All Is Well...

It's late.

My kids have sufficiently tortured each other enough and thankfully are now asleep in their beds. My wonderful DH is snoring peacefully next to me as I type on his laptop. I'm watching the early morning baboons and zebras on the
Africam. I just love that thing! Am I a dweeb or what? No, just a homeschooling mom. Check it out. There is also an Eaglecam, Hummingbirds, Bears and a new Woodpeckercam (click on wildlife for the other cams).

Update on my last post. Not sure I'm ahead of my behind yet *wink* but I am getting things done. Between DH and I, we're catching up on laundry. I think I've folded about 8 loads today. Pulling out summer clothes as well. A guy is coming to charge up the air conditioner this weekend. Summer is coming!

Haven't had a moment to work on the basement for my art room. But I will get to it soon.

DH and I went to a homeschool conference on Saturday. Didn't buy anything but I got to touch and look through almost all the curriculum I had been trying to decide on. I think I'll be doing a nice big order this weekend. It's so hard to plan a year for a highschooler. It's just a new experience for me. Luckily I have wonderful homeschool friends to guide me. God is good.

I've been tagged by a new friend who visits my blog apparently. lol I'm supposed to come up with 7 weird things about myself and then tag 7 friends. Not sure I can think of that many weirdnesses, although I'm sure my family would disagree.

1 - I have a thing about hotels. It doesn't matter if we're staying 1 or 20 days, I have to unpack. My DH says 'I'll just get out of your way, I know how you like the room to be.' I have to line things up in rows, in drawers, in the closet, on the bathroom sink. But I don't do that at home. It's chaos here. I'm sure a psychologist would have a hey-day with that info! lol
2 - I pick my lip. Seriously. Down to the next layer. Until it is brittle and dry. DH says he always knows when I'm thinking or planning because I'm picking my lip. Maybe that's not such a weird thing and other people pick like people bite their nails?
3 - If I could get away with it, I'd never wear a bra. It's the first thing I take off when I come home. If my family sees me with one on, their first question is 'where are we going?' lol I'm sure I would have fit in SO WELL in the 60's. Burn Baby Burn!
4 - I have a thing about edges. My cheese has to be to the edge of my pizza, my spreads to the edge of my bread, the cream cheese filling my entire length of celery. I think I have a thing about completeness. Haven't figured that one out yet...
5 - I have a problem with movie quoting. It's pretty bad. I do it all the time. It's so bad, I'll quote a line and ask 'do you know what that comes from?' and DH or DD will say 'such and such a movie' and they've never even seen it! lol Favorite Movies to Quote: Steel Magnolias, French Kiss, The Money Pit.
6 - I'm not really a girly girly. I hate clothes shopping. I only own one pair of shoes at a time and I wear them until they die. Birkenstock clogs or their knockoffs ONLY. I don't wear much makeup or jewelry. Except, I'm a stickler for lipstick, it keeps me from picking. (see #2.)
7 - I usually have 100-120 library books out at a time. This isn't really a weird thing for homeschoolers, but for normal people, yeah. And we read most of them too!

Okay, I'm tagging some friends. Can't wait to see your answers!
Audrey - Small Creations
Kathy - Altered Antiquity
Felicia - It's a Jungle In Here
Anita - Mundane Ramblings
Cynthia - I'm A Coconut
Shawn - BonaramaMama
Angela - Just another family Blah Blah Blog

Okay, I'm hungry. Don't ask me why. I don't know. But its late, so instead of stealing into the kitchen for a brownie, I'll go read
Cream Puff's blog. Care to join me? I'll bring the coffee. *wink*

Thanks for playing along! Yeah, I'm one of those bloiterers (I recently heard that word and was just dying to use it!) I originally found you through the ABM board...

OMG - Kris, I laughed out loud about the movie quoting...that is so funny. I do the samve, but no one ever knows what I am talking about. Then, there is the library thing...I had to re-read it to make sure I read it correctly. WOW! I thought I was a reader.

I think i have did this one before but will try and get it up on my blog. Trying to redo my blog right now and i am being a slow poke about it :o)

I can't remember movie quotes at all...i wish i could cuz there are so many good ones.

Well except for that I normally only have 7-10 library books out at a time we are quite similar, I totally have to unpack when we stay someplace else, I just can't live out of a suitcase. I also bite and pick at my lips and I totally hear you on the edges thing (I so hope I am not giving that OCD to my kids when I make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches LOL).

Have a good one!

Anita said...

Dang! You got me! I have to figure out seven things, so give me seven days! LOL

Kris...........i couldn't find where to leave a comment on your newest i going blind :o) Anyways, love your altered book pages especially the 'pure' one....beautiful. Great list of books. Did you ever get Mixed-Media Explorations by Beryl Taylor? I think my top three book that i never get tired of looking at is 'Collage For the Soul', 'Mixed-Media Explorations' and 'Collage Unleashed'. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Sorry Audrey, I figured out just now that it did some wacky thing and didn't allow comments. I fixed it now though.
