Today Kinda Sucks. But There’s Always YouTube…

Today is Wednesday or Hump Day. I’ve spent the last two hours down the rabbit hole that is YouTube and Facebook. You look at one video and you spiral out of control and you realize you haven’t started dinner yet and you haven’t even eaten lunch. Sometimes I go to YouTube and FB for inspiration… Continue reading Today Kinda Sucks. But There’s Always YouTube…

Best Ideas for End of Year Teacher Gifts. May or May Not be Appropriate.

Living in North Carolina is wonderful but you can actually have all four seasons in one day here. But that’s not my issue today.

College Spring Break Ain’t For The Weak Hearted.

As I am writing this my fingers are still numb from an earlier lacrosse game where it was below 40 degrees and I froze my A@@ off. But I love my kids! I’m on my second cup of coffee and scalded my tongue so now you know how my day is going. AND it’s the… Continue reading College Spring Break Ain’t For The Weak Hearted.
