Saving Money with Honey

I love to save money when I can, whether it's through phone apps or using coupons. These days, in-store coupons that don't include an app have taken a back burner just because I don't have the time to devote to it like I once did. If you're anything like me, each time I shop online I… Continue reading Saving Money with Honey

It was Friday the 13th

I'm not a superstitious person.  Friday the 13th has always been just another day for me. It's one of the 4 to 5 Fridays in a month that just happens to fall on a number that comes after 12. There have been 55 Friday the 13th's since the year I was born, 1984. The first 54… Continue reading It was Friday the 13th

It’s All About the Atmosphere

I know this is a "mom blog", but I really wanted to share a cool success story in my classroom! I teach 3rd grade gifted. My kids are kind, loving, sweet, curious, and VERY active.

Ear, Nose, & Throat Appointment

I've been meaning to update for weeks.  I have an entry sitting in my "drafts" at the moment that I keep coming to and adding to, but haven't finalized.  Things have been hectic, and I'm ashamed to say I don't think I've even updated since we moved! Seems like forever ago. There's much to update on,… Continue reading Ear, Nose, & Throat Appointment

Looking Back. Looking Ahead.

In four weeks my "baby" will be 1 year old.  This last year seems like such a blur, for various reasons.  That thing called "life" happened, I blinked, and here I am. Now, 10 months ago time was crawling, my exhaustion had gotten the best of me, the 5-6 hours of screaming drove Michael and… Continue reading Looking Back. Looking Ahead.
