Yesterday we woke to the long awaited snow. The kids were out before my coffee, but, evil mom that I am, I had schoolwork out and waiting for when they came in wailing of the cold. Mid morning we took a walk with J, The Boy's friend from across the stree, and we didn't see him again until supper. We had a few brief minutes just now but I don't think it'll stick until this evening- I can still go to the library!
I',m alive and well. I've been hyper posting at semidailystartrek, which says that the future life I read about is more interesting than my own. Not surprising.
Wheeel of Candy
Another for the "Why I love homeschooling" category- just as we were settling down to bookwork, The Dungeon Master calls to tell me that the new See's Candy in the complex where he works is having a grand opening today. I hem and haw- Turbo woke me with a headache, I'm broke and low on gas, blah blah blah- he promised to pay me back and told me "There's a wheel with prizes". So we busted ass on the schoolwork and went to meet the DM at his lunch break. They started handing out the candy as we went in the door. And then, the wheel of candy- no cost to spin, every slot a winner, and the spinny guy made sure all the kids spun. The boys each got a 1 pound box, the girl an 8 oz box ( we bought her a wrapped heart candy to make up) and I scored a 2 pounder. We all picked some bulk candies, and got to eat two before coming home to lunch. The best part? The boy said when we got home, "Thanks for homeschooling us, because if we were in school we wouldn't have had the chance to spin the wheel of chocolates".

Happy New Year
Sorry I've been away so long- it's not even like busy has been an excuse.
Christmas was good. The Boy, with a combo of gift cards and Christmas cash bought a DS. KNowing this was his plan we bought him the new game Godzilla Unleashed, which he has declared the Coolest Game Ever.
We got HRH the Fairy Princess some books, which she liked but was dissapointed in the lack of toys. She spent her cash on a bunch of cheap, plastic Made In China Stuff. Augh.
Turbo got some Godzilla stuff-a toy Mecha-G and the entire Hanna Barbara series. Funky theme.
I got yarn money from The DM, and season 4 of DS9. I finished his socks and I'm finally making my Jayne hat- squee!
