This Week ‘Back’ to Normal

Fave Pic

We had some fun with our cats on National Dress Up Your Pet Day this week. This is Razzi in all of his sophisticated glory.

Highlights of the Week My back started feeling almost normal by Friday.

I got pulled over after dropping Gage off at morning nature camp for a brake light that was out. I couldn’t provide proof of insurance and he still let me off with a warning. Yay me!

I signed up for Book Riot’s TBR service and am looking forward to seeing what they choose for me.

On the homeschool front, we started a real math curriculum (it’s a book, but with worksheets, lesson plans, and tests included) instead of me making the lessons myself and not only has it taken some of the stress off, but Gage is flying through. He’s tested out of the first 25 lessons so far and I’m sure he’ll continue to ace the tests for at least the next 20, so I’m feeling way more confident that what I was doing before was working.

Could’ve been better I was in considerable pain until Friday.

    {Gasp!} Thanks for reminding me I need to print out my new car insurance cards and put them in the glove box. I think I can pull them up on an app but with my luck I wouldn’t have cell reception if I got pulled over.

    You are starting out the year with some good books. Charlotte’s Web is a classic children’s book.
    An American Marriage is a fascinating book about an African American couple and how their relationship is tested when the man is put in prison. I read the book more than 2 years ago. The author has great story telling skills.

    Glad Gage is doing so well with math! I loved Vanishing Half and Charlotte’s Web = hope you are enjoying both.

    Have a great week – IZZY hits here tonight snow to begin overnight and then change to rain.

    I’m so glad to hear that your back almost feels normal. That’s wonderful.

    I enjoyed Vanishing Half and Charlotte’s Web and the Pema Chodron book. Pema Chodron is so helpful, I think.

    I love Because of Winn-Dixie, too, but I’ve never seen the movie…

    All those poor kitties enduring human’s dressing them. LOL My two will not tolerate being dressed. We got Nina in a dress when she was a kitten, but that’s about it. I hope your back continues to heal. Take it easy even when you think it’s gotten back to normal. It’s easy to overdue it too soon! I speak from experience. I just finished watching the first season of A Discovery of Witches also! I look forward to the next two. I hope you enjoy your reading and have a great week!

    I am shocked Rizzi agreed to dress up. My cat would have eaten me alive!

    I’ve never read A Discovery of Witches and didn’t know that it was on Amazon Prime now. One of my best friends recommended the book to me ages ago, I’ve just never gotten around to reading it. Maybe I need to bump it to the top of the list so I can watch the show!

    Your son looks so much like our neighbor’s son when he was younger! I had to look twice!

    Enjoy your week!

    Hooray for the warning instead of a ticket! And how wonderful that Gage is doing so well with the math curriculum. That Disney puzzle looks challenging, but fun. Intrusion looks a super creepy movie. I think I’ll pass! 😉
