  • I have a 2 hour break between hs and ms and I don’t hate it. I read her book on girls & sex this spring.

I'm glad you're teaching this stuff. It's so important!!!

My mom was a public health nurse who worked at the sexual health clinic and also came to schools to do sex ed, as many gym/health teachers didn't feel comfortable doing it. She was known around town as "the condom lady" and more than a couple friends freaked out the first time they came to our house and realized that they knew my mom from a totally different context (like STD testing, abortion counselling, birth control clinic) and were suddenly really uncomfortable. She was pretty awesome about it though, and never let on that she knew anyone or anything.

And despite growing up in this incredibly open environment where all the facts could be discussed, it was still awkward to talk to my mom about the emotional/interpersonal side of things. Probably just because she was *my* mom. Families are weird like that.

I wish we could pass out condoms!! And I love teaching sex ed! I don’t have kids, but I can’t imagine having that conversation w my mom. Eek!

My irrational fears have lessened a lot as I’ve gotten older. I simply don’t give a shit anymore. That being said, I’d have to say dying in the Lowry Tunnel going to/from work or just getting into an accident going to/from work - it’s 25 miles away and MN roads can really suck.

Also that someone would break into my house. I think this fear was instilled by my mother who obsessively locked everything all the time. Which I still do. (She grew up closer to Philly in Upland, as opposed to my father who grew up in a small PA town in the 1950s. Not only would everything be unlocked, but the keys would be in the ignition!)

How does she still not lock her doors?!

Mn M.

I know right?!? So, one day we were driving down Chester Pike and we saw her boyfriend go into 7-11 and leave her car running! So she told me to pull over. She took her car! He came out and just stood there scratching his head like, oh crap!!
She then pulled in and started yelling at him to turn it off and lock the car.
So hopefully they lock their car doors now!
They are married :joy:

#TravelThursday

I have travelled a fair bit, but never enough. New Zealand is amazing...standing on a glacier in the morning and one a beach by the afternoon. Just stunning. My favorite place (so far) though is Paris. There is just something so magical and captivating about it. I lived there for a while and have travelled back a few times since. My husband, kids, and I are looking forward to our next trip back.

I love Paris! I want to go back someday.

AB

Me too! I’ve been twice and want to go back when the world opens back up. Recently I’ve found myself gravitating to movies and shows that take place in Paris.

    Shout out to my girl friends. As I get older I am more and more grateful to have a solid group of kickass friends. Men come and go, but the ladies in my life make life worth living.

    This is a pic of Jen, Jenna, me, and Ro after doing peanut butter jelly shots in the alley for my 41st. Yes, I am holding a bottle of champs. As I do.

  • #ShoutoutSunday to my grandmother. She's super toxic and drives me crazy, but when I was a kid I loved her more than my parents and her house was my favorite place, plus she raised me and my brother after our dad died. Throwback pic to when this happened

    Don’t y’all wish you could dress like me for work?? Lol and the high school I’m teaching at this year and another hs in the district are now on the MN Dept of Health dashboard for having 5+ confirmed cases over a two week time. Awwwwesome. You know which hs ISN’T on the list?? The one at which I usually teach. Such fun.

    I don’t think there’s enough therapy sessions available for me if I quit this job.
    It’s a family business. Shit would get awkward fast.
    I come from a family of workaholics, codependency, and alcoholism. It all goes together in a neurotic blend, like emotional napalm for the soul.
    Sure, our family can castrate your dreams and guilt you into thinking that you’re useless anywhere else, but at least I can sit and crochet between projects.

    Yes, I’m going back into therapy soon.
