Navigating my life with 2 kids, 2 dogs, & 1 husband. Tired of waiting for (good) karma payback; time to do it myself.

There is a #KateSpade #wicker #purse in the shape of a #monkey. I repeat - wicker purse, shaped like a monkey. It looks like a toy for a child. Price tag? $398. To say I am baffled is an understatement. To have the kind of $ to buy a $400 wicker monkey... wow. Or, why?!
15 has an assignment (project) for trig. She was upset with me that I wasn't "even trying" to help. Sadly, I have NO idea what she is doing. Wish I understood, wish I could help. Very grateful she is competent in math & will figure this out. #Trigometry #math
I’m trying to recognize reality & grapple with the notion that the shut down isn’t sustainable for anyone but the most privileged & that it’s going to end—that’s the choice that’s been made. But the new lines that have been drawn guarantee the culture wars will only intensify.
Gen-Xers have been training for quarantine our entire lives. No other generation is perfectly happy staying in their room, alone, listening to sad music & watching John Hughes’ complete oeuvre on repeat like us. #coronapocolypse #StopTheSpread #GenX #StayTheFHome #COVIDー19
Listening to 15 study #math. Honestly wonder why we still teach certain things to every student. #realworldmath would be be more beneficial. We have removed practical schooling and replaced it with college bound programming. Thing is, not every student will go to college. #VocEd
