Our local public schools are off for the day- something about being a snow make-up day that they didn't use. That's wild. We had SNOW this year, folks, and on a couple of those days, they should have used them! Should've let those kids stay home and avoid the icy hazardous roads! Alas, this is Spokane, and folks in Spokane don't believe in snow days. And I really shouldn't have an opinion, anyway, as my kids don't attend said schools. Anyway, I'm glad the local kids get the day off- it's sunshiney wonderful outside!
We are not having a day off today. On with the usual! I'm such a taskmaster. But we'll head outside this afternoon, too.
Guess what my Valentine did for me? He went and bought me a study-along seat in Processing 101 over at CM University!
To say I am excited about this is a massive, massive understatement. And as if the workshop isn't enough to squeal over, I just found out that purchasing the month-long workshop gives me access to the CM forums from now through the end of March. The CM forums are jam-packed with crazy awesome tutorials.
Jam-packed. Crazy awesome.
This, of course, means three things:
1. I will not be clothing or feeding my family from now through March. Please don't be too offended if they appear before you, dressed in rags and practically starving. I have photo processing to learn! Priorities, ya know?
2. It is a very, very good thing I did not give up the computer for Lent. On the other hand, clothing the naked and feeding the hungry are common practices for Catholics during Lent- so you see, I'm just trying to help you on your own Lenten journey. By ignoring the needs of my children, I will merely be providing opportunities for your Lenten almsgiving.
3. My poor husband doesn't realize what he just did. I mean, he pretty much wrapped up my valentine's day gift in a pretty bow and sealed his own fate of being neglected for the next month-plus. Poor dear.
|Kinda scary to think about what my laundry pile will look like when I'm actually ignoring it, isn't it? I mean, this is just a normal day's run. Hmmm.|
For my homeschooling friends, here's a happy link for your weekend: Homeschooling Held Hostage. Read it! It's inspiring. :)
