  1. Hi!  I see you stopped by to visit.  Hope to see you around here, at least every once in awhile.

  2. I am hanging in there. Mourning the death of my oldest son. 

  3. Quitting at school didn't last long. All it took was a friend who teaches 9th grade science getting breast cancer. :( Of course I'll come in for you as needed!

  6. Such a weird feeling to have your kids scattered across the globe

  7. Dh and kids and I are all home together. Such a small but glorious thing!

  8. Off to meet a Boardie in real life! Yippee!

      Well, I highly recommend setting something up if you can manage it. I knew I was going to be within shouting distance of Chrysalis Academy while I was visiting a friend in CA, and all the stars managed to line up for us to have lunch together. Do it if you can!!

  10. Feeling very proud of my family. We navigated what could have been a difficult family reunion with grace. Everyone was willing to forgive and take the high road. These are really good people, I'm lucky to be connected to them.

  11. Off to meet fil for the first time. He and dh haven't spoken in 30 years. This should be . . . interesting.

  12. The Hobbit opens tonight, with my beautiful girl featured as the Elf Queen. Yes, I know there was no Elf Queen in the book. Or the movies. But in the play, there is an Elf Queen, and she's it! Break a leg, honey.

  13. Vegan eats, historical fiction to watch, and homeschool planning. Does it get any better!?

  14. Note to self: No posting before coffee. This may prevent embarrassing posts in the future.

      "Not before coffee and not after wine." Too funny.

  16. Have I mentioned lately that I adore my DH? We started the day with homemade sticky buns. Now he's in there doing a turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, the whole works. Love!!!

  17. Nothing makes you feel more like a dinosaur than pulling out your old science textbook to plan a unit, and realizing that it is *20 years* old. Um, yeah, they have probably discovered one or two things since then . . .

      All of my college textbooks are long gone. I occasionally pine for my Calculus book, but otherwise no regrets over ditching them.

  18. PSA: If a poster suddenly disappears, let the mods know. It may be an overactive malware glitch, easily fixed. No need to assume they have entered the witness protection program!

      Hooray for a software glitch...never thought I would type THAT :)

  19. Have decided, after a long silence, to rejoin the conversations here at WTM.

  20. Ds was in a single car accident--thanks for all your prayers! His FB status? "It's scary how you can do everything to take careof your health and safety then get killed in a car crash. Lucky to have survived a crash going 70 without a scratch on me"

  21. I just planned our lit studies . . . for the next 6 years. Silly wabbit!

      Was The Reader's Odyssey helpful? I have it in my amazon cart :)

  22. What have I done? I have just agreed to being interviewed by a writer for our local paper about homeschooling. Wish me luck.
