Random Monday

• One of the things I am worried about with this Adventure is my hair.


I have my guy, Jeff, trained how to cut it. Maintaining Lesbian Cop Hair is not as simple as it sounds. A certain way over the ears, texturized a little on top, and my bangs have to be long enough so my eyebrows don’t feel naked, but short enough so they don’t poke me in the eyes. If they start poking me in the eyes, I have been known to go after them in the bathroom with my Lady Schick.

And then who suffers? We all do.

• I am super excited to have arranged a FABULOUS give away at Heart of the Matter! A 24-volume set of Great Moments in American History! Click over to read more about it AND to take advantage of the amazing coupon code they are making available to homeschoolers. It’s a great deal, and one I will be taking advantage of myself.

• I was so geeked last week to discover the famous Life of Fred math series has expanded to include elementary books! I ordered the first 4 and am already a tiny bit in love with Fred.

The Life of Fred, for those who don’t know, is a series of math books written expressly for homeschoolers. Fred is a 5 year old math professor at KITTENS University. Each chapter is written in story form, telling the adventures of Fred in his every day life. He encounters needs for math, then works on solving the problem – to avoid that neverending “WHY are we learning this exactly?” question that is so prevalent in every math class. Fred is fab. I like him a lot.

• Happy Monday!

    You should be very concerned about your hair. Is there time to send your hubby to beautician school?

    Did you know….that every time I sharpen a pencil….I think of you?

    hahaha! You are right. Finding a stylist is the worst part about moving. (and a dentist, but that can be put off)

    Great give away!

    Yay for Fred! Are you supplementing with him or using as main learning tool? If supplementing, what are you using with him?

    I’ve done the exact opposite with my hair. I’ve just let it grow and grow and grow. Once or twice a year I get a $10.00 hair cut at one of those quicky places. Then I let it grow and grow and grow and grow again. Just too hard to find someone who does a really good job cutting it. And this way it is low maintenance! Can you say pony tail?

    Thanks for the Fred recommendation. I’ll have to look these up. We looove math. 🙂

    Too funny, Deb. Lesbian cop hair. Wow. I haven’t words.

    I love Life of Fred. It has made ALL the difference for my boy. Truly. He used to tolerate maths. Now he loves it. I can’t wait for my girl to discover him.

    When are we leaving, by the way, Deb? Tomorrow? And when we go, will you mind if I write every day saying, Are we there yet?? 🙂

    Lesbian Cop Hair. Hilarious! Thanks for the Life of Fred tip! We are taking the homeschool plunge this year, and these books would be right up Son #2’s alley.

    Deb! I’ve been like crazy lately and just got caught up on your blog … the great adventure sounds EXCITING! I can’t wait to live vicariously through you — oh my, the funny stories that await, like kinetic energy just awaiting release!
    You go, girl!
