I'm not one for drugs, but...

I have to say that this Diet Pepsi Max is outta sight!'s got MEGA doses of caffeine. And I dare say that if I didn't have it surging through my system, I'd be a walking zombie.

I got home, put in a load of sheets and made up a grocery list, picked up the kids, went shopping. Then I came home, started making dinner. I made my bed, put Lynne's sheets in the dryer and DJ's in the wash. Then I swept and mopped my kitchen floor and I'm getting ready to go make Lynne's bed and get her in the tub.

I will shoot in the kneecap the person who dare says that I have *just* a part time job. Bull puckey -- I have a part time job on top of a full time job of running a house. Hubby and I both work -- but all the household duties fall to me.

I'm thinking I might have to sit down with hubby and talk to him about the possibility of putting a load in the wash in the morning before he leaves for work. Or making the bed. Or doing up breakfast dishes. Or even turning off the lights.

He won't help unless I ask. Home has always been my jurisdiction and he's always been good about doing something when I ask. Well, I'm going to go about crazy if I don't have him doing the little stuff...just getting things started will be a huge help.

I'm going to have the kids pitch in more, too. Everybody 'works' now -- so that means everyone helps around the house.

So says I


  1. Um, I think you know what a Diet Coke Addict I am, but after reading this post, I have to say that maybe I SHOULD try that Diet Pepsi crud...if it gives you that much energy, wow...couple that with my two cups of coffee in the morning and I would be rockin' and rollin' all day long! LOL

  2. It has extra caffeine and ginseng to boot. If that doesn't get you off and running, nothing will, gf!

Life as a Paraprofessional vs Life as a Teacher: Part 1

Life as a Paraprofessional vs. Life as a Teacher: Part 3

This is the third part to a 3-part series chronicling my take on the differences between a job as a paraprofessional and a job as a teacher. (View Part 1 here and Part 2 here.)

Let me preface this list by saying that I believe that paras and teachers have the potential to equally rock the education world. They can love and nurture students in a way that only an educator can. They can help students become great.

That said - there are some definite differences between paraprofessionals and teachers. This list is not to say one is better than the other. Rather this is meant as a tongue-in-cheek comparison of how I perceive the differences of a paraprofessional's job and a teacher's job. (And any teacher who has worked as a para or vice versa should be able to relate to my list.)

{Planners for the Rest of Us} 2016 Uncalendar End-of-Year-Review

It has been just about a year since I started using the Uncalendar my mother gifted me last year. I received another one this year (this time, from The Man Beast). I thought it would be an excellent time to update readers on my usage of the Uncalendar this past year - what worked and what didn't.

If you have fifteen minutes to spare, feel free to click on the link below in order to see the video version of this post.

The Uncalendar Lifestyles Pro is a three-ring binder undated planner that comes in red, blue, or black. I received the full-size version, but the company also provides a half-size version of both the Pro and the regular Lifestyles version. The Uncalendar website has pictures of their products as well as upclose screen shots of the pages. The company also provides a skills center meant to help Uncalendar users get the most out of their planner.

After watching just a handful of Uncalendar videos (seriously, there aren't a whole lot available - at least when you co…
