I enjoy reading, learning things, and watching my children grow and learn, which makes being a home educator a good fit for me.
As I age, I become less and less interested in what I have to say, which makes blogging a pastime that inspires intense ambivalence in me.
If I could live anywhere in the world, I would. I love moving to new places. I’ve lived in seven U.S. states (and have had a drivers license in six of them) and three of the four time zones in the contiguous United States. I have yet to collect a home address in the Central Time Zone, but I’d be willing to give up that goal to live in another country.
I dream of one day being able to hold a conversation in a language other than English. I’m really close in Spanish; all I need is to find the courage to speak to a Spanish-speaking person in Spanish, preferably without being drunk.
About Imperfect Happiness
Today, Imperfect Happiness is a combination of book-related posts (“Bookends” and “My Year in Books” monthly and annual recaps, book reviews, Cavalcade of Classics) and personal reflections on homeschooling, being a mother, and life in general, both the day-to-day and from a broader, philosophical perspective.
Check out the menu links and the Top Posts to the upper right for more of what Imperfect Happiness has to offer. Or start with a handful of my favorite posts, which I’ve listed below.
