Reading Goals

We were going to start with a little bit of schooling today to gear up for our official re-start date on Monday. But .... they are playing so GOOD! And I have some additional housework I would like to get done to free up more of my weekend while Rick and Dawson's best friend, Antonio, are here. Sooooo ... we will resume school on Monday.

Instead I thought I would share my READING GOALS for 2013 ....

Yeah, there it is. Read. Just Read.

That's my goal. I love to read. I go through spurts. Right now I am really into it, and I am sure it's because I have more time now that the holiday activities are over. I tend to read a lot this time of year. Instead of making a GOAL, that I may or probably won't may not keep, I am going to focus on my ACCOMPLISHMENTS at the end of the year. I have a spiral for each of the kids where I keep track of every book they read. I'm just going to start one for myself.

Here's to a year of fun reading!!


  1. That's our plan for reading too! Following you from the crew!

  2. Yep! Nothing more needs saying: READ. LOL I'm trying to do more of that myself...and encourage the kids to do more. I've even started read alouds again!

  3. I want to read more this year too. I started out 2012 reading quite a bit, but April it all started to go downhill. Can't wait to hear about what you will be reading!

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat. The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions. But there are definitely downsides! The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one. The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs. Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday. He made an animal cell pizza ... and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ... He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!! I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

A Thomas Jefferson Education "This Week in History" ~ Schoolhouse Review

Talk about a GOLD MINE! A Thomas Jefferson Education's This Week in History by Rachel DeMille is her "labor of love" ... and I absolutely LOVE it!

For just $9.99 per month, you can log onto and click the "This Week in History" link to obtain many, many, many resources tied to specific events that occurred in the upcoming week in history.

Each week, I receive an email from Rachel DeMille that sets out each date of the coming week. Under the date, there are listed anywhere from one to several events that occurred in history on that date. THEN there are ALL kinds of things to do related to that event, such as books to read, websites to visit, ac
