Huh? Time Flies...Uh Yeah...

What would I do without Pinky? She dropped by and reminded me that uh, I haven't been here in a while...OoooOOoOOops! :)

It's not that I haven't wanted to, but well...OMG this past month...the past couple months...CRAZY I tell ya!

BUT...Good News!!!!! SCHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!!! No, I'm not talkin about the kids, they have school all summer to prepare for their "new beginning" in Sept (more in a bit on that) but for me...I'm finished for the "year"! Now...I am just waiting for my grades...My goal was the president's list (yeah, Im a nerd like that) but I, unfortunately, know I am not making it since I missed a couple assignments so I won't have all A's. *sigh*sob*sob* :P I know I passed everything, but I am still curious :)

Times...they are a changin' (I'm in a singin' mood tonight ;)) .... So, the new beginning...well, as much as I love homeschooling...and it pains me to send the kids off into the crazy system of "public" education...so must it be. Come September, they will be subjects of the system. I hope to continue with my "personal" education, but it is up in the air right now...as financially, it is getting difficult to juggle it all...but, I have hope! Wanna hear it? If no, stop reading here :P

My plan for the summer is to sew like a crazy mo-fo and learn the workings of the Miva Merchant shopping system on my server so I can do seamless e-commerce without all the third party crud pulling it apart. I will be setting up my online store over the summer...I am my own test subject :) Additionally, as public school is going to be a HUGE adjustment, especially for the younger, I will be getting a job outside the home, but not until he is settled in. So, this past couple months has been alot of researching, contemplating, deciding, changing my mind, researching more, contemplating and deciding again!

So, there it is...in a nutshell (ok, a large nutshell)...and with that thought, there is a little girl falling asleep on the sofa in the other room who needs some attention :)

TRANSLATION: :)

hehe...I went tech nerdy on ya! Miva Merchant is a shopping cart program that websites use. I have a server...place to host websites...since I do freelance web design and offer "hosting" as a service. So anyway, I have tried using other programs to make it so that I can sell stuff online, through my website, but it never worked out for me...so when I say seamless e-commerce, I guess I meant unflawed :) lol I have had to use paypal as a shopping cart and they charge fees and add stuff on (hence 3rd party comment). Now, if I have confused you any more than before, then just nod and smile...or if I am making sense, nod and smile ;) I ramble and think aloud...alot...my blog is my victim! :)
