Christmas Count-down

*1*
 OT/Ancient Egypt HS Kit w/CD
School this week went by the list:  IXL, Veritas Press Bible time-line cards, World Mag, Drawing, Spelling City; Saxon, Perplexors, Learn Math Fast. First Language Lessons.
 
The kids latest book to be passionate about has been D'Aulaire's Norse Myths. It's rather morbidly compelling. Flower continues to compare it to the Greek Myths and has decided that the Greeks are more obvious s*xpots, but the Norse have dark side that is entirely creepy. Good old classical ed. Gotta love it.

We are thrilled to be undertaking a new opportunity -Organo Gold - because we just weren't busy enough. But I love and believe in this stuff enough that busy doesn't count so much. Seriously, I've been drinking the Green Tea since May and I am off all medications and the insomniacs are sleeping better (that, my friends is worth almost any price!). You know the adage; one good med leads to another, and that was certainly the case for me. Plus, the med never really seemed to solve anything. So, good-bye little white pills that require blood drawn way to often and hello good stuff! The key ingredient (surprise!) has been linked to managing autism, cancer, ADHD, insomnia, high blood pressure, etc. It's not a miracle cure, but a key player in healthy living. Bring it on - and let me know if you'd like to hear more.

Charlie Brown Christmas
Busy week-end with a viewing of The Hobbit, a Jr. High Teen Night, Ballroom Dancing, an early morning breakfast, and a few gift exchanges. Flower is the left behind kiddo these days but we've had some fun times going to girly places and Christmas shopping. She is busy wrapping, whispering and planning and she has a great gift idea for Cub that she wouldn't mind sharing, btw ; )

Sadly, our kitty who got caught in the mayo jar died last night. Flower was beside herself. Somehow, little kitty and sub-zero temps just aren't a winning combo, no matter how much tlc is administered. Please, do not send a live sympathy cat -or kitten- to console her (you know who you are ; ). Not till spring, anyway.

Love Bill Cosby. Sorry to hear about your kitty. Hugs! Will be on the look out for the Organo Green tea to give it a try.

Merry Christmas!
