Calvin: Faces

Happy Tuesday!

SG took the MacBook to work today, so I am posting from his iMac. Weird - not used to the wireless keyboard. Anyway....

1. H, I hear ya on the blog thing, but...I'm lazy and really don't want to keep up 2 blogs. I don't think there's a way to limit the posting by I'm going to think about this. For the moment, I'll leave the blog page up.....I might delete it later. I'm not sure how important it is, we'll see.

As for it going direct to the home page instead of the soap page.....yeah, but most of the soap sites I've visited (not counting etsy) do the same thing. Again, for the moment, I'll leave it - but I might add a "Soap" button.

1a. I slapped together a "goats" page last night, with photos of our does. I need to find decent photos of this year's kid crop, and I need to add photos of the bucks, but at least you can *see* the goaties now.

2. Attn HS'ers! Homeschool Buyers Co-op has a deal with The Great Courses. IF you go thru the co-op, you get 10% off, plus smartpoints that can be redeemed on other goodies. You can't stack discounts (so if you're on TGC's mailing list, you might be able to get a larger discount sometimes), but it's good for when you don't have a code. And the 10% works with the SALE PRICES, too! :happy dance: (SG just had me order him their new Photography course - $7.00 off helps!)

3. Turkey day is coming, so let the baking commence. Today is bread for Himself - he wants to make some herbed bread sticks. Tomorrow is Pie Day (Pumpkin/Pecan/Chocolate Peanut Butter)...this is going to be bad for my hips, I think.

3a. I did the Bellydance Fusion: Pilates workout today. I didn't know it was an hour.....and I didn't know how *intense* it was. I managed to do about 75% of it....and my abs are SORE. I think I figured out belly rolls....but I can't do them yet. I can't isolate my upper abs (bottom of ribcage) just yet. But I can work on it. And I will....because I am liking what is happening to my abs. :grin:

4. Short week this week - we are still schooling, but on a limited basis. My kids do better if we do SOME school every day - breaks don't work so well here. (Winter visits to Granny, while good for the kids, wreak havoc on our schooling - I have to spend another week/week-and-a-half in reminding them what they already know. Ah, well - it's really no big deal, right? Right.)

Need to go clean the kitchen before starting school - laters!
