  1. Good Morning!!! COFFEE!!!!~D Friday Eve!!!! School and work. I have a math intervention training this morning and then this afternoon I am driving all the way out to the West Side to visit a family I haven’t seen in person since..... I can’t remember when. I’m looking forward to it, even though it’s going to be a long drive. The mom just had a baby, too.
  2. Yep!! I told DD she’s better get me a souvenir from there.🍫
  3. Last night of not-Awana. I got a chill. It’s not really that cold outside, but when your system has had 5 months of 90+ degree weather.... well, anything below 75 degrees is cold.
  4. DH and DD are going to the Hershey’s Chocolate Factory tomorrow.
  5. I found the cat. I closed a hall door while I was vacuuming like a wild-woman And she got trapped in the hall. I opened the door and she ran out, then stopped, Turned around and gave me a dirty look and Continued on her way. Hmph.
  6. I am a wreck. I had to make phone calls. I was so stressed I vacuumed my entire house. Now I hear a cat crying and I have no idea where she is. I don’t care. She’s just whining to get in the house. Or go out.
  7. Good Morning!!!!, COFFEE!!!~D Humph Day!!!! School and Work!! Last night of not-Awana. It’s been a good run, but I’m glad it is over till after the holidays.
  8. The a Dodgers won the World Series. It was a fairly uneventful game.now o owe the kids ice cream. Nothing of note happened today. DH and DD went to the Spy Museum. I was rather envious.
  9. We read about carnivorous plants in science. Now the girls are absolutely fascinated. I think they are pretty creepy.
  10. Not this year. We started SoTW last Christmas after we finished California History. I am combining it with some History Odyssey and recs from the second edition of TWTM. It’s going really well, actually. But..... I love Notgrass. I love the books, I love the literature..... maybe I should do both. All of it. Just have our school be history. Hmmmmm, now there’s an idea. It’s a History Booya/h, Baby!!!
  11. “He’s never gonna leave her....” ”You’re right, you’re right.... I know you’re right.” Carrie Fischer in “When Harry Met Sally.”🤣
  12. I’m not saying this to absolve us of anything we do or not do as homeschool parents, but through my experience as a homeschool parent, a teacher, observing experiences of my friends, and just reading books like “Educated” by Tara Westover, I really think the majority of whether a person is educated or not depends on the student.- how absorptive their mind is, how much they thirst for knowledge, how much they want it. Yes, the teacher, curriculum, and educational environment is important, but I don’t think it’s as crucial to the outcome as we like to believe.
  13. Good Morning!!!! COFFEE!!!!~D Tuesday!!!! School and work.
  14. So, ITT is kinda quiet tonight. Not much going on. DH and DD saw Monticello and Mt. Vernon today. Seems like they are having a good time.
  15. I filled out my ballot tonight. I’m going to take my chances with the postal service, too.
  16. I love curriculum. I always have this “grass is always greener” syndrome with History, though. We’re having a great time doing what we’re doing, but I keep thinking, “maybe Notgrass next year....” but I know if I change over I will wish we were doing what we are doing this year. I’m a wreck. Don’t listen to me.
  17. We use Saxon. We do all the problems. We did Teaching Textbooks and my kids learned nothing. We had success with CLE. I love A Beka math, too.
  18. I went to the Afsa. They didn’t have my prescription ready. I got other things and came home.
  19. Good Morning!!! COFFEE!!!~D Monday!!!😩😩😩😩 I slept well. I definitely need a much cooler room than DH. School and work today. Susan, I will see what I can do about that recipe. It’s in my Thanksgiving book “Thanksgiving 101” by Rick Rodgers. I love that book. Lots of stories and good recipes and ideas. DH texted me that they were on their way to Monticello. I am quite envious.
  20. I’m in bed. DH checked in. They saw Surrender Field. Looked like a regular field to me. They have an early day tomorrow, they are driving in to DC. Dodgers won. I think I may serve creamed onions for Thanksgiving. I found a yummy looking recipe.
  21. I am drinking orange spice tea and looking over my Thanksgiving binders. It’s actually a bit chilly today. DH has been checking in. They are in Williamsburg today. It’s raining.
  22. Watching Sportsball. The Raiders are losing. It it’s only half time. Go Derek.
  23. Good Morning!!!!, COFFEE!!!!~D Sunday!!!! Church!! I slept with the windows open last night. DH hates sleeping with the windows open. Too many sounds waKe him up. The sprinklers woke me up, yes, I admit, but I don’t care. I love fresh air. So, when he’s gone, I get to do what I want.
