It’s still me

Do you like the change? I got a bee in my bonnet this morning and decided that I couldn’t stand the old look of the blog anymore and it was time for something new. I usually change my blog design in January with the new year, but the start of the new school year counts for that, I think. Anyway, out with the old, in with the new.

It seems like all I ever post about anymore is homeschool, but honestly, it’s what I’m thinking about 85% of the time. What do I think about the rest of the time? (Not what 100-85 is, that’s for sure.) I’m constantly going over our schedule, tweaking it, trying to sort out what would work better.

Today we added in a cooking class for the first time- it’s going to be an every other week kind of thing, and the girls had a really good time. They made cupcakes.

The teaching space is adorable, the teacher was nice, and the kids were all well behaved.

Then we went to sign the girls up for their dance/gymnastics classes (Z =gymnastics, Tiny=dance) and discovered that the class starts tomorrow instead of next week, like I thought. So that makes tomorrow a bit busier than I had planned. It’s a constant flux around here.

And now my biggest question is what to read. I’m in the middle of The Hundred Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais, the story of an Indian boy who moves with his restauranteur family from India to England to France. It’s filled with great descriptions of places and food, and I feel like I should be more invested in it than I am. Should I move on to something else? Like The Scarlet Pimpernel, the book I should be reading for book club? Probably. Will I? Who knows?

That’s all I’ve got for now, other than some quick personal messages to people I’m not sure check in on comments after they’ve made them 🙂 :

Gina, it delights me to no end that you read my blog. Yours cracks me up on a regular basis, and I kind of feel like I know you, so it makes me happy to think that you kind of know me too.

Ana, oh, I miss you so much. I will send you an e-mail one of these days, it’s just that every time I go to start it I know it will become epic, and, well, I’m lazy. But I love you and think about you all the time.

Everyone else, I love you too, and thanks for reading. 🙂 Leave me a comment and I’ll post something to you too! 🙂

  1. Love the new colorful banner thingy at the top!!!! So cute! The cooking class sounds really fun…especially since it is in someone else’s kitchen. Gotta love that!

  2. Brandy on

    I will never stop recommending The Year of Magical Thinking, so you best get on that Maryanne 🙂
