7 Quick Takes January 25 2012

So it is here...the March for Life commemorating 40 years of legalized abortion.  40 years...what a biblical number.  Did anyone else notice that today is also the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul.  You know, bright lights, voice from Heaven, knock him off his horse type conversion.  Think it all means anything?

Why is it that all day I had more than 7 things I wanted to include here but now, as I type, I can remember none of them?  Pre-menopause brain-fog...that is why!

I've had laryngitis for a week now and, no, my husband and children aren't excited.  In fact, we're all quite ready for this to be over as everyone is tired of me sounding like Batman.  School has been a pain; I had to call on Ms 17 and Ms 18 yo to be substitute teachers at the beginning of the week.  I really just want my voice back so that I can belt out those songs from the "Les Mis" CD Ms 17 yo got for her birthday this week.  I suppose then they'll all be hoping I lose it again :)

I often wish I had time to just sit on the couch and read a good book.  You know, a comfortable couch where I'm sitting, casually sipping my coffee and reading a great story.  Unfortunately when I do get my hands on a good book there's nothing casual about it.  I have a tendency to devour a book, doing pretty much nothing until it is finished.  Before you know it I'm done with the book and my life is in chaos because I've ignored everything.  As a matter of fact, this very thing happened to me this week...300+ page book in 24 hours.  Done.  Over.  No reading that one at a casual pace.  It is a very frustrating habit!

The girls just ordered some new soap fragrances in time for Valentine's Day.  They aren't in yet, but rumor has it there will be soaps with names like:  Strawberry Shortcake, Pink Sugar, Lavender, Sweet Pea and Honeysuckle.  Keep an eye out, they should be in in about a week!

February is looming right around the corner.  A big, scary monster of a month.  February is usually the hardest month to homeschool around here.  Cabin fever, moaning and complaining, all that kind of stuff.  It usually isn't pretty.  Does this happen to you?  How do you combat it?  While I'd like to plan a month long vacation to Hawaii, it ain't gonna happen so somehow I need to plan ahead and fight it off before it gets here.  Any ideas?

I'll leave you with my current favorite song!

  1. Hello, fellow Les Miz fan! Found you on conversion diary. One Day More is one of my favorites, too. And it took so much self-control not to sing when I was at the movie theater. As for #1, I do pray for a million conversions.

    1. Now that would have been funny! Fortunately I didn't know the songs while watching the movie or I would have felt the same way.
