The kids went to Archery with Tony, and that is a real nice time for me, as it is the only time, that no one is asking me questions, and I have silence in the house. I have almost 2 hours. I am spoiled and it really helps my brain alot!!
Tuesday- The NaNOWriMo has invaded our school!! I taught a computer class today to all 4! Eric on my computer, Anna on the kid's puter, Abby on the school's laptop, and Gabe on my laptop. I had set up gmail accounts for each of them. They learned how to do their home pages and open email. Then late afternoon, our friends that Pastor in Oroville were in town, so we met to babble at Starbucks and I had a Iced Chai! Beyond marvelous!!! Then, we splurged and had Wendy's for dinner!! Needless to say, sleep came hard that night!!
Wednesday- My favorite day of the week, because we have bible studies. We also started a new Science for my younger 3, called Christian Kids do Biology. I was having a real problem finding Science that was going to teach Science not just theories. I want them to know the theories, but know that they are theories.
By Wednesday, I am usually brain tired, so I took a small power nap, when I woke up there was this package waiting for me!!
Isn't that cool? The green part is a custom's tag. This package was a few days ago in Hong Kong!! oh but the best was inside:
Ztamph studio @ SBG!.
Thursday morning, cold and dark. I was up way early, so thought I would get my beans cooking in the crock pot, I also had a small pork roast I wanted to put in the little crock pot. (see, homeschooling takes my brain and by Thursday, the easiest dinner needs to happen). I went into the laundry room to get the two crock pots. I got the big one and the cord seemed tangled, so I pulled. Wrong cord. I pulled the cord to the deep fryer. The one filled with oil.
I called my AWESOME hubby and left a message, please bring home some cat litter. He went to a janitorial supply and got the most wonderful greaser picker uppper.....and he cleaned it all up for me!!
Amazing, that all that was in that room!! It feels so much better and now nothing is on the floor!! I scrubbed the floor and it smells lovely.
My cat, Lady Fluffypants? She ignored me all afternoon. That is really what she does most days.
Oh wait, she is coming to me!! She loves me, she wants me to pet her and snuggle and love up on her!!
Erase that, she wants to show me her fluffy pants and ignore me. I laugh at your ignore Lady Fluffy Pants, as my laundry room had a french fry grease bath today, and I am made of tougher stuff.
Today, is Friday, and we don't do school on Friday, for me. I need the day. The boys slept til almost 10, the girls are up at the butt crack of dawn every day. I got up at 5am, and had great plans.
They came down too:
grocery shopping -Walmart and the local grocery store-new fryer!
Just a hint, towels smelling yucky from kitchen or moldy in bathroom, do a soak in vinegar, for an hour or so and then wash with regular detergent, dry without fabric softers. The towels are like brand new!! I washed all our towels today... they are so happy!
Off to make bacon, onion and mushroom swiss burgers for dinner! I hope your week was full also!!
