    Don't put up with negative energy in your space. Evict it.

    Union Blood...


    My father was a Teamster and I am a member of the Chicago Teachers Union Local 1.
    Union blood runs in the family and I'm proud of it.

    Routine...


    Change is good.  Embrace it.
    Do one positive thing for yourself every single day.
    Change your routine; routines can be lethal.

    Sad, But True...


    I think a lot of physical ailments can be cured in the kitchen.
    Just my opinion.

    And So It Starts Again...


    Meetings all week long and only 2.5 hours total to set up my classroom.
    I'm dragging my heels all the way.

    Not Ready...


    I go back to work tomorrow. I'm not mentally ready. 
    Can you tell?

    Gardening 101...


    I know that some schools have programs like this, but I think
    it should be nationwide.  Just my two cents.

    Going Beyond...


    It's okay to reach a plateau every once in a while, but
    do not ever allow yourself to stay there.
    Nothing good will come of it.

    Life is Too Short...


    Do what you want; don't just wish you could. You only get one life,
    so live it the way you want. Dream big and go after it!

    ILL...


    Wow. Knowing this makes me sick to my stomach.
    I am so glad none of my kids ever ask for that crap, nor do they complain about not getting it. 
    I guess they do listen to me, after all.

    100 Days of Real Food...


    This book is unbelievably informative! 
    It's got a user-friendly layout and the recipes are not
    complicated at all.  My favorite section is "Getting Your Family
    on Board."  Coming in at a close second are the Meal Plans.
     
    It's really not difficult to complete 100 days of real food, as long
    as everyone in your home also buys into it.  This book does a great job of
    detailing how to get picky eaters and reluctant spouses involved, and also
    lists age-appropriate kitchen chores for kids.
     
    There is also a section that lists recipes by dietary need, which is
    really helpful for people who are gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegetarian.
    I would have liked to have seen heart-healthy, low-salt, and diabetic-friendly
    lists in that section, but you can't have it all sometimes.
     
    All in all, this is a great book full of ideas, tips, and recipes that
    families should have in their arsenal of cookbooks that are actually useful.

    Get Up...


    If you want a change, get off your butt and do it yourself.
    No one can do it for you.
