A month without a computer. I feel like I have been living under one of these:
If you've never gone that long without access to the Internetz, you should try it sometime. Especially if you homeschool your kids. And especially if you don't have a 'smart phone'. Talk about kickin' it old school...we actually had to use BOOKS to learn stuff around here.
Anyhoo, in the past month I have had a few noteworthy firsts.
1. Got stung by a stingray at the beach. Thankfully I had on those ugly water shoes, but the tip of the stinger penetrated the mesh and although it just broke the skin...it really hurt.
2. Literally saw 5 million jellyfish on the beach. And in the water. Not sure if it was some crazy spawning mass suicide, but it made us all play in the sand for a day or two.
3. Taught a book club class yesterday. Which, honestly, had me all vaklempt. I was so nervous. Kids are a tough crowd, man. They don't care-they will yawn in your face if they don't think you are interesting! (But I brought Swiss Cake Rolls for a snack, so I am the coolest book-club-mom ever.)
4. Have instituted an Early Bird boot camp around here after finding my kids wanting to snooze in the bed until 9:00 every morning. We now have alarm clocks set for 7:00 am, they are responsible for making their own breakfast every morning and we are ready for school at 8:30. So far so good. (I know most of you probably already do this...but it's new for us. )
How about you all? What's new with you?
