Every dog deserves their story. So here's Duke's: He came to live with us September of 2004. He got his name from me. My very first dog as a kid was named Duchess. But this was a boy dog, so Duke it was. We got him on Friday and by Monday afternoon, he was our … Continue reading Duke
Not the ones I own. Not the ones I want to buy. Nope. The shoes that other people wear. Namely the kids I teach. We get caught up in the game of school. The learning of academic subjects and all the "what education is supposed to be" sort of stuff. But today was different. Today … Continue reading Shoes
2017…that’s a wrap!
UPDATE: I'm such a slacker I didn't even finish the post and share it. So here it is better late than never 😂 ORIGINAL POST: I've been a writing slacker. Turning 40 was kind of a relief. I mean it was amazing completing 40 new adventures before 40, but it was exhausting. So here this … Continue reading 2017…that’s a wrap!

I did not adventure this week…
But I was supposed to. I was supposed to do a hot cocoa run, but I wimped out. It was cold and early and I was really lame. I need my running mojo back. How do you all stay motivated to run in the winter? On another note this weekend...we took our family photo for the annual … Continue reading I did not adventure this week…
#10 Running a 10k
So back when I was contemplating all this 40 before 40 craziness, my good friend Bethany said "Alright, your 10th adventure is definitely going to be a 10k". At first, I was like "umm, yeah right". But then, since I'm not one to back down from a challenge, I began my journey to become a "runner" … Continue reading #10 Running a 10k
So my son created a Snapchat account for me...something about streaks. My daughter rolled her eyes and said to her brother, "why did you do that?" She refused to add me. Apparently Snapchat is not for old people. I must disagree! It's so fun. And addicting. I've laughed so hard with a few friends over … Continue reading Snapchat…I’ve converted
Be Fit and Eat Healthy
I'm writing this to hold myself accountable. I like carbs. Not the good healthy ones. The bad processed ones. Like, I could eat cookies and cheez-its for every meal. Last week, I stress ate about 20 packages of swedish fish (the little halloween sized ones, but still). It's hard to eat well in the summer because … Continue reading Be Fit and Eat Healthy
Well, I'm down to a week and I have my first adventure planned...stay tuned. But today, I'm just going to ramble off another story. It's summer and as a teacher, I'm off for the summer. Well, mostly. Except this summer and last summer and pretty much all of them. So far since school has been out, I've been … Continue reading Summer Running
This might become an obsession
I talked about my bucket list yesterday. Basically, I love trying new things and I'm currently obsessively researching "how to blog". I should probably be researching "how to teach STEM" or "how to parent teenagers". But, I'm not. In the education world people throw around a lot of terms. Like being a lifelong learner. I think … Continue reading This might become an obsession
