Boy was I busy yesterday!8:40 AM
I wanted to sit down and blog and never got a chance to get near the computer at all. By the time I slowed down it was 9pm and I was NOT going to do it, I don't think you would understand a single word I typed, I was exhausted and pretty much incoherent.
I got my groceries done yesterday and while I was at the commissary I found something that made me flip out....completely.
Just the other day I was telling Jasmine and Nicholas that I miss my favorite candy bars back home in South Africa, they wanted to know which ones and I told them that I LOVE Flake and Crunchie bars from Cadbury.
Well I'm walking down the aisle with all the imported products and I see some flakes just sitting there all sad, waiting for me to pick them up. I did a double take, ran back, grabbed a bunch of those and then spotted crunchie bars right next to them....I think I yelled or Woohoo'd or something because the people next to me gave me a very weird look. LOL
I DON'T CARE, I've been craving these and I didn't think I would ever taste them again, at least not for a few months until I go back home.....so I'm a happy camper today. I will have to go back and get more soon because mine are gone, but that's neither here nor there LOL
So as you all know Jasmine just turned 8 but I swear it's like she turned just 2 years old, where does this laziness and not wanting to do anything come from??? I don't want another 2 year old, I thought I was past all of this. This girl really knows how to work my nerves. The day will come when we can get out of the house in the morning without having to fight.
The sibling rivalry is also getting out of control, apparently wanting the same things to eat in the morning *or any time of the day for that matter* is a big NO NO. It's called being a COPYCAT??? *shrug*
Or God forbid one smiles at the other, that is also a punishable offense according to the Sibling Rules Memo. It's just so frustrating to have to hear them bickering at each other constantly....just last night Curt said to me "boy do I feel bad for you when summer comes" LOL
Yeah, thanks Curt, you get to run away to work and I have to be home listening to the fighting and the "I want to watch tv"....."no I want to play video games"...."but it's my turn on the tv"....."you played 2 turns, it's MY turn now"...."I want to be peach, no I want to be Yoshi"....DARN MARIO GAME DRIVES ME INSANE!!! LOL
I want to thank ALL the ladies who dropped by with wonderful advice for the homeschooling.....as I said it's not a sure thing, I'm just trying to get as much info as possible so that if I DO have to homeschool I'll know where to go and what to do. All the great insight and info you gave me has been saved to my computer and I'm looking into it all, I had no idea there were such great christian curriculums available. Thank you again.
Last night I fixed Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas for dinner and then I whipped up a ton of Barb's Breakfast Burritos, I LOVE them and we eat them for breakfast or lunch. It doesn't take too long to fix them and it's great to have a bunch in the freezer, especially on those busy days.
Alright, I'm leaving you, keep an eye out because I'm posting a book giveaway after this post.
