Who is Doc?
Someone who once chronicled the homeschooling of 4 active and bright children. Now I’m thinking, why give that shit away? Fuck that, I’m going to publish. Better late than never 😉 Along the way I gathered like minded individuals around me and together we pioneered some online secular homeschooling. Trust me, you don’t need that shit – if you found this site, just say “thanks” and move along to the next entry. I did some stuff though – I helped spark some discussions about the dark side of homeschooling – The Pearls and their ritualistic child abuse techniques, and the people who support them and allowed themselves to be exploited in the name of selling a book or magazine. It got me interviewed for Slate Magazine. It allowed me to meet Ree Drummond when she was just Ree my friend, and (according to her) was the inspiration she needed to start her own blog – and the rest is history. I have made many friends; the good ones have followed me away from here.
I’m a backwoods Oregon hick. Liberal, but not insane about it.
I’m still a mother of four beautiful (adult) children, who were homeschooled, moved along in life, and are either married or partnered or just happy. 6 grandkids and another due in spring of 2016. They all live nearby, 2 on farms of their own. I’m super proud.
I was a retired scientist, then homeschool teacher, then student (Business – Eastern Oregon University 2014), and now business owner. I’m currently (2016) getting my real estate license, since that’s a new hobby and earning commissions instead of paying them is a bonus.
I am a farmer. Just goats, a garden, and shit ton of weed. Legal weed. Award winning legal weed.
Once a sister and daughter, my siblings and parents are gone, all victims of their own demons. I’m breaking the mold and living to 100.
I am a human, complete with faults, and maybe a little wisdom.
I don’t blog anymore. In fact, I took my posts down. You can find me in person here: My Twitter.
If you’re not a complete idiot, you can probably find me elsewhere. However, should you decide to be weird or stalk me, I won’t give you a second chance. And I’m much, much, much smarter than you. Haven’t I already proven that? 😉
