OK...so I haven't even looked at my blog in months....even forgot the web address. I decided to delve back in and saw several posts that apparently, I was too lazy to post. Here is one! Some may mark the beginning of Summer with the completion of testing or school or even the hotter temperatures and … Continue reading Summer Is Just Another Fresh Hell!
Around Here Normal is Just a Setting on the Dryer.
After spending over a decade in law enforcement, victim services and social work, we circled the wagons and brought our kids home from public school. Now, we are on year five. After the first years, we learned to lay to rest all of those good intentions of facilitating unrealistic goals of growth, having tri-lingual kids, and … Continue reading Around Here Normal is Just a Setting on the Dryer.
A Burr In My Saddle!
So there are lots and lots....and lots of things that piss me off. The biggest one centers around being Middle-Class. So, in order to allow me to vent...in depth....I have decided to focus a series of blog posts on "Middle-Class Misconceptions" and what I think about those that believe them. First.....and perhaps the biggest misconception that … Continue reading A Burr In My Saddle!
Words You May Never Have Uttered…
You may need a passport to enter another country, but you just need an open mind and some gas to reach the South. However, you may experience the same culture shock that you would endure in the Congo or African Sahara - we have similar language barriers and mating habits. You will certainly encounter those that … Continue reading Words You May Never Have Uttered…
I Am As Nervous As A Long Tail Cat In A Room Full Of Rocking Chairs.
So a few months ago my Facebook news feed was overrun with pictures and celebrations of little angels receiving numerous school awards. This week, it's overrun with first day of school pictures. Facebook has led us to a point that we broadcast every praise bestowed upon us or our little petite ya-yas. We are a homeschooling … Continue reading I Am As Nervous As A Long Tail Cat In A Room Full Of Rocking Chairs.
That Dog Won’t Hunt
It's that time of year when us homeschooling moms sit down with our computers, laptops, paper, pencils, laminators, sticky notes, highlighters, etc and plan a new year. We do research, we poll our friends, we beg guidance from strangers, and we contemplate our sanity for pursuing yet another year. We design lesson plans, calendars and … Continue reading That Dog Won’t Hunt
Stay Calm And Eat Your Milk Sandwich.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Snow Days. Seriously. I set my alarm for the time the snow is predicted to start. I can't even get up in the mornings for important things, but have no problems if snow is in the forecast! Love it. Lots. When it starts snowing, I am worthless...and loud...and dancing. … Continue reading Stay Calm And Eat Your Milk Sandwich.
Patience of a Gnat.
Here it is a Monday already and I'm forced to pick only one thing that I am moaning about for our weekly Monday Moans Event. I went through several ideas in my head and had a hard time deciding on this week's vent. It didn't help that every time I sat down at my computer, … Continue reading Patience of a Gnat.
I Was Raised Better Than This….
First of all, I apologize for missing my Monday Moans post yesterday. I was very busy moaning over the fact that my stove broke up with me. I am still processing this loss, and hope that writing will help me grieve properly. I'd be lying if I said that I didn't know it was coming. … Continue reading I Was Raised Better Than This….
Valentine’s Day Makes About as Much Sense as Tits on a Bull!
Valentine's Day isn't just hated by billions of people every year because they don't have a Valentine or otherwise, don't want to be bothered with another reason that they will inevitably let their Valentine down. Valentine's Day is also hated by mommies with little boys. Well, at least this mommy. When I just had one … Continue reading Valentine’s Day Makes About as Much Sense as Tits on a Bull!
