Byte Size Blog #9

Tuesday, August 19, 2014


  • I so appreciated the comment the other day in regards to stepping back from my local homeschooling efforts. It's nice to know there's others who know how I feel. 

  • Somehow I fell into the role of dealing with the garbage and recycling at our new house. This means a dump run this morning. 

  • The Girl Child is alive in Outlook, Sask. She was told to maybe focus a little more on the camp experience and a little less on keeping her friends informed by text messages and it seems my punishment is no update phone call. I did learn that there was a walk to the convenience store during which The Girl saw a buck on someone's lawn. She must be on the edge of very big nature out there. 

  • Yesterday was a dentist trip that normally is an hour's drive there and an hour back - it took twice as long as usual due to construction on the roads. 
  • Due to the construction, shopping time was eaten up and all I had time to do was to dash into the mall and - after placating The Boy Child with a booster juice smoothie - run into Lush to buy a tiny pot of shower gel. I'm looking forward to trying it. It smells like citrus and FRESH!!


  • Today is a local trip to the optometrist for The Boy. Since he won't wear his glasses, he's going to ask about contacts. 

  • In an effort to break the monotony of the recent Byte Size Blogs, I am blogging not by app, but through the browser. This means bullets and maybe even a pic. 

  • Except just then I pushed the little picture icon and crashed my browser, so a picture will be a little more involved than I thought. You might just have to appreciate the bullets. Which are more populous than I had initially intended. 

  • In the end I had to revert to the Blogger App. You can't imagine the back and forth it's taken to get this wee post published. Fun times.

Migrate to Wordpress! It took me years before I took others' advice and I have to say I'm so glad I got over the hump. Blogger is passé; Wordpress is where the cool kids play. Seriously, it's a bit different but there's so much more flexibility and the mobile app is really good.

I'm really enjoying the recent updates. And yes, I totally understand about been done with leadership-in-community-building amongst one's local homeschool group. There comes a time when your energy is best put elsewhere. Besides, a leadership void supports the growth of new leaders.

Loved the "bullet"-in. You crack me up! I can't imagine driving that long to see a dentist. That's almost as painful as the dental visit itself. I won't go more than a half hour for any medical care. I did the long distance doctor thing when my first two were babies and it was not fun. When construction and traffic made it a three hour trip, I decided I needed to look for more local care. :)

Peace and Laughter!

PS: I almost couldn't prove I'm not a robot. They really need to make sure their pictures actually have text in them!
