A Farewell to Summer – At least in my mind

In honor of Labor Day, A farewell to summer

In honor of Labor Day and the traditional end of summer, this week I’m bidding a (not so fond) farewell to summer.  After a week of back to school, I figure I might as well.

Maybe next week I’ll talk about apples.  No worries, I won’t suddenly share a week of apple crafts and decor ideas and recipes.  I’m still not that kind of a blog.  (I may make fun of a few… how fun would that me?  Hmmm…  I AM feeling a tad bit snarky…)

It’s still hot.  It’s hot AND humid.  It shouldn’t be legal for it to be over 95 degrees AND humid.  Walking outside feels like I’m hanging out in a sauna.  For those who live on the Gulf Coast, we know we have at least another month of this weather.  Maybe more.

Summer lingers long after it has worn out it’s welcome. [Read more…]

Back To School Treasury, Miscellany, Compendium…

Fun round up of back to school posts that range from snarky to encouraging. Not a "how to" in the bunch.

Think of it as the back to school gallimaufry even.

Gallimaufry – (n) a confused jumble or medley of things

Why yes, in honor of back to school season I did use the thesaurus (or at least the website).  I certainly don’t walk around the house using the word gallimaufry.

Although to be honest, I think the word may be readily applied to several areas of the house including the play room and the laundry room.

But this… this is a round up of all the back to school fun I’ve written over the past two years. [Read more…]

Car line Revisited

car line rules revisited

A year ago, I wrote a rather fun piece titled the 10 commandments of car line.

I think it’s one of my favorite posts of all times.  It was initially drafted on the back of an envelope while I was sitting in car line.  Given that at the time I drove a black car and was sitting in 100+ degree heat for over an hour, it was great therapy.

I should confess that I discovered Candy Crush several days later and spent the rest of the school year happily advancing levels while waiting in car line.

I must not be alone.

On Monday, The Orlando Sentinel featured an article titled SCHOOL CAR LINES DRIVE MANY PARENTS CRAZY, IT SEEMS.

I was quoted in the article.  Squeee.  I haven’t read all the links… yet.  

I figured it was time to revisit the car line. [Read more…]

The post where I confess to being rebellious

on being rebellious

I’ve never told you this before, but I tend to be a bit rebellious.

Not in big ways.  Not now (although I did when I was younger.  cough.  statute of limitations. cough cough. changed.)

On the outside, I’m a rule following by the books kind of gal.  I have to be – I expect my kids to obey me.  But that doesn’t change me on the inside.

I am secretly rebellious.

When I see a sign that says [Read more…]
