I have a confession.
I get that same fluttery feeling from appliance stores that most women get from Target. I browse countertop samples, light fixtures, closet systems, and cabinets for hours. I look at molding and backsplashes and flowers. Then, right before I leave I visit my most favorite section- the paint samples....and I collect about 100 paint chips. (I'm not even going to tell you how long those will stay in my the…Continue

Tonight I was browsing the Internet for some fun activities to keep my toddler entertained during the day so that he isn’t spending countless hours in front of the television. I was impressed with the amount of information that I was able to find when I searched for free preschool curriculum. In fact, I was somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of…Continue

Rookie Homeschooling a first year Preschooler
Three Lessons learned by a rookie homeschool teacher! It took a full school year to figure out what works best for me & my daughter.
Thank God for summer! Little does my daughter know but I have put her on a summer break from planned homeschooling. I need time to regroup and apply the lessons I learned to a more productive…

My problem lies in receiving. This does not apply to receiving support from my generous family, at that, I’m…Continue

Monday, was such a long day. We did our normal, all day therapy. We visited some friends, when Gabe said his stomach hurt. I asked if he had to go “Caca.” Of course he said No, and I proceeded to make him to at least sit on the toilet. I get him to go, he comes out saying he feels better, and goes back to playing. About 30mins later. He come out and says. “Mommy, I don’t feel soo good, my tummy hurts.” I look at him, and all color has gone from his face.
We left quickly. I was…Continue

The Naticaus, based out of Norfolk, Va.They retired the USS Wisconsin, and turned her into a 3story museum. Ranging from Ocean life, History of Jamestown to Naval History. We had such a wonderful time at the Nauticaus, in semi costume at that. Gabe so wanted to where his Liberty Spikes, but unfortunately, I was out of hair spray, so he had to settle for making a costume instead. He is such a character. I swear, he…Continue

I have been coming across blogs here and there about the stress of having their children home for the summer months. And I can’t help but wonder why. Summer is such a wonderful time of the year. There is so much to do. Homeschooling changes your view on things.

Last year we were un-schooling. We moved from public school to homeschool. Now we are going to Waldorf. I am thinking about going a Star Wars route for technology based sciences. We spend a lot of time at the Air & Space Museum Aquarium, the Nauticus. And they are in LOVE with Star Wars. I think it would be so much fun. Just thinking about all the possibilities. Plus taking them to Neckocon this year, Balticon would be freaking fantastic.

I have been dealing with this for at least 8 years or more, maybe 20. And I don’t even know where to start in regards to my feelings. It is a mix emotions or horror, self pity, self doubt, even hatred, loads of anger, yet a clear understanding of myself. I never lacked motivation, drive, or desire. But I have always lacked stamina. I will get this urgency to say rearrange the whole house in a day, but I am exhausted for a month. Holidays are the same way for me. And I am not talking just…Continue

I have been working hard to get myself organized. So far, I’ve gotten the kitchen(mostly done), the living room done, and our lil’ homeschool/therapy room. Actually the boys spend most of their day in here. We do all their therapy in this room, ALL their Legos, and of course our schooling.
Homeschooling can be very expense & so is Autism, diabetes, pacemaker, & hypothyroidism. Mix it all up, and we are constantly broke. We are constantly thinking out the box, and looking to…Continue
