Right now, I am…

…cold. Blogging is too sedentary to keep me warm.

…working on my post about why I homeschool. I’m having fun writing it, and it’s almost done. But it’s the sort of post I want to read over carefully before I publish it, both because I want it to be accurate and because I want it to be positive, not defensive.

…wishing there were more hours in the day. There are so many wonderful things to do, I really can’t fathom ever being bored, even if I had 48 hours every day.

…having fun cleaning out my bookshelves. Getting rid of clutter is cathartic in an addicting sort of way.

…learning to let go of books.

…happy that people from Freecycle have already taken some of my clutter.

...hoping some of my book clutter will sell promptly on

…remembering how much fun my lunch date with Mr. FG was on Monday.

…thankful for a sister who watched my kids for said lunch date.

…looking very much forward to the day when Joshua is old enough to watch all of the kids (woo, woo!)

…planning Zoe’s birthday celebration (She’s going to be six. My goodness.)

….also planning special things for Mr. FG, who shares a birthday with Zoe. (at lunch yesterday, she cheerfully said, “I stole your birthday, Daddy!”)

…needing to make some whole wheat bread. We’re down to a heel.


…wanting to make some more granola. I’ve been eating it with thawed local fruit (blueberries and peaches) at breakfast.

…trying not to be too impatient for longer periods of daylight.

…thrilled that I got my grocery shopping done.

…anxious to hang up a shelf I bought at Goodwill (it’s going into Lisey and Sonia’s room).

…grateful that my husband loves me. It seems like bloggers all over the blogosphere are divorcing/separating right now, and watching that makes me more thankful for what I have.

How about you? If you want, you can list 4 “Right Now” items of your own in the comments. It’s pretty fun…give it a try!

Use caution with the big brother babysitting thing! When our oldest son was old enough to babysit his three siblings, he used to make them stand in the corner holding a book over their heads! We didn't find out about it until years later! They still talk to him, though... chuckle.. although none of them seem to like books anymore.. lol

Thankful for my husband who works hard so I can be a stay at home mom. Blessed to have a healthy and happy 6 month old! Sad that he is growing up so fast-he is sitting all by himself now! Grateful for loving family and friends

I have so many books that I need to let go of (hard to do!) and have never sold them via Any tips?

Really quickly: Don't bother with the ones that seem to be selling for only a dollar or two (too much work!), save shipping envelopes to use for shipping out your books, and price your books so that they undercut the other ones listed by just a bit. That way they'll get top billing on the product page.

Ah, what a peaceful picture. I would like to come read on your couch, too. Do you have room for another homeschooler? I'm only 31. :)

Yes! There's room on the loveseat. ;)
