Happy Monday

Crazy Casa KOops!  It's Tuesday.  LOL

I got this from my friend over at Woodstone Prairie and decided to take her up on it.

Things that made me happy yesterday... hummm?  Well since yesterday was a federal holiday, dh was home.  Normally having dh home isn't always a good thing.  He tends to get cranky when he sees how we do things when he is here.  But yesterday he had a project to keep him happy...and he was.

I started a new math program with Darly and while she complained a lot about having to do it, she didn't have a hard time with it.  I'm happy that I was able to find a lesson that EXPLAINED why she needed to know this.  She gets so frustrated with math because it is all "Just Do It" and when she asks why the only answer is "because I said so" which of course isn't good enough for her.

But of course as soon as I got up to use the restroom she left and was gone.  However, I managed to get my main goal done.  So we're good...and today she can just double up.  right?

That's about it for being happy yesterday.

Today is still youngish.  But this morning I took Lilly to the vet for her 12 week post-op check up.  This is her final check up on her ACL surgery.  And the vet was very happy with her progress.  she has about 1/4 of an inch of muscle mass to build back up on her leg, but has been progressing very well...so much so that I've had to start being the mean mom again.  Silly dog still thinks that she can fly.


  1. Math was always a tough one for us too. We used Saxon, and I would try to stay a couple lessons ahead of the kids. About the best I could do was a C average! Glad to hear Lilly got such good marks from the vet. I think you can take most of the credit because you took such good care of her.

  2. We tried Saxon for math. But Darly HATES repetition. Once she's got it, it is time to move on. So after the 3rd lesson she was tried of seeing the lesson 1 stuff. At lesson 4 I told her just to skip lesson 1 and do just the previous lesson problems. I think we made it to lesson 5 before she quit. I don't blame her one bit.
    It's okay, she has the math genes in her, we just have to harvest it. ;)

  3. I have nothing good to say about Monday. But I do appreciate you posting a Monday button on a Tuesday. That's so something I would do.
