The last couple days I posted a status about my neighbor's political sign practically in my yard. I meant to just share an eye roll with my spark friends but then I realized I'm bothered more than I thought. One of my spark friends told me to ... Read more
It's done

The hearing yesterday went as well as could be expected I guess. I didn't really know what to expect. We met outside the court house a little bit before our appointment, went in and found the courtroom. We were asked to have a seat and th... Read more
I could use some good thoughts today

Well, today is the day. My divorce will be final. We have a final hearing in front of the judge at 1:30. It's only supposed to take about 15 minutes and it will all be official. This is not the path I would have chosen, but since that choice... Read more

I am officially 6 weeks into a 37 week school year. I don't know how that happened, but wow. Each day seems to last a really long time, but the calendar pages are just flying by. September was pretty much a wash for me. I didn't do any o... Read more

Today was a really long day. Most of my students are pretty great, but the few that aren't were totally out of control today. I just couldn't get any traction and it was like being in the middle of a game of keep away. I would go to one kid a... Read more
End of summer

Wow, the summer just flew by! Here it is, time for another school year already. As far as the weight loss front the summer was a complete bust. I'm up 15 pounds from spring break, and about 3 pounds over the last 8 weeks. I just couldn't... Read more

My son and I are having a mini-vacation. Sort of. He has appts with his asthma specialist, eye doctor, and dentist this week. The first two are specialists and 3 hours from my house so are staying at my folks' house. They are on a vaca... Read more
Easier stuff today

I'm totally lacking motivation, so I'm going to tell you guys what I'm planning for the day and then will come back and update when it's done. That way I have to do it and won't put it off. The basement still needs lots of work, but I thin... Read more
My basement - proof that gravity works
Friday, July 22, 2016      6 comments

Today was the day to muck out my basement. My basement is proof that gravity works and that crap does indeed flow downhill. Every time something needs to be moved, stored, fixed, etc. it ends up there. Every time I don't know what to do with ... Read more

A good friend of mine got married yesterday. I am so honored that she asked me to be a bridesmaid. Our sons have have been best friends since kindergarden (they are going into the 4th grade now) so we've spent quite a bit of time together at t... Read more
Long day.

I can really use some support from my friends today. My ex and I have an appointment this morning to file divorce papers. We've been separated a year and a half and he's been living with his girlfriend for almost a year so this is not a surpri... Read more
Yet again

The last few weeks I have done absolutely nothing to reach my weight goals. In fact I've regained 7 pounds since the end of the winter 5% challenge, the spring challenge was a complete fail for me. I have no excuse. The last month of school i... Read more
Yay for modern medicine

I spend a good chunk of my birthday yesterday waiting to see the doctor. I hate when I make an appointment, show up early, and then have to wait forever to actually be seen. I even told them I had to pick up my son from school and really neede... Read more
Not my story to tell

Things are going pretty well for me. I have the usual money stress, but with most of my tax refund still intact I'm actually in better financial shape than usual. I know I have to be super careful with it, but knowing there is money in the ban... Read more
A good day
Tuesday, January 26, 2016      4 comments

Today was a good day. I'm getting to say that more often, but it still bears mentioning. 2 of my classes went on a field trip so I had 2 extra hours to finish my grading and planning at school instead of doing it at home. So now I'm all c... Read more
