Heads-up for homeschool moms

I had the funniest dream last night.  I was at a homeschool conference and had paid $15 to attend some kind of unspecified special session.  We were all seated in an auditorium when the presenter and two helpers instructed us to all put on our coats.  There was a flurry of activity as we obeyed.  Then on the floor at the bottom of either side of the stage the helpers turned on two tall black smokestack-looking machines, which hummed and puffed out some kind of mist.  The presenter told us all to lay down as best we could in our seats, snuggling down in our coat-blankets, that the mist was going to help us all go to sleep. 

By now I was thinking this was all pretty weird, so I was fighting the effects of the sleep-mist, looking around and trying to figure out what was going on.  The rest of the gals in the auditorium started passing out poppies-of-Oz style.  I struggled to stay awake, on my guard, while most of the alloted session-hour went by.  I was getting pretty mad by now at the false advertising and waste of our money. 

At the end, the presenter woke the audience and said,"Okay, ladies, this is what this was all about.  Most of you moms never get enough sleep so we thought we would build a nap into your day. You may go now."

Ha!  So either I was really tired...or you need to go and get a nap!!

    Oh, that is so funny!!! I can just picture that happening - and how enfuriating! Oh well, at least they meant it well. I definately could have used one of those machines the other night, since I pulled an all-nighter with one of my dear friends.

    Speaking of which, I was so sad I didn't get to visit with you, and I wanted to tell you thank-you for the mug, the chocolate, and the paper-organizer! The last most especially: I am loving it to pieces, and I am so glad you gave it to me! Thank you! I have transfered most of my stories to it for easy access!

    Anyhow, I love you, and I can't wait to see you after Christmas! I will miss you!



Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate you taking time to comment and being part of the conversation.
