Now I Remember

Great day today!

Compared to yesterday, that is.

Everyone just got along. The kids were fun to talk to and not annoying in any way (like they usually are). No one had a meltdown or got angry. I was able to get a lot of work done. We made a great dinner and enjoyed some coconut margaritas.

Awesome! Right?

Turning Miserable into Grateful

Wow, what a miserable day.

Nothing, in particular, happened to make it any more miserable than any other day. I just have this constant feeling of, well, doom.

Gosh, that’s a harsh word, but I’m not sure I can come up with anything better to describe it. Sometimes the “doom feelings” creep in, and I can’t shake them. I’m basically on the verge of tears all day.

Tacos on Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday is somewhat a tradition in our house. We go through phases with it, but since my youngest eats pretty much anything in taco form (he’s picky otherwise), it’s pretty consistent.

This week I decided to go with Fish Tacos.

Mahi Mahi was our fish of choice. The Husband’s request, actually. He’s turning into quite the seafood guy in his old age. Anyway, I coated it in flour, cornmeal, dried dill, dried thyme, and dried garlic, then pan-fried it in some grapeseed oil.

Daily Brain Dumps

Do you know what I miss most about my old blogging days?

The daily brain dumps.

I find writing so therapeutic, but I don’t tend to do it unless I have the blog accountability. It’s kind of like playing the guitar. If I’m not actively taking lessons, I don’t tend to practice.

This is one of the things I hate about myself.

My Little Corner of Cyberspace

I can’t help it. I need a little corner on this thing we call the world wide web. Since returning to the classroom a few years ago, I’ve come to realize there are quite a few people who don’t know what a website is. Everything is app-based, and the idea of a “blog” seems to be diminishing. Time is marching on, as it does, and with every semester that passes, I find myself saying things like, “in my day…” and “when I was younger…” more and more.
