Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Unplugged for Day of Silence


My most recent post about Day of Silence is here.

I'll be Unplugged Friday for a Day of Silence.

Being a SAHM and not involved in the school system anymore, not even as a student, I don't know what else I can do. Hopefully one of you will be in a position to do something.

Here's another article with video (and NSFW pictures) here.

No child should have his pants pulled down to "prove" he's a boy. He's SIX! What are we teaching our kids?

Melissa Firman talks about "When the bully is the teacher" here. Think about it. How do you protect your child when the teacher is the problem?

A girl was suspended when she recorded a teacher bullying another student with her cell phone "because she didn't ask the teachers permission to record her voice first". WHAT? Check it out here

A happy ending story can be found here. Sometimes I wish we all had a football team.



For #AtoZChallenge visitors: Saturday will have three posts N, O, and P. I'll make return visits next week, I'll be completely offline.
