So my dad kept the kids for the weekend [after bowling] and Gary and I basically moseyed around doing stuff of little consequence. The highlights were a small treasure in the mail, bowling with friends [and getting the bumpers up for my turn,] watching Jack dance non-stop between efforts to heave a 10 pound ball […]

So, today is my birthday. I have gained another year and am teetering on the edge of 40 (which, I hope, is finally making my parents proud because I am catching up to them :-P). The week has been filled with anticipation (of the “Hurricane”), weathery teases (T.S. Fay clinging to Florida like a baby […]

JP has returned to the classroom, starting the 8th grade. The week leading up to the infamous return to school included the usual motherly duties of shopping for clothes (the kid had to be coaxed out of the dressing room with threats about taking away gaming opportunities or favorite foods), the purchase of school supplies […]

Well, now that my web-friends are growing, and I am opening up to exposing my blog in more places I have started to have second thoughts about using my full name as the domain. Certainly, you can still get here with my original domain name, but I expect your feeds will have to change (Sorry). […]

I finally figured out what I want for my birthday, and it started with a student who stopped in after the mid-term to tell me to see Carol our Registrar. Carol has some little guys that need a home and apparently my hubby told her to “talk to the wife.” So, that is exactly what […]

And it starts again… As I work through pages of journal entries and attend to the posting of grades, I again struggle with the ongoing inattention of students to the responsibilities of their own education. I watch dollars slip through their fingers, and knowing so deeply the challenges of keeping my head above water, learning […]

Dream Carnival

Posted on August 10, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | Comments Off on Dream Carnival

This morning, in the lull of sleep and awakening, I found myself tearing through a carnival of a dream, so much so, that I am not sure I wasn’t running around frantic all night long and I feel really worn out this morning. If you are not into reading the details of a dream – […]

Today is the 13th anniversary of the birth of Justin. In the last two hours before having the opportunity to write this my head was filled with all kinds of stories to write about. I called my sister to inform her that I officially had a teenager today. She said, “It’s your birthday too!” “No, […]

Evelyn in 1954Evelyn in 1968This is just TOO funny. I was visiting TxPoppet’s Canned Laughter website and caught a glimpse of a comment she made about a yearbook picture in a tweet. I followed along and ended up in a giggling fit. I noticed I look like Grandma with those horned-rimmed glasses! AND 1994 – […]
