I will just break it down:
1. Homeschool - mostly it is going good. My daughter is struggling keeping it together and remembering to turn her work in (it is a global problem, not just public school), so we are going to try and see if we can figure something out this weekend. What would help her - a planner, a daily 1st sit down with me, phone reminders - whatever, we just need figure it out.
I am still struggling with science. Either it is too creationism slanted or we are slogging through. We may just have to slog through because I even the creationism slanted one is difficult to implement. As science parents, we are always talking science, but the more particulars at higher level they need.
Everything else is fabulous! They are doing current events 2 times per week, one being international and they are loving it, so am I. It sparks such great discussions. In history, we are in the middle of the Civil War and I gotta tell you - I am so done with it! I cannot wait until this unit it done. LOL
Math is good, they are progressing in writing and we are holding off the foreign language until fall and start it off like a normal year.
Overall, I am pleased - oh, and yes, I am still grading daily - easy 10 minutes tops with coffee first thing in the morning.
2. Finances - Well, I gotta be honest here, we were trying to refinance our home, but I just don't think it is going to happen. It is a lateral move at best with added closing costs. So, we are just going to stick with the craptastic mortgage company. We will not refinance. Once our debt is gone, we will pay it off as quickly as possible.
As for the debt payoff this month, AH, we have not sat down yet, it is on the docket later today or tomorrow - honestly, probably tomorrow. I have customers coming today, our daughter's theater class, errands, etc. I will post that probably Monday.
3. My Business - Threaded Lines. Yeah, so I put out the hand sanitizer holders and I love them - they are not getting much, BUT, I think these are a in person type thing. However, what this did was bring in business for the key fobs - specifically an Episcopalian Shield.
I sold 15 in less than 24 hours. Plus, this garnered someone to ask for a custom fob. So, I had to digitize the image (for embroidery) and it turned out fabulous! OMG! I am blown away that I have this ability. It is just the beginning.
|This is what I digitized and how the embroidery turned out!|
I sold 10 of those. So 25 fobs in 24 hours. 2 T-shirt quilts are coming in today. I am back in the game!
