Oh, the Irony

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you probably know I complain a lot about the weight I gained from breast cancer treatment. First from the chemotherapy and then from Zoladex injections. And since my hysterectomy – which was indirectly related to the breast cancer – I’m finding it harder and…

Reason #7,384 Why I'll Never Be Mother of the Year

I just got back from the 7th grade nurse where I had to drop off paperwork and an Epipen for Katie “just in case”. When Katie was a very young toddler we discovered the hard way she had a peanut allergy. Thankfully she didn’t actually eat the PB&J I had made for her, only played…

William Tell Momsense

I saw a clip of this on Good Morning America a few minutes ago and it brought me so much pleasure and joy I started tearing up. The woman receives a standing ovation at the end and it is so well deserved!

Fried Green Tomatoes and Stuff

Katie and I watched Fried Green Tomatoes last night. It’s times like that when I love having a daughter. Oh, I suppose there are other times I love having a daughter, too. But chillin’ together with a chick flick is just fun. It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen this movie, but watching it…

Forget the Booze, I'll Take the Nyquil

One of the “hazards” of working with kids when you’re not used to it is picking up every little germ and virus the little angels bring to school with them. Add to that an uncertain immune system and you can be assured of taking home your very own little illness. Yesterday at school I thought…

I Work Hard For The Money

Today I completed my second four-day week of working as a teacher’s assistant to a class full of two-year-olds. I think I’m starting to acclimate as I don’t have to down two ibuprofen, soak my body in the jacuzzi tub and take a nap after lunch. The director is actively looking for another assistant for…

Love Fest

Back in July I was honored with the Schmooze Award by Em at Notes From My Corner. The funny thing was that I awarded him with the Blogger Reflection Award the very same day. As I told him, we had our own little mutual admiration society going. The word “schmoozer” brings to mind a greazy…

middle name meme

Jodie Lee at Throw the Book at Me tagged me for the Middle Name Meme back in August. I’m finally getting around to posting it. Here are the rules: 1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts. 2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life…
