I’m often on the prowl for something yummy to eat. I like to nibble. And gnaw. And gum. And chew on tasty morsels. Not all the time. But when I get a craving for something, I need it nwo. I usually eat savory and salty snacks, but not always. Lately I have had a...

Don’t You Eat Breakfast with Super Heroes?

My childhood was nomadic. No, really. I am not exaggerating when I say that I moved around a lot. I lived in England, America, and Italy. A few years in each country. We were continually moving back and forth across the Atlantic. I became, and still am, VERY adaptable. Moving from place to place...

Pie-jacking, Homework, Carpools, Oh My

Update on PieGate: The pie I dropped off on Friday that went missing? Was delivered to her teacher by another student. Faith restored that her pie was not in fact jacked on Pi Day. Funny of the day? A school administrator told me that ONE HUNDRED PIES were dropped off at the school office...

My husband is a former-English-teacher-now-school-administrator. He’s always had the same snow days as the kids. Occasionally, his county will declare a snow day...
