Building the Nest

Building the Nest

My husband and I have always wanted kids. Building the nest is the first step. We agree it’s better to create good habits now, while it’s just the two of us in the house, rather than waiting until we have a newborn. With all the chaos kids create, trying to create new habits on top …

The Disney Experience

The Disney Experience

Earlier this year, a friend of mine won a Disney cruise for her whole family (herself, her husband and their two young boys).

A Touch of Nostalgia

I try not to talk to much about my personal life in this blog. It’s boring, and I’m sure most people don’t care. I prefer to stick to more interesting topics, like books, writing and video games. But this blog is, at times, a record of significant moments in my life. Fair warning, this post …

Why Second Graders Should Rule the World

My husband teaches at a small English school in a fair sized French town. Small schools have their own unique problems, but they also present some unique teaching opportunities. One school serves the entire English community here, from Kindergarten to High School Graduation. So my husband can do interesting things like assign his high school …

A Moment of Awe

The phenomenon known as the transit of Venus occurs when Venus passes between Earth and the solar disk. The last transit of Venus occurred on June 6, 2012. Venus will not transit again until 2117. The event inspired reactions from my brother-in-law’s desire to watch Game of Thrones instead (because, and I quote “Venus is …

My Absence

My Absence

My apologies for the lack of updates! I never intended to let this site sit so long unattended. I had planned to at least keep the blog up to date with my latest exploits in both the writing and IT worlds, but sadly life has kept me rather busy. In June of this year, my …
