Your body will argue that there is no justifiable reason to continue. Your only recourse is to call on your spirit, which fortunately functions independently of logic.

I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?

I never knew how my family mourned.

It is apparently by blaring Bob Marley, drinking moonshine out of mason jars, and grilling enough food to feed a small country.

My dad is one of eleven siblings, and they have all been making their way over. We are very lucky to have so many people help take care of my dad during this time.

Processing.

Some might not find this the appropriate place to figure out my thoughts regarding recent events, but I feel the opposite. 

This is very personal. You will probably judge, and think less of me when I am done. I am not a perfect person. I am, however, honest.

So it goes.

My stepmother passed away last night. She had been fighting an inoperable brain tumor for years and passed away in her sleep. She suffered from seizures, and stress being a huge factor we think due to the recent loss of her uncle whom she was very close to and yesterday’s events with our dog Sparky, the stress might have been too much.

I was not close to her in the least due to many, many reasons. But, I’m close to my dad, more than anyone. I am heading home to Maryland to be with him.

Keep us in your thoughts.

Today is a sad day. My family said goodbye to our favorite little old man, Sparky. 

He suffered a stroke last night and became paralyzed from the neck down. He did not feel any pain and got to spend one last peaceful night in the arms of my Dad and stepmom. 

Dogs aren’t our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

See the teacher is his natural habitat. Look how he has made himself comfortable spending money on not his offspring. Amazing creatures, teachers are.

Nothing says love like tacos.

Making dinner for the newest guy in my life for the first time since I cooked him hamburger helper our junior year of college.

Hopefully this is a step up.

What would you do if your principal

Banned the following things:

- casual fridays
- open toed shoes (believe me I get these above are small issues)
- word searches and puzzles for students
- scissors in the classroom
- crayons in the classroom

And what if that same principal
- took away your entire budget
- except the art teacher, who got $100 for the entire year for 800 students
- told the secretary she had to stand at her desk all day, even when doing paperwork or typing
- had to approve every copy you were making, which is limited to only 200 sheets of paper for the month

This is a true story. My mom retired a few years back from teaching, and the school she taught at for 20+ years (and where I went to elementary school) just got a new principal.

My mother is in very close contact with the teachers there. One teacher said “going to school feels like a funeral. No one is smiling, there is no laughter. Teachers are crying in the bathroom.”

I am broken hearted for that school.
