Crap Paper 01/26/2008

Two new posts dealing with scrap paper.  Here and here.

There is an update, pictures, recipes, life changes, medical updates and other things to post in the near future.  I just need to find time in my day, week, month, life.  Lets just say it has be very busy around here.  Stay tuned.

Quick Update 01/15/2008

Just a quick note to say that Old Fashioned Education is working wonderfully so far.  Chip is complaining that there is no free reading time.  We tried to point out that when he gets his work done THAT is his free reading time.  My hope is he will start to embrace the living books and classics set forth in this curriculum.  I wish I had found this when we first started homeschooling, things would be VERY different now if I had. 

Tomorrow night Cool is working his second job so the kids and I are going to have a pancake picnic.  IF they get their work done and behave during the day we will watch Wife Swap.  If they don't we will probably read aloud.  Either way we win.

We decided the begining of the week to switch piano teachers.  I had to tell our teenage piano teacher that we were not coming back.  She was very gracious and even offered to talk to the other teacher about the kids progress.  I felt so bad.  I almost cried.  In the long run it will save me about 5 hours a week in sitting and excess running to and fro.  I know the kids LOVE their new teacher, I just hope the teacher/student relationship doesn't get between them.

All in all, besides being depressed about winter and worried about Cool, it has been a great start to the week.  I really want to get back on and blog more but where does the time come from?


Now, I thought I was the meanest mom on the planet living in Iowa.  At least that is what I have been told.   But this woman outshines me.  Check it out!  Meanest Mom on Planet

Our Wish To You 01/01/2008

A great friend of mine sent this to me and I thought I would share it all with you.

May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts.

May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of  $100 bills.

May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!

May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.

May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words ............

May 2008 be the best year of your life!!!
