I Love Being Tagged...
Especially by Hula!! I feel so special that I have ignored it for several days while I threatened my children with bodily harm, told them horrible stories about PUBLIC SCHOOL and then threatened to send them there. Yes, I have certainly been behaving very badly and I harbor no ill will to public school. I really don't. Never have. I have been harboring ill will towards my children though. They are in desperate need of your prayers and maybe one or two for me as well. Thankfully I have a hubby who quietly and calmly offered me a suggestion for school that just might bring about the attitude adjustment someone has been needing- an "alone cone" for you Dragontales fans. A little independent study away from the rest of us is just what Mommy needs but could not think of in her present state of hot flaming ??? I'm not sure what I would call it but this tween thing is making me a little frustrated. Homeschooling sort of requires a certain mindset from all parties involved and hers has thrown mine out-of-whack. Rnat over. Thanks for "listening".
