An Indiana school is giving third graders an inspiring early look at higher education with a series of field trips to local colleges — but the excursions are for black students only, which has angered some district parents.

Dear My-Daughter's-5th-Grade-Teacher
Dear My-Daughter's-5th-Grade-Teacher, I saw you today at the school where I teach. You were sitting with a group of 4th graders that had been brought to our high school to watch the production of The Little Mermaid that our choral students were putting on. ...

perfectly good dishwasher
So... on Sundays my mother-in-law makes lunch for the whole
family. It’s a wonderful time for all of us to get together and talk and joke
around. It’s usually fun for everyone. But not this past Sunday. SIL#1 and SIL#2 were standing in the kitchen hand-wash...

stay away from EconoLodge
Absolutely no cell phone service if you use Verizon. Was told by the front desk that their Wi-Fi wouldn't work with Verizon phones (I am not an idiot and cell phone company usage and WiFi have no correlation to each other). The night manager treated me as t...

AT&T DSL problems
I have been an AT&T customer since 2001. 14 years. And I am now completely fed up. Their DSL service is HORRIBLE. I currently looking for a new ISP. I KNOW that the company knows there is a problem with the service because one of their own servicemen told m...

friends
I have realized lately that because of the changes in my
life (my divorce, my marriage, the birth of my son, among others that I can’t
right now place) I have gone from being a very popular friend, to having very
few, if any, friends at all. Honestly, this ...

Fridays
It is finally Friday. I remember a few years ago when I longed for every Friday.
Even though somehow every Friday became the most stressful day at work. Something
always seemed to fall apart, or some task would fall on my shoulders out of
nowhere and be due...

Story
Introduction
i love being chubby... but sometimes i wish i wasn't quite so. i love my long hair, and i pledge to never get the old lady do. my family is made up of teachers: my father, my mother, my sister and i are all teachers. i have one daughter and one who are the center of my world, and they both know it. my wonderful husband is just that, wonderful. i could have not asked to be more blessed in my marriage, my family, or my life. i hate to vacuum and wash dishes by hand. my daddy (yes, i call him daddy) bought me a dishwasher for Christmas one year and i cried tears of joy. i graduated from auburn, WAR EAGLE! as did both of my parents.

i hate slow drivers, even though if it is raining, i become one of them. i am petrified of hydroplaning off of the road in my camry. my best friend is my husband. i have two best girl friends. i am a daddy's little girl, and i LOVE being a daddy's little girl. my father is my hero, and i cannot begin to fathom life without him. i love pasta salad with cucumbers. my favorite restaurant is Outback Steakhouse. in a perfect world, i would professional blogger and photographer. i have won the only photography contest i have ever entered. i am scared of wrecking my record on that one... my calendar is color-coordinated. i love to draw and doodle. i am obsessed with my blog and taking pictures. i am a teacher. i hope that i am a good teacher. i want to go to graduate school and get my MBA, but i doubt i ever will.

i want to lose weight, but i don't want to be thin. i hate to sweat. i despise humid weather. i like the way the rain smells. i am very much a girlie girl, but i will go four-wheeler riding with the best of them. i am cool with bugs, as long as they are not on me. i do not drink alcohol. i love singing at the top of my lungs in the car while i am driving. caffeine is a miracle drug and excedrin migraine KICKS BOOTY. my toes are my most beautiful physical feature, but my personality is my favorite feature.

sometimes i talk too fast. sometimes i talk too much. i have a southern accent. my favorite color is green and has been since i was two years old. i have been in love twice in my life. i compare every man i meet to my daddy. i HATE to exercise. i love to put on makeup and do my hair every morning. i think nap-time should be for everyone of every age, not just toddlers at daycare. i am a very picky eater, but i will usually try anything once. i loathe coconut, not the taste or smell, but the texture of it. i HATE tea of any kind, sweet, unsweet, green, herbal, *blech*.

i am addicted to yellow-box flipflops. i love capri pants, gauchos and khaki shorts. i love shimmer body lotion and i wear it every day in the summer. i have was a band geek in high school (clarinet and bass clarinet). i still don't "get" sports. i have a barbie-doll looking sister (except she has brown curly hair) who is probably one of the best people that God put on this earth. i only have two grandparents left, and i miss the other two every day. i hope that they knew (and still know) how much i love them and appreciate everything they did for me.

makeup is a necessity and if it is made by loreal, i own it, and probably wear it daily. i modeled the whole entry after my sister's about me on her facebook profile. i believe that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Absolutely no cell phone service if you use Verizon. Was told by the front desk that their WiFi wouldn't work with Verizon phones (I am not an idiot and cell phone company usage and WiFi have no correlation to each other). The night manager treated me as though I was an imbecile. Her smug smile when I reported a problem caused my blood pressure to skyrocket. I was paying $100 for a CRAPPY, LOUD, SMELLY room and she was RUDE. There was a scary shady looking drug dealer looking dude hanging out on the corner at the back of the building. Rooms smell like old cigarettes. Horribly uncomfortable beds. Ironing board but no iron. Road noise is TERRIBLE. The rooms on the back are probably quieter, but then you may need to make friends with the shady drug dealer. Air conditioner did not work. Will NEVER stay here again. Actually, we will NEVER stay at another EconoLodge because of this experience.
