Phone, Email or Text?

Posted by: | Comments (1)

I’m an emailer. Ask anyone who knows me or has worked with me and they’ll tell you. Yep, there’s Kelly– right there in my inbox! Again. I’ve been a fan of snail mail since  I was kid, but when AOL and email came along? Woo to the hoo. Type my mail. No envelope or stamp […]

My New View

Posted by: | Comments (5)

I got my first note home from school that was not all good. I need to work with Charlie on recognizing her numbers and letters. Here’s the part where I need to confess to a parenting failure as apparently, I really should have been doing that already, but didn’t know I should.  Too wrapped in my […]

I Got Nothin’

“Hey, It’s George….I got nothin’ to say.” ~George Costanza’s  (Seinfeld) message on Jerry’s answering machine Today, I’m feeling a little like that. I got nothin’. It’s about 9:00 pm and I was starting to get a little panicked about my blog as I hadn’t posted for the day yet, and worse, I had absolutely no […]

I was meeting a friend at Barnes & Nobel and wandering the aisles as I waited for her. She came up behind me as I started playing with the Nook running my fingers across its tempting screen. “No, you can’t have one,” she teased. “That’s ok,” I responded, “I don’t really want one.” As glossy […]

The Window

We had been looking at townhouses and houses to rent for about a month and half and were growing a bit discouraged. We had our list of “must haves” and our list of “really wants” and, of course, we wanted them all reasonably priced. We needed a two bedroom and were hoping for maybe an […]

NOT Waving the White Flag

I have been offered a job. Funny, I’ve been out of work for so long now, that when I imagined writing that last sentence, the sentence came with all sorts of happy emoticons and exclamation points. I mean, at the very least, it was written in all caps. But no. It’s just this: I’ve been […]

About Now

Posted by: | Comments (0)

My life as a teacher seems like such a lifetime ago. Even though it hardly seems possible, everyone is getting ready for “back to school” now. Or at least that’s what I hear. I went from being a student to being a teacher, so “back to school” has been part of my vernacular for most […]

Friends

Posted by: | Comments (1)

There’s the kind of friend you’re in contact with daily—text, email, or phone. And you feel like you’re missing a limb when you don’t get a daily dose. There’s the kind of friend that you never ever hear from. But for some strange reason it does not matter because the bond you created was forged […]

Torn

Posted by: | Comments (2)

I had a job interview today. It was for a temp job that could be an interesting opportunity. The job could be a fit for me, or I could hate it. It’s something I think I wouldn’t know until I got in there. And it may not even get that far. But if it did? […]

Missing BlogHer 2011

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Right about now I could be hanging out in sunny San Diego, California. That’s where this year’s BlogHer conference is. Remember how I went last year when it was in NYC? Remember how I pushed past my social anxiety and forced myself to go on my own and meet new people? And I was glad […]
