Claimed 100 Percent

Apparently, my MIL is the whole reason why we have a very curious little daughter, who wanted to learn about everything and anything she lays her eyes on. DH and I have nothing to do at all about her personality. (eyes rolling) She can't wait for someone else to praise her on what she did for her. The more I know here the more I'm starting not liking her.

She was our baby sitter on the first six-month of life, let's make that four months of her life. I went back to work when she was 2 or 3 months old. Mind you, she refused to change her clothes because I do not put it out and tell her which clothes she needs to wear for that day. I told showed her which drawers are her but her argument was she don't want to go on someone else drawers. So, she rather left her soaking yet clothes the whole day while I was at work.

I will agree that she talked a lot to the kids, but how much will they learn from that age? She also claimed that she always held her everywhere she goes, and oh that's why she (DD) feel off the couch a few times. She said that she turned away for a second and the next thing she heard was a boomed. Yea right, I bet her that she totally forgot about her on the couch, and I remind her not to leave her on it. Just put her on the floor where she can roll and do whatever and not to worry about falling.

I also hated it when she feed her and not even bothering holding her in her arms. She just put a pillow under her head and let the poor kid try sucking on air because she doesn't know how to hold a baby bottle yet the correct way. She hardly wiped her face after eating and has dry milk all over her face when I get home in the afternoon. She held her like she is holding a 1 year old kid. I would think that you will hold a baby so delicately.

I know this whole post is pathetic, I feel despair because she was claiming that she was the perfect sitter. She was also claiming that home schooling was not an option when her kids are little. Did she even watched the old show that the kids never went to school and their mother's are the one responsible for their education? How can she claim that she doesn't know about it? What I think is she refuses to get stuck with her kids while her husband was at work. And every summer she sent her kids away in some camp and claimed that she wrote them a letter everyday and reminded them on how much she misses them. Oh my the lies, and she also claimed to be very religious. So, white lies are not a sin for her. We all know that every mother/parents can educate their own kids at home, then and now.

DH and I just let it go because we are afraid that his father will hear all of it if we make her mad. We always thought of her as missing some screws and arguing to her about stuff like that will make her loss some more. Why is it so hard to for people to understand the right and wrong. It depends on an individual is not suffice. Wrong is still wrong and right is still right however you present it, isn't it? Just thinking about the whole thing is making my back hurt again, ugh.

Life of Ours Update

Can I just say "brrrr" today? When I woke up my PC this morning it was 13°F. Around noon, I saw my weather again it reads 11°F. I would think that having the sun out it should be warmer and now at almost 8pm it reads 9°F! It is single digit right now outside of my house and very windy. I also wanted to say that we finally turn on our propane heater downstairs in our master bedroom. We have a water bed, and we are only using the heater with the water bed to keep us warm since late October. It sure saved us, two tank fillings and that is about $700.

I drag my DD out in the cold this afternoon to return the DVD I borrowed from the library last Thursday. I was looking for the pilot of "Little house on the prairie" but they don't have it. I just grab the oldest one I could find that day. While there I grabbed 4 other DVD's to watch while we are on vacation. The catching up thing with DD is not working. Instead of stressing about it, I just let it go. I needed rest and vacation and DH agree that we should take some time off. And here I am, updating my blogs.

DD and YDS had a doctor appointment yesterday, different time. DD was in the morning and YDS in the afternoon, in different offices. I like doing their appointments when there are no classes. I don't like stopping and going somewhere in the middle of our lessons. We always end up finishing late when we go somewhere. It also helps that DH is home for the winter. He can always bring any of them on their appointments, and I can stay home to teach the others.

Oh yes, I made my very first homemade pizza. DH said that it needed more sauce and cheese. The next time I make one I'll make sure that I put enough sauce and cheese in them. Now I need to work with my cinnabon. I wanted to accomplish this two things before we go back to school on January 4th. I have finished one and one more to go. Wish me luck!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
I did not join the sky watch today because there is not much where I am today. Pretty gray sky and there is no texture at all. Days like these make me wish to celebrate my Christmas in the tropic. Only SIL and her husband came to visit today. No big dinner with all the trimmings. My kids and DH has been eating sweets since this morning. I guess that is the best way to get rid of all the sweets I made.

I'll be taking a nap pretty soon, enjoy the rest of your Christmas. And enjoy the family today.

Last Day of School

My two cyber schoolers last day is today. They will be off until January 3rd. Then my ODS last day is tomorrow along with my kindergartners in another cyber school. We will not actually getting off but I will now change the schedule until next week. I will give them some days off this week but I will still do some lessons with them. Mostly the core lessons to go ahead and to catch up with DD. She needed at least 130 hours to catch up.

I plan on teaching her 5 core lessons a day. Maybe two math lessons and the other three will be Language arts and Phonics. For my 3rd grader will be 1 lesson a day from the core subjects. And my Kinder will also be 1 lesson a day between phonics, LA and FastForWord. He got some writing to do that is due when he return on January 4th and that would be part of our daily lessons too.

With the schedule above, I'm hoping we have plenty of time to go to the library and watch movie together as a family for a week and a half. Not to mention that they will probably go out a lot and play on the snow and slide down our little hill. And hubby is home most of the time, family togetherness even for a short period of time is always a plus. I may even bake some cinnabon from scratch. I really wanted to try to make my own this time with a homemade pizza too.

Ok, I think that is plenty enough for our Christmas vacation. I also planning on resting most of the time. So, we will see...lol.

Working Outside in the Storm

Yes, we have another snow storm today. It started early in the afternoon, the grocery stores are packed again this morning when I went out. I tried to get out there early to beat the rush but they all have the same idea to come out early too. I hate shopping when the grocery stores are crowded. I can't take it.

DH is out making some money from the storm. He will not come home until it is over and every customer is plowed. I packed him, some snacks and plenty of coffee. The coffee will not be enough but Wawa is everywhere and open 24 hours. He also bought a water proof boot today to stay warmer.

He will be very tired when he gets done and probably will sleep all day tomorrow. Yes, someone has to shovel and plow snow. And one of them is DH. Keep warm DH. The bad thing about it, our driveway is always the last one to get plowed because he does it when he gets home.

Early Christmas Greeting


With about ONE week before Christmas

REMEMBER: Jesus is Better than Santa

Santa lives at the North Pole.
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year
JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies
JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited
JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters your heart.
You have to stand in line to see Santa
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, What's your name?"
JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly
JESUS has a heart full of love.
All Santa can offer is HO HO HO
JESUS offers health, help and hope.
Santa says "You better not cry"
JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.
Santa's little helpers make toys
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.
Santa may make you chuckle but
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.
While Santa puts gifts under your tree
JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.
It's obvious there is really no comparison.
We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
We need to put Christ back in Christmas.
Jesus is still the reason for the season.

May the Creator Bless and Watch over you and your loved ones this Christmas 2009
And may He prosper and bless the work of your hands in the New Year.

We Told The Kids The Truth

I know plenty of parents will not agree to what we did but hey we may as well start while they are young. Not to mention I can care less what other parents does about the whole celebration in about nine days.

Our oldest is nine years old and our youngest is three. We both know that the youngest one will never understand but, we both know he will catch on. We (DH and I) that we will not celebrate Christmas with a Santa Claus. We like them to know that Christmas is not about gifts, Santa, and Christmas Tree. Rather as a celebration when our Savior was born. We still have gifts for them but not gifts from Santa anymore. But gifts from us because we like them to have it.

I was never brought up to believe about Santa and gifts anyway. I rather have my old tradition put into works with ours. DD already opened one of her present and all my boys wanted to wait until Christmas to open theirs. Yes, we gave them a choice to open the gifts early or wait.

I was brought up to go to church early Christmas morning. We always have plenty of food and delicacies to munch on. And what I like the most was visiting every family member to catch up on things, chats, singing Christmas Carols and just simply hanging out (and eating...lol). Meeting plenty of cousins (2nd, 3rd, 4th, and so on). Listening to old people telling stories way back when, on how they survive not having technology and other things that we can't live without now a days. Common law was widespread back then.

I want my kids to at least appreciate what they have now and to learn to be grateful. I don't want them to grow up believing with none-sense that was brought up by the corporation to earn money. We are not religious and we don't have religion but we believe in spirituality. We believe in the bible and we don't like calling "God" god because it spells Dog backwards. We call them our "Creator or the High Almighty". Bible has been written so many times and we think that someone somewhere trying to sabotage the name of our Creator. Then we come to the word LIVE, and you know what that means when written the other way.

Why did GOD become DOG and the bad become LIVE? What are they trying to say with this words? That GOD is and will always act like dogs and the EVIL will and always be LIVELY/LIVING and live forever? I refused to acknowledge the two, I believe the CREATOR and the High Almighty.

A Lot of People Still Doesn't Know

DH and I was very surprise that one of his friends still doesn't know about the "global warming" was/is a hoax. We are pretty sure that they will come up of something next to get other people believe in it. DH knew all about this since it started a long time ago. Even his mother who is somewhat awake talks about this thing that she never likes people cutting trees. Ok, tree lover what do you have to say now. Well, that is what I call her inside my head. I can't really answer back to her because I feel bad for her husband. When she gets going/arguing about these things she gets mad at him, and he will hear it all the way to their house and even until they go to sleep.

Are people these days needing something to believe in and are so brain wash that they can't think for themselves? They believe so many lies, and they also spread such lies. And I bet you they will still argue that the North Pole is still melting. Do you mean that the North Pole or South Pole should stay frozen forever? Our world is very old and climate change so much. Did you get it, "IT CHANGES EVERYDAY"? Go right ahead and take care of our environment, but don't you ever tax me for it.

CARBON TAX my behind. We need carbon dioxide to inhale oxygen, do you know that? Without carbon dioxide, there will be no oxygen. Get over it people, if you really want something to believe in, try believing the high power, the high Almighty, the creator, the common law. Then only then you can talk to me about what you believe.

What A Sunday Morning

My youngest DS woke up around 5:30 in the morning. I don't blame him because he went to bed on time which was around 8:00pm last night. I always bring him to the bathroom right after waking up. Then I tried putting him back to sleep. Oh, did I mention I have a headache when I woke up? Yes, I drunk plenty of water and I tried going back to sleep.

Now it is 10:20 am my headache is just starting to go away. After water I drunk some coffee or maybe I should eat breakfast too. However, I am not hungry at this point. It did not help either that DH can not function in the morning when our kids asked him to get something for them. I tried not to talk too much when I have a pounding headache and he never like it. Everything he needs to do have to run to me first and asked me how to do it.

This will fall into a frustration in my side. Did I mention he can not function without consulting me first. Trying not to think too much does not work because of what I mention above. He lives here and the way it's going he does not know where everything is and he does not like looking for it without talking. The way he is doing things, it just added more to my headache.

How can a mother with a headache or even a sick mother can have a peace and quiet? Don't ask me, I can never figure that out yet. Maybe if I place myself on the roof of the house with the 25°F weather outside will do it. Instead of him cooking me breakfast I have to do it myself. Isn't being a queen of my household great. My household can not function without me. I wonder what he will do if I drop dead one day. Go out and find a replacement right away I guess.

It's Snowing

It's snowing here today. No one is coming to my 9 year old birthday party. DH is also glad because he is not working for anyone because of the event. However, I guess we can order pizza and have a party just for the whole family. Who needs other people when there are seven of us...lol.

Anyway, here is my forecast today. This is not my exact location because I can't find one. This one is about 45 minutes away from me. However, we are having snow too.

What a day, my photobucket account exceeded its bandwidth and all of my blogs were very messy yesterday. I had to delete all, well most of the image links and start over again. Anyway, most of them are up and running as usual now. But let me tell you they are pain in my behind. Thanks goodness for CSS this blog was not affected much.

So, here is my Sky Watch images for today. The second image I captured the sun coming up this morning and there is an airplane (white line up in the sky) too (click the 2nd image to enlarge). I just saw it when I view the picture in my computer.

Happy 9th Birthday

Wow, how time fly. This was him when he was 1 year old. He was born two weeks early. I was on labor for 11 and 1/2 hours with him. I was home the whole 11 hours thinking I was having false labor. Half hour spend driving to Hackettstown Hospital and as soon as they put me into the labor and delivery room he came out about 10 minutes later. He was born very close to December 3rd. He had to stay for a week after he was born in the hospital and so much doctors appointment within the first month. Everything went well and this picture was the proof.

DS#2 @ 1And this one is taken just a few minutes ago. He did make the cut off date in school that is why he is still in 3rd grade. Other kids who are born in 2000 is already in 4th grade. I really don't mind because he is little for his age. Not to mention me and DH are little too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR JR.

DS#2 now
BTW, he is requesting not to do school today because it's his birthday. I kept telling him that when he used to go to our local school he still goes to school on his birthday. I think he just wanted not to do anything today.

Weekend Update "In This Life of Ours"

Almost like a week update that is. What a week! Two days of school, then house cleaning most of the time. SIL new husband and two of her kids came to our Thanksgiving Dinner. Too much food for only 9 adult. Wasted and went to the garbage. I wish I can cook something for thanksgiving that I know everyone will eat. But since it was thanksgiving I have to make the traditional meal which half of the attendees never liked to begin with. MIL ate a spoonful of yam and the smallest piece of turkey she could get her hand on.

Friday morning DH tried his luck with the flat TV on sale at Target but came home empty handed because he saw the parking lot packed. We bought one online instead along other stuff we wanted. The items have free shipping and we don't even have to fight the crowds of hungry buying people and most likely will charge everything they got on black Friday or all the gifts for Christmas.

Saturday was fun, fellow political friends came with food and I don't have to cook anything. I kinda feel bad when they started cleaning up my kitchen. Some of them forgot food and containers, they will get it back (containers) when we see each other again. I got to know most of ladies and had talk to them longer this time. One of them use to live where I used to work. I thought she lives more North, since she don't want to tell me where she live at earlier meetings. We are all pretty conservative about everything however, we don't call ourselves that. We past that stage and we are way, way to the right now.

Sunday my family went to get some raw milk again (our second time) at the farm our friend told us two weeks ago. We also bought 2 dozen brown eggs, I'm hoping we can finish it for a week to give him a regular business once a week. We would like him to stay in business because we take his word and our friend word that they are using all natural feeds for the animals. Grass feed for cows, milked twice a day only and they don't empty the milk sacs when they do it. Free range chickens with natural feeds. The only missing for him to be called organic is the papers. He is not willing to pay a hefty price for a piece of paper. I don't blame him, if I have a farm I will do it either.

School day again, this holidays will mess up our schedule and my kids will be in vacation mode (again) until January. I will try not to think of it too much because I have enough stress to deal with. More shopping to do online for free shipping. The items that we can't get a free shipping have to be bought in the store. I hate shopping this time of year and I don't like shopping early just to hide the gifts.

Anyway, I think that is long enough update. No one reads this posts so I better shut up now...:P Have a great week everyone.

Looking at the Sky on Friday

I took this on Tuesday while my kids are outside playing. I was supposed to pick up my ODS from his chess practice but my mini-van's battery was dead. Remember I mentioned on Sunday going to the new known farmer? Yup, when we got back DH was lighting a cigarette before getting out of the van and he forgot to turn the key to off. Yes, we leave our car keys inside the car. No the car was not running but radio and other things can run without turning the engine on. I could not even hear any click meaning the battery was dead-dead. Anyway, here are sky photos while I was watching DC outside.

Half MoonBelow is my very first airplane captured on camera. This time they are passing closer than before and I was able to take a picture of about 10 of them while outside. They all look the same and I picked this one for this entree. Please click the pictures to see the airplane and half moon better.

AirplaneDid anyone of you lined up at your local store to buy something this morning? I can never do it, I hate the crowds and I will never run over someone just to get what I wanted. I have no patience and I think I will get into a fight when someone pass me in line.

We Are Officially on Thanksgiving Vacation

We are home and not going anywhere. My kids was so excited today because our last day of school for this week. They all wake up early and even started by themselves and went through the optional lessons. I love it, I only have to work a little with their lessons today. They even did their hand writing with out me reminding them to do it. They are good to me today.

DH and I tackled the kitchen, living room and dining over the weekend and he did a great job too. He did the hard stuff and I did the re-arranging part. The only thing need cleaning is the bathrooms, however one organize bathroom will be find.

The classroom need some arranging too. I bet my kids will have to show all the other kids where they go to school. I need to organize it, and put everything where they belong.

Ok, I need a nap if I can and I have to start organizing and of course our dinner tonight. I better start early to finish early and get to bed on time and start early again tomorrow. Is your turkey in the fridge yet? You better take it out of the freezer and put it into the fridge. You may have to cook a frozen turkey if your don't. Then again if you have a fresh one you don't have to worry about it.

Do you have everything you need? I don't like shopping for anything this time of year. I think everyone comes out and every store is very crowded not to mention parking lots are full. And the wait to check out is moving very slow. Hopefully I got everything I need, if not I will have to send DH out and go to a very crowded stores.

Ok, that's it for today. My body is yearning for a nap, right now. However, I have to do other things before I can rest. Have a great Thanksgiving Holiday and make sure you spend some time with your family. Family is always there to help out when you needed it, eventhough we don't like how they live their lives, they are still part of us.

Thank you everyone!

They Are Disappearing

I am talking about good farmers in my area. First our friend who sells us raw milk and organic beef. Then the state made him quit because they are asking too many things to be certify. Now, he moved away and started working for someone else instead. He is glad because he don't have to deal with government officials telling him what to do and how to do it. We would gladly take the cows from him but we don't have a big place to pasture it.

We were buying raw milk from a farm that is not organic. Plus they mass produce their milk and not even close to our friends raw milk. It made us feel icky just buying from them because they don't even believe about the common law. We finally had it, and a few days back DH pick up the phone and ask our friends who got his cows. We went there today and bought 6 gallons of raw milk. DH the the owner got into little discussion and he was also thinking about quitting because the business is slow. Our friends costumers did not follow the cows there apparently. He is hurting and he doesn't even own the place. He is only renting it.

DH and I was thinking, maybe we can find other people to go with us and buy a property big enough for this cows and move the cows there that would be a lot better. We already have a farmer, he can live in the farm to take care of the cows and we will have a never ending supply of milk. Almost like P2V or V2V Migrations, not really because we are moving cows. The farmer can earn money buy selling organic eggs, meat, cheese and raw milk. We don't have really have planned lay out but we think it will work.

The problem is where to find people to put shares on doing this. We are getting sick of the government coming and putting this good/organic farmers out of business. Free market is a very good idea, and I know corporation people will not agree because they have to compete with tiny businesses. That is the beauty of it, plenty to choose from.

We should just move to the boonies where is not accessible for this people. You will need to fly a helicopter just to give me a message. That would be my dream. Self sufficient, off the grid living.

Time to Relax

No, not really. I have to go shopping for thanksgiving food for Thursday. I am so happy we got done with the lessons very early today. Of course we started early also. We even have time to make some Native American's hats and Pilgrim's hats. They enjoy the Native American's ones than the other.

Native AmericansAfter this I need to make a list on what else I need for the feast. We are not expecting much this year since my SIL got married and her new hubby is not getting along well with mine. Something to do with knowing everything/degree holder/right and wrong kind of stuff.

Anyway, have a great weekend everyone. Next week will be very busy for me. Classes will only for two days next week for my family because I wanted to cook desserts on Wednesday and clean the whole house too. I'm off to do my lists.

Many Idea to Post Not Enough Time

A month ago I told DH that we should make our day a 34 hour day. My 24 hour day is not enough for what the things I wanted to do. Then last night he told me that my idea sounds pretty good right now because he got so much things he wanted to do.

If only, that would be so nice. Well, anyway it's almost the weekend. Have to think of food to buy for thanksgiving and we are also having friends over that Saturday following thanksgiving. I am not looking forward to it. Maybe I'll request a day off for the kids on Wednesday to get the house clean and some dessert made before thanksgiving. I have until tomorrow to put the request for it.

My PIL is coming today to take 2 of my kids out. That means whoever is going will not get done with their lessons until later. I wish they do this over the weekend but like us they rather stay home on the weekend. It would nice too, because DH and I can have some time to ourselves. And in addition my ODS will go to a play/classical orchestra this weekend with SIL. I'm not really sure how much she paid for it but I heard it was pricey. It is supposed to be birthday and Christmas present for him since he plays the violin.

Have a great weekend, everyone! I know it's only Thursday but I am ready for the weekend. I am planning on sleeping for two days...lol, yea I wish.

What A Nice Day

We had a high of 66°F today. Of course my kids and I were outside playing and trying to soak up all the sun and vitamin C that we can get. Not to bad for the next few days because 55° F is pretty much tolerable in our area. And don't get me started with one of our neighbor, she will be out there in the thirties and regular clothing. However, she is much bigger than me and I think she have extra layers there to keep her warm. Even the wasps are out and about all over today. I killed a few of them, I don't want them making nests outside my own.

My in laws came to visit, as usual they brought us raw milk and as usual they are still not understanding what is really going on in our country. There is my PIL who can understand most of it and can never explain the other side of what we tell them, and my MIL who simply refuses to acknowledge that we are not free, that we don't have laws except for the common law and the constitution. That all others are not law (e.g. speed limit, taxes) but simply statutes, codes, and regulations. She is fine with all of it until it something is affecting her. It's ok for her not to wear a sit belt as long as other does. She is against us making our own hydrogen but she is fine with it when someone else (professional) can put it in her car for her own use.

She is amazing and I know plenty/many/lots of people is just like her. People will be for cleaner air but it does not bother them when they buy products that came all the way from China. Your SUV that you drive 15 minutes to work will be ban, but they don't ban the big freight that travels from Asia to North America. They will ban you for making a garden in your land to have your own food, but they don't see that by doing so they are making more pollution to our environment because of this big shipping lines. And you call yourself environmentalist, I think you people are just after the money like the government, churches and other organizations approved by government.

I take care of my environment but it does not bother me when property owner do something in their property. It's their property not mine, cut your own trees, make it as crappy as you want, I can care less. I do not tell you how to live your life but please stay from mine and everything that belong to me. What I do with mine is not your business and what you do with yours is not my business. But when you start telling others how to do things and make ridiculous regulations to accommodate what you want, we have a problem.

Food Goes to Our Toes

According to my 3 year old toddler, that is. We are eating dinner and everyone are talking and my I asked him where did the food go in his plate? He said inside my mouth, down my neck, to my belly and down to my toes.

He was so convince that the food goes down to his toes. Then DH thought for a second and he remembers saying the same thing when he was our son's age. He got a good memory not like me, I can't remember some things I did or say this morning...lol.

Looking at the Sky on Friday

Oh look! Plenty of power lines to see...lol. This is what happens when I don't stop and take a better pictures. I saw something up above and I can't zoom in my camera. You need to click the picture to see what I am talking about. I could have crop the picture but where is the fun on that...lol.

This is one block away from where I buy raw milk. Right on the stop sign. If you can see the watermarks, just look a little bit higher from the words and you will find it. Tell me what you saw...good luck. Happy Friday the 13th! Better be careful today.

Wordless Wednesday-You Should See Our Walls

My Maintenance Man

If something does work all of a sudden on your computer, trying re-starting it first. My Kinder's printer decided to stop working last week. I thought right away that he did something wrong but somehow he can't tell me what he did. Nope, I did not re-start the computer right away it took me a few days before thinking hard on what to do. Today I tried the scanner and it work just fine. I asked DH to check it out for me, he doddle for a little bit and asked me if I restarted it. Duh, I knew that, and why did I not try it first. I guess I'm not thinking hard enough or did I just think too hard...lol.


When DD got a new teacher on the third week of October she schedule a meeting through Elluminate. However, Java is not even installed on the computer and I had to install it before she can use Elluminate. I could not wait and just borrowed DS (3rd grader) pc to do the meeting. Last week is the first time she attended a live lesson for her grade. She wanted to answers some question that the presenter was asking. She got called just to found out that her mic and headphone was not working. Crap! What happens to plug in play stuff?

Today I asked DH to play with it and he can't find anything wrong with it. He just click buttons and did not change anything and not even 15 minutes he got everything working even the microphone. He said he did not do anything but check and look if everything is working. And they are all working.

Now, I think that DD's computer is a girl and just needed a man touch...ha ha ha...lol. I toggle with that stupid thing and almost throw it in the ground and DH sits there for less than 15 minutes and it works...argh.

Now she can listen to her music cd's (from school) and not bother anyone. And she can answer question using the microphone, unless it gives me another hard time when I touch it again tomorrow.

Thank you so much DH.

Something Big is Coming

So, what's up with the shooting inside military bases? You should stay away from any government establishment until something comes up. I am telling you something is coming and something big. I don't know what it is yet, but something to do with the politicians and our government.

A high ranking man start shooting innocent people, is not very innocent in my opinion. He knew something he probably refused to act on it, got very mad and you know the rest. Then our leader will come of some excuse to put a bill out that nobody can refused but sign it. More (against) on gun owners perhaps?

They are up to no good, I tell you.

Looking at the Sky on Friday

I have taken this pictures around the house yesterday. I always run out of time in the morning to get some nice shots. Can you see the different color clouds. We have some sun around lunch time yesterday but I don't really knew how long it stayed sunny.

This one was from the NE.

Mrs. Cheers Sky Watch1Straight up, can you see the chimney?

Happy Friday and have a great weekend, everyone! I went very early today and still saw the moon today. Freezing cold out there and I even visit my garden and saw my broccoli is ripening, hopefully I can save some seeds for the coming spring.

Mrs. Cheers, Keystone USA

"I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations. I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
