Dear Michel on Gilmore Girls, you’re pretty much my sarcasm hero. Dear fellow homeschooling moms (or teachers of any sort), please help a girl out and tell me what you found useful for….reluctant (which is an extremely nice way of putting it) spellers. I’m using Spelling Workout right now, but it just doesn’t seem to be working for one of my girls. HELLLLP!! Dear Texas, please, please give it a rest with the 90 degree October days. We’re all sobbing into our pumpkin spice lattes down here (not that I drink them, but whatevs). Dear self, you know how you promised yourself that you’d really and truly make a dent in your fabric and paper stash before buying new supplies? YOU CAN’T GO TO JOANNS and keep your promise. You know this about yourself, so Just. Don’t. Do. It.
