Wow! Wasn't it just September last year?

I can't believe it's September already! I am beyond ready for fall. I've missed the cooler weather. College Football is officially starting tomorrow! Woo-Hoo! We really are a football loving family. Even the kids will stop what they are doing and watch for a little while. (You know, all of 2 minutes!) I found myself ready for Friday on Monday and now I'm wondering, wow Friday is here already?! I've had sinus issues this week. And this morning it moved into my vocal chords and I can't talk. The kids keep asking, " Why are yew whisperin?" I keep telling them and they look at me like I'm crazy. Then they whisper back to me. There has been a whole lot of whispering going on today. My house hasn't been this quite in 5 years! I think I like it. I may have to whisper from now on! ;) I called the doctor yesterday morning at 8:30 to see if they would call me something in for this mess. Here it is 1:00 the next day and still nothing. I called twice yesterday afternoon and the receptionist was short and snippy. I think I will be finding a new doctor. Thankyouverymuch!

Soap Box: How hard is it to return calls or phone in a prescription in between seeing patients? I know I'm not a doctor. I use to work for a decent size doctors office(6 doctor's) and they all saw patients and returned calls. I know it can be done. Some days were busier than others but they still at least told the patients that much. Soap Box done.

I just finished reading The Help. It was a really great book. It makes you think. It seems like the south, in the book, was so long ago and yet it really wasn't that long ago. If you haven't read it, I think you should. It's really good. Now, I want to see the movie. :)

We start school on Tuesday. Yikes! I am excited and yet anxious. I keep wondering to myself, what the public schools are teaching at this moment. Will she be ahead or behind. Then, I think, it doesn't really matter what the public schools are teaching at this moment. We get to do thing's at our own pace, in our own time. As long as she learns what she needs to, who cares if we do it a little differently than the public schools. That's the whole point of home school. We get to teach her one on one. She will get to learn things that many don't get to learn because they are in public schools. Example: They may learn just what they have to learn to get to the next level in public schools. But if a particular subject really interests our kids then we can go deeper and learn more than what's just required. *I'm not down grading public schools. There are a lot of great teachers out there who do more than what's just required. I'm glad they give of their time to teach. This is just my opinion and what we think works best for our family.* Yes, I think I'm more excited than anxious.

Last weekend we went to the Chattanooga ZOO. It was fun. I was really concerned it may be too hot, but it wasn't. It was warm but there was a nice breeze blowing. The kids had a great time. And so did the Mr. and I. There was this one overgrown chicken with crazy hair Exotic African Bird of some sort, that stared the Mr. down and tried to peck him through the fence. It was a little scary but mostly funny. The kids and I got a good laugh out of it! I'll post pictures soon!

I guess that's it for now, since my kids are suppose to be brushing their teeth but they are playing in the water instead. I also have a mountain of laundry to fold. Literally. It looks like Mt. Everest has been moved to my couch.(It doesn't help that I haven't folded the laundry in a week, 5 days, 3, no 2, One day.Yes, One day. It really piles up!) I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

  1. LOL. I haven't folded laundry in awhile either. I'm usually on top of things, but haven't felt like doing anything since we came home from FL. :P
    I'm glad it's September! I ♥ Fall and can NOT wait to decorate! Bring on the pumpkins and everything orange!

  2. Bring on the cinnamon broomsticks and scarecrows!

    I'm so ready for much cooler weather. But, but I'll admit, by New Year's I'll be over it and ready for summer again. :)
