It's been 2 whole days since I've written anything in the ol' blog! What? That seems a little unlikely! Big Daddy C has been home on vacation this week and we've been "being productive". Yikes. I could list all the stuff we did yesterday but I'll just drop it and say one thing, 3 times as much junk as we usually do on Mondays and that's a BUNCH!

Today we didn't have as much to do so we got most of a day's school in. Readin', Writin' and 'Rithmatic. We got a course in of sexual education tonight by watching Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe! It was the special animal episode where they showed all the stuff they had left out of the original episodes. Mostly animals "getting it on" to put it bluntly! LOL. Then they showed how artificial insemination of Kine (Cows) and yes, had to explain to the children what ejaculation was. I think my "matter of fact" attitude towards sex ed is finally paying off. My long held theory is that when anything comes up I'll just give them the info they asked for in a very matter of fact way and act like it was no big deal. That way when they really need to know something they won't hesitate to ask. No one hesitated this evening and I didn't skip a beat. I'm not saying they weren't a little repulsed when I explained it but hey,, it is what it is.

Tomorrow and the next day I have a Dr. appointments. I'm getting the "Grandma" panel tomorrow. Bone Density, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure Screen, CBC, Thyroid, Estrogen, Progesterone, Lipids and Metobolics. YIPPPEEE!!! I'm OLD! (crying on the inside). I recently broke my foot and put a hairline fracture in my hip (just crouching down). Here's a hint for you girls: Yes, you can break your hip and not know it even walk around on it for weeks. It's one of those stupid breaks tho that they can't do much about. Not unlike a broken toe! I *almost* wish that I'd broken something good! Something that they'd have to bandage up and I'd get some recognition for but NOOOoooOOOOoooo,,, I have to break dumb stuff. And for the record, I'm only 34 but I think my OPRAH age is like 94. I haven't checked but I'm pretty sure of it. I'm just sayin'.

Well, in true old lady fashion, I think I'm going to knit a little on the sock I've been working on and turn in early. Night night all!
