Well, after last night’s little hissy fit about the state of the world, I’m not going to get on a soapbox tonight. It’s not that I have rethought any of what I said–I still believe all of it, I just don’t want to go there tonight. Instead, let me tell you about our household woes.  […]

I’m frustrated…and it isn’t about homeschool (okay, I’m a little frustrated with that, but it’s nothing new). It’s like people have forgotten how serious cv19 is.  While the Portland and Salem areas are still supposedly locked down, the rest of the state is opening up and I just feel like it is too soon.  Just […]
