Feeling Ill

I have been so ill lately. It’s an illness I can’t quite pinpoint. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday were all days I ended up throwing up before work. I was perfectly fine on Tuesday even though I had a very high agenda schedule to do that day. Something at work, this job, that job, any job […]

Weekly Recap | Week 09

Although the week is not through, I thought I’d come and write my weekly recap anyway. I promise to not only talk about work. The week started off right. I was starting my own shift this week. I was worried how having to stay until 4 pm would affect me compared to getting out at […]

Too-Soon Weekly Recap

I’m writing this a day early. I got antsy. I really don’t even have a lot to write about but I wanted to write this while everything was fresh in my mind. This week was pretty good. It was my first week on the floor by myself. I was cleared to be by myself on […]

Weekly Recap | Week 6

So, I’ve been doing these Project Life scrapbook pages with the Android app. Every week, per the rules of the Project 52 challenge, I have been scrapbooking one page for every week. I normally do this on Saturday morning when we are at basketball. Yes, that means we don’t include Saturday night in our weekly […]

2016 – A year in review.

2016 was pretty crazy. Normally on the last few days of the year, I write about my resolutions proposed accomplishments that I achieved throughout the year but I decided to add little something to my annual post. I want to look back and write some of the things that happened this year. I am going […]

Ups and Downs

It has been two weeks since I wrote an actual entry. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs since then. Lack of sleep or lack of sanity may have played a factor in both. School Stuff So the boys have officially been in school two full weeks. Actually, they’ve had a total of six (five, […]

Twas The Night Before…

Twas the night before school started, when all through the town, the parents were cheering… It was a riotous sound! By 9, kids were washed and tucked into bed… Where memories of homework filled them with dread! New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too! New teachers, new friends…Their anxiety grew! The parents just giggled when […]

Quickly Posting

I decided to write a quick blog here today. It is REALLY hard to keep up with three (3) THREE blogs at a time. It was definitely a moment of when mania attacks that possessed me to have three blogs at a time. I guess it kinda works out, though. I talk about my friends and […]

Moments Peace

I have a few moments peace right now. The boys are in summer school. I am doing laundry and cleaned up the kitchen this morning. Yesterday was interesting. Mikhail woke up with the moans and groans, and of course, the growls. He didn’t want to go to summer school. Lovely. He was super excited about […]

School Year Complete.

Well, another year has passed. It will officially be summer break as of 11:20 am tomorrow. I will have a 7th grader and 2nd grader. Can you believe it!? I surely can’t. It’s surreal that we’ve lived in this house for one year now. It’s unbelievable that entire school year has passed. Wow!  They did […]

Not Titled.

I don’t have a fancy title for this blog post. It’s simple really, I’m bored out of my mind and have nothing better to do but write on here. So, here I am. There’s some things I haven’t talked about lately or forgot about so I thought I’d address them. Job Interview with Aflac I […]

Conferences were this week. Mikhail’s teacher requested that we don’t have a conference for this semester. I requested from her that she, at least, updates me with a progress report on how things are going via e-mail or the phone. I’m giving her until after spring break to contact me. Overall, Mikhail is doing really […]

This will be a hodge podge of an entry. Nothing in particular to talk about but a lot going on, I guess. Mikhail is sick again. He’s been sick for the past few days now. He stayed home from school yesterday and almost today too but I wouldn’t allow for it. I figure if he’s bad […]

School nonsense.

Today was just fun-filled with nonsense. First, I checked the school’s app and got notified that Nick was marked absent for a class called “Reading Intervention” which I didn’t even knew he had! So, I checked his schedule and sure enough his language arts and reading classes were switched around and instead of taking “Read-180” […]

Week Long Update

It has been over a week since I’ve updated last. My apologies. I’d say things have been busy but they have and have not. Here’s what has happened. Nick’s “Illness” As I previously wrote, Nick was having chest pain. We took him to the ER and got them checked out and the doctor at the […]

Brain Dump

This will be a random post. I have a lot of randomness to talk about from my previous weekend. Not one thing in particular I want to talk about but rather multiple little things. This will be one of my many brain dump posts. This will be all over the place. Be prepared for a […]

It’s hard to say that one of your students is struggling while the other is performing well above average. That’s the conflict I am feeling. We had Mikhail’s conferences last night. After waiting about 45 minutes his teacher was finally ready to see us. We walked in, sat down, and she looked us and suddenly […]

Extended Conferences

I was going to write this yesterday, but I never got around to it. I had a trying day yesterday. First thing in the morning, Mike and I awoke; he went in the bathroom and I took off the bedding. I was carrying the laundry basket down the stairs when I got to the bottom […]

Fun Times

We had some pretty eventful past two days. The boys came home from school yesterday and I fed them something to hold them over. We had movie night at Mikhail’s school. We were seeing Inside Out. It would be our second time seeing it and being that it was one of my favorite Pixar movies, […]
