Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play.  It's recess time!

OK, I'm just going to whine a tiny bit.  Couldn't the snow have gotten here faster...and the winter storm warning started earlier...so co-op would have been cancelled and we could have stayed at home all day?  That would have been a great idea, I think!  Oh well.  We will go out in it and have winter driving practice and do what we do best...be wild crazy homeschoolers Laughing

DD has a new top to wear today so she's happy...and cute with her new "bow" hairstyle.  

We're all in a good mood and had good sleep.  And a good breakfast.

Stay safe if there's any snow in your forecast (which I think there isn't...I think we get the snow and other people get the rain, unless it switches over to snow for you!

I hope a new top = a positive shopping trip!

Atr first glance, today looks like a lazy at home day, but we have 3 history lessons to read and notetake on, math, a writing assignment, penmanship, literature, and 2 books to continue reading. I almost forgot--reciting the chain of presidents backwards and forwards. I should see if there is a song for this. I have 2 puppies to keep occupied-they've got winter blues and are rambunctious.  I think I will work with them with the tunnel and the hula hoop. I have 5 loads of laundry ( washing, drying, folding and putting away) and 2 dishwasher loads to take care of.  DS will take care of litter,  In my sparetime, I'd like to read more of my book, Swamplandia.  I don't have any pasta which makes it difficult to carry out my meal plan.   I will need to go to the grocery store or maybe DH can pick it up on his way home tonight.

Still not feeling great, but I did feel more energy today. So we made it to the pool, and we even swam laps.  We had a healthy home cooked lunch, loads of yummy veggies in a wrap. Now school work, taxi jobs and music to attend to later, so who knows about dinner. I did set out stuff to thaw so I can choose from the weeks  list of dinner ideas, later.

 Also Cat sitting job, we love to visit with cats! Or We could call it additional science lab work...as we are paid to keep said cats alive, if at all possible. One is elderly so you just never know. We have plant science going again and are keeping a log for that. If all  goes well, flowers by March and  few herbs to eat too. 

Our own pets...keeping lizards warm enough under lights, and fed when all the cricket shipments are dead at the pet store....fun and challenging work! Luckily our lizards both eat worms and they are easier to keep alive in shipping in winter! Dog hair removal, cat hair ball treatments...we do way to much Science here and seem to enjoy it! My kid in HighSchool is getting excellent grades in all Science classes, so long term...it works! Now if only Math could work so well...yikes! Right brain dominance and Algebra hardly ever seem to mix!   Not for me either...letters and numbers should NEVER be friends, or try and solve problems together!

Hey all,  Things are kind of crazy and something has to give.  For a bit I need an internet break.   I'll be back.  Sue, I will let you know if we are headed up you way.
