What I really mean is...
I made it

I made it through yet another Reading/ELA EOG/EOC/NC Final Exam day. There were minimal tears and less of a breakdown than normal, so that is a plus. My kids said it was easy and they felt prepared. That helped too.

Now, just to survive the next couple days of school… 

Dear Struggling Suzy,

I have a big decision that has been brought before me, and I honestly don’t know what to do. This is one that would change my career, and I can’t say that I am not ready for a change. I just don’t know if I can do it, though… I am not one to have regrets, but I definitely don’t want to start now. The next couple of weeks are going to be bumpy…

I’ve got the blues

I’ve got the  it-is-close-to-the-end-of-school-and-everyone-is-tired-and-burnt-out blues.

If this year does not end quickly, I’m pretty sure I won’t make it.

Testing starts next week.

Excuse me while I run away screaming…







That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable.

I did it…

I submitted my application to grad school. I know this may not seem like a giant, big deal, but it totally is to me. I have been waiting three years, THREE YEARS, to do this, because of what I want to do. I will (hopefully) be going back to school to get my masters in administration. This has been my goal since before college. This is just one step closer to getting a Ph.D and running a college, the ultimate dream. Fingers crossed and prayers sent up, please and thank you!

My father broke my heart long before any boy had the chance to.

Birthday shout out to my BFF, Samantha! I hope your 25th is filled with lots of fun. Cannot wait to celebrate with you! =) LOVE YOU


"Sometimes I think I’m a total failure as a parent, but I’m all they’ve got. Before Jem looks at anyone else he looks at me, and I’ve tried to live so I can look squarely back at him… if I connived at something like this, frankly I couldn’t meet his eye, and the day I can’t do that I’ll know I’ve lost him. I don’t want to lose him and Scout, because they’re all I’ve got."
