I finally changed my background now that our beach vacation has come and gone.  I left it up in anticipation of our trip.  It was fabulous, in case you were wondering. 

First things first.  I have been anxious to share this picture with all of you.

This was in some small Texas town somewhere on I-10 between Ft. Stockton and San Antonio. 

Never in my life have I ever seen a walk-in, sit-down Sonic with a play area.  I didn't know how to order without that little menu outside my car window.

Are you tired? Cuz you've been running thru my mind all day!


I am still here...just not as often.

As you have probably noticed I now have a job that I actually have to do work for.  Say goodbye to the wonderful 2.5 hour lunch breaks and mindless days.  Say goodbye to free evenings and weekends. 

And hello to grading papers and doing lesson plans.  And last minute brainstorms that take 2 hours a night.  And trips to the store late at night.  (Did you know that you can only buy one package of Sharpie's at a time?)

Oh, don't worry.  I absolutely love my job and love my subject and enjoy using my brain again for something more than just preventing my skull from caving in on itself.  But it certainly has taken up a lot of my spare time.  It's definitely interfering with my internet life. 

There are so many things I would love to share with you all, but you'll just have to be patient and wait for me to find the time.  I haven't forgotten about you and I hope not all of you have abandoned me. 

Please, please don't leave me.  *insert puppy dog eyes*

Life is speeding along at warp speed for us.  We are still busy with our usual Bible study, Awanas, ballet, and youth night.  I somehow manage to squeeze in other hairbrained idears too.  Like cramming in a trip to Cruces to shop, and go to the Mesilla Valley Maze, then rush back for the monster truck show here in Silver.  Yes, I know I am crazy.  For those of you not from these here parts, Las Cruces is a 1.5 hour trip- each way.

Welpers, gotta run.  Tracey wants her braided in a bunch of teeny tiny braids. 

Au revoir,

Not sure what au revoir means, but it sounded cool.

I Wanna Be....

....knee deep in the water somewhere...

This weekend we are headed to Corpus Christi, TX for a week long beach vacation.  No thrills, no frills, just the beach.  Just typing that makes me feel relaxed.
