Terrible Tuesday, the beginning of crazy season

Yesterday was the first softball practice of the season, thus kicking off the time of year commonly known as “AAAUUUUGGGGHHHH!”  It’s the straw that broke the schedule’s back.  On the way back from practice, I was discussing with Sprite survival strategies and just when I thought we’d figured it out, she said, “But mom, what about Scouts?”

Back to the drawing board.  So while I sit here with spreadsheets and highlighters trying to figure out how to be two places at once, you read some links. M’kay?

I haven’t fully explored this, but Mission US looks pretty cool and we’re studying the American Revolution this month. Speaking of the Revolution, Amelia Hamilton’s new children’s book 10 Steps to Freedom comes out very, very soon. Maybe today. Or next week. “Soon” is my point.

Speaking of history and in honor of President’s Day:



A couple of week ago, I posted a link on fake poop restoring healthy gut bacteria, this week it’s a link on the different gastrointestinal bacteria of autistic children.  I sense a theme.

So a guy has a mortar gun (A miniature, tiny, toy mortar gun) in the background of a picture on facebook. Someone calls the cops, and the British equivalent of a SWAT team raids his house searching for the deadly-tiny-toy.  I think the man needs to have an IQ test for his facebook friends.

I’m kind of an anti-projects, lapbook, unit studies homeschooler. Which is, frankly, heresy in some corners. But this post by the Deputy Headmistress filled me with joy and peace.  Like warm oatmeal cookies on cold day.

The Jerk Store called and it wished it was even remotely related to The 5 Wittiest Comebacks in the History of Trash Talk. (It’s Cracked, so language, scatalogical humor, and general immaturity. You’ve been warned.)

About the “minimum wage”: the real minimum wage is zero; and with high unemployment rates, especially among the young, that needs to be acknowledged.  And more than 98% of full-time workers are paid more than the minimum wage. Which also should be acknowledged. Facts, man. What the heck?

“When the chips were down, Father proved himself to be the greatest example of manhood I’ve ever seen in my life.”  What an amazing epitaph for an extraordinary man.

    Yep. I hear you. I didn’t realize that home schooling would be a full time job… and, I thought I’d actually have time to write!? (Descends into laughter, becoming ever more hysterical…)
