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

Today all I've got for you are a couple of doodles I did while waiting for students to take a quiz. I don't draw or even doodle much but I used to and I miss it. Hopefully it'll be something I can get back into if the time ever presents itself. But one of my… Continue reading November 29th

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.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Today I have a stomach bug and a crying toddler to babysit and I'm not feeling very thankful. But that's the problem.  Thankfulness shouldn't be a mood, should it? It should be a lifestyle. Something that doesn't change. We should exude gratitude at all times, because let's be honest, we are constantly… Continue reading November 23rd

I'm a huge fan of photo posts lately, if you hadn't picked up on that. Partly it's because I am lazy. But it is also because I'm very visual, and I like to immortalized memories in pictures I can come back to later. So posting them may say less for you, but it certainly says… Continue reading November 21st

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
