Random ramblings

  1. Lowfat frozen yogurt isn't lowfat if you eat the whole half gallon.
  2. Moms should be issued tasers. And using them on any child seen after 9PM should be legal. Just sayin'
  3. No. I didn't really eat the whole half gallon...at least not in one night.
  4. Next week we have a field trip to Busch Gardens, a day at Disney, and writer's club...how much do you have to be home to count it as "home" schooling? 'Cause I'm fairly certain we aren't making our quota.
  5. At this point, I am resigning myself to the fact that I am raising the future work force of Micky D's. Maybe. Just maybe...if they are really lucky, they can work at Chick-fil-a. It might be a stretch.
  6. Did I mention my eldest daughter got herself kicked out of class at church tonight...and her dad is the teacher. Not. good.
  7. I am fighting some illness. Thank goodness for Nature's Sunshine and their immune boosting stuff or I'd really be sick. As it is, I'm on the "two naps a day" plan. Yep. Tons of schooling being done here.
  8. Actually, my eldest has completed his first week of Astronomy. We are lapbooking it too, so maybe tomorrow will be assembly day for the lapbook. It's supposed to be "make a model of the solar system" day, but we may just scrap that and take a field trip to Marie's house where some child of hers has already made one :-).
  9. I spilled worm pee on my sock today. Yep, you read that right. Bet not many other people can say THAT.
  10. When my blueberry bushes are amazing, you are going to wish you had worm pee too, LOL.
  11. They dropped the price of the house next door. To $49,000. Seriously. Three people have come to look at it this afternoon alone. I'm a LITTLE concerned about the kind of person who buys a $49,000 house. Just sayin'.
  12. Everyone who comes to look at the house takes oranges from the trees. EVERYONE. The laugh's on them. The oranges on those trees are SOUR. I try to warn them. It gives me an excuse to talk to them and give them the "yes, we live next door, have 4 kids, homeschool, have the world's craziest dog, a boatload of cats, and a yard that looks like the Adams family lives here" speech. Just want them to know what their $49,000 is buying.
  13. My house gets louder at night. My children retreat to their rooms (the boys to one room, the girls to another) and both commence with listening to Adventures in Odyssey at the loudest volume imaginable. It's hard to be mad when it's such good listening, but oiy! I wish they could fall asleep in silence.
  14. Actually, the 4 year old doesn't go in her room. She comes in ours and TALKS INCESSANTLY. Then,a round 10:30, she says she's just going to take a "nittle nap" and passes out...usually in my spot on the bed. Sadly, I'm so happy for the quiet that I just let her be. I'm glad we have comfortable couches.
  15. I could probably go on, but I like The Mentalist, and it comes on in 5 minutes.
Pin It!

I am glad that Debi posted that it made her laugh, because I laughed too. I hope you got to watch the Mentalist and had some quiet. :o)

You should post like this more often...you're funny!
My "normal" school week is shot for next week as well but we will get some good life learning in.

Ok, I just bought a blueberry bush and guess I need to know all about worm pee. Would bunny pee be just as good....I have an abundance of that.

So my kids will be working with yours. Good thing there are 2 Micky D's close by ;)
