A Saturday Evening Post

(Is that considered a copyright infringement?)

Happy Saturday, y'all! I hope everyone had a great day.

I spent my day cleaning (of course). I actually got around to cleaning out my refrigerator today. It hasn't been done for a couple of weeks. There was nothing growing in it...but there were little drippings here and there.

I took the kids and the Boy's Friend to the park today. It was nice! It wasn't quite cool enough to open up the house, but it was nice. I didn't check the temperature, but I'm sure it didn't get any hotter than 85 today. Maybe it was because the humidity was low?

I took a video of my kids with my digital camera. I'm contemplating whether I should air my dirty laundry or not. After all, with the Back to School slide show, my crew looks calm and even tempered. I'd hate to destroy your illusions. But, on the other hand, it might just make you feel better, just like Saturday Mom Confessions makes me, as a mom, feel better. You know - to let you know that you really aren't alone (and no, as your friends, they really aren't just saying that).

I'll give it some serious thought.

I'll leave you with this blog. I don't promise that there is nothing offensive on the blog...but it sure is funny - if I baked more, I'm sure I could claim some of these train wrecks myself!

Until next time...

  1. hiyas,

    I love to cook, but not really to bake, although I do sometimes because there is no equivalent to homemade bread and cookies.

    we cleaned out our refrigerator earlier this week too. but it was because up here we had a really horrible wind storm (due to Ike colliding with a cold front from the north) and almost everyone here went 3 days or more without power. And after a little more than 24 hours without power you have to pitch quite a bit. but at least now the refrigerator is nice and sparkly clean.

    definitely a nice feeling :-)

    hugs!

  2. Isn't it amazing how we take so much for granted until we don't have it?

    I am glad y'all are safe, even if it meant going without electricity for awhile.

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…
