Dear Blog

Dear Blog, I just don’t know what to do with you as of late. I rarely post, and when I do I feel that I always post about being so busy, nothing to insightful!  I started my blog over 3 years ago, I posted 2-3x per week, had regular readers, loved reading other great ladies…

Snow Days and Being a Working Mom

I am a working mom.  There are times, I wish that I did not have to work!   I stayed home with the kids for 5 years, and I am so thankful for that time.  But now with a 15 year old and soon to be 13 year old, I am working.  At times it’s HARD,…

Silence is golden!

I walked into the computer lab at school the other day to get my computer upgraded. My son just bought a new iPod Nano, so I needed the newest iTunes version.   As I entered the lab I was suddenly overwhelmed by the silence! There were no classes in the lab at the time, just…

So I am driving down the road………

I am driving down the road the other day, praying, and thinking. Since I was alone in the car, this was possible. I realized that I have been suffering from the “I used to” syndrome. I have been feeling very guilty about the “I used to” syndrome and now I  feel like I have been…

Random thoughts

Every blogger needs a random thoughts post every once in a while. So now it’s my turn for some serious randomness. 🙂 I start back to school next week, I am not in the school mode yet! Summer has been so nice for us, and I guess I am not dealing with the reality that…

Keeping it all in perspective…..

I was complaining to a friend I saw out this morning while at a yard sale ( have I mentioned how much I love to yard sale?) that I am sick and tired of waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat! I am a women deeply entrenched in evils of perimenopause….

Snake handling and Fifth Disease

Just found out today the cause of what I thought was a weird spring flu. I had joint pain, a fever, hand and feet swelling, TIRED, rash etc. I have Fifth Disease, normally a childhood illness. It’s one of those things that if adults get it, it’s worse then when kids get it. So my…

We need to leave at 7:15am today!!!!

I yelled to the kids this morning, “we need to leave by 7:15, I have a meeting at school at 7:35 and I can’t be late!” It was 6:45am, and I still needed to eat, pack SportTman’s lunch, find some clean pants in my laundry mess for my son, and try to find 5 min….

What makes YOU great?

I have been sitting at my laptop for the last hour or so working on a Jr. High Sunday School lesson for tomorrow ( yes, I waited to the last minute to prepare!……And yes I actually enjoy teaching Jr. High age kids!). The lesson is mostly about the disciples bickering about who is the greatest…

A snippet of a mom’s life

At this very moment I am eating these delicious multi grain tortilla chips and salsa cooking chili for dinner writing one of my student’s IEP’s doing a load of laundry ( actually the only time I am not doing laundry is when I am sleeping, but even then I am probably folding the laundry in…

Christmas break is officially over…..

The alarm rang at 5:45am this morning, it was tough getting up and getting back to school. I need coffee, was my first thought. But my second thought was, I need Jesus! I need the Lord to walk with me through this life. It seems when you are a teacher your life revolves around the…

It’s been awhile…….

since I updated my blog. I have been so busy with my job. I must admit it has been an adjustment returning to work full time. I can not imagine having a job where you work year round, don’t get home until 5:30-6:00 and need to bring work home! I am done by 3:00 everyday,…
