Being a Mom

Wednesday, May 04, 2016      5 comments

Yesterday older DD was sick and I stayed home to take care of her. You wouldn't think a 26-year old would still need mom to come over but she did. Gave herself food poisoning and she was one sick young woman. Turns out she slept on the bathro... Read more

I love prunes and I eat them almost every day. Seven delicious little prunes keep me happy and my fiber intake in good measure. In the past I have shared my prune stash with students always calling them "dried plums" since so many judge th... Read more

Solution for My Tiredness

Tuesday, April 26, 2016      4 comments

I'm pretty sure this going in early and having the life sucked out of me by those awful 7th graders is what is making me so tired every day. I get home a bit after 2PM, eat my lunch and then just want to go to bed I am so tired. I have zero en... Read more

Loss of an icon

Thursday, April 21, 2016      5 comments

Prince Rogers Nelson died today. My older DD texted me at school and dropped that bomb on me. I have been a huge fan of his since my younger days. His music is always played very loud in my car. My kids hate it but tolerate it too. If you r... Read more

It's been a long school year....

Wednesday, April 20, 2016      3 comments

I work in a middle school with 6th, 7th and 8th graders. This year we have been having a really difficult time with the 7th grade. Difficult as in the principal had to sit in a classroom two days in a row to make them behave. Since then she ... Read more

Rough Walk Today

Sunday, April 17, 2016      3 comments

78 degrees today. Went for a walk in the park around noon after cooking all morning for the rest of the week. It started out at 43 degrees when I woke up which is why I choose to cook first, walk later. I think I made a mistake. By the t... Read more

Rice as a Protein

Thursday, April 14, 2016      5 comments

Yesterday in math class our book used the amount of protein in rice as an example for the students to figure out. "There's protein in rice?" I was thinking. So today I looked it up on the computer - yes there is. Normally I skip the rice when... Read more

Shopping with DH

Saturday, April 09, 2016      3 comments

Awoke to five more inches of snow. Very beautiful but it really is not what I wanted to see in April. Wonder how my daffodils are doing buried under all that stuff? Went dress shoe shopping with DH today. Men's shoes are so ugly. He is ver... Read more

Barkley Marathon

Friday, April 08, 2016      3 comments

Watched a movie today about the Barkley Marathon which is run in Tennessee. Never heard of it before but the movie was fascinating. It was from a couple years ago when it was the first time they had had 3 people actually finish. That "race" ... Read more

My trip to the south

Thursday, April 07, 2016      3 comments

Got back from my southern trek to Virginia. What a trip we had! First off I need to mention that I am deathly afraid of heights. Almost panic attack afraid. That being said did I mention that I had to drive thru the mountains of West Vir... Read more

April Goals

Friday, April 01, 2016      3 comments

Today I will be doing my annual Spring garage cleaning. Some years it takes me the better part of spring break to get it done. This year, since older DD and I are heading to Virginia tomorrow (hurray!), I have to get it done in one day. No di... Read more

Sick Again

Monday, March 28, 2016      3 comments

Last friday I had an awful sore throat. The school nurse looked at it and told me to go to my doctor by Monday. Well saturday I was down for the count! Sick, sick, sick. Don't really remember much about that day at all. Then yesterday I att... Read more

Purging Stuff

Saturday, March 26, 2016      2 comments

Today DD and I cleaned out our freezer compartment in the fridge. We are both pretty tidy people and it was not so tidy in there which was bugging both of us. Her a lot more since she is the one who suggested we do it. DH was gone to olde... Read more

Pandora Radio

Thursday, March 24, 2016      3 comments

Pandora internet radio has been around for a long time. Older DD used to talk about it when she was still in college many yeas back. Never gave it much thought myself until lately. In my computer lab I allow 8th graders to listen to music wh... Read more

St Jospeh

Monday, March 21, 2016      3 comments

Yesterday DD and I went to our local Catholic shop and purchased a St Joseph statue to help in the sale of our house. We have had numerous people come in and look but no serious offers yet. Last year we listed the house and 10 acres with addit... Read more
