Open Seasame

Good morning, Dear Friends.

What are you doing this morning? Oh, what's that you say - you're not even up yet? I'm sorry. Is it too early for you?

It's too early for me.

But yet, here I am on the computer before 7 o'clock in the morning, on a Saturday, with nothing special to do.

Why oh why am I up?

The Man Beast of course. He was looking for clothes. And since I'm on a silly thing called a schedule, if I wake up around 6:30, I'm up around 6:30.

I figured since I was up, I'd take advantage of a rare, cool Georgia morning. I've opened up my front and kitchen door and I hear birds chirping as a cool breeze wafts through my house.

It's lovely.

Unfortunately, it's too lovely. The Boy and Baby Gurl have woken up before 7 o'clock as well.

Need I remind you that we have nothing special planned today? We could be in bed for another hour at least, getting our beauty sleep. Instead, we're wide awake.

I wonder if today will be a productive day?

Until next time...

  1. It seems like it was the perfect morning to wake up early :D

    Afterall, there is the pleasure of an afternoon nap that could balance this day just nicely... a book, a bed... a few munchies and you...

    mmmm... :D

  2. Hasn't the weather been great in the peach state? I love it!! We are airing out our whole house, but some little fly bugs are coming in with the great air!!

  3. It's so funny you should talk about a nap. I did indeed get a nap. But I shouldn't have...because I didn't leave the house to get grocery shopping done until 5:30 last night. I went to four stores and finally got home at 7:30. The MB didn't want anything I was going to fix for dinner, so we had take out Chinese (I think this is going to be our 'thing' now).

    The weather in the Peach State has been BEAUTIMOUS! I adore it! Even this morning it's very pretty. If the MB wasn't up, I'd probably be opening up the house. Instead, we have the air on. *sigh*

  4. On nights when my hubby doesn't work, we'll often have a really late supper. We're well into Autumn weather here. Last week I got out many blankets! We are seriously considering buying a down duvet for our bed, lol. So funny to read about your air conditioning!

  5. The idea of snow or jackets is so foreign to me, Birdy. I just giggle when I hear it considering we're still seeing 90 degree weather :)

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…
