Welcome to the new and improved me! Thanks to Suzi for her inspiration! This is my big FAT statement on what you can expect to find on my blog. OK, since no one wants to read a 1,000 word post, here’s the short version.
Love my dearest teaching widower!
Love to worship Jesus!
Love to teach!
Love to play!
Love dogs and love to take photos!
Love to read, HATE racism, love technology, and love exclamation points!!! Did I say I HATE racism?
At first glance, you might run as fast as possible from this post. 50 STEPS? Are you CRAZY? You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that these are DOABLE. As Suzi points out, you don’t do all of them in one day. You’ll find many that resonate, so start there. Consider these as timesavers for the school year that looms ahead. Many of them are perfect for keeping your classroom well organized. Teach them to your students (I wish I had learned some of these when I was younger). I am going to make them my Bucket List for the next month and keep you posted on how I’m doing. Thanks, Suzi, and let the journey begin!!
This was a list of physical, psychological, financial and emotional things that I created a couple of months ago to make life that little bit easier… and it really works. Of course, it’s impossible to do all of these in a day, but I have broken it down into smaller chunks – I’ve found that […]

What a rough time it’s been for the past few weeks! I appreciate your patience with me and many thanks to Suzi Speaks for sending get-well wishers to my site!
How appropriate that I have read my way through many of the Bess Crawford books during this health lapse (the image above is from Pixabay, not the books). Bess is a British nurse during WWI, which has inspired my belated Ten Things of Thankful (hi Lizzi!). Here we go:
- I do not have shrapnel wounds or the Spanish flu.
- I do have antibiotics.
- My feet are not gangrenous.
- My widower has been a better nurse than Bess.
- My dearest widower has been feeding both me and the birdlings.
- My dearest, dearest widower has been tolerant as I play computer games and ask for cups of tea.
- My dearest, dearest, dearest, dearest widower still loves me enough to make a pit stop on the freeway every 15 minutes. Or perhaps I should say, OFF the freeway, in case you are worrying.
- My shell shock comes from shopping for school supplies, not a battlefield. Similar, but don’t ask.
- Unlike Bess, I am not surrounded by murder victims. Well….
- Unlike Bess, I do not have to iron everything I wear. On the other hand, she has unlimited wealth and status. Of course, I am a teacher, so I measure those things differently. Convenient, huh?
I got a great tip from Exceptional Delaware: Have posts scheduled for when you are dead or dying. No, he didn’t say it like that, but how macabre to read my posts only to discover that I’m in heaven! Actually, you would never know. My dearest widower could not access this blog, since I was locked out myself (GRRRR), and he is no tech hero. Can you tell I have spent too much time reading crime novels?
I shall return to things reasonable and educational ASAP.
