You know you’re a homeschooler when you are working on inference with your 5 year old and she comes back with answers like these: She was supposed to infer the meaning of each given sentence (I didn’t make her write out her reasons because, hello, she’s five.) Notice what she inferred from the sentence, “He put on a suit and tie.”  She assumed that meant, “He’s on his way to church.” I suppose that could be because her Daddy is a pastor, and not because she’s homeschooled.  Let’s move on… This time, she was supposed to infer the…

    I just completed my second week of the Whole30.  Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.  Here’s how it went:   Part 1 Part 2 Whole30 – Week 2   Day 8 — Everything is fine, as far as food goes.  I try to think along the lines of protein and produce.  Practically all the protein and produce I was eating before Whole30 was compliant anyway.  It was the sides and desserts and condiments that were getting me.  I try to make sure I eat enough at meal times so that I won’t need a snack between meals, but…

I went into this Whole30 Madness telling myself, “It’s 30 days.  Just.Thirty.Days.  I can endure anything for 30 days.”  That’s what I told myself, but secretly, I was thinking, “This.Will.Be.Brutal.  I am going to die.  Where is my consolation-bag-of-sugar-prize?”  In spite of my doubts, I was also determined.  I don’t like to be defeated by a glorified concoction of sugar and dye, otherwise known as a piece of candy.  I want to show all those goodies who’s the boss.  So I jumped in with both my feet tied behind my back. Or something like that…   (If you didn’t see Part 1, where…

    So, I’m doing the Whole30.  If you have been on the Internet at all, you will have at least heard of it.  I am on day 9 (whoot, whoot).  Before I tell you how it’s going (as in, let you laugh at my distress), let me start by telling you what it is, why I would voluntarily decide to do this to myself and some tips I’m using to stay on track. ‘Cuz this is hard enough without having to start over.   What is the Whole30?   Check out the Whole30 website, and read the books It Starts With…

  How has your winter been this year?  For me, January and February were ridiculous.  Just ridiculous.  I didn’t end up getting nearly as much personal reading done as I would have liked due to said ridiculousness.  But, then, ProjectTHINK was never intended to impress the well-read scholars out there.  It was only meant to help me keep my brain sharp, prevent my slide into the ranting and raving of social media madness, and maybe inspire someone (anyone) else.   With the winter months being so pathetically crazy, I used February to continue working on my January reading list.  I…
