Pain, pain go away!

Shhhh! It’s Testing Week!

Yep… not gonna hear too much from me this week for a couple of reasons: First of all… it’s our last “official” week of school for the 2012-2013 school year. {We actually school year round, but our state likes things wrapped up by the end of June for official purposes.}…

Happy New Year to YOU, Too!

One week ago today, at about 2 am, I drove into our driveway and I thought to myself, “This is it! This is the  official start of our New Year!” We’d just spent 9 days in Virginia with extended family right after Christmas. It was wonderful (for the most part)…

This Week That Has Been Too Hard

I cannot write about the tragedy that took place in Connecticut. I know that a lot of bloggers are already writing about it… but what happened will take me far too long to ruminate over to be able to write anything of any relevant value here in a timely fashion.…
