It's been a long, emotional day

Just a quick post tonight, guys.  Sorry to disappoint those of you who really enjoy reading my long ramblings.  They'll get longer again...just as soon as I have something worth saying, am not nursing a headache, and have not had  an emotionally trying day.

Baby Gurl had a dentist appointment today at 10. We didn't get out of there until noon.  The chair she was in was right next to the waiting room I was sitting in.  She cried.  The dentists fussed.  And I read a book.  I had to!  If I didn't, Mama Bear would have been in there rippin' the room apart.

Baby Gurl is very proud of her 'new' tooth and had to show everyone at church.

Totals for today - I honestly couldn't tell you.  I know I was up at 7.  We left the house at 9:30.  We got home around 12:30 or so.  Had lunch.  I took a nap on the couch and then left for WalMart to do grocery shopping at 4.  Got back at 5 or so.  Made dinner, finished reading my book (I'll be blogging about that on Tuesday) and got ready for church.  Church at 7, home by around 8 or so.  Sat here with The Man Beast and watched an episode of the Dresdin Files and here I am, blogging to you.  Not as much computer time today.  I'm sure I'll make up for it tomorrow, in between taking the kids to the library and looking for a place to live.

Until tomorrow...

  1. Well, my day was messed up all day yesterday. I got up did the house cleaning and started packing some stuff up and then all crazy broke loose. So, I don't really have an exact total of everything. lol

  2. I think being conscious of what you're doing is just as good a practice as actually logging each and every thing.

    I will today to be a better day! LOL

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
