Random Tid Bits

  1. I've been tired, since Daylight Savings Time hit! Lights out early, so is my brain power. I've even bumped up my Vitamin D3.

  2. Isaak's been put in 2 groups at school. One group doesn't seem like they'll listen to him. The other group had one sleeper and another one that left the group to go do what they wanted. He's pretty frustrated. I don't blame him. While it's important to learn to work with people, middle school is a rough time even without being in groups.

    I was in a group in middle school where boys were violating my space. One put his pencil on my chair and said, "Sit and spin!" Then he kept putting his hand on my upper leg. You could say I hated groups at that moment! BUT I asked the teacher if I could switch, and said the boys were doing things to me that wasn't acceptable. He didn't ask questions, he let me switch groups. I got in a group with one of my best friends at the time. We're still friends. It was a negative situation that turned positive.

  3. Mr. Sunny is now pooping regularly. YAY! Not Vet follow-up.

    We actually have seen him grow. His tail is thickening up. Such a good thing! The Vet said his tail was too thin. His diet has expanded. He used to only eat 2 small mealworms every other day. Now he eats 1 superworm, and 2 small mealworms, or 1 cricket, and 2 small mealworms. We're attempting to breed mealworms and superworms. He could eat roaches, but after a fun back prick allergy test I know that's something I'm allergic too.

  4. I had a student that came to me and said, "I'm sorry I wasn't in class. I had a reaction to a med I was taking." I asked, "Can I ask what med you had problems with?" She said, "Well I had an allergy flair up, so I took Claritin D, an Equate Allergy, a Zyrtec, and a Montelukast. No one could wake me up."

    If you know anything about allergy meds, she basically took 3 of a similar med; overdosing! Montelukast is the generic of Singular. It's, it's own bird. Basically it's primarily for Asthma. The rest of what she took are all the same type of drug!

    I don't worry about drugs with students as much as I do with them mixing drugs! I hear all the time about them being on an anti depressant, and drinking on top of that. Not good!

  5. It might not stay this way, but as of right now Isaak has higher grades than Mica. Mica found out he had all A's mid way through. I think that went to his head.

Bluetooth Shower #speaker by AncordWorks Review

Make it an AncordWorks Christmas. They have different selections of bluetooth speakers. I think these make excellent gifts, for tweens or teens. Most of them have some kind of device like a Smart Phone, a Kindle, an iPad, and so on.

This time I got a round speaker to review:

Mica and Isaak both love their AncordWorks speakers. They use them in the bathroom, when they are taking a shower, in their rooms, in the kitchen when they are helping me, and outside when they are helping their Dad.

These Speakers Can be Used Around Water!

I wouldn't suggest using any electronic item in water, but this speaker can be used around it.

Want to go to the pool, the beach, perhaps a river? You can have this speaker on the side.

Want to listen to tunes in the shower? It comes with a suction cup to attach it to a shower door, wall, or you could just set it up on a shelf if you have one.

Carry it With You:

I like that it has a handle on the top. It's also great that it's fairly small, but puts out a lot of sound. It's 2.91 inches tall and wide. I think Mica could take this with him on his Chicago trip, and it would fit great in his suitcase. 

Durable Buttons:

When I got my first AncordWorks speaker to review I was impressed that the buttons are silicon. Even the port that it has, has a silicone cover. This speaker is the same as their others. 


I got the green color to review. It's an olive green. They say on the box that it comes in black and an orangeish brown. I don't see the color options on their Amazon link. Amazon often tells you where to get other products. I don't see the different colors there either. I do have a complaint, I'd like to see the color options when one goes to purchase this speaker.

Where to Get it:

You can pick up this speaker, all it's accessories and manual on Amazon for $18.07. It's on Prime, so free shipping if you're a member. It comes with a 12 month warranty. I don't know that we'll need it.

What is one gift that you bought this year to give to a teen or tween?
