Wooden Thomas The Tank Engine Recall


I just wanted to post this real quick because I know many of us have children who own many of the trains listed. Luckily for us, we only had the Day Out With Thomas one.

See, even Thomas and his friends have it out for your kids!!! I always knew those trains were evil just look at Diesel 10. You can tell he's a real meany in the morning!

Never trust something that can talk without moving it's lips. *wink*

By the way, there are pictures of the recalled trains if you scroll to the bottom of the page.

The Black Thumb Of Death Strikes Again!!!

I told you everyone in this family has a black thumb didn't I? All the seeds we planted started out nicely and really would have done fine but we put off planting them. Then it started to rain here. Then it started to rain ALOT here. Our backyard is nothing but sand. Believe it or not sand likes to be blown around by the wind. Said sand smothered our seedlings.

What did we do? Not go outside to touch them for two days after that. LOL. We are such lazy gardeners!

So no Eggplant, Blue Boys, Marigolds, or Spinach for us this year. Also, NEVER buy one of those strawberry kits for $9.98 from Walmart because they are junk. So no Strawberries for us this year either. THAT one makes me sad. :(

The Tomato plants from the Tomatosphere experiment are doing very well though. They are growing strong and healthy! YAY!! I am also happy to report that MonkeyBoy's mixed flower seeds are doing very well also. His first flower bloomed a few days ago and the look on his face was absolutely priceless! I will have to take pictures to include in this post soon so be sure to check back soon.

Definately Having Doubts

As we're finishing up our second year of homeschooling I can't help but wonder if there should even be a third year. I had a long post all typed up but deleted it because I just don't feel right talking about the horror that is our homeschooling experience.

It seems the only one I should even consider homeschooling is MonkeyBoy and even that is questionable.

Who knew that children could sit on their ass and do nothing, treat their mom like crap, think they know it all, and still believe they are somehow ahead of everyone else their age! Wow, what am I even doing here? This isn't worth me getting physically ill all the time. This isn't worth watching them enjoy me getting physically ill all the time from this crap.

I think they've finally won. I can't do this for another year. Maybe they really are better off being put back a grade (or two in Sis' case) in public school. :(

Mine's Bigger

That title got your attention didn't it? Bad bad parent! :) I thought this was cute so I had to post it. By the way, if you believe in creationism please just see this as the joke it's meant to be and don't take offense.
