Eating on the Cheap - Food Revelations

Two things I've helped Paul realize:

1) We are a 2 lbs. of burger/meal family

2) He asked me to buy steak knives today. I told him only white people use steak knives because they actually get to eat steak. I said Mexican families take steak, cube it (so everyone gets some), and make carne guisada that you can eat with tortillas. No steak knives required! I told him I need to start cooking for him like the Mexican husband that he is.

New Additions

So, Paul finally caved in on the idea of Pets! We are now the proud owners of two cute parakeets. The kids love them, and they are pretty easy to care for. Here's a pic of Stormy (blue) and Sunny (yellow/green), our newest additions to our family.

Dreading the Afternoon

It's time to order our books for the year! I am really dreading it and yet it's on the calendar so I have to get it done today. A box of books came yesterday, and I haven't opened it yet. I think it's the fear of having to find more shelf space, bin space, and other storage spaces for all the incoming "stuff" for the year. I always tell Paul that 3/4 of my life is currently spent straightening, organizing, pitching, resorting, and compiling. It's a mind-set, a groove, a zone that one has to be in. I should have known there was something in the cards for me when I used to get a thrill out of taking everything out of my closet, throwing it around my room, and loving to reorganize it all! Kids shouldn't like to organize stuff, but I did! Weird!!

My Homeschool Nerds

This afternoon the girls had a neighborhood girlfriend over to play. This kid doesn't like school and has been having trouble learning the states and capitals so the girls asked her if she wanted to listen to the radio. They treated her to their States and Capitals cassette and told her they would help her learn them!

I'm Feeling It!

I haven't been feeling it really, but today I am! I feel tired, a little dizzy, and I really want to take a nap. I think it's really starting to physically set in. I've been mentally preparing, but today my body is saying, "Are you ready for another adventure?"

Baby #7 is definately letting me know he/she is under construction.

Getting ready for another Play

Here is a pic of the girls with a column they made out of posterboard to be used as a prop for their Christmas play. They've been working on preparations for a few weeks. They quickly informed me that this column has an ionic top with a doric bottom. I was going to ask because I remembered my Art & Arch. class. However, they beat me to it. Maria said she had read about it in her History book. Thankfully, they really are learning something.;)
