This is like having a 'pensieve'. I have to dump it here because there is too much clattering around in my skull and I can't make head nor tail of it all. It's too much for Grizzly Mama - too much I tell you! I am nearly catatonic because of it. Maybe if I dump it then I will be able to think.Solutes and solvents. I don't recall being taught the word 'solute' in Science while enrolled in our failing public school system. The 4th grader and the Kindergartner know it now. So does Grizzly Mama!! We also know the proper way to label a solution with solute coming first and solvent coming second. Fascinating.
Snow is coming - possibly 8 inches or more. Where did I put the sleds? I LOVE to go sledding.
Patrick has a new job. We will remain in Philly.
The house is going up for sale. That last little incident involving a chase from another neighborhood, a dozen police cars, a channel 10 newstruck, a helicopter with spotlight hovering over the the block, and gunshots all happening around midnight or so is a sign. A sign that the neighborhood is turning - and not for the better.
Painting. The kitchen cabinets need to be primed and painted with high gloss white paint. Have to fix that drawer that I duct taped together 3 years ago. The living room needs to be painted, the woodwork in the dining room and the bathroom needs it's finishing touches.
This time of year we go into high gear with school. If we are going to finish everything (or most of it) we are going to have to kick butt. Normally I rely on the winter being cold and miserable which gives us plenty of indoor time to do school. This winter has been warm and so we like to get outside. We have a lot of work to do.
Suitcase bombs. (always a worry)
The porous borders - totally upset about that.
Get the baby-shower gifts today and don't forget Tom-Tom's birthday presents.
The encroachment of Islamofascist ideology into our public school system, our prison system and our society in general. We can thank the lying Saudi Royal Family B@$tards for that.
The Committees of Correspondence. Yet another detail left out in my History education.
Linking to several new blogs that I have found.
Thank you so much for helping me to sort it all out. I'm hoping that in no time at all I will be able to post something coherent!
