I saw this shirt advertised as a designated Christmas gift for math teachers. I’m sorry, but this is bad math. If I were a math teacher and received this shirt, I would be horrified.

I Hate Homework
Little Boy is in eighth grade right now. I saw that he had recently googled “Why does homework exist?” Although I understand these (honestly kind of preachy) answers given on Google, and of course I told my son that homework is good for him…. and he should DEFINITELY do his homework….

The other day I was getting some ketchup from my condiment drawer– What? You don’t have a condiment drawer? What do you do with your ketchup packets then? Anyways…. I noticed that all my ketchup packets had little holes, like something had been CHEWING on them. Could there be mice in the house? Oh surelyContinue reading “Ketchup Mouse”
3/1/20 vs 3/1/21
Last year at this time I would have laughed at the idea of wearing a mask to go out. The idea of “protective face masks” would have conjured up crazy images. This year…. I have a DESIGNATED MASK RACK in my laundry room. I guess this is progress…
