Um… something weird is going on. And I think I know what the source is. It’s drugs. Drugs in the water. Lots of drugs, especially hallucinogens. Today I got two emails almost at the same time. One asked if I’d like to be interviewed as a featured homeschooler, and another asked if I would be a speaker for an upcoming conference. Drugs in the water. At any rate, if I end up doing either, perhaps I will offer pillows and blankets for the poor unsuspecting attendees (snore drool).
In other news, I’ve been to the doctor ‘more times than what’s pleasant’ within the last two weeks. Zero, actually, is the only number of times that would be pleasant, but alas. Dumb dang darn dumb old dangitty dang blasted bowling ball of a kidney stone. The doctor has given me two surgical options. One option is very unpleasant. The other option is exceedingly horrifically unthinkably unpleasant. So I’m thinking about just leaving my bowling ball alone. He’s a part of me now, and perhaps I should not be inhospitable.
Anyways, I’m supposed to go in this Monday to get it dynamited. It’s super creepy to get put under / knocked out. Hopefully they will wake me up with no prob when they’re done. All in all, I suppose it will be relatively fun.
In different other news, the goat stew was a great hit with half the family. I was part of the half that didn’t love it. Marshiemellow suggested that I try making goat jerky. I bet I could do that. I have a dehydrator. Did you see the goat pictures on Coie’s pg? My apologies if you did.
Lastly… My sister comes in just two and a half-ish weeks. Hippity hip hip hooooray! We’ve got a list of things we’re gonna do, roller skating being one of them. Admit it, there are very few things in this world (besides playing softball and disco dancing in the living room) that’s as fun as roller skating. Its been a loooooong time since I’ve been, and I don’t think any of my four youngest kids have ever been.
And oh yeah, it’s almost Mother’s Day. Believe it or not, I am not in an adamant frenzy of dislike over Mother’s Day. I actually like that one. I can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I had such a sweet mother. And now I have such an excellently great mother in law. And plus I have such ridiculously entertaining kids whom are quite easy to like. Mother’s Day is one of those rare holidays that’s hard to find reasons to rant about.
