Target practice

Kieran has decided to start shooting his gun again. He got this for his birthday and hasn't shot it in a few months. He is shooting at soda cans and he keeps track of hits and misses and writes down his percentages.

Hockey in the living room

It's been cold here lately so the kids improvised.

My 4 reasons

My 4 reasons to be the unschooling, mindful, respectful parent that I know I can be. It takes a lot of mental energy and deleting old tapes in my head from my childhood. Every time I screw up I just remember to do better the next time.

My favorite creatures, they are just gorgeous! This is at the Nashville Zoo, they have 3 beautiful African elephants.

I hate being sick

I have been sick since Christmas and enough is enough! I should be laying down but I'm sore and I have so much to do but don't have much energy. I feel a little better today considering I have spent the last 2 days in bed for the most part.
I am a terrible sick person, I feel violated, I get cranky and miserable. YUCK!!!!!

My dad and stepmom came down from NY to visit and I tried my best to not act as awful as I felt. We even went to the zoo, it's amazing that I walked through the zoo when I should have been in bed. That is probably why I got worse but I didn't want to ruin it for my kids.

There was a highlight to that, I got to see the elephants :)
Anyone who knows me knows that I love elephants. Oh they were just gorgeous, Jason got some pictures and videotaped them for me. I can't wait to go back and visit them and the kids are looking forward to the next trip to the zoo. It was a great time even if I was feeling lousy.

Now it's time to take down the Christmas decorations and clean the house. I did a little bit so far but I'm just really out of it.

For the past several days I have been pushing the vitamin C, taking Oscillo and Oil of Oregano and trying to rest. I even took some hot baths accompanied with Chardonnay, I was trying to sweat it out or flush it out with alcohol

Oh well I know I'll be better soon it just sucks to be ill.
