What are you up to today?
January 19, 2013 at 10:07 AM

Ugh, I don't know why I do this to myself twice a year, but today I'm burying myself in my room in order to prep all the supplies for our first day of co-op on Tuesday. I'm teaching 3 classes so that means I have 3 days to make - 

13 3-ring binder Anatomy lapbooks

13 foam board 12 x 9 inch rectangular boxes 

And figure out how I'm going to transport all of them plus my 2 microscope cases, 13 stethoscopes and 4 dozen eggs - the 3 block from my house to coop....eek!

what are you up to?

    I'm sitting in my writer's group meeting. We already talked about finding time to write, and next up is the agent hunt.

    I've never even heard of that, do you have a website you use that has the process?

    Making goat milk soap! I'm so excited, but it has to cure till st Patrick's day!
    I also made some liquid hand soap from a cake of Dr. Bronners. It needs to sit till tomorrow morning.
    Next I'm going to plan out the meals for the week, clean the kitchen, and make apple pie!

    We all slept in til 8:30 (heaven!), then I went to the gym. Came home, helped kids do Saturday chores, showered, and my mom came over. So then DH & I went to do some errands and out for Indian for lunch (nomnomnom). Came back home & we all went for a walk at the riverfront with the doggies. Now I'm folding laundry and planning for Sunday. We'll eat pizza & watch Shaggy Dog tonight.

    Oooo, I've never made apple butter, but it sounds yummy. Is it hard to make?

    Quoting mamamedic69:

    We are peeling, cutting apples for preserves and apple butter. Later we will fill the jars and seal them. My daughter picked up some other fruits at the fruit stand so we are going to be making fruit salad for dessert.

    Don't worry, it does get easier! I remember feeling so disorganized and frazzled in the beginning too.

    Quoting Nhismage:

    Well, being that I'm very new to this and my DS and I just got started this past week.  I will be preparing lessons for next week because I have been such a mess an all unorganized...lol..lol Then maybe Ill do a little baking.  I'm in the mood for some keylime cake with cream cheese icing or just a glaze on top, it's sooooo good.

    Not at all. I'll post the recipe later. I cook it overnight in the crockpot. Then use a blender to break up any chunks.
