To vote tomorrow! It's so very important to get out there and make yourself heard. Even if you feel your vote won't count on the national level make sure you vote for your state and local choices. You can't bitch if you don't vote!
Well, we are six months into 2017 - I can't believe it!
Zach has finished his sophomore year. I've started saving for all those "senior things" because I know that will be here before I know it. He did very well and I'm proud of him for taking on brick and mortar after so many years of homeschooling. That kid is pretty awesome.
Some of my most recent crochet projects:
Another thing I've been doing since mid April is virtual challenges/races. I found a site called Yes.Fit and I really love it! I've completed three challenges since I started:
Currently I'm working on Kruger National Park (117 miles).
I also found a couple other sites Will Run for Bling - where I'm working on the 100 Days of Summer 200 Mile Challenge (16.8 miles done so far!); and Moon Joggers where I have signed up for a few races: 4 for the 4th of July; Total Eclipse of the Sun Run; and Ugly Sweater 5K (or 10K - I have until December to decide).
Let's just be clear here - I do…
When did it become acceptable to send your sick kids to school and get everyone else sick?
My little man got in the car yesterday after school and said "I don't feel good". In the whole five minutes it took us to get home he was running a fever and pale.
Now, rude parents, I'm trying to juggle school and a sick boy. After a rough night I made it to math class (thankfully my dearest was able to come home while I went to class). That's one class I really cannot afford to miss. But tomorrow, well, that's not going be so easy.
I have Sociology at 8 and English at 11. Dearest can only get home for one and I have to choose. I chose English because it's by far the class I struggle the most with. It was a hard decision because I LOVE Sociology. Weird, huh?
To top it off, now my little man is missing school - work that he will have to make up - so when he does get better, he will be unable to enjoy it because he'll be buried under work he missed.
From August to December. Once again I have to get better about doing this! It's not like I haven't been doing anything though!
First, Zach is rocking Sophomore year. He did go back to brick and mortar school this year. His grades have been great and he seems to have adjusted very well. I'm learning how to be a morning person again - it's hard!
I've been trying to be crafty and creative these last few months. These things are usually fails because my mom's creative gene skipped me completely 😔. I guess it is what it is, you know what I mean? That hasn't stopped me from trying though!! Here are some things I've done in the last few months.
Painting! I've taken three classes at a local place called Sip n Gogh. It is really fun, and honestly, they make it hard to screw things up!
I've not limited myself to painting either. Nope - I'm also teaching myself how to crochet. This one can be particularly frustrating sometimes. I've tried my hand…
