Week In Review

Filed under: Home and Family,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 6:39 am


Boy was it

This makes a mother so proud.  My Home Schooler has struggled with reading for all his life at last he is able to read to his brother and is even getting into easy chapter books

moved Our Little Mans bed back into our room
He has a lot of separation anxity and hates sleeping in his brothers room
He likes to be with his daddy or me
We are hoping having his bed in our room will help
Tonight I was a real blonde (forgive me blondes) I think I did one of the most dumbest things I ever done
I got my car stuck on our front yard
I wanted to park up there
Took our wonderful next door neighbour and Mr Wonderful to help get me unstuck
We watched this on TV I thought it was very very well made

This morning My Home Schooler and I went shopping

Mr Wonderful took Our Little Man with him today

one of the things they did was

Later Our Little Man told everyone what hed had done.  He has never been to a barber before.  I usually shave/cut the boys hair myself

As well as the normal Thursday grocery shop I gave 2 big bags of clothes to the Salvation Army
I dont think i will be having anymore children and Our Little Man has grown so there was a heap of 2 year old clothes and hes almost 3
and I had a sort out of my clothes too
I could have put them on to trade me but I couldnt be bothered loading the auctions
and then as I was there I saw a 50 cent sale for clothes so got My Home Schooler 3 pairs of pants
that boy is forever putting holes in his
also got 2 books for the boys
Im so excited My Home Schooler is reading easy chapter books now 🙂  🙂
and Our Little Man loves Bob the Builder and hammers LOL
i could get hooked on op shops (if I wasnt so into trademe – would save on postage :))

Im feeling good the vitamins I brought last week seem to helping:)

Late this afternoon we went to the library

Tonight we watched the last part of this very good TV program

went to the library again (got some books for studying in home schooling in Term 4) and looked at an op shop

I am a depressant who takes meds.  Today I started taking St Johns Wort and reduced the meds I take –  have the meds right in the cupboard if I need more of them – I wont hestiate to take myself off the St Johns Wort  if I need to and go back to the full dosage of my meds – it would be nice to wean myself fully onto natural meds though – Im doing this carefully though as the side effects without my meds isnt the nicest

start thinking about the new term


Went out as a family to see one of Mr Wonderfuls sisters and also Poppa

seems Mum Wonderful is getting better at long last

late this afternoon and after dinner too I had a big clean up in my office/school room

while I did this the boys (all 3 of them) were working outside with our wonderful next door neighbour


This morning the boys and our wonderful next door neighbour finished the job 🙂

I found a cool new group this week and if your a NEW ZEALANDER I think its worth checking out

heres the address

only wish Id known about this before I took my clothes to the opshop 🙂

  4. Glad you’re feeling better, Jen. Hope you can wean yourself off some of your meds, but please be very cautious. We don’t want you suffering any ill effects, dear heart.

    I’ve followed your blog for over 2 years now so I know what a huge accomplishment it is for your Homeschooler to be reading even short chapter books. Yay!!!

    Hope you have a great new week, Jen. 🙂

    Love and hugs,

  9. Way to go on the chapter books, and reading to his brother too!!! An accomplishment to be congratulated. It’s always a great feeling as a homeschool mom to see such progress. Good job to you both.

  10. I always love your weeks in review, Jen. Praise God for the Homeschooler’s reading success. My mother had reading difficulties, and always felt stupid. Isn’t it nice that we’re living in an age of (at least a little)more celebration of diversity? Praying that the SJW will help ease you off the other meds. Blessings.
