Photo Credit We have some serious computer geniuses in the extended family–I mean serious. As technology advances, so do they. This means they have veritable computer graveyards, known in the biz as e-waste. It’s impressive, really, how they can extract a skeleton and some guts from their graveyard and create the computer world’s rendition of Frankenstein’s monster. Go bro! Most of us have our own…

Just so you know: I was given a free download of HISTORY Through the Ages Hands-on History Lap-Pak: U.S. Elections by the amazing Home School in the Woods to review. All opinions are my own–okay, that’s a lie. Some of the opinions are actually my kids’, but rest assured that they’re not easily influenced…except by chocolate.  Anyone who knows my roadschooling/life approach knows I am totally into simple. Simple to…

Join The Simple Homemaker in setting mostly measurable, manageable goals for February.

How did you do on your January goals? If you did great, great! If you overdid your goals, cut back for February. Remember, make it manageable. Remember the ridiculously obvious rules for our mostly measurable, manageable monthly goals: They should be mostly measurable. It’s manageable. It’s a monthly goal. My list is shorter this month than last, because–confession time–I overdid it last month. And because my…
