Okay, not to be a complete moron with technology that I own, but does the Kindle Fire have a USB port? I only ask because I frequently request books for the Kindle Fire from the library and due to copyright something or other many times they can't transfer wirelessly to my Kindle. It wants me to transfer using a USB stick. My problem? I can't stick the stick in the Kindle.
When did we become one of those families that eat four dozen eggs a week?
I was just talking with a girlfriend how February used to be the month that went really slow and you would beg your friends to take your kids for the day. But now? We don't have a single free day until after we get back from the farm in March. Seriously. I think homeschooling should be redefined as "the situation in which a family never finds themselves at home for a full day ever again."
Byzantine Catholic Lent starts on Sunday night. Last Lent I made a skirt everyday for 40 days. That was a really good idea because not only did I have three kids to homeschool every weekday, but I also had baby number five during Lent. Since this year our schedule is noticeably calmer during Lent, I decided I probably couldn't handle another challenge like that. Not sure what I am doing yet Any suggestions?
And no, I don't give up food items during Lent. I am not really a foodie, and giving up sweets when we rarely have them in the house seemed kind of silly. Sacrifice without challenge seems pointless to me, and giving up food items is not challenging for me.
I usually try to focus more on the needs of my kids during Lent. I make myself more available to them. Translation: I spend most of my time feeding them. Seriously.
