    Well, I don't know about Glee...I actually just started watching the show and I'm intrigued by it because I don't understand it. It seems to me the characters are all lip synching and it seems to me the voices don't match the characters so it's sort of strange, but since so many people love it I figured I'd try to figure it out. Last night's episode was the first one that I've seen where they've tried to address a real issue (the role of religion in a public school, religion vs athesim) and since the outcome wasn't the expected one (the atheist didn't convert, despite going through a tough time in his life and lots of peer pressure to "believe") I have to give the show credit. I always like it when the media doesn't cower to the religious right.

    My message was too long, so I'll stop here....

    thanks for the message!

    Thanks so much for the kind words! I've been a basket case lately and feel like I am falling apart. I am perimenopausal (I thought I was too young at 37!) and I've been overwhelmed for the past 6 months of being a single parent. But, the hubster comes home finally in a couple of weeks so maybe I will get back to "normal."

    You made my day!

    OH, I just found your message - thanks! I dont remember if i was talking about a particularly bad day, or what . .. but life is never dull around here, I tell you. Luckily he's fairly stable on meds - except when we forget - in fact, typing that, i just realized we'd forgotten his meds because we ate out - which happens about 4 times a year!

    I'm starting to think about applying for SSi for him for when he graduates . . . i have no idea if he will be able to support himself or not, or how much support he will need to be out in the world. He's very smart, sweet, and often helpful . ..but still has close to zero self control. so many things to worry about!

    Thanks!! This is one of my favorite boards - I've been on others and it's just not the same environment. Cheers!!

    I don't think that was me. I don't usually do friend requests -- although I do like to have friends. :-) But that was all the way back in June, so who knows?!
  7. Two mojitos! Woo hoo! That's a plan!

Spidermonkey Humor

by wild_destiny on 09-07-2010 at 10:16 PM
My 7 year old daughter, codename Spidermonkey, was suspended high off the ground within the doorway of her room (hence, her nickname).
As I was trying to pass through her doorway, which she was effectively blocking, I pleasantly asked, "Annin, could I have by, please?"
In her cheerful way, she answered, "Sure, but first, what is the magic word?"
At that, I said, "Please," (of course--what other magic word is there.)

The Whys and Hows of Fun in Learning

by wild_destiny on 09-05-2010 at 10:24 PM
I love the creative why questions that relate to homeschooling, questions that allow for a full range of thoughtful responses, rather than cut-and-dried yes/no answers. There are many types of worthwhile questions, but my favorite is the why query. Why do you homeschool? Why did you choose this/that curriculum? Why are your children hanging from rafters by their tails? (Just kidding!) An excellent why question satisfies a need to explore and delve deep into a subject, setting aside predispositions

Philosophy for Dummies

by wild_destiny on 08-28-2010 at 03:44 PM
I think? Therefore, I am confused.

The age old question (below) resolved.

Q: If your young child throws a temper tantrum in a grocery store and no (visible) shoppers are around to hear him, does he still make a sound?

A: YES! Yes, he does! Shoppers who were not even present in the store will literally come out of the woodwork just to see what all the ruckus is. As a concerned parent, you should take the only sensible course of action, and act

Holy Cow--what a week!

by wild_destiny on 08-11-2010 at 04:40 PM
This has nothing to do with homeschooling, but I am going to share anyway. Today, for the 2nd time in two weeks, a bizarre--and not good--incident has happened near our house.
As it happens, we live in a small, very conservative town, which normally does not have much crime. Of course, this morning would be the exception. The "house" next door to ours has long been converted into a business, and is one of a few hair stylist and tanning shops in our town. Apparently, they were
