Random 5

1. Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner. Okay, why do we all have to be involved in this? He/she is free to do whatever he/she wants. It is between him/her and God, and they apparently have a lot of work to be doing between them. Making it constantly my business is annoying. I don't want to be involved. It's not my business, and I do not care! I feel the same way about the issues with Josh Duggar. It's not my business, and shouldn't be. This is why I do not watch the news or read a newspaper or magazine or get too involved in the internet. I just don't want to know.

2. I am having a Netflix obsession right now. In conjunction with my do-absolutely-nothing-because-I-am-exhausted week, I watched the entire first season of When Calls the Heart and have now started the first season of Gilmore Girls.

3. On an unrelated t.v. note, I finally decided to make our bedroom my hang-out haven, so I had my son-in-law (that has a nice ring to it) move our basement Direct TV box and a spare t.v. into our bedroom armoire so that I can basically never leave my room again unless I have meals to prepare, laundry to do, or kids to teach. As I gazed out the bedroom window I decided that I needed to see something pretty out there, so today I bought a hanging basket of impatiens and am going to hang it right outside my window with one of my bird feeders. I might even plant a Japanese Red Maple right outside the window, too. I want to see pretty.

4. We decided against starting back to school this week. We needed a vacation from our vacation, and I needed to get too much done around the house. Besides, Brynne had volleyball camp each morning this week and I had some garage-saling to do today.

5. My mom and I go to a particular subdivision garage sale in Kansas City every year. This year it seemed a little duddish. But I did pick up a few good things. I scored on a brand new white Michael Kors jacket for $1.50, a cute denim tunic, and a cream puffy vest (I love puffy vests in the winter!). I got a few things for my house, including a bedside table, a small lamp, a wine rack, and a brand new Pampered Chef loaf pan for $2. (I'm going to make some banana bread tomorrow.) I picked up a few books for school this year, some Nike hoodies for Eli, a couple of Dora toys for my niece to keep here at my house to play with when she comes to visit, and a few other odds and ends. All-in-all it was a good day.


  1. I have been watching "When Calls the Heart Too"- after the boys go to bed. They don't love it as much as I do. I love it! Sounds like you scored pretty well on the garage sale. I could shop garage sales for hours around here and not come back with near that many good items. Enjoy your vacation from your vacation!

  2. Aren't we all too busy to worry about Hollywood hype? I know I am! LOL Your bedroom sounds relaxing! I actually have NO tv in my bedroom, just the laptop. (Sam took the TV for his room...) I just want quiet and calm...reading and crochet. Great finds at the yard sale!


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
