We Have to Talk

“I am confused.” “I want to do the assignment on my own.” “I am not moving.” “No, others will cheat. We wont agree.” “Do we have to?” “Let’s just do the assignment. This IS the assignment. WE HAVE TO TALK. Silence the golden moment for those with sleeping infants not for teachers trying to teach. […]

Not Your Average Mother-In-Law

For 26 years I have referred to my mother-in-law as just that…”mother-in-law.” For no reason, but out of respect, and really was I worthy to call her “mom.” Just a stray out of nowhere, not quite the breed she was expecting, but one she received as her eldest fell…

Not Your Average Mother-In-Law

For 26 years I have referred to my mother-in-law as just that…”mother-in-law.” For no reason, but out of respect, and really was I worthy to call her “mom.” Just a stray out of nowhere, not quite the breed she was expecting, but one she received as her eldest fell in love with me…little old me, […]

Wash, Rinse, Repeat. Life Anything but a Game.

In this weeks adventure I mustered through my schools fall break with the fortitude of an energizer bunny. Nails completely ragged and torn, no polish left and I just might have a callous. Tired of seeing boxes neatly lined up like little soldiers ready for their next mission and a past fan of the prize […]

My Off-Beat Puzzle is Complete

      Sitting in the airport clicking my proverbial red ruby slippers and chanting in silence, “No place like home, no place like home.” While my mission was accomplished of this weekend and the hoopla of 80 years on earth seen and done, check and double check. I was alone, usually am when I […]

Woke up today to a driver that is 80 and rings the bell and alarms thy sleeping husband and huskies who now are howling with delight, at 4:45. My home became a small chamber choir as I stumbled to the door, one earring on and one somewhere in the midst of my sprint to the […]

Sweep Out

    Everyone has a dirty rug or two, frantically sweeping parts of our lives under the bulging rugs in our home feeling secure that no one will see them rising. My rugs do not bulge. Not one. Flat and happy. Clean as a whistle. Not the Martha Stewart of personal dirt, just without the […]

Shadcanit Not Yenta. The Pro-Golfer Life. No More Doubles.

My mind this week was in a constant state of pong ping inside my head. Here’s a topic. There’s a topic. Where’s the topic. Oh, many ideas, infact too many, and so they bounced, bounced and bounced. Inside my mind and out in a flash as my fingers did not feel the impetus to rush […]

Ode To Miss B.

Grammar, why grammar? Moans, and hushes fill my freshman room as I begin a story, of course true to form, on Miss Bafaloukos. A yearly staple as the story is true, and sums up my tolerance and teaching of a concept long forgotten. The art of grammar has been dismissed in many a classroom, hence […]
