Talking Is My Primary Function, And I’m Pretty Handy With The Words.

Quick Stats

Mother of 5 year-old twin boys, married for 12 years, middle school English teacher currently working part-time as a tutor for one of the local middle schools, lived in Gdynia, Poland from 1/2011 to 1/2013, but now firmly planted back on Texas soil

What’s My Special Purpose?

I am here to spread words that are funny, heartfelt, and thought-provoking. I am committed to grammar and its many fabulous gifts. I want to marry the Oxford comma, and I take to my bed over any novel I read that refuses to use a comma before the conjunction in a compound sentence. I am that serious about the rules.

I would love to some day shake my hyper cocker spaniel tendencies and write a novel or seven, including one detailing our two years as expats in a region of Poland with limited English-speakers. I also want to get back to full-time teaching and am working on a venture which will bring me to homeschooled students so that I can pee whenever I want. (If you’re not a teacher, this perk may be lost on you.)

So, again, I hope my words bring you laughter and are grammatically correct. If not, you have my permission to mock me. Gently. You may reach me at

  1. Hi There! My family and I may be making a move to Krakow in a year or so and Farrah of “The Three Under” suggested I contact you. If you don’t mind me asking, how was it as an American expat in Poland? Did you find it was a good place to raise children? What were the challenges? The positives? I’d be appreciative of any advice/information you might be able to pass along. I do realize you were in Gydnia, which is probably very different from Krakow . . .
    We are an American family living in Bangkok, Thailand and we’re due to depart next summer. I have a blog site also – It’s so much fun to connect with other mom bloggers, especially those who have lived as expats abroad.
    Thanks so much for your time.
    Warm Regards,
