A Day Late and A Dollar Short

I did it; I missed my self imposed deadline yesterday.  I completely forgot to write my Monday post.  It didn’t even pop into my head.  I did think about it on Sunday, but I had kids and doggies in town so I quickly put it out of my mind. Over the weekend, the tickle in […]

Back to Work

I worked at the preschool today and before I left they asked if I could work again tomorrow.  They might even need me on Thursday.  I sure wish I made as much money at the preschool as I do subbing for the district; it’s so much easier, the hours are better and I can wear […]

Oops, it’s Monday!

It’s late Monday night and I am just now getting around to my employment post. I’ve been kinda busy, what with Middle son getting married and all. Saturday started at 6:30 a.m. and was fairly hectic until it ended around 1:00 a.m. Sunday. Sunday morning started at 6:30 a.m. too, was even more hectic and […]
