For the bloggy audience...

I have blogpatrol and know that you all are there...out yourselves! Due to pressing projects, I can't write much at the moment (it is currently 7:41 p.m. on Thursday). So kindly entertain me. Drop me a line in the comments section, will ya?

Contribute a comment. Or complaint. Or suggestion. Or short question (like, "What shampoo do you use?" Any curricula-type questions kindly e-mail to me, as I take my time with thoughtful answers).

After writing your comment, bugger off.

Ok, I'll bite. I have been reading your blog for a long time since I'm in NYC too (Queens, actually). I remember way back in December or January I was grappling with the homeschool decision. Having a fellow Noo Yawkah who homeschools and blogs was a big help for me - there aren't many of us, LOL!

I got inspired by the cool things A did and felt we could do it too. So, here I am. My name is Angie, I have 3 kids (11, 9, and 4) and only the 9 y/o is currently homeschooled (long story, check out my blog for the gory details, lol), and my other 2 are in public school. I am an unschooler at heart, but J prefers some structure on occasion.

I love Manhattan and don't get there as often as I'd like. I plan on changing that soon though! I mean, we're only 10 minutes away so I really have no excuse.

I still consider us new at hmeschooling, so any advice would be greatly appreciated ;)

Thanks for a cool blog that helps another NYC h/s'er not feel so alone.

Hurrah for nycitymomx3!!! It feels great for a real Noo Yawkah to call *me* - a New Yorker-wannabe from Miami - a Noo Yawkah! I feel so cool now! You can e-mail me anytime at maitresse@gmail.com

Heh, great picture. I have you on my bloglines - to read the feed, so I don't click on over unles I feel compelled to comment. Seeing as it's 9:39am and I am only half-way through my first cup of tea, it may not make much sense at all.

I have never been to NYC but I would love to go!

And now I have to buger off and get my own work done. :D

About getting a microscope--We found that www.microscopeworld.com had better scopes than Carolina. Look at the high powered, Researcher Series ones. They'll work for your son all the way thru college. Pricey, for sure, but worth the investment.

OK, so...what kind of shampoo DO you use?

Just kidding.

If you had to move to an isolated area and could only take 3 books and 3 movies, what would they be (and why)?

I'm always hanging around, especially now that I'm on my maternity leave! I like reading your blog because it gives me good ideas for future planning. And because you're spunky! And I love NY, so I live vicariously through people who live there.

"If you had to move to an isolated area and could only take 3 books and 3 movies, what would they be (and why)?"

The Alchemist, 100 Years of Solitude, and my own book (once I've written it). The first one because it's eternally relevant, the second because all my hispanic friends have read it and I feel like a dope for not having done the same, and the last one to remind me that even in an isolated area, I always have a good tale to tell.

I Capture the Castle (DVD) - because I'd need to catch up to the Denim Jumper Book Club.

The Wizard of Oz - because isolation would drive me batty. I had a bad year once, and I watched that movie ad nauseum. I was never sad.

Love Actually - because I am a sucker for Bill Nighy. And always will be.

What is blogpatrol? Some sort of counter? I'd normally look it up, but that would answer my question... I love hearing about A's learning adventures. Thanksfor sharing them. Oh, another question: How does a transplanted southerner like New York winters? --Jac

It's a counter, yes. www.blogpatrol.com

I still am not used to New York winters! A already seems to like them. That doesn't stop me from spending some winter time in Florida, though! And I used to hate the beach...; )
