I decided to finally give in and home school my children. I know, what was I thinking? I was thinking and still do think that it was a good idea. I wanted to spend more time with my children and teach them about being a good person. Its also convenient when we travel back and forth from Connecticut and Illinois (every 3 months) where my husband and I have a house there and where he currently lives. It can be hard at times but I think we are both dealing with it very well.
I have found here the most amazing Thrift Stores. Its become almost an addiction. One of my friends claims its going to be my downfall. Ill post some of my thrift store finds in the coming weeks. Ill also be posting some home school adventures and hopefully moving and the new house adventures. I'll also post recipes and whatever else is going on at the time.
I'm turning 45 in April and I keep remembering what Richard Briers said in the English comedy The Good Life, It's the quality of life I'm looking for or something like that.
The picture your looking at is Connecticut's Five Mile Point Lighthouse. Every Christmas they have amazing Christmas lights that you drive through.

'Well, I bought an expensive woman's

mother's birthday that is unopened and well over
the Customs limits,
and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there
any way you could carry
it through customs for me? Under your robes
'I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn
you: I will not lie.'
'With your honest face, Father, no one will
When they got to Customs, she let the priest go ahead
The official asked, 'Father, do you have anything
'From the top of my head down to my waist, I have
nothing to declare.'
The official thought this answer strange, so asked,
'And what do you
have to declare from your waist to the floor?'
'I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used
on a woman, but
which is, to date, unused.'
Roaring with laughter, the o fficial said, 'Go
ahead, Father. Next!'
