Fa la la la la la la la la....
Have you noticed a pattern? I disappear for a couple months, come back all smitten and jolly, ready to tackle blogging again with new inspiration. I make a couple comments about how I was feeling too much pressure, I need to just blog for me and not worry about popularity or readership. I'm good for a day or so and then I drop off the face of the planet. Phooey to that, I miss you guys!
Well I am alive and I am back but I'll spare you with the sob story of my absence. Well maybe I won't spare you all the tasty details but I will spare you from any false promises of blogging grandeur. I do have some things I'd like to share and hopefully I'll find the time to do it.
So you want to know where I've been? Remember way back when I said I wanted to go Montessori or Bust? I took the plunge and did it, and I'm now in the middle of a full blown graduate program in education, $28,000 in debt, and well on my way to changing the world one child at a time. I need one of those super girl t-shirts, but it has to be real cheap because I have about 50 cents to my name right now. It's been quite a ride so far but in all honesty I'm enjoying every minute of it. (Most minutes, who really does enjoy every single minute of anything? Except maybe chocolate, I enjoy every single minute of chocolate.) Going back to school at my age, 35 last month - gasp, has been a bit strange. I've not only been out of academia for nearly a decade but I've spent the last 5 slowly losing brain cells with my wonderful, but brain cell sucking two children. The people in my class are a trip, luckily I've managed to keep my blogging alter ego fairly incognito and only one girl knows this link! Hi Michelle! So, I'll try to pass on some of the more entertaining moments of my day.
So how is everyone doing with this new economy? Pretty much sucks doesn't it! We've cut back on so much and it still not enough. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise, I have been a bit wasteful in the past, time to get thrifty.
See my yucky shiny face..n ot it's not how I normally look but the winter winds (yes even here in southern California) have played a number on my pores. But who has money to spend on those outrageously expensive pore strips. I saw this recipe someplace on line and it works like a charm:
Mix 1 1/2 teaspoons of milk and 1 teaspoon of Knox gelatin in a small bowl. Heat in microwave for approximately 10 seconds. Mix thoroughly and using a small paint brush, brush mixture onto nose and any other areas that are a little clogged. I recommend avoiding the eye area, for reasons you will find out later. Let dry 10 to 15 minutes and peel off carefully. This is the point where you are thankful you didn't put it under your eyes! Take a look, you can even see the little porcupine things sticking out, that was in your pores! Double the recipe if necessary but I find this makes plenty! That was my thrifty tip for the day! I'll hopefully be back soon! Tootles!
