Goodbyes are tough

Most things in life seem to come and go in waves. At some point we are meeting lots of new people. At some point we have friends nearby. At some point everyone realizes change is needed and moves a little closer to their goals, but a little farther from one another. At some point you… Continue reading Goodbyes are tough

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

Thoughts on a Monday... I've only got nine days until Davis leaves Florida and I'm not dealing with that well.  I've stretched myself too thin socially in the past couple of weeks and it's really taken its toll. I need a recharge.  My sister had a baby. Did I mention that? Also I started back… Continue reading November 28th

...okay I spoke too soon. My sister was on and off the laboring for over 36 hours and little Castiel still hasn't made an appearance. It seems things are getting going again, so here's hoping for a healthy middle of the night baby! I can't imagine being in labor that long.  Well, actually I can't… Continue reading November 26th

My ass is green and purple from falling because these goons made me go roller skating for the first time since I was five. Then they played hackeysack in the parking lot. Anyone getting flashbacks to the early 90s? I am.  A good day, all in all. Should t have stayed up until 4am before… Continue reading November 20th

There are only five more days of school before we have NINE days away from school, away from kids, away from reality. So what's going on this week? I've decided that on Friday we're having a quiz in quite literally every subject. That means no classroom instruction, and that's the point. Before a vacation is… Continue reading November 13th

mumbling of an imbecile

November 10th

I'm grateful for a lot today - perhaps because I'm also frustrated by a lot, and I'm subconsciously forcing that out of my system. Typically I'd be ready to sit down and rant, but I can't do that right now, because I'm too happy. Not ecstatic happy or over the top happy or even outwardly… Continue reading November 10th

Thoughts On a Monday

Are you ready for a brief stream of consciousness on a Monday in between conferences? Are you sure? Ooookay. Here we go! Today and the next two days are for Parent/Teacher Conferences. I didn't prepare at all, but I'm not worried. It's reassuring knowing that I do my job well enough that I could have… Continue reading Thoughts On a Monday

Worries

The things we spend our lives worrying about probably say a lot about us. It says where our priorities are. It says who we love. It says what we want. It says what we're most afraid of. It says everything. I worry about my family and how little they understand each other. I don't mean… Continue reading Worries
