so sick of computers
January 27, 2013 at 8:14 PM

I am at my wits end with technology. I have problem after problem with any electronics ranging in viruses and electrical issues with all 3 computers to networking issues to printer issues to cable wires in the house to tvs to even all kitchen appliances!!! I am convinced there are wiring issues in the house even and its only 3 yrs old!


anyway, my point of posting - I cannot rely on internet sources or saving files on my computer anymore. I am currently using history odyssey for...history... but for the majority of it we appear to be on the computer. I can no longer access the files I need to to finish the yr til the computers are fixed once again! I am looking for next yr. my daughter will be in 4th grade... any secular history curriculum? I should be good on our others...but maybe also geography? I stress secular and the computer not be needed... thank you.

    Thank you :)
     I so agree with that! My hubby gets annoyed because I complain all the time because I tend to correct the books lol. Then we have a long debate, which I usually win and we have to start the lesson all over again lol. But then that's where i get too deep...and lose everyone's interest....lol. That's where I mostly need a guide so I know where to cut off the lesson... I pitty my kids when they reach high school age if we're still homeschooling then lol (I'm still trying to persuade to continue homeschool through).  

    Quoting kirbymom:

    Try accessing your library. Or maybe even a used book store. We buy used books that are much older than the mainstream today as they are whitewashing  what really happened in History.

    We have long debates all the time. Usually its about who is more right, him or me. He usually wins by a smidge.
