ASL (American Sign Language)

I have always been interested in ASL! I find it fascinating! In highschool there was a deaf boy that would be moving up from middle school to the building with upper grades. I did not know how much I would be able to talk to him and doubted that we would have any classes together since I was in a higher grade, but I wanted to be able to. I talked to his interpreter that was starting an ASL class for the teachers so that they could learn to communicate with him about me coming to the class. She thought about it and since I was a respectful/good student I was allowed. I went to a couple of classes, but for some reason stopped. I don’t remember the details as to why. Whether it be that I was busy with senior year stuff or that the classes stopped I do not recall. When I became a mother I had seen videos about baby signs and thought that this would be very good for our little family because my husband didn’t get a whole lot of time with our daughter and did not interpret her cries and cues as easily as I did. Baby Signs are basically watered down ASL. Bug soon learned all of the baby signs and needed more so we started ASL. She new about 60 signs before she could talk. After learning to talk she/we used the signs less and less and remember only a little. I have been trying to learn again on and off for years, and it is difficult. Although it did come in handy with my daughter when I had laryngitis for more than a week. Anyway, earlier this year I met a man that is deaf and works at a local bookstore. I would say he is probably in his 50’s but I could not say for sure. He is very nice and I try to speak to him in ASL, but I forget as soon as I start. Trying to speak with an adult with full thoughts is a lot different than asking one word questions and answers to a toddler. I saw him again the other day and tried again. I have only seen him max of 3 times. I wanted to say more to him, but lost all train of thought. I could not remember the basic signs…..I felt a bit silly, but he knew I was trying. I did manage to say “Hi, friend!” and finger spelled his name to Bug.I tried to tell him that it was “good to see you”, but only signed “see you”. I was speaking at the same time and I am fairly sure that he reads lips so I tried to keep eye contact while speaking. I got nervous and said that I was trying to remember and he signed “learning sign language” to me. I really get over excited when I see him and think ‘Now I can practice!’ but I feel like I make a fool of myself. I have to remember that he understands that I am trying and he enjoys the interaction as much as I do.  Not many people sign and that is the way he speaks, having someone new to sign to that is taking the time to learn and be able to speak with him is heartwarming. I remember so many signs after I flub up the actual conversation….sigh…I will get there eventually. I guess it is time for more “Signing Time” on Netflix. Tips I do know about speaking ASL:

  • Keep a steady hand especially while finger spelling,
  • Keep eye contact,
  • use body language

Finally time with my loves…

If you read my latest posts you will know that my hubby had worked a crazy amount of hours for two weeks and we had to squeeze in Mother’s Day. Well, it turned out that he worked so many hours that his boss let him take the next week off because the hours overlapped so much. The week that he was at home with me just happened to start off with our 12 year wedding anniversary. To say that I seriously enjoyed having my hubby home for more than a week is a complete understatement.

We did so much and chilled so much that the days ran into each other and I forget some of what we did. Hitting the highlights for you…We went for walks with our daughter (trying to not get caught in her webs of friends around each corner that were playing outside.) We went out to eat quite often because we were out doing things and frankly I needed the break from the kitchen. He also cooked a few times and grilled for us at the lake. Now that I have mentioned it we spent a whole day at “our spot” on the lake. We strung hammocks, read books, scootered around, walked, talked, played in the sand (It was so relaxing….)

There were many sessions of Dungeons and Dragons (4 nights I think) where we kicked some major butt and even started a war that saved a whole town from certain destruction by goblins, hobgoblins, orcs, trolls, and bugbears. I think only one person in our party had any loss of hit points (you  D&D’ers will know what I am talking about).

The plants were on their last leg (not my Mother’s Day plant, but that sad aloe vera (fyi my spell check keeps telling me every way that I spell this plant name is wrong). So we went and bought MANY bags of potting soil and quite a few pots to replant the aloe in. Also a huge pot because on one of our walks we found a giant wild rose plant that we got cuttings from. They did not take root so now we have to buy a plant for the huge pot and homemade trellis. There are now five pots of aloe vera, my Mother’s Day plants, and the sad rose cuttings. They look bad but we did clear out a nice spot in the existing garden for them to sit. It looks a whole lot better.

We decided to go to a near by town that is a national park and hang out. This is what we would do while dating. It was really the only place to go. Anyway, we thought it would be interesting to have an Anthony Bourdain kind of adventure. We walked around seeing the interesting things, eating at new places, snacking here and there when we got hungry. We went to a pub (family friendly, so don’t freak out) they do serve different types of beers and brews made in house, but they also serve foods, nonalcoholic drinks (rootbeer made in house), and gelato. It is a nice place to chill. It is open and airy with lots of windows to watch the tourist traffic. Later on we went to a new coffee shop that was just around the corner, Bug got a tea that was so delicious! My hubby and I got coffee, but it was not to our taste we were forcing ourselves to drink it. It was too strong and fancy for us, but the atmosphere was quite nice. We were jealous of her tea….

Oh, I almost forgot about these parts…We went walking though art galleries and found one that featured local artists. There they had jewelery that I was drooling over and it was priced really well. Seeing the good price for necklace, earrings, and bracelet my hubby bought it for me. Aww shucks! We also went to the hat shop that he likes to buy from. He knew that I have been looking for a great hat and suggested that I take a look in there. I did find one! I really didn’t want to pay a whole lot for a hat but after my Renfaire experience with the rain I figured that a good one would hold up better. I love my new beautiful straw fedora!!!!!! My hubby spoiled me!!!!

We never know what we are going to find in this area so it is usually a treat! We came across a musician in the park and sat there listening until Bug couldn’t be still anymore and our butts were numb.

We did do school work in the mornings all week. I did find some used curriculum while I was out one day, 7 books for $10 isn’t bad! I got stuff that I can use finishing up this school year (2 months left June and July), and also for next school year.  We had a great week and I know that I didn’t write about every detail. I hated sending my honey back to work yesterday…..He is my heart and I love when we actually get time to reconnect.

We’ve happily made it this far!

Today is mine and my husband’s 12 Year Wedding Anniversary!

We have made it this far and I love him to bits! He is my best friend!

I am so happy that we chose each other and for as hard as it was we fought to

be together and we are loving and living this life together.

We have both changed a whole lot but have never grown apart.

We will always happily reel us back in if we lose connection.

 Together! Forever and Always my Love!

My little doll loves to play dress up. She always has! She now watches Youtube tutorials and turns herself into fantastical creatures and also is learning how to wear normal makeup without over doing it. I do tell her that if I can see her makeup she is not wearing it out. She is doing quite well! This is her makeup of an ocelot from Minecraft. Cuteness!!!!

I finally got to spend time with my loves for Mother’s Day!

Featured image

My hubby has had to work a whole lot recently. I am used to him working five days a week (on a schedule that is not ideal) and then off on the weekends. For two weeks he had been working all kinds of crazy hours filling in for those who work above and below him, going to meetings, and training sessions. He was tired and all stressed leading to us all being tired and stressed at home.  Breathe…..we are thankful that he has a good job, but it can be a bit much at times. His crazy work schedule finally ended the Friday of Mother’s Day weekend. So we went to have some fun!!!!

Celebrating Mother’s Day (I did contact my mommas, one anyway the other I couldn’t get in touch with). Anyway, I was asked what I wanted to do. My hubby said that he was thinking of getting me a scooter to help me keep up with Bug on our “walks” “together”. I have been talking about getting one since we got Bug’s.   I also wanted a nice plant for the front porch (especially since my aloe plant has seen better days and needs to be repotted.

Finally getting time together and out of the house. We knew there would be some rain rolling in and we should bypass the real storm….Should but didn’t. We went to Lowe’s to hunt down the perfect plant. Oh my gosh the heavens opened up and it looked like we were in a tropical storm in the  large tropical plants section. Rain beating the glass, palm leaves swaying and slapping. We could barely hear over the noise of it all. So it was quite a sight of us going in and out of the awning covered areas with wind and rain blowing in on us. We did select a nice plant with dusty miller leaves and celosia . We had no other option than to wait out the rain in Lowe’s. At the beginning I was not thrilled about spending my Mother’s Day outing looking around in a hardware store. Especially since the hubby went strait to the drills and things. Finally we wondered around enough to find the doors, flooring, windows, and things that we could discuss our likes and dislikes about. My hubby and I both have art backgrounds and similar taste. So when Bug noticed that we were saying the same things about which thing we liked best and what colors would go well with what flooring; it all became a game to her. After discussing somewhere around the 11th wooden floor sample our brains were mush, and our daughter realized that mommy and daddy do work quite well together. Thankfully, when we do purchase a home of our own and quit this renting business decorating will be fun and won’t end in splitsville.

The storm blew over and we could finally move on. We decided to find a nice place to eat, but our first stop was packed to overflowing NEXT we ended up at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants (even though we eat these types of meals at home often). There was live music that only became more entertaining with the margarita that I was sipping through dinner. We laughed and talked and saw a baby booty shakin’ to the music. It was so fun! Our daughter finally brought her money with her and has been wanting to go to Books-A-Million for a while. Why not! So we went and I actually found the graphic novels I had been looking for. Ms. Marvel (trade paperbacks 1-5, 6-11 and Lumberjanes. We did make it home eventually because another section of the storm came through and it was hard to drive. I am very thankful for our nice truck that can handle driving in storms. Silver is good to us (yes, our truck is named, Silver, like the Lone Ranger’s horse) Our previous vehicle although pretty to look at had issues that made it dangerous to drive. So when we got the truck we could go AWAY easier. Therefore, Hi Ho Silver AWAY!!!!!

Anyway, my brain went off on a bit of a tangent. For the rest of Mother’s Day weekend we played games and ordered pizza, chilled out and just were together……finally.

Scooter Weather

It is a beautiful spring day and I am soaking up the shade while my kiddo with her neighborhood friends are practically riding ruts in the road by our house.

I love to see them having fun, but all thses cars are scaring me. Seriously since we have been out here this one lady has driven by about 5 times. Choose another block would ya!?

There have been crashes and near misses between kids but thank goodness no blood so far. They’ve gotten all hot and sweaty, so bringing out a pitcher of ice water for the crew was just the thing. Then eventually popcicles.

Creative minds at work here people!!!! We have kids using two scooters at once, some are police and some are rebels. We’ve got races and silly voices. Homeschoolers and public schoolers. Yep, I have stuff to do but so what! My kid is making memories and so am I!

Homeschool Evaluation

Every year about this time I get the evaluation bug. I really look at what is working and what isn’t, then start planning for the next school year (even though we school year round).

For my benefit only, I have started percentage grading my daughter’s work (4th grade). It is taking a bit of time because I have not separated her work into binders in FOREVER!!!!!! It took parts of two days to do that. I have also gone through and graded each page in two of seven binders and averaged the scores. Subjects covered and separated:  Math, spelling skills, reading skills, writing, history, and science. So far I have an average year to date score for her Reading skills and spelling. I have a long way to go because I haven’t even graded all of the others. sigh……(remember I usually evaluate as we go…without grades…yeah……there is a lot of work to grade….dating from 8-18-14 to 4-30-15)

My daughter seemed pretty preoccupied about the “grade” for her work thus far, but I would not tell her. I showed the percentage to her daddy for his info. We do not want her focused on a grade score just to up the number. We do want to be able to understand if she is progressing or not, and to see what needs improvement.

What started all of this new way of thinking was the download of a homeschool grading app that I purchased months ago. I have been waiting on it to install. I had pretty much given up on it along with a couple of games and an ebook. It finally decided to work along with the book. It is a bit more specific than I would like. I am a fly by the seat of my pants, eclectic kind of teacher. I like to write things down, you know all tangible and stuff. I go with the flow and don’t plan too far ahead. So going it old school seemed less stressful. By old school I mean: grading and averaging on paper, then calling it good. I am considering a grid type grading log, but I just can’t justify getting a whole book for one kid. I’ll have to see what I can find online.

Anyway, it was a nice day out and we took a walk as a family. Technically Bug was scooting on Creeper way ahead while her daddy and I talked school. Bug wants to be a game designer and Youtuber. She is 8 1/2 and really likes these things. She rushes through her school work to get back to the things she is more interested in like makeup, games,youtube, and friends. We are trying to figure out how to work more computer work into her routine or focus specific days for increasing her knowledge of computer coding and such.  At this point it is all thinking and discussion.

This is a fun yet crazy time as a homeschooler, and it happens every Spring!!!

Tis the season of boo-boos

So now that the temperature is pleasantly warm and the rain comes and goes, it is only the beginning of the season of boo-boos. All the scrapes and bruises that come with an abundance of outside fun and now older kids. Since my baby is well,no longer a baby, it is time for mom and dad to learn to let go a bit. We really watch her like a hawk! I wouldn’t got so far as to say that we are being helicopter parents, but hanging out on the landing pad would be a fair description.

She is getting older and needs time with friends. Luckily we have a few neighbors with kids around her age.  They like to ride bikes and scooters right in front of our houses (the neighbor kids, not our kid…). Well, we are pretty protective. (me more than daddy) Anyway, we finally decided to let her take her skateboard to scoot around with them (It’s slower than the bike so I don’t get whiplash trying to watch her from the windows).

She is not that great on her skateboard so she and another little girl would take turns with the other kids’ scooters. This day the little girl slipped on the scooter in the loose rocks and came to me for bandaging. I got her cleaned up and promptly texted her mother an FYI text. Her mother was already on her way to get her daughter, but got here a little faster in the car instead of walking like normal.

The next day, I told her daddy while we were out that I saw some Razor scooters on sale at Wal-Mart and we went to take a look. Our daughter would not have the one on sale because it was very pink with tassels. The cheapest of the other colors was only $8 more so we decided to get her one. The new scooter is now lovingly named, Creeper, because it is Creeper green. <My little Minecraft lover….After buying the creeper green scooter we took her to a park to let her try it out in the open parking area. She loved it and rode and rode; then crashed (blamed on a thick cigarette butt on the sidewalk). She was a little scraped but not bad enough to stop riding of course. She rode until nearly dark there, and when we got home she rode it in the house scaring the dog.

Scooter Day Two: Most of the afternoon she raced with the neighborhood boys (all around her age of course). There were kids on feet, bicycle, and scooters. They were having tons of fun and apparently crashed a few times that I did not see. She was so proud of herself for doing so well. “Mom, I did good! I only crashed five times!!!” All while blood was running down the front of her leg. By this time we are really trying to get Bug to wear pants while riding on her scooter because she now has two days of scrapes and bruises from both knees down. As always she informed us that jeans are too hot to play in. Again off to the bath to clean boo-boos and get all the sweat and dirt off before bed. I was about to tuck her in and read from our Harry Potter book (now only half a chapter left) and noticed swollen bruised ankles, scraped legs, and deeply scraped knees. Oh for goodness sakes, wear some pants!!!!! And we have homeschool club tomorrow. I hope people don’t think I beat her (I do tell her when I am frustrated with her that I will beat her with a wet spaghetti noodle.)

Scooter Day Three: Her daddy put on a movie that she wanted to watch with us. While watching the movie she got her makeup out and turned herself into Harley Quinn, and then as usual she was off to her bedroom talking to the neighbor boys through the window. She soon wanted to go outside and play with them but had not spent any time with daddy before work. She finally finished watching the movie with us and thought that it was quite funny. We did eventually let her go outside to ride scooters with the boys. (she was still wearing the character makeup) They like to ride those things fast, but at least they have gotten really good at watching for cars and getting over to the side until it passes. I had just gone to check on Bug after a crash and I went back inside staying close to the door and/or window to keep an eye on them like always. Then I heard one of the boys ask Bug “Do we need to get your mom?” I flew out the door not knowing what I would find. The oldest boy (11) was walking toward me with his arm hanging limp. He turned a bit with more an I saw more blood than I have seen all week coming from his elbow. I rush in to get a cloth to apply pressure and asked him what he hit it on. He said, “The road” I sent his younger bother to get their mom while I was getting the blood to stop. I sent my husband to get a bandage or something. I had just changed from the cloth to the now much cleaner paper towel when his mother came up. I told her he scarped it really good and probably wouldn’t need stitches. I am still a bit shaken from all of these kids getting hurt riding so fast on the road and concrete. My hubby looked at our daughter’s legs and laid down the law about wearing jeans to ride in and also being more careful. If they keep getting hurt playing around our house, even if they are not technically at our house, parents may not want(********I just had to stop typing to bandage another scrape from riding that scooter in the house******) their children over here thinking that we don’t watch them. In fact I drive myself crazy watching them. They will always see me at the window or door making sure they are okay especially when they are riding on the street.

And it is only spring……..sigh……

Where is my mind?

Today has been one of those days where my brain is so full and unfocused. I feel that if one more distraction, mood swing, or accident comes flying my way that the makings of my brain will burst like particles in space. I would need to retrieve them in maddening chaos, but at the same time I feel that letting them float away would keep me sane.

Sure, I thought after those past five days of crazy, that this school week would be mellow and would flow without incident. We took yesterday as a Home Economics day to get back on track around the house. My daughter was zipping through the list of chores like they were nothing. I did not bother her with nit picky instructions and micro managing. For goodness sakes I had my own cleaning sections to take care of. I eventually looked over her areas to clean and know in my mind that she did something. I saw her doing something. Well it just so happened that she did somethings that weren’t the main somethings; only cleaning parts that are rarely looked at. I told her that when she cleaned it not only had to smell good, but actually look like something has been done. Let it go….let it go…Setting that aside for a more structured cleaning tutorial for my helper in training….

School….today our first day back to book work. I wasn’t going to go real easy on her but I wasn’t going to push her to a breaking point either or so I thought. Honestly, I think I made it to a breaking point first. I planned two math worksheets adding to our new skill of working with decimals. A little instruction on writing standard numbers with decimals into expanded form, fraction form (which she learned at the end of last week), and then expanded form to standard with decimals. These words came out of her mouth, ” These are fun and so easy! I like these!” Now keep that in mind while we move on to another subject since she can obviously do these on her own… I read to her about the major rivers around the world and had instructed her before hand to pay close attention to the importance of rivers because she would be writing a paragraph about it. Of course there is grumbling because she hates to write, but I can proudly say that she knows the layout of a basic 5 sentence paragraph. Back to math now that we have painstakingly found countries and rivers on maps, globes, and satellite images online.
Math, so far so good until there is a slight bump in the road. Not a hill or mountain, more like a pebble. You see this is where I see my childhood self in her…hold on to your seats…. I look at her from a distance to see that within seconds she has pushed herself from her desk, is red faced, shaking, and shutting down. Minor changes in the system bring fear and mental block confusion. I understand this and have worked through this myself. I have to snap her out of it. As a baby I would blow a quick puff of air in her face to get her focus somewhere else, now it takes a sharp toned “stop, listen” to get her to snap out of it enough to start over with gentle instruction. The pebble was that within the expanded form there was no tenths place shown, but there was hundredths and she did not know how to write it. Simple fix we just needed that place holder 0. We get that down and crisis averted. Although during the meltdown process she said to me “I don’t like this.This isn’t fun!” I reminded her that just a few minutes ago she said that it was fun and easy. She seriously said to me “No! I did not you are just saying that to make me feel better!” I go back to my kitchen duties of starting dinner early because it has to cook for about 2 hours when a whole glass of water is spilled on both worksheets, quickly spreading to all of the books, and creeping toward the computer. Freak out mode! She is trying to get the massive stack of curriculum up and onto the floor but it is too heavy. So of course I take over. All the time she is saying “I am so sorry….” I am frantically getting stuff off of the table and grab the closest towel and instruct her to get the trashcan so I can redirect the water. I finally get it all dry except for her worksheets that we just had the recent battle over. There us no other way to remedy this situation other than to reprint to worksheets. No big deal, this shouldn’t take very long…well, I try to print but nothing is happening. I go through and check all the settings, cancel all the documents to be printed except one. Still nothing happens! Finally, after turning the printer off/on, checking the cords, turning the computer off/on we have worksheets that I need to rewrite the examples and instructions on. I eventually get Bug back in to do her work (which I pulled her away from her comic book writing to do), but she doesn’t want to do it all. I give just a little and let her do her math and then take a break knowing that I want that paragraph about rivers when school starts tomorrow. Negotiations about due date and time set in until I have to put my foot down. Bug takes her break and wonders outside and I sit trying to meditate into calm listening to the birds.

Thankfully dinner was great and there were thank you’s from the family with calmness all around. We discussed vacation options and settled on one as a family. She did eventually get the paragraph finished about 10:00pm. It is now bed time….well beyond bedtime since my bedside clock now says 12:26am, and I am winding down. We did work in a bit of light reading in the form of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Good night all! Maybe my brain will be intact by morning, or I may have to invest in a RemeberAll…

(NIGHT TIME UPDATE: I tossed and turned for about 4 hours until Bug had a nightmare and came to sleep with me. I got about 3 1/2 hours of sleep before the hubby came to bed and we had to get up. It is a shower and probably coffee kind of morning. My sanity is hanging in there for now.)

We survived the past 5 days!

Honestly this has been the busiest Thursday through Monday we have had in a long time.  We have made it with most of our sanity intact.

Thursday, we were thankful that the crazy rain and thunder storm decided to come through early. Why?! Because our homeschool club has an outdoor field trip on Friday. We were watching the weather all week and then most of the day on Thursday to prepare for bad weather. We got some rough weather alright with lightning! It apparently got too close to the house and zapped our modem. No internet, just peachy! (I had set a new blog post to run for Friday a few days ago or there would not have been one.) I needed to check travel directions, finish paying bills, taxes were supposed to be done this weekend too….CRUD! (We didn’t know for sure about the lightning until today, Monday.)

Friday, thankfully was beautiful and perfect for a nice drive and trip to the zoo. An absolute perfect day to be outdoors! It was tiring for sure, but well worth it.Although, I did need to plan a rushed dinner on the way home. My hubby was so sweet and told me not to cook, but to just get what we needed for cold sandwiches on the way home…….whew….I was so glad to hear that!

Saturday, we met up with a great group of friends for the youngest kiddo’s birthday. We were early so we went for a walk in the nice weather first. We didn’t get very far but didn’t want to waste it. Then we went to the fun little paint party for the now 6 year old. Afterward we went out to eat just with our close group to visit more.  We scared the restaurant staff with our group of 13. Sadly it has been over a year since we’ve been together. The last time was Christmas in March 2014. And now Birthday/Christmas in April 2015….. We really don’t live that far apart! I am 45 minutes from one family and about 25 minutes from the other. We say all year long that we need to get together more, but don’t come through on it as much as we should. (I think we did meet one of those families at an amusement park in between there.) Anyway, we got home after dark and were so glad to be home. Before the party we set up an appointment with our cable/internet technician to fix our issue on Monday. My hubby asked if a certain time would be ok…….um, no, testing! I would not be home until later in the afternoon…..

Sunday, I declared that we were doing nothing! I made an exception for meal planning and shopping. I don’t lose my mind this week. I also made an exception for games and a movie, those are fun and relaxing. We made it an early night with baths and prep for the next day…. I packed a lunch for Bug and her pencil case filled with only the essentials for testing. The main thing that I kept reminding myself to pack was her glasses. (Testing without glasses would not go over very well.) I packed my bag full of things to keep me occupied for three hours of waiting.

Monday, today, Bug’s first standardized test…I lugged my bag, umbrellas, and Bug’s lunchbox into the test building early. We got signed in and waited for 45 minutes before she was sent to a testing room… Finally she got into her testing room and was ready to go. I was more nervous than she was! At her first break she came out telling me how easy the reading comprehension part was and that she finished 6 minutes early. She was so proud of herself and even said that it was fun!  She nearly attacked her lunchbox saying “I am starving!” She grabbed her water and snackbar and quite literally choked it down, gagging a few times. We finished her break talking with friends about video games. I was so proud of her and could now relax and stop worrying so much. On her next break, she didn’t even bother trying to find me. She stood in the hall talking with the same group of boys about video games. We did meet a local celebrity who also homeschools her children. Meeting her made Bug’s year! I spent quite a bit of time talking with her and one of her close friends while waiting on our kids to finish testing. That was a pretty big surprise for the day, hanging out with someone that is on national television (on occasion). I knew it was supposed to rain again today, but I did not expect flood weather. I did not even know it was raining outside. We started to leave and I looked through the glass doors at the torrential downpour. Bug was ready to go so we took of to the parking lot without finding the truck first. We were wading through about 2 inches of flowing water everywhere we stepped taking the long way around. We finally got to the truck but are having problems getting the umbrellas folded down and putting the huge bag in the back seat. By the time we got in we were soaked! Luckily I had two layers on and could use my half soaked shirt as a towel. There was nothing I could do for my drenched jeans from thighs down, or for my squishy canvas shoes. About 1/3 of the drive home was through heavy rain and flooded city streets. When we got home our driveway was blocked by 2 technician’s trucks. I park at the side of the house and wonder if my hubby knows they are here because they are standing outside. While inside I see that there are not only two, but three men working on our internet, my hubby has the dog on a leash so he won’t bolt, and I still have to cook in soaked clothes. Finally, internet is fixed, dinner is fixed, dry yoga pants are on, and food is going down. The technicians are back because they forgot something. Yay, let’s live stream some tv and chill.

Bug is worried about school tomorrow because we were not able to take time off for camping. I informed her that we are not taking the week off just because she had testing, but I have decided that tomorrow is a Home Ec./no video game day.  Why, because this house is a wreck after these crazy few days and I am not cleaning it all by myself.

Dang it I am so tired…..but we made it!
