Oof. Moral dilemma. I don't really want Slash to pass out in the AFSA...do I?

No. No, definitely not. Probably. 🤪

It's okay. My head doesn't work that well anyway.

It's a dingbat Slachey Booya!

I am amazed at how much you all shop at AFSA. I go maybe once a year or so. 

The AFSA and a gourmet grocery store (Kings) are the two stores closest/almost on my way to the science center.  If I need supplies for class I go to the Kings if its produce or other grocery that our AFSA doesn't have and I go to AFSA for anything else.  I actually do the majority of my shopping for classes through Amazon, but if I wait too long and it's last minute I run to the AFSA in the morning before class.

If I'm not in a rush (like trying to buy something on the way to class) I have a ton of options and prefer other places than the AFSA.    

Within 10 miles (which can be anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour to get to) I have about 10 grocery stores covering 4 or 5 different chains from discount to gourmet, 3 different Walmarts, 3 different Targets, at least two inside malls one typical (Sears, JCPenneys) one upscale (Nordstroms, Lord & Taylor, designer stores), about 1000 restaurants, specialty stores for just about anything you can think of, ethnic grocery stores for just about any nationality you can think of.    

I live in a very densely populated suburban area so options aren't really the problem.  Getting there in a timely manner can be a real problem at certain times of day.

We go to the AFSA maybe once a week (and a half or so). All our grocery shopping is done at Smith's (Kroger's) though because there is more variety and is actually cheaper. We'll pick up groceries at AFSA if it's needed right away because it's 5 minutes from the house. I also like to get toiletries and household products there. Smith's is only 7 minutes from the house, so it's still first choice. I'll go to Walgreens (3 minutes) for small quick trips, even though it's slightly more. 

I've used scan & go when I've had a couple of items that didn't need to be looked up. Most of the time, I have more than a couple. The time in line is about the same, so I might as well have a person. 😁

I maybe did things in the wrong order when writing a nine-page proposal before reading the email from VIP being asked to support it (who essentially declined).

At least a couple of pages were essentially copied from a previous document I'd created.

Six weeks until it's somebody else's problem.

I think my cellist/quartet leader is on drugs.  Or is very heavily medicated.  She seriously cannot make a single organized thought come out of her head.  And to top it off, she said she accidentally drank anti-freeze (or transmission fluid?) last night after cleaning out her car. What the carp?!?  

She wasn't always like this.  Last fall, the first couple weddings I played with her were well organized and smooth.  Now it's just a jumbled mess of her trying to figure out what we should play (while we're supposed to be playing) or arguing with her son (the violist, who is trying to help  her make a quick and logical decision) over what to do next.

The family is home.  I've had a whole half hour of quiet!

I remember when I was given a prescription narcotic, even the lowest dose prescribed had me feeble-brained. I literally had a brain-to-mouth disconnect. I'm pretty sure my thoughts were okay, but I could not make it come out of my mouth the way I wanted, or at all. I resorted to sitting silently in frustration, fuming. It was...hydrocodone for my migraines. I had to start taking just half and dealing with a level 5 (of 10) headache. I never drank anti-freeze, or any car fluids, however.

I'm pretty sure she just can't get her thoughts in line.  She speaks fine and in mostly complete sentences.  But for some reason she can't seem to organize 6 light classical pieces to play all in a row for a half hour.  And this is with a binder in front of her that has 20 light classics all in a row.  We can literally start at the first one, turn the page, play, turn the page, and play until the time is up.

 It would be like Gymnast planning to play all of her Twinkles in a recital and doing the first 2 and then suddenly deciding that she needs to stop and play Song of the Wind, and then maybe Minuet, but no how about Long, Long Ago or maybe Go Tell Aunt Rhody is better.  Do we have Bouree?  No that's in a different book.  Maybe she'll get back to the Twinkles, maybe not.  Well, now she can't because she got all her music mixed up in a pile on the floor.  Where's my diet Coke?  

Executive function.  That's what I'm thinking of.  It's like she's lost a good bit of that.  And she's been doing this kind of work a lot longer than I have, so it's not as though she doesn't know how.

Thanks for letting me vent.  It's been a long day, particularly since dd20 "reminded" us this morning that she had to go back to the university (2 hours away) this afternoon to move all her stuff out of the dorm and into a new one and we already had a full day of things to do on Very Little Sleep.  And dh was planning to go to the camping supply place to pick some things up and I didn't know and left him at the church to bring the youngers home from Sunday School.  And the small camping pillows are missing.  Why aren't they in the bin?  Arg.  Imma go to bed.

If you were 35 years old and had been trying to get pregnant for a year with no luck, would you be worried enough that something was wrong with you that you’d go see the doctor?

I really don’t want to go in just to be told that I’m old and fat and stressed and why do I even care bc I already have four kids but I can’t help worrying that something is wrong. I didn’t expect my body to poop out on me this early. 

I wouldn't be worried, but I would go see a doctor if I was still TTC.

If she’s been doing this a lot longer than you have, then I would wonder about dementia or early onset dementia or another health condition. I would not jump to accusing someone of taking drugs.

We had our little birthday party for DD2. It went well. Pizza for lunch and a yummy salad. I have an excellent salad dressing recipe that I like to use for special salads.  Let's see if I can remember it for you, Susan. I think you would like it.

1/3 C mayo, 2 Tbs. honey, 1 Tbs. white or rice vinegar, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. salt., 1 Tbs. water.  Whisk it all together. It's very yummy!

We had cake for dinner. Because I'm tired.

Morning.  It's Monday.   A crappy, super tired, why did I have to get out of bed Monday.

We had a huge storm come through last night.  Hours of torrential rain, thunder, lightening.  Trees out everywhere.  Nobody slept well.  Then power went out around midnight.  No power means no running water in my house.   We headed over to the science center early since there's power there (so wifi and water and flushing toilets) and since dh is still down with his mom (her kidneys seem to be failing from some of the medications but they can't stop them due to the issues they are taking care of) and it was already going to be an extra long day of the dog being home alone, I brought the dog with me to the science center.  So I'll get to walk him between every class and hope he doesn't pee anywhere in his excitement at all the people.   The good thing is all my classes today are older kids.  Youngest in any class is 10 1/2.  That will make it easier.

Oh yeah, and the kids and I have really really bad allergies or colds or who the heck knows what.  I'm holding out for allergies. but it's still miserable.

Also around midnight, oldest dd texted me because she hates her job, she's working 60-70 hours a week because they don't have enough help and she's the manager.  She can't get anyone interested in the job part time, corporate won't allow her to hire anyone full time and one of her managers below her is talking about quitting.  She'll need a job that pays the same but she has a degree, knows word and powerpoint, so she has other options since she can work a Monday to Friday full time schedule now since all her classes are in the evenings.   So, I told her to start looking and I'd send her some links.   And she's not sure she wants to continue with her degree.  She likes the subject and finds it interesting but she's not sure she wants to do it as a career long term.  She'd like something a little more creative.  So I told her to take the summer to look into her other interests and then decide when she has more information.  Main thing I told her is don't make any irreversible decisions until she's sure.  Thankfully that's not too hard with summer coming.

Good Morning!

Happy Monday!

I woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible migraine.  In a dream, I was scrolling through ITT posts.  For some reason, everything was all on one page, so I could just scroll and scroll and scroll.  I realized at some point that while I was pushing the down arrow on the keyboard to scroll, my head was starting to hurt (in my dream).  And the further I scrolled, the more it hurt.  The pain was getting unbearable and I was trying to let go of the keyboard.  I finally was able to remove my finger from the keyboard and when I did I woke up with one of the worst headaches I've ever had.

Dh brought me a Coke (caffeine) and a bowl of Cheetos (because I can't take meds on an empty stomach).  After my 2 am snack I took Tylenol and a shower and felt much, much better.

I overslept and now I have to try to get rolling on a Monday...

Good morning! I've missed you so, so much.

I wanted to update you about what's been happening here. I'm sorry I've been absent from all things for so long. It's been difficult to manage the daily life stuff, much less keeping in contact like I should.

Anyway, the update. DH and I are still together, and still trying to work our way to a healthy marriage. There's still a lot of issues, and there are still really hard times, but he had started seeing a therapist again and has at least acknowledged what he has been doing. I'm running a continuous risk assessment, and I'm much better educated about the resources available to me, but at this point I've decided it's better for my kids to be here, with me able to run interference, than to leave and risk custody being settled by the court that's friend to no one.

We're expecting our fifth child. This baby was unplanned and quite a surprise, but already very loved. I'm due in December. Our surprise puts my schooling off a year, but I have found a stable work from home job, ghostwriting romance novels. It's the paint by numbers of the writing world, but it helps my goals of getting out of debt and a savings built. As always, I'm hoping for the best but planning for the worst.

We've switched to My Father's World for school. The kids love it. I love not having to spend so much time planning/coordinating. I miss some of the creativity/flexibility if putting it together myself, but I recognize the good in just ticking down the boxes, and we still get to read lots of excellent books together. 

I think that's it. How are you doing? I've missed so much!

This week and next should be easy around here. I think we'll even be able to do a field trip to an aquarium on the coast. I have brownies in the oven right now.

[edpo] I finally found a biology text at the right level for next year; I'd bought Campbell's (used) to look at & love the way it uses evolution as a unifying thread, but it's too technical for DS right now. We'll use Holt's Modern Biology instead. [/edpo]

Growing big! Reader is 9 now, and entering tween territory. It's been a ride. Any advice/book recs?

Runner is asking for martial arts lessons, and I think the discipline will be really good for him. He's the most like his dad, personality-wise. (I'm also on the look out for a social skills/healthy relationships kind of curric, for him and the other kids.) He does really well when I keep him super physically active, less so when we're less active.

SuperDude had made huge strides with his speech. It's almost impossible to actually get special ed services in my county without taking the school district to court (and that's for an enrolled kid, much less a homeschooled one) and we can't afford private services, so I bought a book called Super Star Speech to use while I'm winding through red tape. It's written by a speech language pathologist for parents to use at home. 

Squishy is 2, and is everything that it implies. He's adorable and infuriating. And he gives the best kisses.

Good Afternoon!!!

I'm here!!!!! My stupid iPad doesn't let me log on to the Boards anymore, so I can't do my usual morning ritual of COFFEE!!!!! and morning check-in. I have to come to the regular computer in the office which is totally butt!!!!

I had a trans-"down there" ultrasound this morning, which was as exciting and enjoyable as it sounds.  Since I told my doctor I was not going to do the $10,000 D&C, "what is plan B?" she said to wait and do an ultrasound in 6 months, which is what I did today.  So, we will see what the results of that are.  Now, we are working on cleaning out the rooms for the carpet layers to come tomorrow. Bleh!!!!

Also, I forgot to add that Baby Cheeto is so named because in the 8 week ultrasound we had done, s/he looked just like a Cheeto, not because I'm craving Cheetos. I can't even remember the last time I had a Cheeto. My cravings so far have been any kind of fruit and this super yummy skillet bowl (hash browns, scrambled eggs, sausage pieces, and cheese, topped with sausage gravy) that my local diner makes. Maybe I should call him/her Baby Country Skillet?

I can't even remember the last time I had a Cheeto. My cravings so far have been any kind of fruit and this super yummy skillet bowl (hash browns, scrambled eggs, sausage pieces, and cheese, topped with sausage gravy) that my local diner makes. Maybe I should call him/her Baby Country Skillet? 

My eldest was nicknamed squishy because we watched Finding Nemo while I was pregnant and when Dory found the squishy I cried because I was hormonal.

Juliet is the most jaded suspicious 1 year old that I have ever met.  She thinks that everyone is a potential ax murderer.  Except for us, of course.  We are her favorite people and can do no wrong.
