Good morning. It's cold. I'm tired of winter, but we ought to get a taste of spring today. The boy left his adult cactus plants out last night, but I think they will be fine. Cactus tend to be pretty hardy plants.

 

I'm out of likes. Story of my life.

You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Coming out of my long time lurking because I couldn't ignore this thread..  :leaving:

Happy Ignoriversary to all.

 

 

I met friends for coffee last night & it was lovely. Today

school

groceries

phone call

piano lesson

consignment sale

and why is naptime not a thing at my house ever ever? (Answer: my child's unfortunate tendency to take after his mother. :glare:  )

Because Dad knew I was going to order him some new pants (just one pair, to see if the new size fits!) he started giving away several pair of his current pants.  He lost track of how many of his pants were "out" (being altered by MIL, or being washed by me), and left himself only 4 pair or so, and it looks like he kept all of the stained ones.

 

I have now ordered Dad 3 pair of new pants, the new size in 3 different trousers.  Once I see them on him I'll order more of whichever he likes best.

 

I have reminded him that it was MIL, not a hired tailor or seamstress, that was working on ONE pair of his pants.

 

 

Some of his revised history I let him keep revised because those details don't really matter and he has them firmly stuck in his head that way.  Other details I correct as politicly as I can as needed.  Thankfully the bulk of people there understand.  

 

 

I need to schedule in desk time each week, or my new desk set-up is rapidly going to become buried.  I deployed another wall organizer, so now I have 9 pockets just for Dad Project stuff, 2 pockets for sibling stuff, and 3 pockets for me.  I MUST get the file drawers in order before these pockets fill!  (And these aren't even enough pockets....)

What's the best relatively inexpensive robot vacuum?

I have a Dibea 960(?) that I got on an Amazon lightning deal for $140. I really like him - he will run on schedule for 2-1/2 to 3 hours on one battery charge and (usually) end up back at his charging station. He will turn himselfh off if he sucks up a pencil. He's relatively quiet. We have hardwood and laminate floors with area rugs where he works - kitchen, dining room, living room, sometimes bedrooms and lots of long girls' hair, dust, and small pets to clean up after (rabbit fur, bird seed).

**However, a couple days ago he started wigging out and, despite all our trouble-shooting fixes, he is not working. It seems to be the sensors and he will only go backwards in circles until he gets stuck. So we are in the process of figuring out how to return/exchange him. He has a 12- month warranty.**

 

The botvac I really want is a Neato D80, but expensive.

I will speechify later.

 

Also, does anyone know anything about Brunswick, Maine?

 

I think it's a little cooler there than here.

We are the bestest of friends

And we’ll keep on ignoring-to the end

We are the bestest

We are the bestest

No time for meanness

Cuz we are the bestest on the net.

Plenty of blueberries in that neck of the woods.

 

It's a Brunswick Blueberry Booyah!

 

 

This is the thread that never ends,

It just goes on and on my friends.

People started posting not knowing what it was,

And they will keep on posting here forever just because...

 

This is the thread that never ends

You'd best come join it with your friends

'Cuz it will replace Facebook as the latest web-based craze

And everyone will post here instead for the rest of their days

 

This is the thread that's always there

They'll cheer you up so don't despair

The group is growing well as more people start checking in

And we'll keep sucking them in because our cheer is addictive

 

This is the thread that never ends

It's better than a Mercedes Benz

It helps with coffee withdrawal and other troubles, too

Eighteen hundred pages of friends all cheering for you

 

This thread keeps going on and on

with record-setting length and fun

It started twenty-four months ago from curiosity

and all the fun and frolic has shown this is the place to be

 

This is the thread that never ends...

And the place where one finds special friends,

the kind that have hearts that are strong and true

Yes, ITT ladies, I am talking to you!

 

This is the thread that never ends....

My children have started a band called American Band. They play music from all over the world to symbolize our countriy's varied backgrounds. The sentiment is beautiful but the application is horrid.

 

Alex can't say "I'm hungry" so he's got this new thing where he climbs into his chair and says "Not done." So cute.

My Zaycon chicken order came this am. It’s still “no added brine/salt/etc.†but my chicken breasts had more white striping than usual. White striping is fat in the muscle from chickens being overly fed too quickly—large farm dynamics. The farm listed was in Georgia, and the chickens were processed just five days ago, so still super fresh....but I can’t rave like I normally do. It’s still the best bulk chicken deal I know of, and I probably only lost one lb of meat with the trimming I did, but I thought I should disclose all since we were talking chicken recently.

 

I made 11 large meal packages for the freezer! My freezer is about 1/5 full, so I have a long way to go.

Dd went to the dentist this morning.  The dentist was getting on her for having weak enamel and was telling her to brush and floss more.  I had to stop him and tell him that it was not due to a lack of dental hygiene on her part (I know she does everything as she is supposed to on that).  It is a celiac thing.

I put the capybara book, a few biographies and 4 weather books including one in Spanish and one Magic School Bus on hold.

 

Mary has requested The Little Mermaid for Friday.

 

Whole30 soon! We're out of pasta, alcohol, bread and we don't do dairy. I need to finish the chocolate chips, corn chips, coffee creamer and buy some tea. And order a meat pack. And build a menu. Squeeeeeee!

I am tired, but I put together another query letter, and will assemble the next one to get them out this evening. I'm trying to get ahead on April's list, giving me all of April to focus on writing and not on selling my book. I need the break.

Juliet is going to the back door, pawing at the doggy doorbell, hopping through the door when I open it and waits expectantly for her treat.  Then I close the door and she sits there waiting for me to let her back in.  For her to do the whole thing over again.  Not how this is supposed to work!  But she has shown some fear of going out so I don't want to jinx it.  I did make sure that she had enough actual food so that she's not doing this as her lunch.  Now she ate some more lunch and has gone back to the door for another treat. . . .

 

 

(She's super skinny because she's high energy and she has too much puppy adhd to eat her food for too long before she's distracted so I'm not worried about overfeeding.)

She's smart though. Gaming the system like that.

I want a million dollars for curricula and some clones of my children to test them all on.

I only want $1,000 and another closet. You should be less greedy.  

 

I want a big comfy chair with an ottoman, a warm fuzzy blanket and a good book.

A papasan chair! :svengo:  I miss it so.

 

My kids are obsessing about the word “heinousâ€. I have no idea why. Unless it’s because it rhymes with some other word. They keep saying “heinous†and laughing.

It's a good word.
