    Default Monday Roll Call, 10/10

    Good Morning
    It is a Monday!
    Columbus Day. Anyone taking it off?
    Of course that means no banks and no mail today(I think, need to check).
    2 kiddos plus my 2 giants today.
    I am giving them a free do whatever day after the weekend.
    I think we will have a movie and fun day for daycare.
    I am tired. I am always a 2nd day it hits me person. Yesterday, I was tired but had stuff like washing bedding, dishes, etc. and returning things to normal. This morning, I am POOPED.
    So, will putter around and do small things but nothing big.
    Though I do need to pull some more stuff from garden to get it out tonight in yard debris container for trash day tomorrow. Probably do pumpkins and gourd vines.
    The rain is supposed to stop today. Thank goodness. No rain for the next couple days.
    Hope everyone had a great weekend, got to do some FALL stuff and that your Monday is shaping up to be pretty darn good!

    Lol Malware Warning

    Met a new homeschool group today. DD danced with her skirt up the whole time and DS hit himself in the face with a large, heavy magnet. It was a library tour. I'm glad we've built up a relationship with the librarians over the last few years. I was like, c'mon guys just be good in front of our new friends. No go. They were nuts.

    Starting our election stuff today. DS is excited. I wish I was more excited about the election, but here we are. Ho hum.

    Weather is beautiful here. Will spend the afternoon outdoors.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.

    That's strange, it seemed to have messed up the URL for some reason. Fixed the link and added in the text for copy/paste in case it continues to happen, but it seems to be resolved now.

    Odd that it would trigger that for a youtube link, but it was probably because of my moving the post to this thread from another one. Sorry about that and thanks for the heads up!

    Malware warnings have been ongoing for some reason. Not sure why.
    We don't do school on Mondays so no school for us anyway. I need to package up the chicken for the freezer today. Maybe do some laundry. I should probably at least do something art related, I need to have enough to take with me to make a good effort of selling at the beginning of December and that's just getting closer all the time now.

    We too had a day "off" but it wasn't just a do whatever day. We had conferences with the charter the state of CA makes us connect. This is our 4th year at this charter, and we're there biding our time. But today was hairy. The ideal for this charter is that when a family comes in they're assigned to an ES (edcuational specialist)who meets with you every 6 weeks and will be your ES for the years to come. However, we and several other families, have bounced around from ES to ES and now they've settled us with one who isn't going anywhere.

    This new ES, who I met with today, did not read up on our history with the charter, or how I teach or parent, or anything. She scolded me and then had to take it back, she scolded him a few times, and it wasn't warranted. I'm so beyond mad about how that went. But as some of you may know, I've been bedridden the last week. Today was my first jaunt, short as it was, outside in the big bad world. And I just did not have the energy or ability to deal with that at the time. She's the dread of this whole thing. If I'd have been assigned to her from the get go, I'd have moved on someplace else. She's awful. Nitpicky. Thinks there's a "proper technique" for homeschooling...

    I'm back in bed and I can forget her for now. I at least emptied the dishwasher today too! That's a celebration. You know when Mom is down for the count the house goes to Hades in a hand-basket.

    No day off for us. We schooled as usual.
    We were able to watch the Cherokee Nation Chief proclaim Indigenous People's Day via Facebook. That was neat.
    Hubby does get paid double today, so that is a positive.

    Awww LUX, that SUCKS. Can you request someone else?
    Shouldn't have to put up with that crap. Not fair and not worth it, esp. when you have been down for the count.
    Hope you are better today.
