Hi, my name is: thechickadeefeeder

But you can call me: Eppie (which is not my real name, either!).

My school is: Laughing Brook Academy (homeschool), named after the Laughing Brook in the Thornton Burgess stories, such as Paddy the Beaver which I had to read aloud a million times when my oldest was 5.    

I once wrote a silly cheerleading song for our school, which is good for getting a rise out of the
guys who live here, but it wasn’t appreciated!

When I’m nervous: I am irritable.

The last song I listened to was: a waltz done on piano by Ellen Gozion (a CD called On a Lark)

My hair is: blonde/brown with bits of white-silver.

When I was 4: we moved a mile down the road to our first farm of 50 acres.

Last Christmas: my elderly mother-in-law, not understanding the conversation was about having children, said in a very loud voice to our nephew’s fianc√©:  I’m sure you’ve both been VERY busy.

I should be: eating my breakfast apple.

When I look down I see: the booklet I wrote called So We’re Going to Compete?  All You Need to
Know About Speech Tournaments in the NCFCA  (a homeschool speech competition

By this time next year: my older son will have been to Tunisia and back. 

I have a hard time understanding: math, any math.

There’s this girl: who wrote a book called Sick Girl, about what it’s like to have a heart transplant. 
Her book was excerpted in U.S. News & World Report this week.  I am thinking of her today.

I want to buy: a vacuum cleaner just like my mom’s, which I recently became acquainted with while helping her after knee replacement surgery.  It’s one of the “higher end” Kenmore/Sears canisters.  It is awesome!

If you spent the night at my house: I would have a lot of tidying up to do, first.

Most recent thing I’ve bought myself: a blouse at the thrift store.  Of course, it needs
hemmed, because I’m so short-waisted.  My friends call the Salvation Army thrift store here in town Sally Ann’s.  The one in a town further south we call Hess Brothers.  “Where did you get that
wonderful suit?”  “Oh, I bought it at Hess Brothers.”

Most recent thing someone else bought me: a bag of candy to use as prizes for speech class.

My middle name is: Elaine.  When I was in 2nd grade, I started signing my name with this, trying to
get the teacher to call me by my middle name.  But it didn’t wash.

In the morning I: do a routine that I learned how to do from The FlyLady:  1) wind the cuckoo clock  2)  look outdoors at the woods  3) drink a glass of water 4) do the allergy routine 5)  eat apple while going through email.  ETC.

Last night I was: preparing another lesson for my beginning speech students (high school level) in our homeschool speech club of 70 students.

If I was an animal for a day I’d be: either a cat (how nice to laze around for the day!) or a bird (because I would love to fly).

A better name for me would be: Overweight.

Tomorrow I am: going to go shopping while my Younger Son volunteers at the library, and then visit my mother-in-law at the assisted living center.

Tonight I am: hopefully going to continue sewing on costumes for our Pemberley Promenade.
