Writing again... [Feb. 12th, 2004|06:27 pm]

Well, here I am. I have decided that it might be cathartic to begin writing again.

I've been sick this week, but prior to that, things were going really well.

I began taking an herbal supplement I saw advertised on TV. I normally don't buy into what I see advertised, but I felt the time was right to at least put an effort to fix some things.

It's been 6 weeks and I love my "Purple Happy Pills" as M1 calls them. Avlimil. Brought back my sex drive, and my drive to live and love and cope. It's great!!! I feel human again for the first time since August of 2000.</p>

I started homeschooling the kids. Actually, we are Unschooling. It's child-led learning. I just couldn't stand to see what the schools were tyring to do to my kids anymore. M2 had an A in conduct and A's and B's in all his subjects. Yet, for some odd reason, even after not even coming close to borderline ADHD on the Connors eval, his teacher was calling me once a week insisting I have him privately put on meds. It would seem he "asks too many questions". Pardon me...Isn't that part of a teacher's JOB??? So the guy was so lazy he wanted him zombified so that he didn't have to do his job? I think not.

This week, well, not so great. I came down with some evil flu and I really wish it would find it's merry way out the door. The kids are doing great with being at home and I'm happy to have them with me. I'm just sick and I hate being sick. And I'm not even gonna get into the crap my husband has decided to start up with.

So right now, not so happy...but I'll be okay. No matter how rotten I feel, I'm still getting through my days and getting things done...which wasn't happening the last few years.

Hey I don't know how the hell I got to your journal but I took a few minutes, in between printing reports and read a bit.

This entry caught my eye about home schooling your *kid/kids.*
How do you like that? I have a 2yr old son and I have thought about the whole... home schooling I just wanted to get your opinion on it. I think that public school has alot of *other* influences that I don't really think are appropriate. Just like all the teachers in america wanting to medicate the kids... that isn't the first time I have head that. Anyways.. I just thought your journal was intersting and wanted to say hi and get your 2 cents.

Have a great rest of your day!

I think homeschooling can be wonderful. It's one of those "you get out of it what you put in" kind of things.

Public school infuriates me more and more. Due to some major life changes as of late, 2 of my 3 kids are back in public school and I'm truly not certain how long that is going to last before I lose it.

Good luck and let me know if you have any further questions or need any resources.
