Ten Things

I just don't have time to blog. Sorry.
So I will list.

Things learned and/or encountered this week:

1. Time lost by not saying "no" to people that want to talk my ear off.

2. I can homeschool four kids at one time but it takes awhile! :) My niece and nephew are here and the kids have had a great time. It has been fun combining school too.

3. Oobleck

4. Egyptians mummified insects.

5. I make great homemade pizza.

6. I was suffering indigestion but acidophilus took care of it.

7. My daughter has this swing she loves that is a yellow rope over a branch in the front yard. In his anger, my Oldest broke the little nubby branch to make my daughter mad. She came inside like her arm broke declaring, "I wish this day never came!" It truly was her main delight of going outside every day. I could have tied my Oldest to said tree and fed him sardines and put a dunce cap on his head, but instead I made him sit in the sunroom and read the Bible. I was so angry I did not want to truly torture the boy. I mean, I did, but I knew that it would be bad of me. So---while he sat in the sunroom, I went to the shed and CUT a new branch down and CARVED a groove into the thing so the Girl could have her swing back. I could think of nothing else to do.

8. Adulthood is thinking every bad name in the book to call someone you are angry at, but not doing it.

9. Skinny people can feel fat even when they hear that Tara Reid is only 105 pounds.

10. Conservatives don't gloat like Liberals, and that's a fact. Um, no offense.

RE: #8, what if instead of saying the words you want to say, you instead stammer, "Crap! Poop! Butt!"

Maybe I wasn't quite an adult yet, it was when my oldest was around 5, and I so wanted to swear at him in anger.

Another proud parenting moment.

Someone say pizza? Mph!

I was fatter than Tara Reid when I was born. Snort.

Speaking of Egyptian insects, we went out of our way on vacation one time to what turned out to be an incredibly small Egyptian exhibit in California. They had dung beetles.

Dung beetles are some of my favorites. At times such as this, when I'm down and out, I think of the Dung Beetle, and all is better.

Seriously.

I would promise never to do whatever it was again EVER if you were gonna make me sit in the scorch room and read the Good Book.

We just made Oobleck this week. Very amazing stuff. Pound on it? Solid. Run fingers through it, liquid.

And I didn't even call you this week and talk for two hours. :)

I tried acidophilus for a week. I had the worst headaches ever. My mom said that that means it was working. I stopped taking it.
