You say you want a revolution…

Pleasantville Schools are full of pretty awesome traditions… the Kindergarten Circus; grade-level plays that culminate in high school musical extravaganzas; Walk in My Shoes day, were kids experience what it is like to have learning and physical differences; parades featuring Halloween, favorite book characters, and graduating seniors; prom dress viewing in the front circle; concerts;Continue reading “You say you want a revolution…”

The Plan

Last week I had my day planned. My little guy and I would have our morning together, I would drop him at school via car, then scoot out of Pleasantville the back way to avoid morning small town traffic, then off to Queens…the land of my youth. I was meeting up with my Noel, atContinue reading “The Plan”

How sweet toContinue reading “Family Fun Myers-Briggs Style”

On those daysContinue reading “Reflections”

We can choose to look on the bright side or we can focus on the gloom. It really comes down to that. Many moons ago,Continue reading “Choice… (nothing to do with uteri)”

Happy Birthday Dear Swoons!

Swooning.me is two years old today, and just like with my kids, it feels like it has always been a part of my life. It kinda was. I have always felt my feels in XXXL. The need to want to share those feels combined with our friend FB…lead to swoonie posts, which lead to peopleContinue reading “Happy Birthday Dear Swoons!”
