Time Flies.

Tags: , ,

This is my first blog since May.Time Flies.

Where have I been?


Michigan.  Indiana.  Ohio.  Home.  School.

Asleep.  Jogging.  Bike riding.

Softball games. 


Mostly, Twitter.

Way back in April, some crazed anti-education blog person (probably Eastern European… because they are always the villain) infected this blog with a dreaded virus.

By the time I got everything fixed, I wasn’t in the mood to blog (notice I didn’t say write… since nothing on these pages qualifies as "writing").

Blogging is funny.

If you do it all the time, you want to do it all the time.

If you don’t, you don’t.

Sure, I could have replaced all the hours I used to blog and done something productive like charity work, but instead I wasted them on Twitter. 

It seemed so quick and easy.

Maybe it’s my ADHD.  Or maybe I don’t have ADHD.  I can’t remember, and I’m out of medication.

Plus, I think I just saw a squirrel run by the window.

Anyway, a lot has changed since I last posted.

The Evil Spawn is now a full-fledged teenager.  Buddy the Dog is staring down middle age.

Actually, he’s asleep, but if he ever awakens, I’m sure he will be staring down middle age.

Another school year and summer break has come and gone.

I’m older and everything takes longer.  And I can barely see, but that’s another blog for another time in a size 24 font.

Maybe I will get ambitious this fall and blog about my adventures.  Or maybe I won’t.

Time will tell.

On my Blog 2.0, I am no longer linking anything. Takes too long.  And I have a squirrel to chase and an old dog to pet.

    I can relate to having been “everywhere”. Went on our “dream” vacation to Alaska this summer. You have to work hard at keeping your life large and not allowing it to shrink as you age–because we are slower, need to rest more, and require more vitamins. My goal this year is to GET UP and exercise BEFORE going to school. For the first time in 20 years, I don’t have to do sub phone calls in the morning, so I am elated to have a small amount of time to myself BEFORE school! Water aerobics, strength training, the bike, elliptical, weights…hmm…all sound great! Fire up before school! Here’s to another great year– in 24 font!

    Glad you are back, unless you’re not, then I’m glad you didn’t die. I was a little worried, until I started paying a little attention to twitter…

    Welcome back Mr Kotter! Time flies like an arrow, fruit-flys like an apple.

    Glad you’re back. Of course since I follow you on Twitter where it has sometimes taken me hours to scroll past your tweets (and read some of them) I never really noticed you were gone. :-)

    You are just like my family. I could disappear for weeks on end and they would assume I was out walking the dog.

    I hope you are having a good beginning to the school year! I miss your humorous stories! This fall I’m teaching at the Furman University to 23 undergrads in a course called “Education of Students with Exceptionalities” but I still think of it as Intro to Special Ed. I’m trying to convince them all that Special Ed is a wonderful field to go into! I have 13 more weeks (out of a 16 week course) to do it! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

    I think Groucho Marx said it first: Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana, not an apple. Sorry! :)
