NaBloPoMo Day 9...Bullet Style

>> Monday, November 9, 2009

  • today has been an off day and has left me low on inspiration, ergo the bullets.

  • mondays are my "sleep in" day. some may think i sleep in every day but i don't. the other six days i set an alarm, on mondays i don't.
  • i'll just say that i slept in way too late, even for me, so for normal people i slept in ridiculously late.

  • hence the off day.

  • i told y'all about kelley's report card, which if you don't remember, was excellent!

  • but also mentioned some apprehension about bethany's. her progress report was not great. i don't even think i could say it was good. it was bad enough that she had many restrictions for the remainder of the grading period.

  • i am so excited to report that bethany's report card was pretty darn awesome!

  • bethany doesn't work up to her potential, but she does have the potential.

  • a pleasant surprise was that her teacher gave a good report about bethany's behavior! she's not a bad kid, but she's bethany, and that can be challenging. despite the sometimes hard times i wouldn't ever want her to change who she is. but with this comes the chance of bad behavior reports.

  • mr. h has been preparing for something the past year or so. he calls it "disaster preparedness"...natural disaster, economic collapse, civil unrest and don't tell him i told you this, zombie attacks.

  • he stockpiles. we have a lot of various things stockpiled. which is great except our house is small and already cramped.

  • i think if he was really clever he could build an underground bomb shelter. if nothing else it would be a good place to store his stockpiles.

  • his current quest is to find long shelf-life ways to store food. currently, he is playing with his new food dehydrator.

  • if a crisis ever happens, feel free to come on over!

  • moving along...i still haven't found any homes for the kittens.

  • one friend is interested in a cat to rid her barn of vermin. we are actually thinking that instead of the kittens, (in)vader may be a good match. he has claws (extra ones too-remember he's a hemingway. sort of). and lately he has been trying to get outside with every opportunity he finds. he would have to give up the luxuries of air conditioning and couches, etc. but we are considering this option.

  • ferris and theo are really encouraging this. (in)vader is so sweet, except to them.

  • i'm thrilled to hear the news that it seems stellan's heart ablation was a success!

  • my prayers will continue, asking our Lord to make this success everlasting.

  • and that sums up my thoughts on this off day.

LOL about Mr. H, he'd fit right in in Utah. :)

If you are prepared for zombies then hurricanes, economic collapse, civil unrest and any other disaster will be a breeze !
