I’m sure if I just smack myself upside the head a couple of times something will fall out onto the screen. I’m having one of those why do I blog moments. It’s not like anyone outside a handful of friends reads here. Oh well, I amuse me anyway.
School planning is going on a little late because I wasn’t sure if we were going to be able to continue homeschooling this year. We’re in a bit of a financial crisis and it looked as though I might need a government sponsored babysitter in order for me to try to make ends meet. I have nothing against public school, and I do think we’ll transition that way eventually, but it’s nice to have it be a choice instead of something one must do in order to eat.
Because our schedule is so restricted, one day last week I drove all over town looking for early morning work in a bunch of chains/franchises. Of course they all told me to apply online and of course I got nary a call or email back. Let that be a lesson to you. Be cool, stay in school. I can’t even get a job at McDonald’s.
Anyhoo, we’re holding it together for one more year. Let’s see what happens.
So, I sent off our letters of intent to homeschool this morning and now I’m going through the NYS educational requirements for each grade and making sure I have everything covered. Then I’ll fill in with some cool literature. And then I’ll spend the money.
