Web overload...

So I get the whole internet social networking thing. I mean I have a Facebook account, this blog, a youTube account, my Shutterfly site for pictures, I'm even part of a wiki! I've reconnected with friends and family whom I'd lost contact with over the years through several of these services. But where does it all end?

Today I discover I have family and friends who I haven't talked to in a while on MySpace, who are not on Facebook, and in order to view their profiles and catch up with them, I'd have to sign up for yet another account. Do I really need another account? Why can't we all just get together in ONE place? I'm starting to have sign-in, password overload issues! Not to mention, how do people find the time to play with all their different pages?

I've got to go designated blog time is over :)

Jenn -- You're so funny! I too have a TON of places that require different passwords!!! I try and keep them all the same, but I HATE the ones where you have to have a number!!! I have a Myspace and Facebook account, of the two I prefer Myspace, but I have reconnected with a ton of old classmates, and some childhood friends, so it's awesome!! So if you do set up a Myspace, look me up!

My Most Read Thoughts


Today while I sat in a classroom supervising students as they worked on their math assignments, I watched Lexi through the window enjoying time with her friends during recess. My heart smiled.

Those moments, moments of learning and carefree fun, those are the moments that SHOULD make up a school day. As a Mom, and an elementary school employee, my heart is breaking over the news and images coming out of Connecticut today. 
I send my kids off to school everyday without a second thought that they will return safely come day's end, just as I'm sure each one of those parents in Newtown did this morning.
Every day I walk into my school for work without a second thought to my personal safety, just as I'm sure each of those teachers, paras, custodians, sectretaries, etc in Newtown did this morning. 
Theories will be published. Evidence will be presented. Words will be exchanged about gun control and the need for change in our current culture of violence. I don't suspec…

DIY: Reusable Produce Bags

With Earth Day festivities gearing up for tomorrow, I thought I'd take a moment to post a short DIY tutorial on making your own reusable cloth produce bags. (Tutorial inspired by my favorite crafty mom blog, Crazy Mom Quilts. Produce bags inspired by running into my friend Laura at the grocery store while she was stuffing her produce into these.) This is my next step in the fight against the excessive use of plastic bags.

Our family has been making small environmentally minded changes in our daily lives over the past few years. We use reusable shopping bags. We've stopped buying/using Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. I'm trying to commute around town via bike more. I'm being more mindful about where the food we buy comes from and how it was produced. We more often hang our laundry on the line to dry in the spring and summer instead of just throwing it in the dryer. (Which is convenient at the moment since our dryer has decided to quit drying.) As we use up chemically clean…

Sunday Morning Silly...

Once in a while Dando's curiosity urges him to venture off the bookshelf so he check out other toys in the house.

I think he thinks Froggy is missing a few marbles.
