Oops, I did it again…

It has been over a month, once again, since I've been here. I have been plagued with what seemed at first to be allergies, but became a never ending cold, and eventually culminated in a sinus infection. I finally left work early to take myself to the doctor last Monday and got a ten day… Continue reading Oops, I did it again…

My Latest Hangup

I've been gone a long time, and I've missed being here. But I think it was only in a moment when I was letting my mind wander, unrelated to blogging, that I realized why my desire to write hasn't translated into a real post as often as it used to. I was sitting and thinking… Continue reading My Latest Hangup

Hesitation

I have become the master of hesitation. Whether it's deciding to put metaphorical pen to paper and write a damn post, or grading the papers I need to for school, or getting the exercise in to prepare for the Camino, or doing the soul searching it takes to make the big decisions in life... oh… Continue reading Hesitation

yo ho a teacher's life for me

Amusement

I'm always amused by the things that come out of my students' mouths. Today: Kid 1: "Last night I told my mom about how sound waves have crests and troughs and when there is a high frequency there is a higher pitch. And she said where did you learn that?! and I said at school! and… Continue reading Amusement

Let the Good Times Roll

I think there are much better times to make life altering resolutions than when you're in the hot seat that is New Year's Eve. So I don't do that anymore.  Instead I'd like to spend today marveling at the year that has passed with all the good, the bad, and even the ugly, that has… Continue reading Let the Good Times Roll

November 30th

We've quickly come to the end of November. How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday it was Halloween, but then suddenly things like Thanksgiving came and went... that's hardly fair. October and November are my favorite months of the year and now both are gone. December is next. December tends to drag on… Continue reading November 30th

November 18th

Today was the last day of school before vacation. It dragged. But now it's done.  Tomorrow is my next younger sisters 24th birthday. We are celebrating tonight at a Brewery and then having dessert at her house. It's going to be an interesting crowd.  Her baby is due Tuesday but it could come any time.… Continue reading November 18th

mumbling of an imbecile

November 1st

Will this once again be the beginning of NaBloPoMo for me? I've been posting so little lately, I have extreme doubts about my ability to come up with something worthwhile for 30 consecutive days. While I sit here and mull it over let me just throw a couple of facts out there. The worst day… Continue reading November 1st

Silence

It makes sense that after talking to eight year olds all day that I wouldn't want to continue vocalizing, come end of day. But what is quite inexplicable is that I cannot find the words that have been squashed back for another time - the words whose time and place is not an elementary classroom… Continue reading Silence

Something Different

Several people have voiced a desire for me not to leave this blog, and that means a lot to me. I am still struggling a little over the idea of what to do, but in the mean time, I have a link to share with you. I had mentioned my friend who wished for us… Continue reading Something Different
