February 6th

At some point it was Thanksgiving and Christmas, and then it was the New Year, 2019, and then the longest month of my entire life, January, and now thankfully, it is February. My students are taking a grammar quiz in which they have to analyze and diagram sentences containing compounds. It'll probably take them a… Continue reading February 6th

to go farther

   I came across this the other day and saved it because it hit me like a ton of bricks. In all the low points in my life, when I wasn't sure I wanted to keep trying, (for anything,) when I thought I was ready to give up all hope, when the shitstorm of life… Continue reading to go farther

Maybe I’m a Grandma

It seems we've come to that time of year again when bundling up and staying warm is pretty much Priority Numero Uno. It's about this same time every year that I remember that I know how to knit and crochet, and then out come the needles and the yarn. I first taught myself to crochet… Continue reading Maybe I’m a Grandma

Almost Over

In the past year, blogging has become one of my favorite pastimes. I've said it before and I'll say it again - it's great to encounter the vast numbers of like-minded or like-interested people all around the world. I wouldn't have even known there were so many great personalities out there if I had never… Continue reading Almost Over

Disillusioned

I had the all's-right-with-the-world bubble popped for me at a young age. I can't say exactly if there was one particular moment or event, it was just everything. I can't even remember if I ever had the illusion that life was going to be easy or smooth sailing or full of flowers and unicorns and… Continue reading Disillusioned

Post Secret

I've been reading Post Secret weekly for probably about 7 years now. I heard about it in high school and was instantly intrigued. The concept of sending your secrets to a person who posts them anonymously or publishes them in a book has a certain allure to it. I guess it's a unique way to… Continue reading Post Secret

Whirlwind

Sometimes life is a whirlwind. The things that come into your life or speed out of your life can sometimes spin you right around with their speed. It's like Dorothy said, "people come and go so quickly here!" But it's not just people, it's everything. It's life. I like to write about all of the… Continue reading Whirlwind

Generations

Something occurred to me earlier and I can't seem to get it out of my head. The thing is, a lot of people in my generation grew up with our parents getting divorced. Some stayed single after that and some got remarried. Some dated and failed, some found the love they'd been seeking all along.… Continue reading Generations

Penpals

I've always loved the idea of penpals. Despite the dying art of real letter writing, I think I'd really get into it. These days I'm sure it would be easier to find someone who would write you emails than to use a pen and paper, but that's okay too. Getting to know someone entirely through… Continue reading Penpals
