This week has been extremely boring.LOL Nothing has happened. We just did the basics this week, cleaning, cooking, laundry, school work, and etc... I feel like I'm in a holding pattern waiting for this baby to arrive. Only 4 more weeks!

I don't know if it's the cold weather or what, but everyone under the age of 15 has been on an eating binge. You'd think I never fed them. This is not unusual for my older kids who could eat me out of house and home any day of the week but for my littles, I have to say I'm If I had to say what could be contributing to this, I would say locking up all the sweets may have been the main reason for them eating so well. I guess I never realized how much junk they got away with eating during the day, but now it's been reduced to NONE and they have found their long lost appetite. lol

Went to my dr's today. Everything is going well. Nothing exciting there other than that was the first time I've left the house since

Jon has caught a cold and I've quarantined him to his room. I had really hoped that the new medicine that he's on would be helping, but he's still catching everything and 10x worse than anyone else. It's so discouraging since there is so much we'd like to be doing with him and knowing that anything we did wouldn't last more than a couple of weeks before he'd be too ill to continue. I guess for now, we'll continue to pursue different medicines until we find something that works.

I'm going to make bread today, just to warm up the I'm sooooo cold up here. I'm trying not to set the heater up to 80 just so I can de-thaw and I'm hoping the hot oven will make a dent in my frozen hands and It SO doesn't help that it's still 80 down in Miami right now.lolol

I bought Homeschool Tracker on a whim and I'm horribly overwhelmed. I think it'd take me months to add in all the info that it's asking for. I'm sure that I don't need to add in everything but it just seems so I'm thinking that I may just hire Lee from SHS to do it all for me. Really, I prefer teaching over the whole recordkeeping business. It's just that my traditional paper and pencil way of doing things just won't cut it for high school

I found out the kids have earned at least 1/2 a credit in Culinary Arts or Home Ec so far this year for their high school records. If they keep up the work, they'll have a whole credit. Pretty cool!

Well, I guess I'd better get to work. My hands are freezing!lol

4 more weeks, wow that's great! Glad to hear that all is going well.

Sorry to hear about Jon's cold. That must be so frustrating, if only there was some medicine that would help him better/quicker.

I have a friend who loves the homeschool tracker. I felt hopelessly confused when I looked at it.

Yep! I'm in the home stretch. The dr doesn't think I'll last that long but I think it's more wishful thinking.lolol

It is frustrating. We've been trying to help him be healthy since he was 3.

I don't know what I'm going to do about that It seems way more complicated than what I was expecting. I wish I had more time to spend figuring it out. Perhaps, during the 2am baby feedings that are coming up.lolol

I've been praying for you and Trevor and I'm hoping that things are going better for you both right now.
