Haven't posted in awhile but I am still gripping : (

I haven't posted in awhile, It's just been one of those months.... We have had happy things happen and sad things happen. One of the happy things is Roper my new horse is working out okay we have had a few episodes but mostly enjoying each other. One of the sad things is last night yet again my husband and I are at odds with each other, We were talking about my dog breeding business. He has no respect that I do WORK from home. It all started when I asked him to bring home chicken patties & potato salad, He said "Another night of not cooking me dinner" (I had gotten a pizza last night because I was at the vet's office losing a puppy and almost losing one of my adult girls in the process). I asked why do I always have to do all the cooking, He said if I worked 40 hours away from home like he does we would then be the same but since I am home I should be required to do the cooking, cleaning, washing the clothes, taking out the trash ect. I mentioned if I got a job outside the home I wouldn't be able to homeschool Kelly - He said "She can go back to regular school, She might be better off". It is sad to relize that after 23 years of marriage my husband has so little respect for me or the things I do........
Anyway, As for school Kelly and I have been discussing what we would like to do for next year - 7th grade. I asked her if she would like to go back to regular school she said no. I really feel we need more a of a curriculum driven schedule then what we did this year - I am looking again at Oak Meadow. I am thinking we could use that as a base and go off from there if need be.
Off to start another day.......

I keep meaning to look at Oak Meadow! I might switch too.

Sometimes husbands are just a pain. Just keep doing what you do. We know you're working hard and what you are doing is worthwhile. Someday, hopefully he'll see that too. It's frustrating though isn't it?
