Give Away at Secular Homeschool!

Give aways are a good thing, don't you think?  I personally like to go through all of my closets and rooms and give away just about everything.........well, not really, but I sometimes get stressed about 'stuff' and want to have less of it.  January seems to be the month when this nesting instinct hits - does this happen to you?  Or am I just weird?  I wonder.

Right now I have gathered a mondo pile of 'stuff' in an old laundry room just waiting to bust out one day in the form of a garage sale or an all-out-no-holds-barred eBay mission.  I am looking forward to neither, but it's my own fault for collecting all of this 'stuff' in the first place.  That should teach me.  I am giving considerable thought to buying much less, or at the very least, subjecting purchases to an intense period of questioning.  Really!  My new philosophy is 'REJECT, REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE'.  Reject means that you try not to purchase things that are overly packaged.

Anyway, back to the give away that is going on right now at  It's a great book written by an experienced homeschooling mom named Marty Layne and the book is titled:  Learning at Home:  A Mother's Guide to Homeschooling.

Ms. Layne successfully homeschooled her four children to adulthood and for that alone, she is my hero.  Her chapter on burnout is probably worth the purchase of the book!  At least in my mind.  I'm signing up for the give away for sure!  You can, too, at, if you like.  The lucky recipient will be chosen on January 31st.
