The Weekly Ramble

The weekly ramble: where I blog like it’s 2004.


FishPapa and I just got back from a 36-hour trip to Ontario, CA. Not, Ontario, Canada, but Ontario, California. We took our two teenagers, FishBoy13 and FishBoy17 to the Great Homeschool Convention [4]. I’ll be sharing more on Monday, but I’ll say now that it was great. I not only got to visit with two readers (Hi Beth! Hi Alicia!) but I also got to see local friends as well as catch up with Sarah and Tami, both friends from different parts of the state.

Last night FishBoy13 and I saw a great comedy show while FishBoy17 and FishPapa watched the nail biter of a hockey game. The Kings won the Stanley Cup AGAIN, my people! Yay!

It was a great weekend in so many ways. I hope that I can process it all tonight and tomorrow and be able to share my thoughts coherently. I’m renewed in this amazing journey teaching my kids at home and feel a burst of energy to school through the summer. I kinda took a break in May so it feels like we’ve already had a bit of a break.

I just spent the last hour or so ordering books online since the vendors weren’t selling what I wanted or weren’t offering discounts. Bummer for them. CBD got my business this year — and my $400.

Meanwhile, here’s what’s been happening on Life as MOM:
