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

Starting a new curriculum can be a bit intimidating at first but once you realize how the programs work, the order in which they teach and you set up a schedule to follow for your kids (or free-style, what ever your preference be), then it gets a whole lot easier. 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

17 years

Has it really been that long since I graduated? Yes.. yes it has… I grew up in various states but I did graduate in New Jersey. I have since moved from NJ but I miss it greatly. I love the people and the ocean. I do hope to live near the ocean again someday. I have had the opportunity to live on both coasts, … Read More 17 years

12

In less than a month, my son will be 12. He will be experiencing his LAST year before becoming a teenager. I remember when I was 12, it’s crazy to think that was 23 years ago. I am still friends with some of those people who I met back in middle school. I remember the struggles I was going through as a preteen, trying … Read More 12

Rice

I really hate food trials. Emotionally I get worn out when we do them. I start a mental stopwatch and keep an eye on my daughter every time we start a new food…or retry a food she has had a reaction to in the past. This week we re-tried rice. I decided to use a food product that had rice as a secondary ingredient, … Read More Rice

Growing up

My kids never cease to amaze me. I officially let my son go from grade 6 to grade 7 in homeschool. My daughter is working on pre-school stuff at home. I am not buying her a curriculum yet, but we are following some online guides for free. She does use ABC Mouse to learn basic songs and letters in the meantime but we don’t … Read More Growing up

Just another day

It’s raining right now. I think this is one of the things I miss. I moved to New Mexico 10 1/2 years ago after my son’s father and I split up, after he cheated on me. I moved to Indiana to be with him, dumb idea, but I wanted to make things work. We had a child very early on in our relationship. My … Read More Just another day
