I've moved

Due to technical difficulties and I don't want to pay to keep my blog going, I have moved it to another server.
I am still working out the bugs and learning how it all works.  I don't like these kind of things.
I have been with Blogger for YEARS and feel so comfortable here.
Yet their latest changes have me baffled.

So, please come and visit me on my new blog.

What's up with Blogspot?

Okay, since my last blog post something about Blogspot has changed. 
I can't even upload one photo without having to pay for an upgrade? 
And what is with the Picasa do I access my supposed account?

Anyone else having this problem?

Halloweenish Catch Up

For those of you who may not know, we don't really do Halloween.
But here are some Halloween photos for you...

Son did this all on his own...pretty good.

The kids went to a late after Halloween Halloween Party.  I had fun with son's make-up.

The Morning After Confessions (not as juicy as it sounds)

(This is a pretty random post, and yet it is all related.)

Okay, well, two mornings after.
I have to confess that I went to bed a bit heavyhearted the night of the elections.
I got up the next morning and decided that Obama may be stealing getting more of our money but he isn't going to steal my joy!  I had a great time reading my bible and praying.
Then it was off for my pre-breakfast, pre-kids waking up, pre-...well you get the idea walk/jog.  It felt great.  I felt great all day.

Something happened that night when I went to bed, reading about how a woman with a learning disability changed her brain...good read.  Something got resparked (is that even a word?).  Don't know what clicked, but I got re-energized for homeschooling again.

I confess, I was feeling pretty burned out from teaching.  High school kicks my butt!  Most home schooled high schoolers can pretty  much school themselves at this point.  (How's that for fitting in as many "school" words in as possible?)  Well, not so in our house.  I was this close (can you see my fingers?) to sending him back to public school...this close.  He was not a happy camper.  Alas, I have come up with a new plan.  We are sticking with the current distance learning, and I am adding a heap of work onto his day and mine.  We have just begun this and I am already behind on my "chores".  Why oh why does this happen every time I regroup?

So, at the end of this journey, our homeschool journey, our journey with four more years with Obama, both of our kids will be graduated and able to vote.  Me, I may be starting all over with our "new" kids.  Anybody got an few extra brain cells I could have...maybe that's covered in Obamacare.
