  1. Well, I've finally reached veteran homeschooler status. I just bought a set of curricula that was already on my shelf. 😩

  2. I start nursing school on February 1st. My first pair of scrubs arrived today. Size medium! And they weren't even tight!

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

  4. Guilty confession: I'm considering rewashing two items that I didn't hang soon enough, to avoid ironing.

      Sometimes putting them in the dryer for 10 minutes or so with a wet washcloth works!

  5. Two weeks to my oldest daughter's wedding.Two days until my first grandchild turns 9 months. About two months until the youngest graduates high school. And ten months since we got the news my oldest and only son died. I am a bundle of emotions.

  6. We've only been on our "summer break" for a week now and dd13 is already begging to start school again. I need a break, People! lol

  7. What a lovely way to wake up. DH screaming GS4's name because he can't find him in the house. Fortunately we found him in some cabinets before calling the police. Later today I think we'll be making sure he can

      It is a Jungle, after all :-)

  10. Got my kids hooked on Scarecrow and Mrs. King.....hard to believe I was their age when I watched it!

  12. My life is not really back to normal after having the baby 4.5 years ago LOL

      I was going to say my life never did get back to normal--I think we have to find a new kind of normal after kids! But especially with those that have developmental delays. (((Hugs)))

  13. I can't make everybody happy, but I can make everybody equally slightly-unhappy

  14. "Mom, I noticed that there's some Norse mythology and Vinland stuff from reading Aesir's Kids and Leif the Lucky in the Horrible Histories: Vicious Vikings book I'm reading."

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

  16. Breached my pre-pregnancy weight today! *happy dance* Baby just turned 8 months old.

  17. My 14yo told me I sound mad in my texts to her. Apparently putting periods at the ends of my sentences makes me sound mad.

  18. My "baby" turns 21 today - all adult "kids". Time sure flies. Hubby and I were reminiscing with Time in a Bottle ringing through our heads. We've had an awesome parenting time together. I just wish we could relive some of it...

  19. Dog is dying. Hubby and I having a hard discussion today.

  20. Wrote up my most recent birth story, because it was a doozy: http://www.sheknows.com/parenting/articles/1130011/i-delivered-my-own-baby-in-car

      Oh my goodness! Thank you for sharing your story, and I'm glad everyone was okay! LOVE your son's picture at the end! What did you do with the car?

  21. Son, looking in fridge at dessert I made: "What's this? Science?"

  22. My 7 year old just made me complete 2 sentences for copywork...in cursive!

  23. My family doesn't need a calendar to know it's a holiday tomorrow. They can tell from the smell of the pies running over in the oven :)

  24. Some businesses are rushing things just a bit, imo. We received our first holiday card today (from our Edward Jones agent), and Walgreens has their New Year party supplies out. Slow down, people!

      New Years! I'm used to Christmas coming out almost right after the Back to School sales, but now rushing to New Years too?

  25. I hate this about my native culture: people tell each other they are too fat, too ugly...Last night on the phone my middle school classmate told me his impression of me was outstanding student, very kind-hearted, not good-looking (ugly). Granted, I did ask him what impression he had of me first. It still stings. I know all along how people in my native country think of me. It stings to hear it. So very glad my American dh praises me beautiful every day and my Maker thinks I am beautiful!

      I always think of you as beautiful because I love your screen name! So glad that Christ has helped you overcome the hurt.
