Thursday, quiet Thursday

Wow, I realized it's been nearly a week since I updated!  Sorry.  I have no new pictures and nothing is baking at the moment, either.  I did notice that I haven't put up any more "Bitter Homeschooler" funnies, so here you go:

4 Don't assume that every homeschooler you meet is homeschooling for the same reasons and in the same way as that one homeschooler you know.

5 If that homeschooler you know is actually someone you saw on TV, either on the news or on a "reality" show, the above goes double.

10 We didn't go through all the reading, learning, thinking, weighing of options, experimenting, and worrying that goes into homeschooling just to annoy you. Really. This was a deeply personal decision, tailored to the specifics of our family. Stop taking the bare fact of our being homeschoolers as either an affront or a
judgment about your own educational decisions.

17 Stop saying, "Oh, I could never homeschool!" Even if you think it's some kind of compliment, it sounds more like you're horrified.  One of these days, I won't bother disagreeing with you any more.

This Saturday is "Coupons and Cocktails" at my house again.  I have a TON of coupons (and Mike's Hard drinks) ready to share with everyone.  I will, once again, be making lots and lots of pizza.  I better start running now. 

Tuesday is not only Cinco de Mayo (ole!) but it's also Kali's 6th birthday!  SIX!  I get to spend the whole day at Epcot with her while the rest of the gang heads over to Sea World.  Hey, it's not 'free on your birthday' if you have to pay for everyone to get in, right?  We have passes for Sea World, so that really is free!  Kali cannot wait to go to Epcot.  This is my girl who could give a rats rear end about the rides, she wants to learn all about the countries that are there and wants to taste all the different foods, too.  I told her that we'd eat our way through the countries.  Once I start running for that pizza, I better not stop!  I'm certain to have tons of pictures when we get back.  She is determined to stay there all day until the fireworks that night.

Speaking of running, I'm now up to 4 miles without wanting to kill someone.  While we're out in Orlando, I'll be enjoying my morning run right through Downtown Disney; I'm quite excited about that! 

I'm off to the kitchen to work on dinner now!
