It was a simple quest.
Andrew and I were going to take a relatively quick 5 1/2 hour road trip to the Capital District so we could get India from college for the summer.
But someone had decided her van wouldn't make the 30° grade of the Driveway From Hell over the winter and parked it. Not in the barn on the hill, where it would be protected. Nooo. I parked her in the driveway and let her sit - under 3 feet of snow…

Sitting around with Matthew discussing prescription drug commercials and wondering about the various side-effects.
So many to choose from. How do the patients know which to select?
I mean, that's why they list them, right?
So you can go to your doctor and tell him which side-effect you would want. I think that is very thoughtful of the drug companies.…

Doug Lucas, author of The Flats Teacher's Test, is my guest today with a post about why he wrote a book that one reviewer called "an explosive story...crossing the boundaries...behind the doors of the educational system". To all my teacher friends and parents, this may be worth your time.
The Flats Teacher's Test is ONLY $4.99 for Kindle (or FREE for Prime users) and you can get it here - …

Lately I have been the victim of thoughtless, self-consumed, and, in some cases, stupid women. Well, not just me, my children have been as well, which really makes me irritated. The most frustrating part is that these people were so oblivious to what was going on around them, they never even realized that I, among other people, were getting extremely annoyed. Here are the situations:…Continue

Being a new mother is hard. It is a time that can leave you feeling confused, irritated, annoyed, frustrated, tired, and wonderful all at the same time. These feelings are often exacerbated by people giving you "helpful" advice that you most likely did not ask for. No matter where you are, whether it be at the grocery store, the doctor's office, or strolling your baby down the highway (although I might stop and give you advice here because you are obviously in need of some guidance…Continue

This school year is coming to an end and we are limping across the finish line (in some cases, literally). Only two of my kids are in school, I can only imagine what it is going to be like when all three of them are. Which, as my six-year-old pointed out, will only be one more school year because then the one-year-old will be in a morning program for three days a week and begin taking dance classes. Oh, and as a bonus, my eight-year-old threw in the statement, "and you will be older then…Continue

There has been a lot going on this week. I was going back and forth, trying to decide what to write about today and figured I would give you a recap of this week's headlines.
The first big story this week was a sad one. Dick…Continue

OK. Where to start. I have to admit, my mind is sort of spinning right now.
My friend Stephanie
dared challenged asked me to write about "reborns". She told me to research it, that I would enjoy it. Ah, she knows me so well.
So I did some research today.
It is a whole other kind of freak fest that I didn't really know existed.
Basically, women (I

School programs. If you have school-aged children, you have been to at least one of these. If your child has been in school for several years, you have been to a countless number of these. Still, parents seem to not understand the rules of a school program. Apparently all politeness goes out in the window with the parents' goal of seeing their child. Because they are the only child in the program. At least that is the impression that some parents give. There are rules, unspoken ones…Continue
