So I fell down the stairs the other day. Landed so fiercely that the bruise color looks like my right ass cheek sat in a blueberry pie. Mind you, the fall was only two stairs, like two actual steps, not flights of stairs. I wasn’t paying attention, I was...
In case you got lost... this is a supplement to the blog "No Joke:How Not To Treat A Volunteer….Lessons from the trenches from a Class Mom on Probation". You might want to read that one first. This is just an add-on of another story that has been lingering in...
Well, I’m not technically on probation, but I am waiting to find out if I’m fired. And no, I’m not kidding. See, I usually kid and joke about stuff quite a lot. I find it human. I think it’s good stress relief. And most of the time the people around...
The kids are going back to school. Without me. Just kidding – I’m sure I’ll need to be there for a PTO meeting, training about how to behave in the library, volunteering in the library, concerts, art shows, art class volunteer duty - here’s your glue, book fair, holiday fair,...
I have had a near death experience. Not really, don't panic. The dogs and I went on an early evening after dinner walk. The kids of course didn't want to come, and I wasn't in the mood to argue, so off we went, two dogs and me.  It was still...

I do not like winter. And I live in New Jersey, where we have six months of it. Even though we have 12 calendar months and 4 seasons and common core standard math-wise that should mean three months a piece, that is a lie. One big wintery icy...
Trust me. You want these things too. The only problem is that they haven’t been invented yet. I bet the new year can make it happen. Christmas (and Hanukkah, and Kwanza, and Yule) has come and gone and I’m still picking up pieces of wrapping paper that have hidden themselves...
I will admit it. Thanksgiving is stressing me out a little this year.  Don’t get me wrong – I love Thanksgiving – it’s actually my favorite holiday.  If Thanksgiving were the only thing I had to do I’d be fine. But there’s all this other stuff in my life...
