I’m not dead yet…

on May 29, 2010

First, because I like this song and love this video: And second– My last post was pretty damned bleak, so I thought I’d check in and tell you all that: Seriously– I”m doing much better. I spent a day or two sleeping and eating chocolate and doing some snuggling and some knitting, and now I’ve… Read More

Limping Through the Finish

on May 27, 2010

Okay. I just begged my oldest son to not talk to me. The debacle of my school year is complete. I can’t even BEGIN to tell you all how awful the last two days have been. My third period yesterday… was horrible. They tittered all the way through the final, they whispered, the tried valiantly… Read More

Phone book

on May 25, 2010

hee hee hee… Okay. So I’m easily entertained. But “Phonebook” is now available at Dreamspinner. The reason I’m so entertained is that, in spite of being the worst edited blog on the web, that title up top is NOT a typo. It seems that the only way they could get the damned thing to post… Read More

Sleepy Saturdays…

on May 23, 2010

Sort of. First of all, thank you, everybody, for the hugs and good wishes. I was trying to be very grown-up about the whole thing–turns out, I was just too tired to recognize that we’re all little kids, even when we’re forty-two. Anyway, that’s another blogpost, today’s will be quick and simple and hit on… Read More

So much to blog about, so little brain pan…

on May 21, 2010

Honestly, at about seven o’clock this evening, I was thinking about blogging, and I was all for it! I had a lot to talk about– I mean, here’s a partial list: * Zoomboy’s Open House * What Squish yelled at her sister yesterday (“Stop saying ‘douchebag!”) * A few students I’m going to sincerely miss… Read More

Emotional Punctuation

on May 18, 2010

I used to think that punctuation was THE most boring part of writing. A comma? Who cared. A period? The difference was? Of course, then I put out three books with a punctuation glitch, and suddenly, punctuation was no longer boring. Suddenly it was a big, scaly, venomous monkey on my back who kept stuffing… Read More

Off to see the Wizard…

on May 16, 2010

Actually, literally. Big T’s high school put on a lovely production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’. T’s film club had been filming a documentary of the rehearsals, and so he REALLY wanted his family to see the play, so we did. I was going to tell you that the Wicked Witch stole the show, but… Read More

This time, it’s just the picture…

on May 13, 2010

I am SO in love. And this takes some time to load, but that’ll give you time to find something to bite, So you don’t choke on your tongues! (One of my students showed me how to find this site. I l-o-v-e him!)

A redemptive epiphany

on May 13, 2010

Okay– see, the thing is, I’ve got a meeting with my boss tomorrow. Now the last time I had one of these, it threw me into a week long depression. I was told that our demographic completely changed, and yet our falling test scores were still all my fault. I was told that I needed… Read More
