Ooh, I’ve been quiet, yes? It’s been a month or so of slight craziness combined with winter yuck. I’m in a making-things-happen period, and much of that has little to do with homeschooling. For sake of an update, here’s what’s been going on around here:

  • Eldest is teaching ‘ukuele lessons twice a week. One session for two 7-year-old kids, the other for a 50+ year old man. I think that’s funny. His ‘ukulele website is nearing half a million hits, too, and he’s starting to look into finding advertisers. I think that’s cool.
  • Youngest is in a manic Lego mode, building all kinds of vehicles and has discovered this site where he can upload his creations.
  • I’ve got one Destination Imagination team this year, with tournament happening in ten days or so. My garage is filled to overflowing with cardboard, duct tape, PVC pipe, and paint.
  • Husband is laid off, which leads me to be ever more manic about finding work for ME.
  • I just finished an article for Parents magazine that will be out in June. My editor was funny and enjoyable to work with, which is always good.
  • I’m in the process of creating two different partnerships with other writers to create two new and exciting projects that I will be telling you about soon!
  • I fear that I am finally going to have to succumb to bifocals, as removing splinters is becoming increasingly difficult.
  • I’m expanding my garden area to grow more this summer, and anxiously awaiting springtime.
  • After reading ‘The Untold Story of Milk’ I’m buying unhomogenized milk in glass jars. If I could find raw milk, I’d be drinking that. Worth a read!

    So good to hear from you—thanks for the update.
    Will you post a link to the uke website? I think it’s very cool!

    Kris, I’ll go get bifocals first if that will make it easier for you to do so. My kids think it is hilarious that I have to take my glasses off to see things up close. That and my gray hair just crack them up on a daily basis, the brats. :)

    Loved this post, by the way. Nice to catch up on those random little things with you!

    I am sorry that your hubby is still unemployed, but it sounds like you have several intriguing projects on the horizon. And the kids are busy and thriving!
