More Than a Week Later...

I feel I must apologize for my small group of loyal readers. I'm sure you've checked your blog roll, your blog reader or Horizontal YoYo for an update from me and I haven't given you one - in over a week! This is no way to treat my readers and I'm so very sorry.

Life in the my world has been on the chaotic side. I've been meaning to schedule blog posts, but haven't gotten around to it. I know this is probably absolutely no consultation to y'all, but I think about you (as well as blog-worthy subjects) through out the week. I just never get to them.

I could promise to do better, but those that know me know that I'm fooling myself.

What I can promise is that when I do post, I will make them interesting and blog worthy - not just post something to say I've posted. (I really do have a lot of great ideas -- it's just getting them to the computer...that's the tricky part).

Quick update on me:

Work is going well. This week was rather hectic as MA was out for two days for a workshop. The sub was awesome and knows the kids well. But that didn't stop them from ... well, being themselves. Friday was definitely a chocolate-worthy day...and I partook in some. Oh yes. I did.

Church is going equally well. Most weeks, I wish that I could bring my laptop to church and immediately post on whatever it is I'm thinking about. It's good stuff. Unfortunately, I lose it by the time I get home, get lunch, and spend time with The Man Beast and Kiddos. Maybe I should take two notebooks to church - one for sermon notes and one for blog notes? On second thought...maybe not.

Weight loss is going well. I've had some set backs (most notably last week where I gained two pounds...Golden Corral is the culprit - there is no getting around high calories, fat-laden food down here in the south) I'm doing much better this week. I've lost all the week I gained plus some (maybe it was water weight?)

I've been checking in with my blog roll - keeping up on all my blog peeps. If you coupon, be sure to check out Keeping the Kingdom's coupon preview for tomorrow's paper. There four inserts this week!

Until next time...


  1. I just wrote a comment and lost it. lol. Go me!

    I just wanted to say hi and thanks for the comments on my blog, they mean a lot to me.

    Good Luck with your weight loss. I know how hard it is.

  2. I've missed you!! I know you have been busy, hence why I haven't bothered you. lol

    BLESSINGS dear friend.

  3. Thanks, ladies...I'm always hovering near by...LOL

  4. No need to apologize! Life gets busy at times (always). I've been struggling with coming up with blog posts myself...

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
