Mama Grizzly Bites The Principal


I got a little pissy at Ava’s principal this morning…Here is my rant. I will of course edit it before I send the actual one, but this is my rough draft.  Names “adjusted” to protect the innocent and keep me from getting sued.

It’s Time to Put On Makeup, It’s Time to Light the Lights

To Do List


I don’t like the term “Bucket List”, I’d hope that I can get some of this stuff before I have run out of time and while they may be things I want to do, they aren’t things I have to do before I kick the bucket. Read the rest of this entry »

And A Happy New Year
