We are still having homeschool moments...

but there are more "real life" moments going on right now.

The mystery sickness that seems to hit my kid every year at this time, the doctor visits that go along with that, and the difficulties of homeschooling someone who is sick. all. the. time.

The kidney infection that had me in the hospital for three days.  I know I'm not the only mom who has ever had the fantasy of a few days of leisure in the hospital with a non-life-threatening illness and a pile of books.  Lots of time to read, people bringing water and tea and food... Forget it.  The reality is nothing like the fantasy.

Then there was The Storm.  We were not hit hard; we just lost power for about 30 hours, and one of our trees fell, taking out the landline.  (Yes, we still have a landline.)  That was easily fixed, and the tree was no great loss - we hated it.  There are a few more old trees that we wish would fall down. 

After the storm, there was the flurry of appointment-rescheduling for the mystery sickness.  Then, my lithotripsy (aka kidney-stone-blasting) procedure which took most of a day. 

I really need to stop making blog plans.  Maybe I'd blog more!

Hey, it's NaNoWriMo month!  I'm not doing it, but my kids are!  There'll be at least one homeschool moment in November, as they share bits of their stories!

Wow. I don't know what to say after all that. Hospital, mystery, storm...Glad everyone is okay!

So glad everyone and everything is okay after all that! And yes, I've had those hospital fantasies too, but the one time I was in the hospital, it wasn't relaxing at all!

I hope you're not offended by my political post, at least not too much. I do agree that for a spur-of-the-moment speech, Romney's concession was well done.

I am sure I am bound to offend some people with that post, and that's a chance I chose to take. I realize that a lot of people I know will be on the opposite side of the fence from me when it comes to politics, but I still apologize if I offended you!
