But without struggling…

Today on my list of things to write about it says I should share what people can most likely find you doing when you’re not at work. Motherhood doesn’t end and since I’m temporarily unemployed until the next school year, really I’m struggling right now to beat back the demons of wanting to sleep allContinue reading “But without struggling…”

Against The Grain

Spanking, or rather paddling, in schools recently made headlines when a Florida student was paddled by a principal and it was caught by an outside party to the incident.

What my daughter heard was you’re fat. Now. The circumstance was that we were about to pay the billContinue reading “Truth”

I struggle with it…

Cleaning is not my strong suit. I always talk about how I struggle with it, but today I felt really good about the work I accomplished in my living room. It looks habitable today, right? A rug is missing because we have a puppy who still seems to think peeing in the house is cute.Continue reading “I struggle with it…”
