Hello Everyone....

I am deborah, (sekon) is my id, 45, stay at home/homeschooling mom to a total of 5. (6...if you count my son-in-law). I have 4 daughters (21 (married), 20, 10, 6) and 1 son (15). I homeschool our younger 2 daughters, 1st grade and 4th grade.

I stumbled onto this site looking for activities for the lil girls. And I am afraid that I am addicted for sure!

I have a background in credit/accounting management, but have been a stay at home mom since 1997 when a major manic episode occurred, and I could no longer handle the *stress* of trying to be all things to all people.

My interests include: crocheting (always hook in hand, even at the pc), web page design (I love hand coding HTML), working with paint shop pro and graphics, and just being available for my girls.

That's about all for now,
Thank you for allowing me to join in....

Take care,
a.k.a. sekon

shocking WOW

Sound like you know what you are doing on this wonderful machine! Wish you could help me out, I stumble through all I do on it & am self taught.
I also admire your homeschooling
Do you do "field trips" with your kids? I have run across families that homeschool with their children out visiting museums & other sites. They told me they have scheduled visits that coorespond with their lessons.
good to hear from you

Hello all!

My name is Julie and I am a sahm of Olivia (8) and Sophie (8 weeks) We homeschool and are in our third year, we love it. Married to Kevin 14 years..... This is the first year I have not worked at least part-time in 5 years. Looking forward to the adventure of living on one income. It looks like the message boards here will keep me from feeling isolated and losing my marbles!

Welcome anjuli27

Hi Julie , Welcome to the Family

I can promise you that you wont lose your marbles around here I think it is only fair that i do warn you that the Family Corner site is very very addicting I am a FC junkie LOL There is every possible subject covered on these forums and if it isnt covered i am sure if you suggest it will become a topic As you work your way through the different forums you will find that all the boards have one thing in common.... everyone is so friendly and very helpful with various tips , tricks and answers So , if you should find yourself with a question , please don't hesitate to ask

There is a homeschooling forum which is located here or you might just want to go to the main parenting forum which is found here ( this is the forum which has the homeschooling topic in it)

Once again welcome to the Family and i look forward to reading your future posts

New on the Block

Good Morning All...can't sleep tonight -- it's 3:45 am here. My legs were very restless tonight and I finally gave up and came to my computer. Hopefully, I will get sleepy enough soon. In the meantime, I decided to check in. I missed today...slept all day long and finally got up at 5 pm, thanks to Mr. Fibro! I was so tired and didn't have anything that I had to get done.

Is anyone up tonight?

Stitcher, the doc's appointment was just to get some meds. So, it was a cinch this time. Tomorrow, I go to another doc for more meds. At least I can get them cheap.

Been having problems with Internet Explorer and it's driving me nuts. Does anyone else have problems with it? Wish I knew what to do about it. Any ideas out there? Do we have any computer gurus in the forum?

A big welcome to Julie, Jamie and Deborah. I'm very new to the forum too, and it's just great! Everyone here is terrific and very helpful.

Stitcher, my friend lives in Winfield, Iowa. Know where that is? I'm not even sure myself. And, I've never been there, but anywhere but here sounds good to me. HA! She has some rentals and I'm planning (hoping) that someday to move there and rent from her.

Guess this should really go under "chitty chat", but I didn't think first before I started writing. Oh well, forgive me!

Craftymom, where are you studying astrology and parapsychology? I too am interested in those subjects, but haven't studied it. I find them fasinating, especially parapsychology! I watch/read anything related to the paranormal and scifi.

Well, time to check out the other boards...I'm bored and up all night, I think! Later, Katy

chuckle Here I R !....

Oh yes, here I R... I've been neglecting my family ~ internet~wise ~..

Welcome into our warm friendly family; Deborah (good name... my youngest daughter is Deborah Marie.), Jamie, and Julie.... You will love it here. It's a whole new world formed of mazes that engulf you into wonderful hours of information, making of new friends, and just about anything you could think of. Amanda out did herself with this 'brain~child', and gets my praises each, and every day. Yes, Julie ~ you sure won't be bored at anytime. You'll begin to wonder just where the hours have gone!!

So, Craftymom admits to being a Family Corner Junkie... LOL.... isn't it true that after even 1/2 hour of being on, that that is what we all are?? LOL Never in my life, would I have ever thought I would be "into" this, as I am. Shortly before all this, I had no real interest in computers!! LOL

Katy ~ am hoping that Mr. Fibro takes leave so you can have a rest. How are you? I know I've neglected you also, but have been into a whirlwind with my coupon club. So sorry.. and promise to be a better friend! I can't give you any advise or information concerning the Internet Explorer, but am hoping someone else can.

TTFN ~ ~ ~ ~

Pinkie Winky Help, I fell into this site and can't get out!

Good Morning Carol...don't worry about neglecting me. I don't always expect a reply. Just glad to know you are there. How are you today? I'm ok, just didn't sleep last night and my mechanic is coming by around 8:30 to pick up my car. (he's actually a friend of my dad's). I'm having brake problems. After he leaves, I have another doctor's appointment at 9:30 and then I may sleep for a while, if I can unwind. I've been almost hyper tonight. Don't know what that's all about. Don't feel like being up and doing stuff, but just couldn't sleep. So, decided to visit here. I'm addicted!!! Doesn't take long, does it? It's so nice to be able to talk about just about anything.

I missed yesterday totally. I slept literally all day! Couldn't help it, just exhausted and needed the rest. Tried to get on the net a couple of times after I got up, but it kept kicking me out and I couldn't get on. So, watched TV instead. Boring night! Tried to sleep and may have slept a little, but finally got up around 3:30, I think.

I just love this little guy!! HA! He makes me smile!

Have a pain free day and lots of laughs! Katy

Hello :)

Hi everyone I hope every one is doing great today

katylynn: I am studying through correspondence as it would be difficult for me to attand school on a regular basis as I have IBS and some other health issues. Also , if you email me ( my email is in my profile) and explain to me your problem with Internet Explorer i am sure we can get it fixed up for you

Auntumnmum 2002: LOL about 3 minutes after i signed up on FC i KNEW i was going to be in trouble by just looking at all the forums LOL i knew i was going to be an FC Junkie , and i am soo proud of it lol I think the only other site i have ever given this much time to would be when i was making my first web page lol

Well, it is time to go and check out the other posts now but wanted to reply to you lovely ladies first

Hope you have a great day
