People, You Really Need to Keep Up

I’ve been sooooooo busy. Really, it’s scary. And to make sure that you don’t miss any important moments in my oh-so-scintillating life, let me give you a bullet-point list on what the hell has been going on. I dyed my hair dark again again. Yes, I know, I think I said some year or so […]

Let’s All Waste A Lot of Time, Shall We?

Today was Back-to-School Night at the kids’ school. Given that I sent in letters today informing their teachers and the principal that tomorrow would be their last day, I figured they’d realize I wasn’t coming. Apparently, I was wrong. Punksin still had to do a whole bunch of work today that was going to be […]

The Great School Experiment Gets Cut Short

The kids started public school last week. The kids will be coming OUT of public school, THIS week. God does this school suck ass. I had hoped that within a year’s time I would gather enough material to make a book, but to be honest, the stuff I have heard and witnessed and had happen, […]

Yes I Can Still Count

I CAN count, but sometimes I get lost… I was trying to remember how many days ago I started the Lexapro Withdrawal Plan and I’m pleased to report that it’s been NINETEEN DAYS! With really no side effects to speak of. I am now on 2.5 mg of the stuff and after this we go […]

The Great School Experiment

Okay, it’s day 3 for Punksin and day 2 for Pudding and I already know that there is no way my kids are staying in this school permanently. The question is not IF they will come out, but WHEN. Thus far, it seems…tolerable. If things continue as they ARE, I will pull them out at […]

A New Chapter

Punksin started school yesterday. Public school. Third grade. Pudding starts tomorrow. Same school. Kindergarten. I’ve already decided that I am going to be keeping notes on the things Punksin tells me (and Pudding, possibly), and they will either become fodder for a book, or at very least, a long list of reasons that I will […]

Day 4…ish, and Maybe We’re Not Homeschooling Anymore?

I think it’s day 4. Look, I’m trying to survive here. Counting is just really not an integral part of my so-called rehab program. Today was…not too bad. But it was interesting. Punksin asked me to play with her. As usual, I was in the middle of 5 million things, none of which ever seem […]

What Happens When You Wake Up Momma Bear

Punksin has been attending camp for Gifted and Talented students. (Yes, thank you very much, she IS fucking awesome.) I don’t know why I thought that somehow, because these kids would be smart and gifted and talented and in some cases, nerdy, that maybe, just maybe, they wouldn’t be ASSHOLES. Or at least if they […]

Pet Peeve #174

I hate when someone asks you to do something, and you’re not quite sure how to go about it, so you ask for clarification, and they pretty much just REPEAT THE SAME WORDS THEY SAID, which offers ZERO by way of clarification. If I didn’t understand what you meant the FIRST time you said it, […]

Watching My Back

Today Punksin and I had our first history lesson using K12.  We’d previously been using another curriculum provider for history and although my bookworm self loved it, I realized that it was a tad too much reading and not enough doing-of-other-stuff. We had to do a little review to be sure she knows all they […]
