updates

... i *gulp* think i like my job. i know, i know. when i started i couldn't stand it. it was hard, no one was nice, every day was a battle. everything was broken ... and on and on. but, you know what? that's life. things don't always work. not everyone is born into a family that has money and can provide for them. people lose their jobs, their houses, their family ... it sucks, but it's real. the kids i teach, have no dilusions of what reality is, and they may not always "put school first", but they can't. i like working with kids everyday who have "real" issues and problems. who need and deserve scholarship money. of all the places i've worked at, this is a place where it really matters that i show up every day. i'm going to be sad to say goodbye in may.
... it was thundersnowing this morning. really, april? what happened to the sun?
... i was so upset that duke won last night. aside from the fact that i always root for the underdog, i hate duke.
... i really should start cooking more. i don't know how much longer we can survive off of chicken noodle soup and peanut butter sandwiches.
... if i don't hurry up and book a hotel for our anniversary weekend, we're going to end up going to boulder for the day and calling it a trip.
... i'm pretty excited for the weather this weekend. high 60s and we're going to the rockies game on sunday. last year we went to a game opening weekend and it was snowing.
... i've got to go hiking this weekend. although, i don't know how to break it to charlie that i don't want to ski on the last weekend of the year.
... i've been dreaming about a beach trip this summer. my only hope is if my parents decide to rent a place & invite us, dogs and all ...

Go Rox.

getting ready for some more of this ...

Our anniversary is in a week and a half and we still don't have something booked for it. Well, we have a babysitter, but nowhere to go. Good luck scheduling something!
