Back in the Blogging Saddle


I think I pretty much left my “four times a week” blog posting goal in its death throes several weeks ago.  When I checked in today I noticed a little bit of life around its blue tinged blog lips, so I will march on and hope for better consistency in the future. Read the rest of this entry »

Baseball, Sundaes and Advice from a Stranger


Day Two of the Little League experience!  Tomorrow is the first game and these boys are looking great!  E is enjoying the extra playground time, though today it wasn’t mobbed with kids like yesterday…  We ended the day with Colonial and sundaes.  Pictures follow… Read the rest of this entry »

Take Your Spawn to Work on Earth Day


Jeff’s company put together a cool program for “Take Your Child to Work Day” and not a single explosion or workplace fatality resulted while N was on the premises!  Yeah!  E and I played on a lot of playgrounds and enjoyed our Earth Day together…  Pictures and video follow!

Waterboarding and Bull Goring and Violin… Oh My!


Today was awesome…another one for the record books, in my humble opinion.  N faced a big source of fear and anxiety, E schooled us on lifestyle choices and I was only 25 minutes late to both homeschool groups today!  Yeah!  Also worthy of note:  I didn’t wet my pants in traffic on the way to Evanston.  That’s good for at least a silver star on the calendar, yes?

Be Sure to Have Clean Underwear


We’re trying to get our stuff together to visit family for Easter.  I’d like to be out of here in the next hour or so, and it looks like we may *just* reach that goal.  N and I are very relaxed today and just taking the day as it comes.  In his case, the day comes with a hefty dose of Sonic Chronicles on DS.

Wirelessless


I had the uncomfortable misfortune to be without wireless connectivity this week for a couple of days.  It was awful.  I feel the need to blog about it in great detail so no one is left with the mistaken impression that it was like “a breath of fresh air” or that we are better people because of it.  I found myself itchy and tense, more so than my usual psoriasis and chronic stress would account for.

Too Cool For School


Today was the first day of the 2010 InHome Conference, our local homeschooling conference in St. Charles, IL.  Jeff took the day off work to chaperone N and E, and the boys enjoyed an Art Extravaganza, Magic Show, live animal “critter corner” and an awesome Physics show.  E had security notified of his presence before we even had a chance to digest our lunch!  I’m sure this doesn’t come as much of a shocker to anyone.
