There is a bit of nerve-wracking anxiety when looking over a list of names and not having a clue as to who and what each of those names evolve into on a field trip. Despite my history as a teacher (which I think adds to the anxiety because I know how hard it is to […]

Mental Dribble

So, arguing doesn’t help much to resolve the feelings I have, and my biggest issues probablywouldn’t be that much an issue if I could simply use some energy to get them out andorganized. What is it that is keeping me unhappy right now? Amazingly, to some critics, youwould think marriage overall. However, it is more […]

One of THOSE days

On Wednesdays, Gizmo goes to Pito’s house to play and Pito gets to dog-sit his grand-pup. As soon as Gizmo hears the Kaliadascoping clack of my roll bag handles he runs for the door, because that sound only happens on Wednesdays, and only on Wednesdays is he allowed to get past the back door and […]

We are training Gizmo to balance things on his head. Justin and I were going through Chuck’s pictures on Dooce.com and decided Gizmo was smart enough to learn the same.

Just got back from my Saturday Mother’s Day dinner @ Julie’s Waterfront, a small “greasy spoon-like” place right on Lake Julie in Orlando. Outdoor seating, with lush reeds, nice breeze, and right in front of the water. Food was wonderful, and menu included vegetarian. Yum Yum. JP didn’t want to go. Gary and I shared […]

Justin and I spent most the afternoon together, pulling him out of school for yet another follow up with the Dr. We were starving and went to get some Sushi. Kinda fun picking out Sushi with your twelve-year-old who is taller than you, and noting his ability to suck down raw fish with Wasabi on […]

Another day in the front lines of the modern “higher” educational system and the reality that I still contend with a whirlwind of experiences and personal filters worn by a sea of diverse faces. Yack-Yack-Yack. I carry on, trying to draw on stories of my experiences and a wondrous blend of movies to turn the […]
