As a blogger, I may be compensated in some way (either pay, product, or experience) for sharing the post below All opinions are my own. ~Heidi
(one) isn’t the new miscellany monday button cute? I think so!
(two) I just got the first-draft copy of the 2011-12 Schoolhouse Planner (which I’ve been working on for months) – and this thing is HUGE! We’re talking 822 pages, people! If you’re a homeschooler and you’re not using this product, what have you been waiting for?! It’s currently on pre-sale for only $22. Trust me when I say it’s well worth the regular price of $39 (and then some) – so you can wait and pay full price, but why pass up a tremendous deal?!
(three) it’s crazy cold here in PA! Where’s spring?! Brian said we might even get snow by the end of the week. What?! I wish I was going to Florida NOW, and not in May.
(four) every time I woke up in the middle of the night, I had been dreaming about my friend Sue. She was alive! It was weird. In some of the dreams she was sick, in others, she wasn’t. I was thinking of her yesterday when we were watching Man vs. Food – I was thinking about how much she loved hamburgers and always said she could win a hamburger-eating contest. Maybe that’s what prompted the dreams. My mom recently brought over this picture of Sue and me that she found in her things:
(five) today it’s 51 days ‘til we leave for Florida. We made a countdown chain over the weekend. This is a MUST-HAVE. Otherwise, we’d have to listen to Ian asking – every day – if we could start packing! He’s his mother’s son, what can I say?!
(six) Ian is also counting the days until we go to see the Monster Truck Nationals. That reminds me — in 2 hours, I’ll be drawing a winner for the Family 4-pack of tickets. If you’re in PA and would like to go see the Monster Trucks, you better go sign up – and FAST!
(seven) Ashley and I are counting the days until we go to the Revolve Tour (click the button in my sidebar to learn more about this conference for teen girls – and their moms). I’m looking forward to meeting some of my fellow Crew Mates at this conference – Shannon and Paula. But, more about that next week . . .
(eight) speaking of meeting new friends, I’ve been trying to make some new bloggy friends by participating in a few hops. There are so many out there – if you’re looking for new bloggy buddies, be sure to check them out. Here are a few that I’m participating in today:
For this one, there are some weekly questions to answer —
1. Crunchy or soft tacos? I probably prefer crunchy. However, Taco Bell used to (maybe still does, I haven’t been there in awhile) have a taco that was a hard shell with a soft shell outside it (“glued”together with refried beans). I found it rather intriguing and the best of both taco worlds.
2. Do you scrapbook? I used to – back when I had time. Now, I have Ian. But, I wouldn’t trade him for time – ever!
3. Do you take any daily medications? Yes.
4. What is your favorite sound? My kids laughing.
5. Where were you born? In PA, in a hospital about 50 minutes from where I live now.
And here are a few more hops that I’m participating in this week:
