Spring break - Day 3

Saturday, April 03, 2010      8 comments

I am loving this time off. Yesterday I got so much done around the house! My family is coming up to visit today - my aunt and uncle haven't seen our house yet, and my mom hasn't been up for a while. I love showing people our house - I'm so pr... Read more

Oh money, where art thou?

So today I "slept in" a little later - 6:00. I woke up without the alarm. Huh. I love having this time to get stuff done around the house that needs attention. And because I have so much time, it's better for me to just *do* the stuff wh... Read more

Why was the band tired in April?

Thursday, April 01, 2010      10 comments

Because they just had a 31 day March! A little music teacher humor for you. Day 1 of Spring break. At 8:00 I am going to the trainer. I can't wait! I thought I'd sleep in today, but I woke up at 5:30 with no alarm. Guess my body is re... Read more

It's like a Friday for me - Spring break starts tomorrow. Yahoo! I'm looking forward to nice weather, planting flowers, washing windows, and wearing some skirts (the weather is supposed to be nice). I'm going to stock up on some decaf coffee... Read more

Running outside again!

Last night was my first night of First Strides, a running program designed for beginner to intermediate runners. One of the guys at the local running store seemed to think that I was beyond this (wahoo!), but I decided to sign up anyway. Last ... Read more

I could get used to this good mood thing!

Monday, March 29, 2010      8 comments

It's a three-day school week. This is putting me in a really good mood. I like my job, but I also like to have breaks. I had such a nice weekend. Despite spending too much of it writing papers I should have done during the week, I got a ... Read more

So this is what it feels like...

It is a rare day, indeed, when I can truly relax. As I am typing this blog, there are no thoughts of "huh, I should really do some laundry." I spent a lot of time cleaning the house yesterday, and today I am getting to enjoy my day. I have a ... Read more

Friday night? What's that?

Saturday, March 27, 2010      8 comments

When I was in high school and college, I was a serious night owl. I could stay up 'til all hours of the night. I left the house at 11pm to go out, often staying out until the sun came up. Didn't matter what night of the week it was, could hav... Read more

It's been a rough week...

Friday, March 26, 2010      6 comments

I know I can always count on you guys to make me feel like I know what I'm doing. I appreciate all the comments on my blog yesterday about my sick day. This week I haven't been Sparking as much (I don't know why, I just haven't) and I can ... Read more

What a difference a day makes...

Thursday, March 25, 2010      7 comments

Yesterday I was a mess. Runny and stuffy nose (I will never know how this can happen at the same time), watery eyes, sore throat... nasty cold stuff. Took a day off to get better and today I feel almost 100%. When I started teaching, I didn'... Read more

Now I know what a bear feels like.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010      5 comments

A bear in hibernation, that is. I came home from school yesterday, took a hot bath because I was FREEZING and then slept. Woke up to eat a little dinner, then slept some more. Went upstairs, took out my contacts, and slept. Got up this morni... Read more

Helloooooo shoulders.

When I started with my personal trainer, I told her I wanted some serious arms. Not those little wimpy arms, but arms with muscles. So she set me up on a circuit with push-ups, planks, planks with one arm rows (holy lat muscles), tricep dips o... Read more

Rest Day (phew!)

Sunday, March 21, 2010      2 comments

For being a rest day, I sure got a lot done! Honey and I did the grocery shopping, went to the hardware store, washed some windows, went for a nice leisurely walk around our neighborhood, and watched some Kitchen Nightmares and Star Trek from t... Read more

Short for Saturday

Saturday, March 20, 2010      5 comments

This morning I ran, I did Pilates, and I got a lot done from my to-do list. Went shopping, got some new sunglasses (it's been on my list for WEEKS), packed up the winter hats and scarves, and vacuumed downstairs. I didn't do as much cleaning a... Read more

I'm feeling thankful today.

Friday, March 19, 2010      11 comments

Within the last week or two, there has been sort of a "dark cloud" over my school. Deaths in families, mysterious illnesses, divorce... one of my colleagues and I both said that we're a little afraid to ask how anyone is anymore. Because o... Read more
