    Paige- The book we're doing first is Know & Tell: The Art of Narration. After that, I'm not sure yet, but this is for middle grade fiction, classics, and homeschooling books.

    Update:
    • communicated web stuff for this forum- we'll see what comes of it!
    • took a bunch of blog photos- that sixteen old is hereby declared most photogenic. Seriously that kid never misses.
    • started working with the new photos
    • set up a salt lab- very cool updates with Isaac's help!
    • chemistry and algebra II were finished for the day
    • dishwasher was loaded
    • washed two loads of laundry- about to switch and start one more
    • made my mom's valentine- did a bookmark Valentine
    • had letter taken to the box and the trash can brought back to the garage
    • sent a bunch of local book club reminders
    • sent a science fair related email- have not heard back yet (since I think I mentioned that before)
    • texted with a friend- my PC order is in (she works at the allergy dr office we go to and asked her a question while I was at it!)


    So, I think I'll head out soon and pick up my stuff and maybe the billing in writing will be ready for my injection therapy. I don't want any surprises with my insurance company should I choose to pursue it. If it is too much right now, I won't be doing it.

    Then I can pick up some meds while I'm out there and do the campus pick up on the way back.

    For now, I will check in on what will be for dinner.

    Varmits - WE are not sure what they are. The first night we thought it may have been a bat that went in through the attic vent screen. But last night it sounded more like a squirrel or a mouse. Dan had been trying to catch them and see where they are coming in, but we haven't had any luck. He secured the vent screen and plugged up all the other holes he could find today. We have cedar siding so holes sometimes get created.

    Good Evening Ladies!
    We had a couple inches of snow last night. Softly falling. Very pretty. It has been melting off today, and right now we have light rain. Currently 35*F.

    We had a normal Monday of school with ds11 and tutoring for me. I also did the basic, daily chores. So nothing exciting going here.

    HeatherW-- You mentioned that book this morning, and I almost got it with my Kindle credits. It would have only been a couple dollars. But I decided to get the rest of the Green Ember series books instead.

    Michelle-- Glad you didn't fall or get left behind in the mud! I'm curious if you showed ds how to offer his arm to a lovely woman, rather than do the "police escort".

    Lindsey-- Good job getting ahead with organizing for the summer mission teams!

    Angela-- Sorry about the varmits. We had a bat come in our apartment once while dh was in seminary. Luckily, the maintenance man came and captured it in a box. He told us they can get through a hole the size of a dime. I hope you catch whatever it is.

    Dh took ds11 to choral practice and they should be getting home soon. Ds20 is downstairs watching basketball. It's quiet. I like it.

    Hello Ladies,

    It's 8:00 PM and I am on campus with ds18. His day here began at 9:30 and we will be leaving to go home at 9:30 PM. Could use a prayer for stamina, energy, and good use of my time at home. There are so many good things happening, but I miss my youngest on days like this. I do have a two hour break during his lab and during his law club meeting, so that helps.

    Angela- I hope you catch the rascal/rascals. We had a squirrel in our old house once! We caught him eating out of a can of nuts in our kitchen cupboard.

    Lindsey- you accomplished so much and your dinner sounded delicious!

    Michelle- I loved reading the story about your son making sure you made it to the car. Very sweet. You are a good mom! I need to take classes from you

    Robin- I must have missed something- an oxygen concentrator? Hope everything is okay!

    Paige- how sweet of you to save food for the neighbor's pigs! I am terrible about wasting food- trying to be better.

    Heather- I hope things work out with your insurance. The Valentine bookmark is such a good idea! I think I am making Valentines too this year. We have more snow coming tonight and the week is packed. Not sure when I'd get to the store -

    Cindy- glad you had a nice, normal day today!

    Shay- great job on the boxes and costume!

    I am home tomorrow until evening. Glad for that. Just have my volunteer night at ESL class. Hope to have some time with ds15, but he has class tomorrow afternoon. Maybe they will cancel with the snow that's coming. I would like to bake something and make the Valentines among other things. Ds18 heads to campus with dh tomorrow around noon.

    Have a good night, everyone!
