57. Hashbrowns

I am not the greatest cook. I can work the microwave like nobody’s business, but when it comes to cooking basics, I used to not be able to do much past heat up the stove. My husband, on the other hand, is a wonderful cook. He’s one of those that can take a pinch of […]

56. The future

I still remember a time when the Internet wasn’t around. When I had to look stuff up in the encyclopedia collection whenever curiosity aroused. The Internet is such a great tool. I can blow through ideas with key word searches and informative blogs and articles, and come to answers a lot quicker. I was thinking […]

55. Burnout

This past summer I pushed hard to learn how to build websites, start my blog, and polish up my horror story collection enough to sell. I ended up creating 5 different websites, wrapping up all of my short stories, and writing enough blog posts to have on hand for the next month. I burned out […]

54. Being calm

Have you ever been in the heat of the moment, and someone is yelling at you, and you get overrun with emotion and shut down and can’t think? Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could remain calm during that time, and strategize a way out of the argument? Being calm and not saying the first […]

53. When even cacti won’t grow

I kill cacti. I love keeping an aloe vera plant around for burns, and I have one that sits next to my living room windows. It’s not the biggest thing, but at least it’s still growing. It’s like my 5th one. One time I bought a really nice succulent aloe vera home from the local […]

52. It’s the little things

The happiest thing in the world is a dog’s tail. It just wags back and forth erratically without a care in the world, even if it knocks stuff over. While I am not a dog person (cats rule!), I am happy that my husband’s dogs are happy, and their tails wag a lot, even over […]

51. Ant infestation

The other day my husband and I took our farm truck into town to get some supplies, and as I open the passenger door to get in, I notice ants coming out of the vents. “I am not riding in this car and have ants crawl all over me!” My husband came over to my […]

50. The things we do to keep going

My home study/office is littered with artwork all over the walls. I look up from my computer and get inspired by art, quotes, and posters. I let my mind wander a little looking at all the abstract, a brief respite from work. Then it’s back to work. In my classroom I don’t have a lot […]

49. Keeping everything in line

Staying on top of things is important, and it keeps you from feeling overwhelmed later on. For example, this summer I hashed out my outline schedule for what the first few months of school would be. So when I went back, I knew what papers to pull, and what things to copy. That way, I […]

48. Blueberry pie advice

Over the summer I picked enough blueberries from our bushes to make blueberry pie. My husband is a great cook, while I am excellent at using a microwave. So my husband did all the mixing while I handed him everything and read off the recipe we were following. “Okay, sugar is added. What’s next?” my […]
