Saturday Confessions

Corydalis scoulerii Scouler's Corydalis
1) I was going to write a Saturday Confessions post 2 weeks ago when I was trying to do everything except what I was supposed to be doing. But Blogger wouldn't let me load our page on the laptop and I didn't feel like moving my pictures to the desktop.

Geum macrophyllum Large-leaved avens
2) I need to change my blog header. Big changes are happening and I'm not ready to deal with them yet but I do need to change the header. The last time I did it I think I got lucky and did it right the first umteenth time.

This wasn't one we had to identify but it was really cool. I think it's a Colt's Foot Petasites palmatus
3) I completed 18 credits this quarter and my children are all still alive. I did not get a 4.0 which bothers me more than I want to admit.

4) I got a 3.8 in Health and Fitness. The only C I got in high school was in Freshman PE. Do I see a trend here?

5) My house is a disaster! The past two weeks the kids have done their chores but I haven't done mine. Ryan and I have dressed out of a laundry basket in the family room. I told the kids if we believed in Evolution it would only take a spark for new life to grow out of the primordial ooze that was living in the bathroom.

6) We are sending Tovah and Rush to public school in the fall. I'm trying not to let the perfect homeschool mom syndrome get to me...

Orchid- I think its a western coralroot Corallorhiza maculata ssp. mertensiana. They are cool but don't smell good and aren't very impressive except in their rarity. I'm really jealous of Marsha right now, she gets to spend the next year or so on Guam and they have sunshine, orchids, plumeria, sunshine, sand, sunshine...
 7) I got an easy A in Native Plants, it was lots of memorization of latin names.

8) My plan for this weekend was to stay in my pajamas and watch DVDs and do absolutely nothing. I am finding that I really don't do that very well. I've updated my calendar, recycled all the papers out of my school notebook, put away baseball gear, folded laundry, cleaned the toilet (this was a kill or be killed situation), and taken 2 naps while watching 4 episodes of Midsommer Murder. We went to a birthday party last night because we had to go to town to return the movie I forgot to turn in earlier. Rush went to graduation this afternoon and we're going to another graduation tomorrow. Then we'll do nothing...

9) The kids have watched more Dr. Who the past 3 weekends. I've been too busy to find them alternative activities to TV watching

10) This is Ryan's last weekend working nights and I'm going to miss my quiet time while he sleeps and having the bed/ TV all to myself.
