  1. Baby is a lefty. She has horrible handwriting, but that’s about it.
  2. Good Morning!!!! COFFEE!!!!~D Monday!!😩😩😩😩😩 The Portal opened. I cannot believe it. I tried and tried all weekend, but all I got was a whole lot of nothin’!!! Had a so-so weekend. I got my second Covid shot on Saturday. I thought I was going to skate by without any side effects, but Sunday morning in church I started feeling not so good. I spent all yesterday afternoon in bed. I wasn’t feeling horrible, but just achy and had a headache. I think I feel better this morning. The tree guys finished Friday. They took out 5 humongous trees, and you can hardly tell. Three
  3. Good Morning!!! COFFEE!!~D Friday!!! Woohoo!! The Portal finally opened for me, I am so glad. School and work today. It is homecoming at DD’s school (they have one football game this year, tonight) so she is excited about that. I am significantly less than excited. The trees are almost done. Those men have worked hard. That’s a fact. It’s been fun to watch.
  4. Ahhh, Notgrass. I love Notgrass, but I am not using it right now. I used the primary grade US History book with my younger girls and they loved it. The supplemental book that had songs from early America and a CD was so good. My youngest daughter still has that book in her room and looks at it and listens to the music. I used From Adam to Us, America the Beautiful and Uncle Sam and You with my two older kids and they really liked it. It is interesting. It really is. Uncle Sam and You has information about how our country works that you will not find anywhere. And it is fascinating. The books a
  5. I’m getting my second vaccine on Saturday. I am anticipating symptoms.
  6. Good Morning!!!! Portal is open!! COFFEE!!~D School and work. Got an IEP at 8:30 this morning, several parent meetings that I am behind on.😩 Progress reports to get out. Various and sundry other tasks to get done. And edumacating my own chillens. Tree guy is supposed to come out today. We’ll see. Jeannie, call the countertop people. Junie, I am sorry you are not sleeping well.
  7. Portal is still open. I just kissed the kids tonight, so to speak. DS doesn’t want to be kissed and DD1 kept bugging me about going to her friend’s youth group tomorrow night. I am done with making decisions. I told her to ask DH. Ha! The little girls are already asleep.
  8. Oh my stars, the portal opened. I got in. Glory hallelujah!! I don’t even know what to say now. ”Hi, everyone!” I am still alive. The tree guy is supposed to come tomorrow and take out 5 trees, so we don’t get sued by our neighbor because our tree is damaging his roof.
  9. The thing is....they don’t start out rigid. So, you get sucked in, thinking.... this isn’t so bad. But then slowly, things start changing. And this isn’t conspiracy theory talk, here. I’m watching it happen, right in front of me.
  10. This is the thing. I absolutely agree that there are some “homeschoolers” who are pretty worthless and I really feel sorry for their kids. But once you start imposing standards.... it all sounds very good from a distance and on paper, but once it gets down to the nitty gritty of implementation.... it gets ugly. And scary. Who gets to make the standards? And you can’t teach everything....In California. The state standards for 4th grade is California history. What if I want to teach it in 5th? What if I want to continue with the second round of a 4-year history cycle? What if your child is not o
  11. Yes, when I got my plague shot I was pretty thrilled that I didn’t turn into a monkey. But you never know with anyone else, so you gotta ask about banana cravings.
  12. Good Morning!!! COFFEE!!~D Friday!!! The portal finally opened. I’ve been trying to get in the last couple days and to no avail!! I’ve had a horrible cold all week, but no time to just “be sick”. Work has been insane, my house is an absolute disaster, the tree guy just kinda does things on his own time (did y’all ever read “A Year in Provence” by Peter Mayle? Remember his frustration with getting his house worked on? 😂 This is me and the tree guy), DH had a tooth extraction yesterday..... did I mention my house is an absolute disaster?
  13. I was lazy all day. Watched too many Hallmark movies. I blame Angi. Ham and bean soup turned out right tasty. And I finished all the ham leftovers from yesterday.
  14. The Portal opened, so I feel like I should say something, but I don’t have much to say. Actually, I have nothing to say. I’ve been mostly lazy all day.
  15. Good Morning!!!! COFFEE!!~D Monday, but it is a holiday yet, so I am happy. Had a good afternoon yesterday with DH’s family. It was a beautiful day, the ham turned out good, even though I forgot to put on the glaze.
  16. Good Morning!! COFFEE!!!!~D Saturday!!! Busy busy day today. House cleaning and I gotta get food stuffs ready for tomorrow. DH’s family is coming over for Easter dinner. One family we haven’t seen since before the Plague, so I am really excited about that. I’ve decided to really torture myself and I have sour dough bread in the works.
  17. And he lived to tell about it. That is so awesome!!
  18. Good Morning!!!! COFFEE!!!~D A Blessed Good Friday to you all!! I’m taking the kids to the beach today. I wish DH could come, too, but he couldn’t get off work. I hate the drive, but it will be fine. Everyone’s allergies are going bonkers, so some fresh sea air will be quite welcome.
  19. If I wasn’t going to be a CIA operative, I think I would have liked to play keyboard in a 1970’s rock band. Maybe I could do both. Playing keyboard could be my cover. Hmmm, I never thought of that.
  20. The Portal finally opened. Went to the dermatologist today. Got a thing removed. Then went to Target and Hobby Lobby and Rubio’s for lunch. Yummy fish tacos.
  21. Yep, they’re done shackin’ up. They’re gonna make it official!!🤣 Just kidding, Jeannie!!
  22. I don’t keep a diary, actually, simply because I am afraid some day someone will read it and I don’t want that to happen.
  23. Good Morning!!!! COFFEE!!~D Humph Day!!! Busy day today. Taking DS to The Big City to finish up testing. Should have been done years ago, but.... at least it’s getting done now. DD has an allergist appointment and then she’s spending the night at a friend’s house. I will post my lemon bar recipe later. As soon as I wake up a little more.
  24. I made lemon bars. They are sooooo good. I made them for Easter, though, so they are now in the freezer. Most of them are.
