Time for

well. It's going to be fun working the blogging in along with the homeschooling thing. I used to blog first thing in the mornings, and now that school occupies that time space, I will have to figure out when I'm going to get me some bloggin' time.
Until then, here's some tidbits and pieces of what's been going on around here.:

1. I won my first fantasy football game of the season, 106 to 64. And that was with Peyton Manning as my main quarterback, who of course is injured for pretty much the whole season. I had to play my back-up QB, who basically just held down the questionable title of quarterback with a lousy seven points. Thankfully the rest of my team carried me through. Go Fightin' Frogs!

2. I just spent my evening reorganizing my coupon notebook and planning a couple of grocery store trips for tomorrow. Yes, I have a coupon notebook. Go ahead - call me a grocery geek, if you will. I am NOTHING like those extreme couponers on TV but let's just say I keep our food budget pretty low. :)

3. Yesterday (September 11th)'s significance provided me the opportunity to have some very deep conversations with the Drama Queen. Today our history lesson just happened to be on the significance and meaning of the American flag. I was able to link the two things together and really start teaching our daughter the meaning of being patriotic. The Drama Queen changes her mind daily about what she wants to be when she grows up, and it was very sweet of her to tell me, "When I'm bigger, I want to be a missionary to New York and help all those hurting people."

4. We found out at the Spud's doctor appointment today that he may have allergies which cause his heavy breathing and constant stuffed sinuses. I am hoping this is the case - if it is, he will just need to take some allergy meds to keep his breathing clearer. However, if he does not have allergies, it looks like his tonsils/adenoids will possibly need to be removed through surgery. Ick. Both the doctor and I are definitely hoping to avoid any surgery for the little guy if possible.

The lesson plans are waiting to be set out for tomorrow. I guess that's it for now. Happy Tuesday everyone!


  1. Big luck to you with the homeschooling! Many of my friends homeschool and every year as I send my girls back to school, I get a little wistful when I see the homeschoolers who get to stay right in their little nest.

    And the coupon thing? Oh my gosh! I am obsessed with couponing. Not actually doing it, mind you, because I am far too lazy to undertake such a huge endeavor. But I love watching that show. I love seeing the deals they get. Me? When they ask me if I have any coupons, I always gasp because, once again, I have left them at home.

  2. i love and depend on couponing!!
    and i am not "extreme " either. ha.

    good luck with your homeschool-it'll be great! xo

  3. I either have to blog at night and stay up way too late...or not blog at all. Homeschooling requires so much time, doesn't it?


Help relieve some of my insanity by letting me know you stopped by!
