I made a big change to my 'work' world by choosing to return to the special ed field. By the time I was 60 minutes into the first day of the school year (Sept. 6) I was beginning to doubt the wisdom of my actions. ... Read more
Life is not always good for some.

I'm so very stressed right now. While at work, I can't even get a bite of food down for a number of reasons. Let's just say that sometimes the behind the scenes shenanigans that go on at a work place can be horrendous. Happening at a school m... Read more

Can't belive it! As I walked away from the computer and thought about the date (DD #1s birthday on my mind), I realized that once again another Sparkaversary was upon me! Three years ago tomorrow I joined up here and turned my life around.... Read more

Today is just a 'regular' day but one I am thankful for anyway. Perhaps a regular day is one that we should be the most thankful for. Nothing horrible happening. No big huge projects to be done (well, other than some marking to get caught up ... Read more
Another perfect day!

I finished up some parent/teacher interviews tonight and am sooooo glad that I spent a long, long time with the last family. Somehow or other, I always seem to be blessed with a fabulous of group of kids. Should I add to that fact that there a... Read more

On a side note, I've just finished reading the book called My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor. The book actually came out a couple of years ago (2006) and I wanted to read it then. You know how it is, I already had a pile of books to re... Read more

I think the holiday is finally mine! Despite finishing teaching last Friday, I’ve been busy all week. Christmas Dinner is all over and done with (other than the leftovers, of course) since we celebrated early this year, this past Monday. My 2... Read more

My heart has been heavy these last days because a dear Spark friend (also a fellow teacher at a neighboring school) has lost yet another sweet baby. Each baby was anticipated with great love and but released to their Heavenly Father much sooner... Read more
Are all weekends busy?
Sunday, October 24, 2010      2 comments

Why is it that our weekends seem to fly by so quickly? It seems we come home from work on Friday shaking the dust off our feet to get into 'weekend mode' and before you know it! Riiiinnnnng! The good old alarm clock is shouting at us to get o... Read more

I've been AWOL for a bit and I've not 'prospered' by doing so. It truly does help us to keep ourselves organized and on a regular schedule/ Have I done that? No. Have I made any progress in any areas of my life? No. Perhaps that isn't enti... Read more
Argh, I grew bigger.

I have a sneaking suspicion that my fall and winter clothing are going to be on the tight side. I haven't tried them out yet since our weather here has still been warm and I've just been wearing summer weight clothing that was bought this summe... Read more

Today was a day focused on cleaning, gardening, and wrestling with my laptop. The cleaning and gardening were accomplished but the computer won the battle with me, hands down. Apparently, somehow or other I've picked up a sly little virus who ... Read more

Today after my physio session I stopped by the shop that was the setting of my 'Spinning Class of Horrors' fiasco to talk to the owner. (see my previous post for gory details) I wanted to go by and let him know that I was okay after the crash... Read more
Crashed, burned, banned from spinning.

Well, I did the spin class. I didn't want to but I had been advised that running was probably not going to happen for me again because of issues caused by a previous surgery. I finally decided that I would have to move on with my life and tr... Read more

EDIT: I had to come back and write this now!!! I did not write the message below. I copied and pasted a Motivational Message in my 'in' box from SparkPeople because I wanted to really think about it and write about it. I can't do it now sinc... Read more
