All about themes

Several of my favorite blogs have been talking about themes. Oh wait...I've been talking about themes, too! As it happens, I would like to talk about the theme of my blog...and clear up any misunderstandings...and perhaps even give a few apologies.

First, I've noticed that I have quite a few new readers. Hopefully, through reading some past blog entries, you've gotten a 'feel' for me. As I mentioned in my Breast Cancer post, I don't take much of anything seriously, including myself. This blog pokes fun at a lot of things - mainly me. But I understand that some people might take it the wrong way or might even taken offense.

I can't possibly make excuses or apologize for everything that might possibly offend you, Dear Reader, so I'll apologize for the one and only thing I can apologize for - my ramblings. More importantly, all ramblings. As in, the word 'ramblings'.

An on-going theme to my blog is ramblings. If you look to the side of this post, you'll see a list of tags that I use to organize my blog posts. I call them ramblings, mainly because they are. If you look further, you'll see that that my blog is called 'Others' Ramblings'. This is no way cheapens or makes fun of your blogs. I find that more often than not, many of you have some pretty heavy things to say. I love reading them...which is why I've included them on my blog roll. But in keeping with the whole 'rambling theme', they are called ramblings.

But I hope you know that I know that they are anything but.

I just felt the need to clear things up. You know, just in case.

Until next time...


  1. Whatcha' talking about, Lewis? (from Different Strokes, maybe your to young to remember that show, lolol.)

    Iva, dear, no worries from me. I love reading what you blog about etc etc. BTW, I love your new look here. I love the new 3 columns you have. So much easier to read. And no, the Gator ain't changing hers to 3 column. lololol


  2. I like the look of your new blog.

    Linda I remember that show I used to go around saying that all the time when I was little.

    Iva, Ramble on with your Ramblings. I love reading them.

    Sorry that I haven't commented much, but, I have had comment block. lol

  3. You think I ramble? I'm offended!

    Okay, not really. I hadn't even thought to be offended. Until now, but no matter how hard I try, I can't be offended. Besides, I DO ramble...

  4. LOL, y'all are great.

    Linda, I remember Diff'rent Strokes. But I believe the line is 'What you talkin' 'bout, Willis?' (I watched a bit too much TV as a child).

    Bobbie, I love that you come visit. That means a lot to me.

    Ronnica...I don't think I've ever seen you ramble. But I'm glad I can't offend you...that's good to know.

  5. My ramblings are no longer included in your blog roll..... I know you are prolly still working on it, heehee.

    Anywho my ramblings are a bit fewer and farther between now that I have to dictate to my hubby much of the time. I wanna put up a funny pic of my hospital bed but I haven't gotten around to taking one yet.

    Love your ramblings, never been offended, just fyi :-)

    Take care and hugs to you and yours,


  6. See? You just have to remind me every now and then. I added you :)

  7. I hope my blog blubbering about what people like or don't like in a blog made you write this. It wasn't at anyone specific. I love your ramblings and your theme! I wouldn't keep coming back if I didn't!! Keep it up!!

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
