I had to look in my Spam folder to find the e-mail. So then I checked to make sure it was even a legitimate offer. Apparently it is.

But...does anyone else think it's odd that Zappos is going to...

I wonder if it's because they douse the linens in bleach and it makes everything feel scratchy and overwashed?

This is a really, really sad post.

It would be one thing if you entered her life when she was older, but you raised her since she was 2. That's her whole life. It means her first memories are of...

I have an accidental capsule wardrobe, too. I never buy anything unless I can think of a couple things in my closet it will go with. I love the idea! It makes dressing and coordinating so much easier.

I don't think it's you either! There has definitely been a change, and not for the better. The other problem we have is no longer being allowed to give consequences for behavior. Imagine if every...

We have the same problem. One "cook" for 500 kids! All she can handle is heating up the food and sometimes even that is too much. Today's taco salad was still frozen. And it was cookie day, so she...

I finally got that sticky flypaper. It was gross, but it helped a lot.

Well, I don't know about playing, but is he getting enough sleep? From 9 until 7 in the morning would only be 10 hours and I thought kids that age need at least 12. Maybe I'm wrong.

My furnace is at least 25 years old too. A few years ago, I called some companies for estimates on replacing it. I was worried about it breaking down too. One man came out and looked at it and then...

I hate this weather!

It's the last day of September and it was 88 degrees here! So hot in the classroom that I left as soon as the kids did.

But the worst is the humidity. I came home to my condo and my walls are...

Dry food every day and wet food as a treat. Though I give extra wet food in the summer when it's particularly hot and I want to make sure they stay hydrated.

Well, since it was 80% of the class who didn't do it correctly, I would be inclined to say the lesson needs to be re-taught and the kids need more practice, before it's a graded assignment.

Once upon a time, it was all based on seniority. But then we had a governor who neutered our union and districts decided they could lay off whoever they want, whenever and however they want. So one...

I agree -- no meetings alone with your P or with HR. From now on, every meeting that is an evaluation is done with a union rep present. If you are talking to the P and the conversation turns to the...

I don't think 8:30 is late for a meal at all - very typical in the larger city I live in, especially for a Saturday night.

Frankly, as soon as I had to drive around looking for an ATM, he would...

One thing that I think is hurting our kids is the lack of instruction in social studies and science. I teach 4th, and the kids have no clue - they can't identify the oceans, don't know who Harriet...

How long will you be away over Thanksgiving? I can leave my cats unattended for up to 4 days and they are fine (extra litter boxes, automatic feeders, water). This summer when I went on a trip, I was...

You absolutely don't have to love them, but I hope that by the end of the year, you find yourself loving them a little bit. Or at least, liking them and laughing at some of their silly moments.

I'd try once more to contact the teacher and if there is no response, I'd go to the principal. There is no reason for the child to "comply" with an unreasonable demand. I have a given name and a...

I have never, ever heard of publishing someone's evaluation in a public forum. Do you have a union? I can't imagine my union ever allowing it. But I also can't imagine my admin thinking this was good...
