Hi! I missed a few pages, it seems. Was there anything important or ITT-shattering I should go back and read? No Theodore yet, Bookie? Or is it going to be Zach?

Let's see, yesterday Quiet Boy and I went and helped a friend clear out a bedroom for some guests plus a bit of clutter and a LOT of empty plastic water bottles. Her son is 16 and let's just say not nice/helpful at. all.! so having Quiet Boy there to do the heavy lifting was a blessing. I also ordered Quiet Boy his BJU dlo 8 and The Girl asked for science. So that is done. My free books post has just one item left I need someone to take-- the WriteShop Jr. E stuff.

Today was shopping at Costco. Captain decided he could take himself off to the Christmas trees alone! Yeah, chasing him down was fun. He has been dry today, though, even through nap time so that's going well. Bought our turkey for $0.99/lb. I'm going to debone it. I saw a video of how on the allrecipes app by Chef John. Truely fascinating. A new HEB opened down the street so Scotsman, ASD Boy, and I decided to go check it out. That place was packed! I've never been an HEB fan just cause of the layout, limited selection, and noise but this was unreal! Where did all these people shop before it opened??

I have a pumpkin pie baking for tomorrow and I'm beat now. I still need to clean bathrooms and sweep the kitchen floor. That may get put off until tomorrow after Church.

I like my potaoes as baby ones roasted in the oven covered in olive oil , salt and rosemary. Yum! None of mine will eat sweet potatoes anymore. Are sweet potatoes and yams the same thing?

Shall we call it a pumpkin pie and potato BOOYA?

And I must add the weather here has been perfect! Sunny but cool in the 60. The other day was a lovely grey and Scottish rain (light misty rain). I'm loving it! I dread next 'spring' and summer. I'm going to melt, y'all!

Dd13 has a campout tonight with her scout patrol and it's going to get down to 26 degrees.  Uff da.  I believe they will be in a barn so maybe that will help.  She has cold weather gear and about 26 layers of clothes, so she should be fine.  We have to leave in about 15 minutes.

Oh, it was so exciting at Publix this morning - I found a 27 AND a 28 pound turkey!  I majorly annoyed my shoulder getting them into the shopping cart.  Both of them are now in my deep freeze.  (I really really really like turkey leftovers! :laugh:)

I highly doubt it. We'll still be covered in snow. The first time I saw what comes AFTER the snow (mud), I cried. For some crazy reason, I expected there to be grass. It was almost as shocking as the first time I crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and realized there's no pavement... It's a see-through grate!

We got to San Antonio on February 28th. It's not very humid here and I'm thriving. Not the wind that tried to kill us though. But mostly I love the weather here.

Ds and I went to Dollar tree, tractor supply, and the AFSA.  Got the rest of the produce and snacks we needed, plus some ornaments for kids pictures tomorrow.  We were comety out of straws, so got those and freezer containers.  

Then we picked up supper so we wouldn't have to go out.  Yummy Mexican  food from one of the taquerias.  

I have out our bedding back on the bed and have the next two laundry loads processing, plus I made tea and cleaned out the microwave.

I'm not hungry yet, so I'm either going to read a book or watch a Christmas movie.

Right?! Those picture books always show grass peeping through the melted snow! We have lots of mud too. Sigh.

I can imagine myself having a panic attack trying to cross that bridge. "Try," I say. Is there a way around?

Next time I come by (maybe next summer?) you can invite me to one of those taquerias. I don't know if I really want to move to my parent's place if I have to make all my own good Mexican food...

Oh, turkey sounds so good...

We are just having leftovers tonight, whatever we can scrounge. I don't cook on Saturdays after work. I didn't plan to write today, but I'll probably squeeze in 1K or so and then do some reading. My sister bought me a book of short stories called Tabloid Dreams by Robert Olen Butler that I'm dying to dig into.

Let's see: I did a Walmart grocery pick up this morning. I think this will help cut our budget a bit. I'm keeping count, and will report back later. 

Dh's company had been cleaning out an estate, and he brought a lot of stuff from that house he thought I'd like. A LOT. In our 659 sq ft apartment. The apartment I'm trying to clean out. Anyway, I finally got through the stuff, picked out some stuff I liked (most of it was Christmas stuff), put aside things on a shelf and in plastic drawers I think I can sell, and took the rest of it to the Salvation Army thrift stores. There were a lot of thick gloves and mittens, and the SA will give those away to people who need them. 

From there, we went to the mercado to buy some atole and Gymnast's individual-sized chocolate coconut milk to take to school for lunch. We were supposed to stop by the herberia, but I forgot. Dh is coming down with something, so I need to figure out what herbs/teas I have so I can make a concoction.

I'm tired.

Tonight, I only teach two ESL classes: 5:30 and 8:10. What a bother. I also have a book challenge/launch meeting at 6:00.

I need to prepare for the online mom's conference coming up in January, too. Record the presentation, and turn that in along with some other swag bag stuff.

And I have recordings to do for the self-paced course I'm creating in Adelante Academy. I have a couple of beta students in there, which I did on purpose to push me to get it done...it's a spinoff of the book "28 Days to Family Language Learning." Anyone else want to beta test? Drop me message.

I just got approved to exhibit at the state homeschool conference again, so hopefully I'll get a spot to do a workshop as well again. They said they got good positive feedback on my workshop last time. 

Now, I'm just tired. Maybe I'll take a 20 minute nap. Maybe not...

Please help me here. What exactly does 1K mean? I know it's a size reference because I used to see it every time I downloaded a book to read. But how much does it reference? X amount of words? Y number of paragraphs? Z number of pages?

There were things I was going to answer, but I forgot what they were, I didn't quote them, and I'm far too lazy to scroll back up and find them. So I'll go with I love you all and I think you're fabulous.

Servant, 1K means one thousand words.

I did the grocery shopping, the grocery putting away, the dirty dish washing, the people feeding, and I cooked 12 lbs of hamburger/Italian sausage mix and 3 lbs of plain hamburger to stash in the freezer, alongside the ten lbs of chicken I have in there already. None of the ground meat is seasoned, and none of it has veggies in it, so I'll be chopping and packaging vegetables and the rest of the meat I bought tomorrow. Along with finally getting to those gross bathrooms. I think what I'm going to do there is clean the toilets myself (because that's the only place I use harsh chemicals in my bathrooms), then outsource the rest of the tasks to various kids and just call it good enough.

Current names being debated: Tevye, Malachi, Emmanuel, Isaac, and another one I can't remember right now because my brain is turning itself off. Middle name will be Duane or Laurence, because of family significance.

Imma go watch Elf with my kids now. I love Christmas movie season! We kicked it off Veteran's Day with White Christmas. Seemed appropriate. 😊

I just budgeted out all of our money to upcoming bills. Afterward we had no money left and I saw all of the bills coming forgetting that I had already budgeted for them and freaked out. Don't worried everyone! Crisis averted!

If you only type in "Renai," all you get is an anime character.

If you type in "Tam Renai," however, it's a little different...

I know if someone googles my full name, they will get 5 people in my general area close to my own age, and none of them are me.  

Dh and ds share a name and when we went and joined the gym, they already had someone in their computer with the same name.   Dh did say that he had to deny being about 12 other Mr. xxx x xxxx when he got our mortgage.  

I've never tried an image search.  There are one or two images of me on here so if someone wanted to search, they may be able to find one to search on.  Might come up with my Facebook page.  Although I've also linked my business website and that will definitely get you my full name.

Anyone get Disney+?  Everyone is talking about it like it's the most amazing thing ever.  I'm not sure I get it.  I like the Marvel movies.  We like the Disney movies.  But I still don't see why this was such a big deal everyone had to take off work and school and from life to sit and watch it. 

I also hate how you go to the website and they give very little information about what's included.  Not even with the hulu/ESPN package.  What is included??

We're thinking about it. We don't own movies. We'll do prime or Netflix when it's free and we currently get one free redbox a week but that will go away soon.

I believe everything owned by Disney. Every single thing without fail. I make no guarantees. It's what they were claiming a few months ago.

Watching Rogue One with Scotsman. It is his favorite Star Wars movie since the first trilogy. I have to agree. Anyway<<< kids in bed, house picked up, heating on. I'm tired.

Bookie, I vote either Malachi or Issac. Unless you are Jewish, Tevye might be a problem as an adult. Emmanuel is seriously long and a mouthful.

Issac Duane

Malachi Laurence
