This may be the last time I am able to blog. Ever. It has been an honor and a privilege to be able to share my family’s ups and downs. I have shared with you guys like you were my own family. I appreciate all of the messages of encouragement, advice, and support.
This is such a sad moment in my life because I blog to feel better. I blog in hopes that I will help someone else feel better and I should have known that this day was coming yet I was hopeful that this particular good thing would not come to an end. But alas, the day is near and today just may be that day.
My desktop is dying ya’ll! I keep getting a pop up that my hard drive is bad and while I have begged my husband to not let my baby die out on me, he assures me that there is not much I can do about it. So, sadly, I saved all of the information I acquired over the years in folders and prepare my self for the soon to be sudden good bye. I am now forced to work from my laptop. I hate working from my laptop. I don’t know why, I just would much rather work from my desktop. I think it has something to do with the mouse, although McRush bought me a mouse to connect to it; it’s just not the same.
Perhaps its the ability to type alpha numeric with ease as I scored a 200 on my kph test with 33,000 kph. But that absolutely does not help me with my typing skills because I currently am pushing a strong 60 words per minute but that is while looking.
Anyhow my loves, enough with the pettiness. How was your day? I enjoyed a semi Meet and Greet with an amazing woman today. It is nice to just take a 2 hour coffee break and chit chat about life sometimes. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I did bring my son with me as a form of punishment but all he took it as was a moment of quality time as I chastised him in the car but made him sit alone with his W.E.B. Dubois speech that he has to have memorized by months end as a part of his African American history lesson.
Speaking of homeschooling, it is going very well. I am excited to be able to teach them some things that they would not learn in a traditional school setting. Last week The children learned what an IRA was, the importance of saving and investing money. We are also learning about the changes in the educational system. For instance the fact that Pluto is no longer a planet, there is now a Southern portion of the ocean, making it now 5 instead of 4. In addition we are learning about the various religions of the world. We are even going on a knowledge trip to our local Kingdom Hall. Our next religious knowledge trip will be to a Mosque and I am absolutely ecstatic about that trip.
So in a nutshell, in addition to learning the academic basics we get to learn about Money, our Roots, and Religion and soon World Politics (that aught to be fun). You will not be ready for my babies when they are full of knowledge. I am striving to be as diverse as possible in every area of their learning so that they are aware of the various issues in the world and when people speak with them they will be able to have not only an intellectual conversation with the RushBunch but you will leave feeling like you have gained something from the conversation or at the very least enlightened.
