It's Sunday!

A new week is upon us and before I get sucked back into the school thing again I thought I better let everyone know I'm still alive! {waves}

This last week was good. Well, mostly good. Zach settled into his schedule, I settled into mine, and he even decided wearing a uniform to school was ok. Some days he didn't even change out of it when he got home - just untucked his shirt!

Tuesday was my first lab for Oceanography. Well, let me say that again - this is my first lab ever. Yep, that's right - I only had to take one year of science in high school (thanks CA for the great education!) and I took general science (no lab required). I need to find new lab partners though. Those boys ignored me. I don't know if it was because I was old or a girl (or both!!). I have smart ideas - just listen to me fools!

Wednesday I knew I was only going to get my running in if I got up at 5. Which I did. And I ran five 2 minute intervals (5K101 Week 1), without wimping out on a single inter…

What's Your Song? 8.25.11

I had a hard time deciding today. I wanted to choose something off Hollywood Vampires by LA Guns, but honestly, I love the whole album (yes, I called it an album) so much that I couldn't decide. And I do love these guys a lot:

And I love this guy a lot too:

So I decided why not combine both of them? Here it is - Kick it up a Notch by Phineas, Ferb, and Slash!

Don't you dare forget to link up with Goodnight Moon and see what everyone else is listening to today!

Until next time ~ Kris

Pour Your Heart Out: I'm a Bad Mom

Today I'm linking up with Things I Can't Say to Pour my Heart Out. Check out her link and if you comment on any of the link ups remember rule #1 - be respectful!

When did my dreams become more important than my sons future? I can't really answer that, all I know is that at some point it happened and I feel like the worst mom in the world.

Zach went to private school for K and 1st, I homeschooled him for 2nd and 3rd, and last year I put him in public school. It was during that time I needed something do to with myself, so I went back to school to follow my dream of becoming a teacher. But I feel guilty every day.

The education system here (both private and public) are terrible. And that's the nicest thing I can think to say about them. We had our issues when we homeschooled, but nothing we couldn't (or didn't) sort out.

He is really enjoying being in "regular" school, but it's easy to see why. He's "one of the brightest" in his grade.…

Last Week Was...

Crazy. Zach and I both started back to school. Zach on Tuesday and me on Thursday. By Wednesday I was so stressed out by the numskulls at the transportation office I was ready to scream. Actually, I think I might have, in my car, whilst banging my head on the steering wheel.....

Turns out my son, who has one year left in his current school, is going to the wrong school. The school the transportation office told me to send him to - up until an hour before they told me he was in the wrong school. Thank God he's a good kid and I'm a good parent, his Principal and I discussed how to work things out on Tuesdays, when I can't pick him up because I have a late Science Lab. I guess being involved pays off, even though that's not why I do it.

So far he likes 5th grade, uniforms and all! Of course, they really don't do anything the first week - so we will see how he feels next week =) Here's my little man on his first day of school...

Then it was time for me to head to s…

What's Your Song? 8.18.11

I've missed almost of month of link ups with Goodnight Moon. I'm embarrassed and ashamed.

We were on vacation for three weeks - for one of those I didn't have internet. For the other two I have no excuse. But while we were road trippin' we listened to a lot of music. Hubby has XM in his truck and since I got to pick the music the two stations of choice were Hair Nation and '80's on 8. I know you guys really didn't expect anything else, right?

So for my coming back song I picked one that I heard while traveling. I really loved it back then and I still love it (and shamelessly I remembered all the words when it came on the radio!).

Enjoy, from the year I graduated, Kyrie by Mister Mister!

Until next time ~ Kris

I'm Back!

I know I've been gone for a while - we were on vacation after all, but now we are back and school starts next week - Boo! Kidding - boo for my college classes but yay Zach will be busy again!

We had a good time - we went to Columbus to visit the Ohio Caddicks and then to Michigan to visit my dad. Unfortunately, the memory card in my camera got corrupted and I lost all my pictures. I do have a few that I took with my phone to share - but the pictures of the zoo and the family are all gone. Boo again!

But I'll share what I have - aren't you guys the lucky ones? =)

So there's part of our trip in pictures. The fun times we had are memories and now it's get back to the reality of life again!

I hope everyone whose summer is coming to an end has an awesome new school year!

Until next time ~ Kris
