The Fire Next Time…
have you ever really thought about WHY you blog? I suppose there are a lot of reasons, and I know a blog is supposed to have a purpose, but I have always answered, “just ‘cuz” – like a fifth-grader in all her golden glory, nonetheless… until now…
Reflections on lunch…
Better late than never! Time for bed!

Scattered thoughts… http://ourcampreadalot.blogspot.com/2012/03/scattered-slice-of-life-28.html
I am so forgetful.
I’m not sure how to describe this one. Maybe it’s about feeling safe in a world that also allows/contains stuff like the Trayvon Martin shooting.
Almost Wordless Wednesday
When life seems ready to drag me down, two words lift me again.

Much angst… much stress. My blog platform got changed on me while I was at work (Love my hubby). NONE of my other posts are here yet, but this is today’s link that should now work. My first “Batty About Books” post with Kathy (@thebrainlair) – we discuss the first part of Graceling.

28 days makes a habit!
Still not sure what was wrong with my link yesterday. Today’s post is the first in a new series for me… I’m “book buddies” with Kathy from @thebrainlair and we’re reading Graceling together. Come see what we thought! (We comment on and discuss the first 115 pages)
While you’re there, maybe you can stop in and read yesterday’s post which most of you weren’t able to get to because my blog is nuts. Sorry about that.

What’s Your Asking Price? The art of negotiating. http://windows2mylife.blogspot.com/2012/03/whats-your-asking-price.html
I have about 6 students who have willingly sliced each day this month, and a few more who’ve missed only 5-6 days!! They typically don’t link up until later in the day, but I wanted to be sure to get there post linked here.
They LOVE your comments!! Thank you so very much!
Makes me laugh that I’ve posted within less than 30 minutes on 2 different days! It only took me 28 days to make the switch, but I finally made it!!
Looking back on unpublished posts…
Still up stressing out so I may as well link my post. Half-way done with my digital resume.
