Monday Afternoon

This is the third time I've tried to blog today. My computer keeps closing blogger down on me.

Have cramps. Sick of cramps. Am ready for menopause. Right now.

Hot out. Thomas came in because it was too hot to play. All the neighborhood kids wanted air conditioning.

Ordered all our school stuff. Less than $200. Woo-hoo to that! Thomas looked at the language arts stuff I blogged about and Painless Grammar and some other stuff I found. He chose Grammar Rules! and Mechanics. Go figure. I guess I'm learning to read him pretty well.

Have discovered that our school room actually has a floor complete with carpeting. Of course there isn't a clean, flat surface in there yet, just stacks of books, but will get it all cleaned before school starts in September.

Thomas is working on a quilling project for the county fair. I have my mom's old quilling supplies and dug them out. Neat entry for the paper craft category. All the stuff we found was pretty "girly" and then we found some neat books with bugs and fish, so Thomas has been making fish, sea horses, etc. Didn't buy the books, but studied the pictures online. Call me cheap. Will share pictures when it's all done.

Can't believe it's almost August. Where did the summer go?

I think the couch is calling me. I still feel like crap. I wish I could have a motrin IV drip -- well, actually I'd prefer something a little stronger and something that would make me "happy" if you know what I mean. I'm sure Bob would agree with that!

Glad to see that you are back to the blog, missed reading what was going on. I hate it when I have pc problems.

We finally turned on our air. Makes us all want to stay inside -- yuck. I feel like I never ordered school stuff this year. Maybe I should look at Grammer Rules and Mechanics :-)

Best of luck on the quilling project.

Morphine. Dream your way through the pain, asleep or otherwise ;)

I'm trying to sort out our school areas as well. What a nightmare! The worst part is that it wouldn't be this way if I'd have organized it better in the first place. I hate when I can only be mad at myself.

The fair is over and it's raining and finally NOT in the 90s and humid, so I have a bit of time before we're out of the house to see visiting family; I'll have to start catching up before I get busy again with the next round of stuff.

Hope you're feeling better, and I'm looking forward to the pictures of T's projects. I like the idea of the animals for quilling...

Back to reading some of the previous posts :)

Ugh, cramps suck! I'm sorry you're feeling icky. :(

We've been hiding out in the house lately as well. Of course, our excuse is just that we're a lazy bunch. LOL
