I kicked it off on Sunday with 20 Things I Wish I'd Know about Homeschooling and then it officially got under way on Monday with Language Arts.
*2*It's been a cold (-30 below on Monday), windy, long week. Car problems 2 days in a row, both entailing people waiting on rescue in vehicles that weren't going anywhere in very, very cold weather. The second problem, missing the road by 6", totaled the car. Not good on so many levels.
*3*School this week. Well, if you read my post from yesterday, Step it Up, don't take it personally, (unless it applies, of course, and/or is helpful) but it was something I needed to hear.
This week we are just finishing up odds and ends and math. Cub is 2 pages away from being done with Algebra. I and Flower is almost done with Grammar and a bunch of other work-booky things. Meaning I need to order some things, including some non-workbooky things, right?
I've had 4 friends say to me that they can't believe I'm selling something and what is all of the coffee/tea chatter about. Yes, it's really me. Yes, we are really promoting Organo Gold Coffee; which means coffee, tea, and a host of other good-for-you items you'll wish you knew about long ago. It's all been part of the grand plan to get Dr. Dh to quit his yearly winter pneumonia habit and to stop the ugly cycle I've been on of one good, ineffective med leads to another. So far, so good. I'm med-free in 6 months, including one I've been on for 20 years. My hair is thicker than ever, my nails stronger than ever and my joints are not snap, crackle and popping every time I move. WOOT! So, yeah. I LOVE sharing good things with the people in my life.
You'll be hearing more from me about the health changes and benefits we've experienced. This stuff is good.
And hey, I'm crunchy to the core. The heart of Organo Gold is Ganoderma, which has been used for years in alternative medicine. So, see this fits like a glove.
Coffee that's better than St*rbucks AND health, 1/3 the cost and delivered to your door? Bring it.
*5*Flower is reading The Samurai's Tale. She keeps asking things like, "What is a mistress" and "Why did they kill all of the babies and teenagers and leave this one kid", etc. Cub picked the book out for her- geez.
He is almost over his Lawhead kick, having read 6 since mid-December but I'd really like him to read Byzantium before he is through. If you want great, well-researched history and a terrific story, pick Lawhead. I have read no books for weeks. Yeah, that's weird.
I'm going to be doing some guest blogging about Rural Homeschooling, so if you have any thoughts, hints, tips, ideas or sanity savers about living rural while homeschooling, please comment and tell me what you are thinking.
I'm on google+ and I would love to have you add me to your circles. This is another new thing for me- it will get easier, I know it, right? Any google+ tips, please comment and help a girl out!
Am I the only one who ever feels like this?
How was your week?
