I've got nothin'. You probably already guessed this from yesterday's post. Life is feeling as though it is back on keel. The doctor's appointments have slowed to a slow trickle. School is going quite well and the schedule is working far better than I had hoped. Life is looking pretty normal and average and everyday-ish. I really don't think it is that different from other families.
While crises, new children, new pets, disasters, and dramatic breakthroughs are excellent blog fodder, it's nice (really, really nice) to be in a more average moment in life. It does make it a little more difficult to come up with things to write about, though. I've been mentally planning a huge post about why I think computer-based education is a mistake and why it seems as though it is the educational equivalent of snake oil. I'm not ready to write it yet, though. G. and L. are perpetually giving me good material, but I'm also aware that ones children are far more interesting to the parents than to the wider public. I can always come up with something to write in regards to homeschooling or adoption, but it also feels as though much of that would be a rehash to what I've already written somewhere else on the blog.
So what do you want, you faithful few who read every day (or at least regularly)? I'm sure this moment of quiet won't last (though I'm enjoying it while it does), and more interesting things will present themselves to write about, but in the interim, I'd rather not spend too much time gazing at my navel. (I've given birth to seven children, trust me, I don't want to gaze at my navel.) I'm open to suggestions... questions... topics...
Of course, my secret fantasy is that some person will decide that sending all of us on a 'round-the-world trip which I would then document with probably hilarious results would come true. That doesn't seem terribly likely, does it? (Fall is a great time to travel, by the way. Hint. Hint.)
In the interim, though.
