Gotta love Mondays.

Even though I'm not getting up and going to work outside my home today, Monday still means getting back into the school routine after working last night until 11:00 p.m. and I don't want to.  I feel like I need a couple of hours of drinking coffee and staring.  I should've gotten up earlier so I could have done that, instead of having to jump into my cleaning and exercise routine so quickly after getting up.  Fortunately, blogging is on my list and I don't really work that hard at blogging, kind of just free-flowing ideas, so it's almost as good as just sitting and staring ...

A funny thing I've noticed since I started reading Pride and Prejudice is how many times that book is referred to in other books.  Has anyone else noticed this?  I bet Mr. Darcy has been referred to in at least 8 books I've read since beginning P&P.  (Hello, my name is Fatcat and I'm a bookaholic.)  It's weird how many times that book is referred to by others.

In other news, I mentioned that I was going to try and get an MP3 player for my birthday to a friend in my home school group and she said "Oh, I've got one at home you can just have".  It's brand new, her husband works in a store where it was marked down 90% off then he used his employee discount.  They didn't even make me pay the 3 or 4 dollars he had to pay for it, and told me to consider it a gift.  How cool is that?  Now for my birthday, I want my house cleaned by someone other than me.  That's my new birthday wish.  The kids and I made a little path in the woods and I have been walking on it already.  Now if I can just figure out how to transfer music files to my new MP3, I'll be set. 

Better get busy, though I really don't want to.

My mom is headed back to the emergency room today so I've changed my birthday wish to healthiness for my parents.  Who cares about the darn housework.

You're right about Mr. Darcy! (sigh...*Mr. Darcy*, is there an earthly man like him?)

So, with homeschooling, do you still do a march break? Or do you even bother?
I'm seriously considering homeschooling my boys. They're 5 and 6, and right now they're in a split junior/senior Kindergarten class.

So many people have jumped down my throat that i've even had the "thought" to homeschool, and I haven't even said that i'm going to do it yet. I'm still thinking about it.

Reading your blog is encouraging though :)

I hope your mom is doing ok.

I love homeschooling and I wouldn't quit doing it for anything. You should try it. Make sure you meet with some other homeschoolers for some support though, they will help keep you from getting discouraged.

Sometimes we take a March break, sometimes not. We probaby will this year, but we haven't set a date yet. I don't think it will be a whole week, just a couple of days and make it a long weekend.
