Welcome to Holy Week, if that’s your thing. It’s the lead up to Easter and whether you do the whole Christ has died, Christ has risen thing or you just stick to the eggs and bunnies and chocolate, I hope this week finds you happy, heathy, and excited.

Our week off from school ends today. Tomorrow they are back to the learning box. I didn’t make them do as much math as I intended (for which they are grateful). We did practice tying shoe laces. I know there are “easy” methods, one of which we originally taught Crash. However, these “easy” methods often turn into knots when they come untied. So we are practicing the old fashioned way. Bang, the 6 year old enjoys the practice and is getting the hang of it. Crash, the 10 year old is getting the hang of it, too, though it frustrates him. So does everything else that seems like work.

While we’re practicing shoes, here are a few good reads from this week…

Celebrating One Thousand

1000

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what are a thousand posts worth?

1,000 nanseconds is 1 microsecond. (there are 1 billion nanoseconds in 1 second)
1,000 microseconds is .001 seconds.

1,000 seconds is 16 minutes and 40 seconds.
1,000 minutes is 16 hours and 40 minutes.
1,000 hours is 41 days, 15 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds.
1,000 days is 2 years, 8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, 11 hours, 33 minutes, and 19 seconds.
A thousand years ago it was 1018.
A thousand years from now it will be 3018.

Imagine what the world was like a thousand years ago.

  • The world’s population was about 250 million
  • China created gunpowder
  • The Myans and Hindus discover the concept of zero
  • The Anglo-Saxon calendar was produced
  • Printing became standardized
  • My parents graduated from University
  • I was born

I wish I had a $1,000. Any givers out there?

Also, this is my 1,000th post. It took me 1,777 days to get to this point. My very first post is here. While that was “The Beginning” this certainly isn’t the end.

Help me celebrate by leaving a comment down below. I will follow it up by reading your blog and leaving you a comment too. If you’re really lucky, what I read could end up on my next Sunday Share!

Cheers to 1,000 and here’s to 1,000 more!

The third month. Oh three. A quarter of the way through 2018! Crash (10) can now do long division and multiply multidigit problems. Bang (6) can tell time on an analog clock and add numbers with carrying. Have you learned anything new this year?

If not, that’s okay. There’s still time. I visited Body Worlds so I learned how small an appendix and uterus really are and that our veins and capillaries are 60,000 miles long.

While you’re waiting to learn something new, check out these posts that I read last week. Maybe you’ll learn something.

Harsh Reality
A new position and some emotions…

Three’s A Herd

Sunday… err Monday… Share: Y2 W9

Welcome readers to another Manic Monday. There was song by that name, too. This week has some fun stuff in store for us. The gun debate in the US still rages on. The Nova Scotia teacher’s union is in talks with the provincial government about serious education reform today. We’re going to the Body World exhibit and staying in a hotel and going to Crash’s heart check up this week, too. And that’s just the beginning of the week!

Happy Reading!

Are sugar free sugar wafers really sugar wafers? I know there’s more important, heavier matters if you will, to think about, but right now I just wanna think about these delicious sugar free “sugar” wafers. You can order a Big Mac with no meat. Is it still a Big Mac? How much of a work do I have change to make it not plagiarism?

I considered rounding up posts concerning Parkland and all the debates happening for today’s Sunday Share. Then I thought that might be too depressing, too much for a Sunday. Then I though about rounding up the funny stuff to bring some laughs where there might not be many. I though that wouldn’t be fair to completely ignore the elephant in the room. So I bring you a mix of both. I’ll let you choose…

We’re almost 8 weeks into 2018. Have I learned anything yet this year? I have learned a few new Keto recipes for DW. I learned Crash doesn’t like spaghetti squash substituted for spaghetti. I learned to spell spaghetti so I don’t have to type “sketti” even though that’s what everyone calls it. I learned that if we don’t have chocolate chips, Bang would rather starve than have a chocolate chipless pancake. I also learned that just because you’re in 10th place that doesn’t mean you can’t still win it all!

I also learned that these are some good reads from this week…

One year ago today DW received “the call” that her father was being taken to the hospital by ambulance. From there he was transported to another, larger, hospital. On the way, DW asked him to send her eagles as a sign that he was with her.

When Bang learned to swim without a life jacket, an eagle flew overhead.
When DW was on her way to the hospital for CAT scan, she spotted an eagle.
When DW was feeling down and out, there was an eagle soaring.
When DW was missing him, Bang drew, colored, cut out, and taped an eagle to the wall.

As I’m sitting here watching the Superbowl, my brother-in-law’s favorite team, the Patriots are in it again. I know from past Superbowls that being down by 12 means nothing. I’d love to root for his team.

But I can’t get past that perhaps He is sending DW yet another eagle. I’m rooting for Philadelphia.

A peak into her running schedule… It’s enough to inspire me to lace up again.

Sunday Share: Year 2, Week 3

Hard to believe we’re starting the third week of the new year. Hard to believe that I skipped my regular sharing for the first two weeks, too. I’m back on track now. How old does a new year have to be before it’s not longer a new year? I’ll say three weeks. After today it’ll be an old year. Been there, done that, though the year is far from over.

You still have 344 days to get your Christmas shopping done.

Sunday Share: Week 50

Week 50! Sweet baby Jesus, where did the first 49 weeks go?

They’re all behind us now. What a year it’s been, but I’ll save that for next week…

For now, just enjoy the season that is Christmas. 

The lights. The songs. The baking. The giving. The screaming children who are now too hyped up on sugar and excitement…
