He Budged! & Brain Builders

13 Jan

Another weekend at its end. Currently I’m listening to G~ have a meltdown because E~ budged on the stairs. It’s a common complaint around here. The competition between the boys has really gotten out of hand. They fight daily about who sits by which parent at supper, who is first in the van, who gets which car seat, who stands on the stool to brush their teeth. It’s really annoying. J~ & I are reading a book called Sibling’s Without Rivalry hoping to glean some ideas on how to lessen the competition between the two. On an average day, they are each others best friend. They play so well together & have a great time together. I know they won’t always get along, but sheesh, today was really out of hand.

We had a decent weekend. We cleaned up the basement on Saturday & had youth group today. J~’s hopefully applied his last coat of mud in the shower tonight & will be able to paint the tub this week & then get the shower surround up possibly next weekend.

I found a couple of websites to help you waste time while increasing your brain power. One is www.freerice.com While you increase your vocabulary, you can donate rice through the United Nations to end world hunger. My highest level is 40. My other time drain is this site which tests your world traveler IQ. I’ve finished as high as Level 8. What are your best scores?

    Thanks for the links to the quizzes … I shared the geography at work and everyone started playing the quiz (we were waiting for the press to roll). It was pretty funny to hear people say,
    “Where is that?” or “Ha! 51 km!” Thanks for the links. My co-workers thank you.

    My geography is poor. I can’t get past level 5. I did get level 40 in the vocabulary link though.
