The Discovery

In early January I made a discovery that is really going to change my life. Our lives. It's going to impact our jobs, our income, our debt repayment, our budget, our family dynamic, our health. It's going to make some parts of life a little difficult for a time as we adjust, but at the… Continue reading The Discovery

Things Change

Things sure change don't they. I don't know what's changed, I just know that it has. I have fallen into a rut from which I'm not sure how to emerge. It's gotten into all the little crannies of my life too - my mental space, my physical energy, my ambitions, my relationships - the whole… Continue reading Things Change

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

Hello again…

It seems unreal that the last chance I got to assemble a post was just before Irma hit us. I feel bad that I never resurfaced to say that we were okay, but I'm here to say it now. We didn't get power back for what felt like forever, and internet and phones took even… Continue reading Hello again…

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

Once again

It seems that it's that time of year again. I've fought the last month or so of going stir crazy quite well, I think. No crazy hair cuts (yet), no running away, no bad poetry written. But it's that time of year for me.  It doesn't help much that I've spent the past week investigating… Continue reading Once again

November 13th

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

November 6th

November 6th has been one of the very best days I have had in a long time. We all have days when things are going well and we get through the day without incident. Frequently, little things will happen that we are appreciative of or just thoroughly enjoy. But it is rather rare, I think,… Continue reading November 6th
