Miss Me?

I haven't gotten around to updating my blog roll and since I'm on The Man Beast's computer (shhh, don't tell), I probably won't do it right now. But since I have a full week off for Fall Break, I'll get to it definitely, without a doubt. (Okay, can we get real - I might get to it. Those of you who regularly check in on me from time to time, I do appreciate you putting up with me - organized and predictable, I am not - except that there is always a slight chance that I won't always get to what I need to get to.)

I've been waiting all week for this day. I had to stay after school for two hours yesterday so that I could get off two hours earlier today. And it wasn't until after I had left, that I realized I left a few minutes before 1:30 - oops. I'll stay late on Thursday to make up for it.

I have absolutely no plans for this Fall Break except a lovely visit from my MIL - THE Coolest Woman Alive (TCWA for short). While she doesn't live but a short 1 hour drive away, it seems like it's been forever since we've all gotten together for visit. Considering the last time we saw each other was right before school started (first week of August), I guess it has been forever. Still, it's going to be awesome to see her.

I'll also be seeing Monster Mama, my SIL. Her little monster is due at the end of November. The Man Beast and I provided the first batch of grand babies - which is special. But this baby is TCWA's only daughter's first baby. Oh, and did I mention that this baby will make me an aunt? Is that the coolest or what?

Since I'll be home all week, expect to see some updates to the blog. I've got some ideas that I'll want to implement - like making daily blog posts! (But for those who don't know, Blogger - and I'm sure other blogs do as well - provides a scheduled publishing option. This means that when I have time, I can write up blog posts for future days. Crystal, over at Money Saving Mom, does this with both of her blogs because as she puts it, she has a life outside of her blog. So do I. So do you. But I still like to be here. I still like to share.)

Since it's October, be prepared to see some breast-themed posts. I feel very strongly about prevention and taking care of your body. I have not been personally affected by breast cancer, nor have any women who are close to me - but that does not diminish the importance of taking care of what yo' mama gave you.

That's all for now...


  1. I always miss you..I keep on looking to see if you put one of those trackers on your site..if you did, you would find I am the stalker. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL


  2. You get a week long fall break? Cool! Of course, we do too, but only from school, not work.

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
