�I seem to have run in a great circle, and met myself again on the starting line.�
― Jeanette Winterson

It's a magical world, and I am exploring. (to paraphrase Calvin)

***end of 2014*** I need to get re-focused and make exercise a regular part of the day. Since losing 20+ pounds with SP several years ago, my life got somewhat complicated, and the weight started creeping back up. As 2014 ends, I'm rethinking what I need to do to reach my goals.....

Don't let that teacher get away with it! I have an IEP kid in my class who works his butt off and his teacher keeps losing his work. Like, for real. And she doesn't have the class to just admit it, much less apologize. She keeps trying to imply that the kid's ADHD and "organizational problems" are to blame. What kind of person would use a kid's diagnosis to cover her own mistakes? Of course I'm much too fine a person to shoot spitwads at her... (but there's still time).
Hang in there, mom! And just know that teachers as well as parents (and students) get frustrated with this unprofessional behavior!
(My car wouldn't start this morning and I drank too much coffee waiting for a jump, can you tell? LOL)

Umami, HI!
Sorry I'm so late responding... Did you take your kids? I'm the wrong person to ask probably (about whether a movie is okay for kids), as I was always picky picky picky about violence but more relaxed about sex. Uh, in film, I mean. I took the girls to The Full Monty when they were pretty young - on purpose, b/c I thought it had a light-hearted kind of view about "body" stuff. Not crude and not giggly, which was (and is) a rarity. On the other hand, I didn't let them go to some PG-13 movies, due to impalings. I mean, please. But don't forget, mine are 23 and 29 now (holy chitola, how did that happen?). Things have changed.
In other words, I'm kind of useless.. I'm feeling old now ::sigh::
