It only seems organized because it's in list form

A few things to catch up:

1. The chocolate was gone by Monday night. Let's not speak of it ever again.
2. My sister had a slight cold when she got on her plane on Thursday. By Friday night she had bronchitis.
3. It's after 2pm and I'm still in my pajamas.
4. I don't plan to rectify this until just before Isaac comes home from work.
5. So far none of us are sick. Yet.
6. The only productive thing I've done today is to buy this clock from Pottery Barn Kids.
7. I told myself that it's a homeschool expense since it will help teach time.
8. I really did buy some real homeschool stuff, too. I bought the Math-U-See primer program for Chloe. She has been driving me crazy lately with, "Mommy, what's 9+1? 5+3? 63+102?" She was watching the promotional dvd with me and suddenly could answer for herself what 9+1 was, even though she didn't understand it at all the 217 times I tried to explain it to her.
9. I think I will post the next installment in the story of me tomorrow. It might just be the last one. Of course, when I started writing, I thought it would be three posts long and not eleventy-three, so I could also have twelve more parts to go.
10. I just bought Chloe some new clothes, and they're all falling off her. She is so skinny that she needs a 6 in the waist but a 7 for length. Any ideas on cute brands that have skinny sizes?

As far as jeans I like the ones where you have adjustable straps inside the jeans. My Daughter has the same problem yours does, so I can buy her a 7 and use the adjustable straps. I don't know where you live, but I buy mine at target or Meijer. I think Kohls has them too!

I love that clock.
My sister has the same problem with pants (I, on the other hand, am short and chubby. My problem is finding pants that I can pull up all the way, and forget about pants that don't drag on the ground). Yeah, the pants with the elastic adjustable straps are amazing. I'm pretty sure that all of Old Navy's girls pants have them.

I should have mentioned that I need to threaten her within an inch of her life to get her to wear pants with buttons on them. The ones we do have use the adjustable straps, but I am searching for comfy-waisted pants so that I have one less fight on my hands!

Hi!! Cute blog, and cute tagline!!

I have a son with Chole's problem. I buy all his stuff at the Gap. They make slim, and adjustable waist. Even in the slim pants, I cinch the waist A LOT. Hope that helps!

Glad to know I'm not the only one that occasionally stays in my pajamas until almost time for the hubby to come home!!! Sounds like a good day!

watch number 3 and 4 on your list...Isaac just might come home unexpectedly with his boss to introduce you like my husband did last week ;)

Good for you though...I love p.j's, and homeschooling for the reason that we can do whatever we want...when we want.


I don't iron....EVER!!
