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

hyena reality Eventually, I will write a lovely end-of-the-year post (probably entitled something original like: "What I Learned as a First-Year Teacher"), but this morning, I want to write about something a little bit different. The differences between  my life as a paraprofessional (teacher assistant)  and my life as a teacher . I'm sure many of you are aware that I began my life as an educator, not in the classroom, but in a lunchroom. After I had home schooled The Boy and Baby Girl for a couple of years, it became apparent that it wasn't working out any more and some changes needed to be made in our family. So, on that fateful day in November, I dropped both of the kiddos off at the Little Elementary School Around the Corner, The Boy, a 4th grader and Baby Girl, a 1st grader, while I headed off to work in the school cafeteria.  As a substitute cafeteria worker, filling in for the ladies who had to be out for whatever reason at various schools around

One of a Million New Year's post

Look around and you'll see that most everyone is posting some type of New Year's blog post this week. Check your blog rolls (or mine) for proof. I've looked at A Year in Review blogs, the best of the best blogs, most read posts blogs and my favorite: the new year resolutions (solutions, challenges, etc). Call me crazy, but I love these type of blog posts the best. Why? Because while most of us never keep our resolutions longer than a few hours days weeks months, there is something magical about the New Year. It is a chance to change whatever it is that was messed up for you during the previous year. Common resolutions include: 1. Stop smoking 2. Lose weight 3. Get organized 4. Save more 5. Spend less 6. Get to the project that is sitting in the basket, closet, or garage 7. Spend more time with family Did I hit them all? These are on most people's lists. (By the way, stay tuned for the end of this post for links to sites that can actually attempt to acc

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.) Paraprofessionals Vs Teachers Calendar Reduction Days – “Yay! I get another day off. Yeah, it kind of stinks that it’s a Calendar Reduction Day, but hey – a day of
