Headstart, Roofie, Mother’s Day, Full Moon

The Policy Committee was predictably depressing. I am so ashamed of my peers. Fellow moms who didn't seem to give a rats ass about anything except making motions to accept everything that was presented to them. Maybe they get a thrill about having some power. Maybe they like the free food. Maybe they just like sucking … Continue reading Headstart, Roofie, Mother’s Day, Full Moon

Good men are in my neighborhood

Every morning I drive the same route to work, which crosses through one of my favorite neighborhoods in Durango. The houses are old and the sidewalks are cracked by roots of trees who have been around since this town was founded. Faded Tibetan prayer flags hang from porches, marking the student rentals. Sunflowers poke their … Continue reading Good men are in my neighborhood

More from Head Start

I sent another email this morning to the big wigs at Head Start. Once again there was no one in my daughter's classroom at 7:30. Once again I had to wait, and once again I was late to work. I emailed the Head Start director, describing how since the dismissal of Spot, there hasn't been a teacher … Continue reading More from Head Start

I was the definition of skeptical. Either his parents have actually talked some sense into him, or he's still trying to … Continue reading Buttering up

The Knocked Up Effect

So now I will be writing ANOTHER blog, on top of this one and this one. I also submitted my formal complaint to Head Start this … Continue reading The Knocked Up Effect

Tree Boy

Email from my mother: Ok, you have to meet the guy who removed the tree stumps from my backyard. He owns his own business, is really cute, very polite, and he volunteers at the Humane Society in his free time! I couldn't bring myself to ask if he's got a girlfriend. He's going to do … Continue reading Tree Boy

His Puppet Master

We didn't go to court today. Since the recusal was granted, all further contact with our previous judge was canceled. Now we have to wait for February. We got hit with another helluva blizzard today and my phone was ringing off the hook with parents wondering if we were gonna let school out early. We … Continue reading His Puppet Master
