  1. My dreams tend toward mystery/suspense. Fortunately, I don't often remember them. I need coffee. Or second sleep. Or both. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  2. Red is history. Science is green. Math is yellow. Phonics/language arts is light purple and Literature is dark purple. All electives and extra-curriculars are orange. I think Latin would be pink. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  3. Do it, Critter! You got this! Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  4. We did speech, paid library fines, park day, lunch, groceries. I finally admitted to myself that I will not consistently work out without the accountability of a class, and joined the YMCA. I wanted to avoid shelling out the money, but since I've worked out exactly once this month, I figured it was time. I also got the info for spring soccer. They started offering a karate class as well, which is both cheaper and closer than our former karate class. I have hit my step goal for 8 days straight, and therefore raised it by 500 steps. Hooray consistency! I've also been doing better on my
  5. The boys have lost the stopper to their bathtub. They are upset because I won't get up to help them look for it. Apparently, I have this magical power called sight that no one else in the house has. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  6. Edpo: I'm looking at my curriculum for this year. Even with being so far off schedule, I think we can still finish before June. If I drop some less important assignments and do some exercises orally, that is. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  7. The puppies got me muddy. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  8. I have educated my children! They both survived. I'm sleepy. I'm going to try to nap, but will probably just lay there awake. I can never sleep during the day. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  9. I remember one time in 4th grade, we were having silent reading time. I was very into my book. After a while I looked up and the entire class had moved on and done 2 whole subjects without me noticing. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  10. ((Jean)) I have been lurking today, but I don't really have anything to say. I cleaned. I planned school. Captain Mal is drama and the dogs are annoying me. Weapon X is once again on a screen ban, so effectively the rest of us are too. I miss my husband. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  11. I make a master list of assignments for each subject for the whole year up front. Then each week I just plug in the next assignments into a checklist, print what needs printing, gather supplies, etc. Sometimes we decide we want to learn a skill or something that's not on my list. In that case, I press pause on the master list until we learn whatever it is, then just pick up where we left off. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  12. I have pretty severe social anxiety. The best friends I have ever had are ones that just kept coming to me, talking to me, regardless of how awkward I was. I try to be friendly and polite, but I never know what to say. Then I open my mouth and make things weird. Eventually, I open up and can hold a semi-normal conversation, but it takes a steady stream of continued interaction to get to that point. So just keep talking to her, even if it's awkward. Be prepared to carry the conversation until she's ready. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  13. I've met my step goal 4 days in a row. I think that's my longest streak ever. The weekend will probably ruin it. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  14. One of my worst symptoms during allergy season is constant fatigue. Allergies make me sleepy and sluggish, and so do allergy meds. I am destined to spend all of February half awake. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  15. I hit a wall. I think it's naptime. The children disagree. They have all the energy in the world. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  16. Planning for 2ND grade bores me, mostly because it's all just continuing what we're doing. Math: Continue with Shiller. I'm picking up Beast Academy 2a just to see if we (he) like(s) it. Play Prodigy for practice and review. Language Arts: He's (finally) making real progress with phonics, so we will move into the intermediate and advanced levels of Progressive Phonics. Lots of easy readers from the library. Starting grammar (maybe KISS?) once I feel he's ready. History, Literature, Poetry, Art: Build Your Library level 2. We are still way off track with level 1, but are working thr
  17. I assume that they think you are doing gluten free wrong because it is a very hard thing to do right. I hope you are able to determine the cause and cure her ills. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  18. There is not much he does independently (as far as school work). He does make breakfast while I tend to the animals, which makes my morning easier. But I'm fairly useless until at least my second cuppa, so we tend to start late. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  19. Last week, my SIL called in to work healthy. The owner and 2 of the ladies who work there were sick. It really should be the other way around. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  20. It's already lunch and the only schooly thing we've done is read aloud. I should teach the children. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
  21. I just realized I never updated Weapon X's age. I should do that and probably preemptively change the Captain's as well.
  22. I don't like mushrooms. I think they taste like fungus. The disobedient doggies stole the porkchops that I was thawing on the counter. I almost cried, but I didn't have time because I had to figure out something else for dinner. I made a ground beef with broccoli and rice concoction and topped it with cheese. It was pretty tasty, albeit simple.
  23. I want everything to get done without actually doing any of it. I just want the satisfaction of crossing things off my list paired with the satisfaction of lying about watching Netflix all day. I can't have both, and I am sad. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
