Someone tell my stupid pork roast to hurry up and get done. I wanna watch Jeopardy. Hmph.

Hurry up pork roast! I need JJM to tell me how Jeopardy went. I hope it didn't get interrupted for her.

 

A hurry up and cook Booya so we can celebrate our wonderful WTM peeps.

 

I dedicate this Booya to Ellie and all of our veteran homeschoolers of ITT. :party:

Dd made a chicken stir fry tonight. It was very tasty. I was a bit shocked that she chose to add mushrooms and broccoli. :). There was also green beans in it.

We did history WTM style so we chose books from the TWTM list (including Speilvogel as a spine) and Great Courses lectures. We combined history and lit. and did them together.

It was definitely not Ellie's fault. It's obvious you were just trying to help.

Do you want to get picked? If so I will root for you getting picked. If not I will root for lots of plea bargains or other jurors.

Yes, I want to get picked. But not on Friday, if that means another week. My interest only extends so far.

I missed Jeopardy and the kerfluffle. Because music.

 

Tchaikovsky, in all his glory:

(Especially 17:20-19:20 one of the most glorious passages of music)

 

And then the lovely Nimrod:

I love Elgar.

 

G'night! Sweet dreams!

You can still join in the kerfluffle if you want. The more, the merrier! :001_tt2:

I have nothing intelligent to add. I can only think of things that would annoy people. And now I am worried about the spider that was on my arm and then on my comforter and I'm not sure if I killed it or if it escaped into my shoe. Or sheets. I feel spiders everywhere. 🕷

Susan! Don't say creepy things like that before bedtime!

 

(There. You started your own kerfluffle. )

Good Morning Tuesday!

 

Coffee.

 

I think we have an appointment or some kind of meet up with someone (2 are even school related) every day this week.  Except Friday.  And one or two things every night.  

 

More coffee....

I decided to leave my hair down today, and I realized it has gotten very long.

Lynn's week sounds exhausting but fun.

Spiders are of the devil.

I want a boxed curriculum that I can plan myself. I don't mind if I have to gather the parts. Anyone have any ideas? :D

I would have DH and high schooler decide that between the two of them.  One less task for me!  And more pertinent to the teacher and student.  Yup yup.

All parts of past years' curricula that aren't getting reused here get put with the output of the year's work in a file box.

 

As I gather things for an upcoming year they often get put in a box until I clear the appropriate shelf space.

 

Boxed curricula!

 

 

My cat declares that all you need are good empty boxes placed strategically throughout the house.

 

 

My youngest dear nephew declares anything in a box to be a present, which (of course) means it MUST be opened and removed from said box.

 

 

General concensus:  have plenty of boxes, place them strategically throughout the house, an make sure you have plenty of things to put in and take out of said boxes.

I had a great day yesterday and got a lot done, apparently a result of Second Coffee... and so I did not fall asleep for hours, and now I am a sleepy whitehawk on the very day when we need to get done early and go to activity group.

 

Did I mention we hardly ever get to activity group?? It starts at 11. :/ It's 8:52 and we're in PJs.

 

Update: We're dressed, but DS says he doesn't feel well. Couch day it is.

Did I ever tell you about the spider that nearly got a hummingbird on my front porch? Remind me not to tell you that story at bedtime. Did you know that spiders are a common hallucination associated with parasomnias?

I've been using boxed curricula all these years and never knew it! (Seems like it should be less work! ;) )

My idea of boxed curriculum is curriculum that I buy and put in a box until I'm ready to plan it. So that's every curriculum out there as far as I know, because even pre-planned curriculum has to be planned to account for sick days, breaks, the student's ability to progress, Mom's tolerance to the books and or material...

And y'all say that so much better than I do. :laugh:

Good Morning! Coffee is being consumed.

 

I have to say my patience is wearing thin with my mother. She will be here a year in May. I think I have done fairly well with adding another whole person to my household, and the upheaval it has caused to my family. I am about to blow up. That is what I do. I keep taking and doing and taking, and it builds and builds. Then I tell someone off real good. Grrr.

I greatly desire to call school on account of Mom's desire to take a nap in the sun with the old cat before goofing off the rest of the day.

Ugh!

 

Yes! My mom always had snakes. I have spiders, snakes, and sometimes floating ghost-men. I can usually talk myself out of the hallucinations now.

 

The worst is when I wake up and I am terrified because there is a strange man in my bed and I have to attempt to quietly sneak out of bed without waking him. I usually come out of it before getting to the door.

I gave myself a crash course on parasomnia yesterday because I my protagonist gets the screaming horrors with some of the things he sees. I'm lucky.

I used to have a few episodes like what you describe--mostly things walking out of my closets. Not so much now.

Well, your explanation is more concise than mine, so I wouldn't claim mine is better.  Just bigger.

I'm sorry your DS is feeling poorly.  I hope you all have a good couch day.  Some proactive couching will hopefully help stave off the rest of you from catching what he caught.

Hi!  Need more coffee!  Late night run to town (well, at 8 pm) meant I went to bed waaaaay past my bedtime!

 

Downside of living in small town:  Everything (well, except McD's and Taco Bell and the AFSA) is closed at 8!  No celebratory milkshake!  But the grocery store was still open and had Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream!  So we crashed Nana's house at almost 9 pm for a party!

 

It's gonna be a long day!  More coffee!!

Good morning. Ds meets with a guidance counselor today to pick next quarter's classes. He got overwhelmed and this is happening really late. This is going to play havoc with my schedule this morning.
