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:

Saw that after Iposted. 😞. Sounds absolutely miserable. 

I've decided I'm not going to have this problem tomorrow, so that's good.

Good. 
 

One weird thing for me is that the food I craved always settled better for me than the logical food. So if I wanted taquitos they would settle better than yogurt even though that makes no sense.

Thanks for the welcome everyone! 

The Booya/h has mystified me, actually. At first I thought it was something you were awarded, but then it seemed like something you assign to your own posts. If you would be so kind as to give me a rundown of the rules of the Booya/h then I will certainly take a stand. 😉

I think she has already demonstrated her stand🤣. And she does it perfectly!

YES! Like I can only eat the things I want. Like a brat. But the things I usually want are not what I want right now. I'm extra brat right now.

Ok, so I have a really really important question. It pertains to waffles. Are they supposed to be floppy or stiff and crispy? I never ate waffles as a kid because I always thought you had to put maple syrup on them and I gag at maple. But now I realize that a smear of sour cream and fresh berries are right tasty. Anyhow, I have a Belgian waffle maker and I always made regular waffles with it and sometimes they turn out stiff and crispy and sometimes floppy. And then tonight I made an actual Belgian waffle recipe and they were very floppy. Did I not cook them long enough? They seemed to be done. I just don’t know.

In non-pregnancy, non-food, non-Booyah news:

I finished my Duolingo Spanish tree last week!

Entonces, puedo hablar en espanol mas mejor y necesito encontrar nuevos metodos para aprender.  (So then, I can speak Spanish much better and I need to find new ways of learning.)

I'm not fluent, and I still make a lot of mistakes, but it really did help a great deal to work through it.  Over 800 exercises.  It took almost exactly a year.

Not a brat. This is 1,000% a real thing.

I like the thick Belgian ones. Yes, they’re more floppy, maybe a tiny bit crispyon the very outside but definitely softinside. As long as they’re not soggy.

Hey PH and welcome!  Next summer dd13 and I will be hiking through the Philmont Scout Ranch. It’s so beautiful in New Mexico!  Well, I’ve never been, but have looked at it a lot because we were supposed to be in Gallup tonight on our way to hike Sedona and the Grand Canyon.

Good morning!  It’s The Queen’s favorite day!

The birds are out in full force.

One thing I can tell you for sure is that the ground is hard.  But our tent is super dry despite the rain. The girls’ tent not so much because in spire of my advice and the advice of 7000 people on Amazon, dh refused to spray waterproofing on it “because it will ruin a new, already waterproofed tent.” ?  Whatever.  He had to deal with putting up extra tarps and plastic over it.

Breakfast is scrambled eggs with cheese and muffins.

Coffee! Hot chocolate!

You've got better coordination than me. I'd fall off. Unless it has a handle? I've never used one.

Maybe I used the wrong word. It’s a big yoga ball. My feet stay on the ground

Morning. I checked in to see if there was baby, but apparently, it's a stubborn little tater tot.

More writing for me today and some housekeeping. Sad as it is, I think it's time for the down blanket to go in winter storage. Let the restless sleeping begin. A weighted blanket for a large bed is not in my budget. Other than that, not much happening here. We wrap up our writing cabin thing this week, which should be fun, and then it's on to June, quiet time, and seeing if I can't send out more queries without breaking into hives.

I'm team crispy waffles but Spud describes the perfect Belgian waffles.

They have to be crispy to handle tons of syrup without turning into goop, but if you are doing fruit and cream, they can be softer and still acceptable.

Good Morning!!!!

COFFEE!!!!~D

Day!!!

It Raines last night. Woke me up. Then, thanks to DH’s snoring, I didn’t really fall back to sleep.😴

Work and school today. 
 

I’m sorry no baby yet, Spuds. 
 

did you find a spider in your shoe, Susan??

I need some of Lynn’s COFFEE!!!~D. DH forgot to turn on the coffeemaker when he got up and mine is to ready yet.😩

Happy Monday.    Dh left for his mom's first thing this morning.  He took his car right after picking it up from the shop since it wouldn't start for me last weekend.   Guy at the shop couldn't find anything wrong.  Dh figures as long as he gets down there (which he can do without stopping), he can use his mom's car if he has to.  He didn't want to possibly leave me without a car.  I'm happy.  I hate driving his car (big a$$ Suburban that is 18 years old and moody). 

Meeting with dd to workout again today.    I got on the scale this morning and YIKES.  I really need to do something.  I'm being really good about workouts but I guess I need to work on the snacking.   Dh did leave me a big pot of oatmeal with chia seeds and flax seeds and berries for the week so breakfasts will be healthy.    I'm going to the store and getting some more veggies, and healthy easy things that I can cook.   I guess I probably should start doing some tracking too.  Blech.

I know you didn't ask for suggestions, lol, but what about getting a smaller weighted blanket for your side of the bed?  #friendsdon'tletfriendsmisssleep

I have a small blanket (not weighted) on my side of the bed. It's usually halfway in the floor by morning because DH is a cover thief and takes most of the larger blanket. So I don't know if it would work?

Good morning! 

Tea is in hand. Not helping yet. 

Slache, I hope you're feeling better and are able to eat today. Thanks for the green soup recipe, too. I added it to my "if I ever get to do the grocery shopping again" meal list. 

Spud, you could just threaten your tater tot with the chili, but not actuality eat it. I think that should do it. 

Susan, I'm not Critter, but that it gorgeous! Your camping trip sounds awesome! Maybe it's not as epic as the Grand Canyon, but it sounds wonderful to me. What time of year are you planning the Scout Ranch trip next year? It still gets cold here (snow even) until at least mid- June, so you may want to plan a little later in the year. I hear it's beautiful there, but I haven't been. 

Okay, time to start doing the things!

This is a good idea.  Dh got me a small weighted blanket a year or so ago and I really like it.  He, however, would not like it, so it just stays on my side of the bed.

I'm really craving a quiet walk to Eden Falls up around the Buffalo River, but that trail is heavily traveled, and it's kind of impossible to social distance on narrow little rock ledges. But hopefully we can go up to the river for a quiet day sometime.

Yep, I'm picturing the right thing, just have no idea how anyone uses it or stays on it so I've never had the guts to try. I remember after Youngest was born saying, "THAT must be what the big bouncy ball is for!" I bounced and bounced during every contraction to get through the pain and it took FOREVER to get all the knots out of my hair afterward.

I'm on Tater Tot lookout, too. Praying for you to have a safe and speedy delivery with as little pain as possible.

Thank you!

Honestly it’s pretty easy to stay on as long as you keep both feet on the floor and don’t let any kids come tackle you. The latter is the hard part! 😉

I'm seriously beginning to wonder if I should just piece together my own US history curriculum for next year. Looks easy enough. Just read about each event in chronological order and build a timeline. The following year we could learn about the states and landmarks in chronological order and add them to the same timeline along with memorizing states/capitals and presidents. Hmm.

That sounds like a good idea. You could have a big timeline, with lots of stuff on it.

Were your other babies late?

Mine were +7 days, +10 days, -5 days, on time, -1 day, and -15 days.

So, in general they started coming earlier.   I hope that you have your baby soon!

John was 4 days late and has been late ever since.
Mary came 3 days before a scheduled C/S so 10 days early.
Alex was cut out a week early but it took him 3 days to figure out what was going on.

Maybe I should go troll the sea for recommendations on a good spine or book set for events, people, and places. Later, though. Dinner's in the oven and I'm fighting a raging headache and nausea right now.

The Complete Book of United States History is nice for this purpose and his age.  Readings are short enough you can add to it without feeling like its overwhelming.

I think I’m going in the opposite direction. My first was about ten days early, second was sort of in dispute but prob a bit early, third three days early, fourth ten days late. 🤷‍♀️

We ate dinner outside. Then a storm came in. And we had dessert inside. So we didn’t get hailed on. Baby was concerned about her mourning dove friend.  
 

the End.

Sounds good to me.

FTR, it's what classroom teachers do.
