    1. sgrcn77


      I did that yesterday ! I had to go home and get the car.

  15. Whine. I don't feel like teaching co-op tomorrow.

    1. Farrar


      Yeah, you know it's bad when you're dreading getting up before you've even gone to bed.

    2. LibraryLover


      That's why I never do it. Sounds good at first, devolves quickly. Of course, I didn't learn that until 20 years into parenting. ;)


    3. Farrar


      I actually adore my co-op. I'm just in a whiny mood. If I had to do anything tomorrow I'd whine about that. By tomorrow, I'll be glad I did it.

  16. Oh yeah. This exists. Um, eating dinner.

  17. I want to like this new format... It's just so buggy.

  18. Thanks, jade! Indeed, I Capture the Castle may be my favorite book. :)
