I thought today was Monday…

Today I woke up and rushed out of bed to wake my son up for homeschool. We run on a schedule because my son’s adjustment disorder and ADHD really rely on a schedule. Our day can go to hell in a basket really quickly if I don’t follow a schedule. I remembered that today I had work as well, and since work kept emailing … Read More I thought today was Monday…

Things are going to get repetitive …

Yes, we went back to the zoo again. You are going to find that with COVID going on, a lot of our “NORMAL” locations to go to are off limits due to either high activity OR not being opened. We choose outdoor activities for the kids to enjoy to help lower the risk of getting sick. I know we still have a chance to … Read More Things are going to get repetitive …

I hate computers – sort of

Computers… you’re probably at one right now or at least on a small device shaped like a phone. I’m right aren’t I ? I am such a genious! I have a love/hate relationship with my computer. It likes to stop working, while I love it when it actually works. No, my computer isn’t old. It’s actually less than a year old. Still under warranty … Read More I hate computers – sort of

Some photos from the zoo….

The zoo opened here in Albuquerque again. Minus all the indoor activities of course, this is a COVID-19 world as we all know. But my family and I have decided that since we went to the Bio-park garden in the weeks prior that we would feel comfortable about to go to the zoo. New Mexico is a mandatory facemask state, so I am comfortable … Read More Some photos from the zoo….

Potty training hell & School photos

Let’s see…whats new…? Well, yesterday I started hardcore potty training with my 2 year old. So the only time she is allowed to have a diaper is when she is napping or asleep for the night. We don’t go out with her often, so that’s not too much of an issue right now. But she is resisting training right now, she will hold it … Read More Potty training hell & School photos

Transitioning care and Homeschooling

My daughter will no longer qualify for the occupational therapy services she is currently receiving in about 6 months or less. I am not certain if this is because she is turning 3 and she would have to qualify for services through our school district, but they seem to be hinting at that. Anyways, the services she receives are MOSTLY free. OT is free, … Read More Transitioning care and Homeschooling

I’m posting this from my phone because my computer is broken

Oh yes, the computer I got last December decided to not work… Isn’t that lovely!? We have tried so many ways to get it to boot, we tried to get into bios. I’m waiting on tech support for iBUYPOWER. I have a warranty. The issue is just making sure my photos are safe of the kids. It’s frustrating because this computer isn’t that old … Read More I’m posting this from my phone because my computer is broken

Back to work…for now

Today marks the first day I have worked since sometime in April. If you don’t already know, I work PRN coding medical charts. But since COVID-19 caused clinics/hospitals to limit elective surgeries and stop some outpatient care, the facility I work for decided to save $$ by cutting its’ PRN hours back to nothing. That’s fine and dandy when you don’t NEED the money… … Read More Back to work…for now

Home-school Facebook groups : That I find helpful

If you are like me at all – when I started looking into homeschooling my son a year and a half ago I had no idea where to start, or even if homeschooling would work out for my child. Thankfully I found groups of people just like me online, via facebook. Here is a listing of the facebook groups that I have personally joined … Read More Home-school Facebook groups : That I find helpful

10 days into the Sonlight curriculum

My son is in the 7th grade level of his education and we have … Read More 10 days into the Sonlight curriculum

Old Computer Files

I was secretly dreading getting my new hard drive reader today. I have an old hard drive with photos I care about – and when I hooked it up to my new computer (it was in an external hard drive reader) it just wouldn’t work. Nothing…. but it was an old thing so I was hopeful… and ordered a new reader… Today the UNITEK … Read More Old Computer Files
