Random Thoughts

Apparently there’s a massive snow storm heading our way.  I am choosing to ignore the weatherman and stick my head in the five inches we already have.

I don’t make a habit of watching award shows, but I was curious to see if The King’s Speech would win anything at last night’s SAG Awards.  We tuned in just in time to see Natalie Portman win for Best Actress in a Film.  She thanked the Screen Actors union for looking after her and making sure she got her education.  Michael said, “Are you too stupid to get your own education?”  My heart was filled with pride…

This week is insanely busy. Which means I know people.  Which makes me thankful.

It is only January and I am already dreaming of summer break.  I don’t think I looked forward to summer this much when I was a student.  As a homeschool mom, I think about it all the time.  All. The. Time.

Rebecca just asked me how to spell parliament.  I spelled it wrong.  She corrected me with a sweet, “I think you’re missing an ‘a,’ Mom.”  

Did I mention I’m dreaming of summer break?

I have ten teenagers in my house right now taking math lessons from our math tutor.  She teaches three different classes: Algebra I, Algebra II and Pre-Calc.  I am very, very thankful for Mrs. Campeau. 

Five of the students are sitting behind me right now, giving me weather updates.  They are very, very hopeful we’ll get dumped on tonight.  They do not understand my lack of enthusiasm.

Michael takes the ACT next weekend.  One step closer to college.  Definitely not ready for that.

The King’s Speech did win for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture – yay!  Colin Firth also won for best actor.  Definitely deserved.

This blog post is late today because I actually cleaned the house and made tonight’s dinner before working on my blog.  Sean will be shocked.

By, “cleaned the house,” I do not mean, “cleaned the bathroom.”  If I cleaned the bathroom, Sean would have a heart attack.  Can’t risk losing him.
