Old High School Hurts

The other morning, I awoke to a cold, rainy day. I got the kids off to school and made the long commute to my office via the staircase. I sat at my desk, my coffee in my hands and my feet propped up, listening to the rain. It was a few minutes before 7:00a and it was still dark outside. I knew any motivation I might have to get dressed and go to the gym was slowly fading away. I needed to do something to cheer me up a little, and to keep me from commuting back to my bedroom and crawling…

7 Questions New Mom's Should Ask Themselves before Returning to School.

This guest post was written by Kellen Thompson who has also written at length about receiving accounting degrees online as well as enrolling in online classes.



When I was seven months pregnant, I graduated with my Master's degree. At the time, I thought that if I was blessed to stay home with my baby even for a short time while my husband worked, a Master's degree would benefit me when I re-entered the workforce. My employer was also… Continue

Ejected

Saturday was Elliott’s basketball tournament. We live in a small town, so her tournament was not an all day, all weekend kind of event. There were only four teams in her league with a single elimination tournament. Being from a small town, every team had at least one of Elliott’s best friends on the roster. Since the start of the season, I think she had played each team at least four times, so she kind of knew what she was up against.

The Girl Store - Buy Her Life Back

“Experience the sensation of buying a girl… her life back”. That’s the baiting, provocative but so very clever intro of the Girl Store website, effective at demonstrating how a girl child in India can be “bought back” from the perils of being sold for marriage, sex slavery, labor slavery or terrorism.

The Girl Store, run by…

My students are the best!

It's been a while, and this week has been packed. I work at a boarding school for underprivileged kids and every year we have "Creativity Week" where teachers split up into groups with students to work on projects. The students and teachers come up with ideas for the projects and then get to pick which they want to participate in. It's a great week where we get away from textbooks and homework and have FUN! My group is doing "Pamper Day". We are volunteering at a homeless shelter giving the… Continue

Girlfriends = Sanity

Looking back at my life, I see how important my girlfriends are and were in my life.  From keeping me out of trouble; being the voice of reason; having my back; providing free therapy sessions; making me laugh through my tears; and just plain listening when it seems no one else could -- my girlfriends have all made lasting and important contributions to strengthening and supporting me in times of need. …

Four-Day School Week!

This is going to be a bit of a short post as I have once again been hit by the crazy stomach bug (my second this year already!) and even sitting here at the computer is taking up valuable energy. However, before I hop into bed I needed to comment on an article that caught my attention through the British Mummy Bloggers forum about one of the…

The Day School Closed

I am watching the great blizzard of 2011 raging outside my window. There is a fire in the fireplace, homemade salsa simmering on the stove, and a glass of Irish whiskey within reach. Life can’t get much better. I had nowhere I needed to be today, and I have an appointment tomorrow, but if I don’t make it, it’s OK.

 

School was closed today and it has already been cancelled for tomorrow. I don’t think the girls have gone to school for a full week since before Christmas. I am…

A Sexting Failure

There were three things I promised myself I would never write about when I started my blog…first, I would never write about my mother…second, I would never write anything that would cost me a presidential election…and last, I would never write about sex.

High School Sucks...And Then It's Over! Mary's Story

Yesterday, my daughter Mary, who is 22, and I took Sandor out to play tennis. I've always wanted a child to play tennis with and now my hopes lie with my youngest boy.

 

  As a pre-teen, Mary tried to play tennis, and several other sports, but they were all miserable and almost embarrassing failures.  We laughed and had fun on the court but she was a beautiful, smart, spaz who refused to even…

Long Term Concerns & Wishes

I spent the better part of my afternoon filling out a school application for Norrin. One application. Nine pages long. I took my time, printed as neatly as possible - even at the end, as my wrist began to ache. I needed his application to be perfect; the application was…

The Common Denominator

What do teachers and students have in common?  They're all people.  Too often, this similarity is overlooked if not entirely forgotten.  Teachers good and bad fall into their roles, and students, often with some resistance, follow suit.  Ignoring humanity in our school systems does no one any favors, and it only gets worse as the government focuses on test scores and statistics instead of on students.



As I considered who to highlight here, the choices seemed endless.  I could choose… Continue

Back To School: mUm, Where Did I Put My Book?

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/back-to-school-now-where-did-i-put-my.html

If, like me, you are counting the days 'til Summer holidays take a hike, then you are also getting ready for the back to school madness that, somehow clings to my, almost 11, step-daughter, and probably, most children this age!



This whole back to school madness, with missed lunches, dog ate…

Becoming a stay at home mom part four....

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.





We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.

Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so…

Using Leftovers for School Lunch

Running out of ideas for your kids’ school lunches? Nobody wants to eat the same lunch day after day. That’s why LEFTOVERS are a perfect idea for lunch.

There are many dinner foods that can be made into a nice lunch and it will be super convenient for you so you won’t have to prepare something new in the morning!

Life is insane and never catching up

I must have been kidding when I said that I would have more time to
blog, amongst other things, when my daughter started school. Life has

Marker discrimination? Who knew??

All my daughter was required to bring with her when she started

Kindergarten, other than a backpack, was as listed on her class web

page:



A supply box labeled with your child's name

A pack of colored pencils

A pack of washable markers



The school will supply anything else that is needed.




Shortly before school started, Kevin had picked up her required

supplies. Since we had waited until last minute to pick up her things… Continue
