Planning for School

I was in the throes of planning for another year of home education. There was a panic creeping in, as I kept glancing at the calendar, counting out the too few weeks left between today and the start of the local school year.

I'm not near ready.
Forms haven't been sent to the school, final okays and purchases of curriculum and material haven't been done, and my lofty plans to organize the past few years of school disarray never came to fruition.

Then I remembered.

We didn't receive last year's curriculum until January of '11. Giving us until January of '12 to finish.
Relief, calm, exhale.

Then, the realization that I am right on task!

I am where I want to be in the planning stages for next year. This organization stuff just might pan out!

It's terribly exciting. My FaceBook business page Made by the ZooMama has just under 300 fans.

My heart is palpitating.

I'm breaking out in a nervous sweat.

The most intelligent thing I can think of to say is

"Freaking Sweeeeeeeeeeet!"

Crochet Adventures!

My husband thought maybe he was indulging me in just another hobby. Something I might start and not finish. Something I'd give up on after a bit. Yes, I do that.

Then I SOLD some of the things I made. Yeah! Really! That got me pretty excited. Now I crochet anytime I can. Mostly in the dead of night when everyone has gone to sleep. Occasionally, when Jerry has a day off, I crochet all day and finish a few items.

Some of what I've made recently is listed on my FaceBook page MadeBytheZooMama.

Check out the Zoo's new adventure, and pass it along!

Where on EARTH have I Been?

I've been crocheting!

Okay, there are so many other things, too. Housekeeping, childraising, preparing for another year of home education. We even took a short vacation! (more to come on that!)

Mostly, I've been working up hats in all sorts of shapes and sizes. I've given most of them away, but I also sold some! I'm hoping to sell more. Can't wait to see what happens with this venture~! You can find me Facebook page under 'Made by the ZooMama'! Come visit!
