Modern Conveniences

We just replaced our ancient fridge and dishwasher. It is amazing to me. I can now see what is in my fridge. Not to mention I can stalk it with more than a couple days of food (I have teens). It also makes ice and gives me filter cold water! more ice trays. The dishwasher actually cleans the dishes and I can barely hear it working. I feel like I am finally in the 21 century. :) Still, I can't help to we get older the odder the things we get happy about.

We are finally able to go to Disneyland again! We have the cheaper annual passes and had been blacked out for a while. I am so excited to go on the new Toy Story Mania ride and see the new House of the Future! Yeah! Hope you day is magical!

Just how much dry information can you handle???? brain hurts! Did you know to pass your realtor's exam you have to know a little bit of conveying. With base and median lines, etc.... and geometry and algebra? Not to mention loans. I figured you would have to know the contracts that you would be using, but....? As they tell me, I won't use half of this stuff. Makes me feel like I am in high school all over again. Hopefully this will all work out. But for brain hurts. LOL

Lifestyle Transitions

Well, it seems life is only going to get more hectic...

I guess I better get use to it. :)

A break in the storm...

Today went well. The case involving homeschooling gave us a good ending pronouncing that it is indeed LEGAL to homeschool here in California! Yeah!
I had my interview and signed up for classes. Well, if you can call it that. They are at home study with the option of going to class. No attendance mandatory. So, one more door I have stepped through. Now I am at least in the hall on the way to the water cooler.
After my interview, I picked up Cameron and we went to the beach to meet some friends and Chalise. We had a nice time at the beach. It was nice to go there and unwind after such a hectic (and stressful)week. I hope life is calm for at least a little while. :) I will need to study....

Trials and Turbulence

When it rains it pours they always say and boy it sure seems to be pouring down right now. There will be a verdict on a court case that could effect homeschooling as we know it on top of many other hot spots. Almost everyone I know is involved in some sort of drama. Why is it always rationalised that someone else's feelings always count more than your own? I have never understood it. You know, like when you are upset about what someone keeps doing and when you voice your opinion you are told that it is just their personality or something similar. Does that mean you are not allowed to have your feelings? Or that you are wrong for having your feelings? I seem to be subjected to this quite often and have caught myself saying something similar to a friend of mine and then think to myself, how wrong I was to stuff their feelings. If someone is pissing you off, you should be pissed off. We are human after all and our feelings are there for a reason. Now my family is going through this all at the same time as our friends and all while I am stressed out about our life changing in major ways. I am not dealing with change well at all right now. There just seems to be something in the air.....turbulence.
