This post is coming out a little later than I originally planned. Sorry. I have a reason for that. As some of you may or may not know, I am married to a teacher. It has its hardships; long hours, work at home, and let’s not skirt the issue, low pay. However, the benefits, such as summer vacation and snow/cold days make it so much fun.

For example, one of my friends got mad at me for not driving her to a party because I wanted to read Harry Potter. [Read more…]
