Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Homeschooling, No Problem!

Darlings, perhaps your wee sprites are home with you? Perhaps they are not even so wee? Does the word “homeschooling” make you want to run away run away? Please don’t panic! Here are some good and kind words to help you settle in and settle down.

A Potluck Life and Advocates for Homeschooling in Massachusetts, Inc., you each get one pingy-dingy! Thank you for your wise counsel, your love of and respect for kids and parents, and your great, big, generous hearts! I love you!

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”) As I undergo treatment for breast cancer, however, I’m just going to post whenever I can manage.
