My Most Humble Apologies

I have not been a very good bloghopper. My laptop is having connectivity issues so I’m relegated to the basement desktop. It does not have my favorites so my whole bloghopping system is nonfunctional. Not only that, my head is still stuffed with cotton and my thinking skills are a little iffy on good days.…

The Latest Installment of the Reconstruction Chronicles

My drive into Philadelphia today served as evidence that I’m still a long way away from my New Year’s Resolution.

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…

Just Call Me Goldilocks

I don’t get migraines very often, but when I do they’re awful. I’m lucky they don’t last for days, but they are very intense when I get them. They’re bad enough that I can’t think straight, I can’t talk and I sometimes even become a little irrational. The last time I had a migraine was…
