Turn and face the strain

Where have I been?! At the beginning of the school year, I made all these resolutions -- about how I would teach, what I would teach, how the year would go. One of my resolutions was to keep up with my blog. Well, you can see how well that one went...and that might give you an idea of how the other ones went, too. A lot has changed this year...and I hate it when bloggers I read just disappear into the wilds of the Internet, so here is my update: Mr. Brave and I are expecting Baby Brave this summer, and I am taking the year off to (1) parent and (2) consider my career options. I've been teaching for five years, and I think I'm ready to move on. So if anyone knows of any job opportunities for a teacher/blogger/new mom, send them my way! And thanks for reading :)

Best of luck with the new baby! You ARE a great teacher and it's sad that you are leaving. But I am so proud of you and everything you've done! I finished my first year of teaching and discovered your blog while I was in college. Your blog helped to inspire me to take on teaching but prepared me for the challenges that I would face. Thank you so much and best of luck with everything!!

I wondered where you went. I used to read you all the time. I have noticed that many of the teacher blogs that I follow dryed up this last year, or the entries were way down, my own included. I think there are many factors involved, but it seems like we are all more stressed and I think there are a lot of reasons for that. The media seems to be on the attack, blaming teachers for so many things that aren't in their control. If you stay home with your baby, you are going to love it. Good luck.

I am here to tell you about a natural remedy that is
guaranteed to make you wonder why your doctor didn't tell
you about it. Then, on the other hand, it is pretty obvious
why your doctor didn't, because that's not his job, is
it? But, seriously, promise me you won't get too angry
with your health practitioner, it's really not their
fault. They can only practice what they're told to
practice, right?
When your health is at risk there's no time for Tom
foolery, you've got to get down to the cause and nip it
in the bud. So you've been suffering from painful gout
