If you are from my day then you know the rest of the lyrics, “I shouldn’t have left you without a strong [post] to step to”. Like Eric B and Rakim wanted to keep the beats coming, I want to keep the blog posts coming, but sometimes life gets in the way of what we […]

Press the Quarterly Reset Bu..

For students and teachers alike, the end or beginning of a quarter or a series of 9 weeks means a chance to reflect on the old and a clean slate for the new. It makes sense in the classroom, so I plan to adopt this same mode of thinking for my life. The new quarter is […]

Spilled Gravy

When there is spilled gravy… my fridge with spilled gravy In December, I purchased Marie Kondo’s audio book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Some have referred to her book as the “decluttering bible”, so with a review like that, I knew that I needed it in my life. Since […]

Look at what I made!

For this school teacher, Spring Break does not actually mean going on an awesome vacation. For me, it actually means get your crap together because this is really the last time you’re going to have off from now until Memorial Day (a mouthful, right?).  Well, it’s true,  and a part of me getting my crap together actually includes […]

what’s changing?

Lately, I have been noticing something different about myself. I don’t know why the change is happening, but I do know that I have been more anxious, less patient, and more distracted  than usual.

Why Marriages Fail

    Earlier this month, when I was looking for ways to improve my marriage, my search did not yield the results I was anticipating. To my surprise (or maybe not so much), I found that there are overwhelming opinions about what a woman can do to keep her marriage healthy.

(Stove Top & in 1 Pot) ..

Okay, if you came here looking for the Slow-Cooker version of Chicken and Dumplings that I promised you, just nix that idea. Why?

“I’m not your Su..

He was actually my first boyfriend, and our story is not really all that different from others I have heard. Let’s see. Boy likes girl. Girl starts to like boy. Boy and […]
