Starflower -- yummm, homemade popcorn! I'd so love to watch a movie tonight, but I have a translation to work on. Slacking off as I write this.... Well, I'm actually stumped on a word, so I'm here to prevent my brain from straining too hard, don't want to get a headache dontcha know.

Hey Jenneology! I never quite mastered sleeping when the baby sleeps when DS was little. Shoula, coulda, woulda. Congrats on the M.Ed and baby!

It's 3 am here, I'm the only one up. My dad is coming over for lunch tomorrow, which means I have to be on top of it in the morning (tidying up and cooking and such).

Must stop reading and posting and reading and posting.......

It's ten to five in the morning here. I haven't slept yet. I don't think I'm going to, either. Insomnia sucks. :

Same here. DS had us up at 8:30 this morning (technically yesterday morning.) I'm going to head to bed and read for a bit. Hopefully I'll doze off.

I'm still here still doing the same things. Baking for my boys' lunches and banking for the business.

I went to bed at 4am teh day before yesterday then went to bed and couldn't sleep. Up at 10 this morning didn't help and here I am again at 2.30....

I have a codl that no-one else in the house has and I feel really stuffed up so I don't really want to lie down any time soon.

Motheringdotcrack here I come or maybe patternreview and sewing blogs:

When I have that going on, I find that a very steamy shower helps both relax me and clear my sinuses. Then I might be able to sleep for a bit.

Hope you're feeling better orangefoot. That's the worst thing about colds for me, the lying down and not being able to breathe part.

DS is slowly transforming into a diurnal child, yep, he started pre-school today. I had to get him up at 8 and he feel asleep at 10pm. Getting up early sure is exhausting!

my husband disagrees with me, but that is one of the reason why I too lean towards homeschool, and a reason why the 2 yr old who wants to go to school so bad, doesn't.

Any ideas on how to describe home and what we do as school?

there's reams of information about how to describe just hanging out at home and living a normal, happy, free life as "school" - check out the unschooling board on MDC, or PM me and I can point you towards some good resources (even books, links that can convince most doubtful DHs that homeschooling is the best option )

This cold is only just passing now. Yuck. I haven't had a cold for years but this one got me good. Everyone else is still healthy!

My dd isn't a morning person either and that is a big part of why she doesn't go to school. I don't tell people that though. She was not liking school and school wasn't really liking her unschooling seemed a natural move to us. Dd2 won't be going to school either but they have a whale of a time playing what they think is 'school' behind the sofa. My boys who are 12 and 16 go to school so we sit uncomfortably in that camp too.

Fortunately my dh is not doubtful about home schooling at all so I wasn't up against anything in making the choice - apart from society I've found way more like minded and interesting people in the home ed community than I ever have in the school community so it works well for me too.

I hate not sleeping. Honestly, if I had millions of dollars with which to manipulate personal physicians, I'd probably ask for Propfol too. I have to find out what's wrong with me, it's very very depressing not to be able to sleep without drugs. I finally gave up trying to rest tonight and just took the pills. Is it asking too much to be able to sleep without them, and without getting pregnant again? Even with them, I probably won't get six hours... and that just adds insult to injury. Ugh!

Sorry to be such a downer, I'm seriously losing my mind.
