Good morning!  Stupid internet went out, I'm so tired of our internet.  Nothing much today, need to get gas and food for remainder of week,got laundry done and boys got their chores done.  My mom had to go to ER again last night, I'm thankful it was only an upset stomach or so they said, the meds they gave her are not working as usual.  I'm frustrated and she's frustrated, we're all anxious because she's constantly sick and losing weight and she's had every test known to man run on her and they can't find anything.  I'm hoping they get it sorted out soon because her quality of life is not very good right now and I'd love for her to get to have some enjoyment.

I’m sorry, Mama25angels  (do we have a nickname for you?? ). I hope they can find some answers for her.

Well, maybe not an excuse, especially if her editor beat her up over it.

Not the editor--actually both editors said my MS was about the cleanest thing they had ever seen. Fellow writer. It's okay--she was reading a new draft of something that didn't work well, and I've already rewritten it.

I think she means that editors will have so many revision suggestions that it's not worth worrying about commas until the end when the words and sentences are closer to final form.  So, it's more efficient than artistic.  (Critter, correct me if I'm wrong.)

That's it.

I don't have boxes coming either. Maybe in August. Right now I just need to see what I've got and make it work. 

I am back from art. Painted a cheerful sunflower today, but it's all yellow right now, and I will layer and glaze more colors on as it progresses. Patience. I'm so tired I want to go back to bed, but I have a little too much work today to nap. Plus the nap would ruin my bedtime, and I've got an early start tomorrow and a long day.

Eat the cake Krissi. I've heard calories don't count if you cooked it yourself because you expended calories to make it, or something like that.

I hope Dh can drive us all to the city to get the car. Maybe I'll let him sell my car and he can just drive it in and use it as a trade in. He's been wanting to sell my car anyway because it's on its last legs...that is a brilliant idea. I've been stalling on getting myself a new car because I feel badly for putting the poor van off to the lot. It's like taking an animal to the pound- will they squish him because he's old?? And I don't like paying more for things I already have, but I'd almost rather buy a new car than drive in the city.

We saw raccoons this morning. A mother and a kit were playing in the road when we went by. Must be that time of year for the young to be out of the den for the first time.

Not at all in the mood to teach this Japanese lesson that's starting in the next 5 minutes. The student is... disagreeable a lot of the time, gets very defensive and tries to blame me for being unclear about the instructions when she hasn't done her homework, and generally makes the hour per day an unpleasant one. Ah well. I got a self-help email in my inbox today that informed me that if I just change the words "have to" to "get to" it will totally change my attitude. I "get to" teach this disagreeable person Japanese ?

That is a pretty cool idea!  I hope she's better today so that you won't "get to" smack her during the lesson, only in your head of course!

Yeah, that’s it. And since there are Blueberries in the cake and blueberries have antioxidants, which are very good for you, it cross cancels out the sugar calories.

I wasn't going to say anything, but I have a box on the way too.  But it's not terribly exciting - mostly stuff needed for outsourced classes.

I partly want to go see if the baby birdie is still in the back yard.....  and I partly don't.  Does anyone want to check my back yard for me?  I'll be sad if it's gone and sadder if it's still there.

The only box I'm waiting for is trash bags. I did get to send a box (not trash bags! clothes) to somebody else, though, and that's fun.

Sigh!!!!!

Warning! Edpo! 

Double warning!!! Rambling Whiny EdPo!!!

I am just...… blah! We're doing this Enrichment Academy thing with our new Charter School and it's Wednesday mornings.  But I'm trying to figure out when we'll get everything done. And it's not working. I don't even know what they'll be doing at the Enrichment Academy. It just sounded like a good idea and I would like DS2 to be able to get used to being in a classroom situation in case he goes to Christian HS next year. But I don't even know if he'll be going. He struggles so much and he's so behind. But.... around here, there's nothing for homeschooled high-schoolers. They all go to the Christian HS. Sometimes, I really just want to move to the Big City. They have a lot of things for homeschooled high schoolers there and we'd be closer to DH's new job. But, we are finally getting settled into our Church here and our kids would not do well if we changed churches. It took them so long to get adjusted to where we are now.

(((Krissi)))  It's hard when you're waiting on more information, but you kinda need it now.  I'm hoping the enrichment academy will fulfill a need you have with your ds and that it will give you peace about the direction your heading.  ❤️

We have all kinds of raccoons in our yard at night. Our stupid cat actually chased one off the other night. At least she thought she did. I think the real reason the raccoon left was that DH and I were standing there yelling at it. The thing was like 3 times or more the size of our cat and she was chasing him around the yard.

 

Your cat sounds brave!

Are racoons a major pest? I have never seen one of course, but they look sort of cute!
