First, did you see American Idol tonight?
I am so embarrassed for Ke$ha. Hello, Sitting Bull called and wants his headdress back. She should definitely stick to the studio. Live performances are NOT her friend. It was an absolute train wreck. And yet I couldn't NOT watch it.
I am happy to tell you that I think one of my hamsters has finally been put to rest.
PETA, if you are reading this I don't literally mean "hamster". No animals were harmed in the blogging of this post.
I think we've made our decision regarding homeschooling. It's a GO! It's amazing what a huge burden has been lifted just knowing that we have a plan. And events this past weekend about which I am being purposely vague served as confirmation that we've made a good decision. I am now excitedly researching ninth grade curriculum and thinking about lesson plans. I. AM. SO. GIDDY.
Anybody out there have any suggestions on high school curriculum? I don't want to spend a lot so I've already ixnayed pretty much any of the DVD curricula. A Beka Grammar & Composition comes highly recommended by my bestie. And I have to tell you that grammar and literature are my FAVORITE subjects so I am psyched about finding Literature curriculum that I love. And, yes, I love grammar. I love diagramming sentences. I am a loser. I was an English major for a while and almost had enough hours for a degree in English before I switched to Accounting. I knew I didn't want to teach so I really didn't know what I would do with an English degree. Now accounting--that one is obvious. You do accounting. End of story. Have I mentioned that I am also practical? My accounting degree has served me well, lo these many years, and now my almost-English degree will too!
Oh, and I really need to talk to you about this health care debacle that is taking place this week. More on that later...unless I'm busy building a bunker and stocking it with canned goods.
