Cheers to Teachers

Cheers to Teachers

Do you remember all of your teachers? What about their names? Until I started thinking about it today, I thought I did. I can recall specific things about almost all of my teachers through 8th grade. Once I get to high school, it gets a little jumbled. Mrs. Gentry, my kindergarten teacher was sweet and […]

“The longest sentence you can form with two words is ‘I do.” — H. L. Mencken Funny, right? People love to joke about how miserable marriage is. For some, that’s true. There are plenty of couples living in unhappy marriages. It’s fun to joke about. Women are total pains, constantly nagging and complaining. Men are […]

1. If anyone was looking for an update, the carpool cheaters are still there. In fact, they’ve grown in numbers. They park off to the side, rather than sitting in line like the rest of us. I’d like to congratulate them. Their time is more important than everyone else’s and that deserves some recognition. I […]

She Was a Damn Good Dog

She Was a Damn Good Dog

For the second time since we got married, we had to say goodbye to a dog. Making the decision for vet-assisted pet death is sometimes easier than others, but it’s no walk in the park. It’s usually the right and best option, but it can’t help but seem a little wrong. I don’t tell you […]

Opting Out

Opting Out

We’ve been talking of golf and weddings. It’s a beautiful time of year — mostly. If you have a child in public school, or if you are an educator, or if you live anywhere but under a rock, you’ve heard the whining. Everyone’s stressed and filled with dread. There’s fear of the unknown and, worse, […]

Wedding Season Is Here!

Wedding Season Is Here!

It’s that time of year again. Flowers bloom, drinks flow freely and happiness abounds. I’m not talking about the golf tournament… yet. It’s wedding season! When our friends were finishing college, there was a wedding nearly every weekend. Though I cried during each ceremony, I’ll admit to growing tired of making travel plans, buying gifts […]

That Will Cost You

That Will Cost You

Growing up, I knew a girl who got $20 a week for her allowance. She also got $10 per A on her report card. That was a lot of money back then. I’d get a $20 bill for an entire Friday night babysitting three kids. Heck, I can still stretch $20 pretty far. We don’t […]

Parents Can Now Breathe Easy

Parents Can Now Breathe Easy

The wait is finally over. If your kid is going to a magnet school in Augusta, Georgia, for the 2015-2016 school year, you know it by now. The letters went out much sooner than anyone imagined. We were told we’d know “before spring break,” but nothing else. Once I heard a letter might be in […]
