I Got 25 Bucks and a Cracker


The week is over! And I'm on fall break. Best break ever. Why? Because there is no pressure. No pressure to go on vacation, no pressure to have a plan every single day, and no pressure to plan for the next school week.

Really, my job is super. I had Thursday and Friday to sort of "catch up" on things and no students. I took this time to think about the chances of it raining next week so that I could get up in the morning, crawl downstairs with my down comforter, open the windows, and snuggle up on the couch and watch the boob tube all day. Doesn't that sound fabulous? Who cares if it's still 90 degrees out? I'm so looking forward to these days.

Last night, the hubs and I went to one of our favorite places, Amano. I love it because it's in our neck of the woods and it's a lovely neighborhood tiny restaurant with gourmet dishes but a casual atmosphere. I usually order the same thing and last time we went I had the pizza special, which was delicious. This time i tried the eggplant rollitini. Filling, but very good. It came with a side of orzo with garlic and collard greens and roasted veggies. Yum! I went to bed at a modest 8:30, falling asleep on the wrong side of the bed, and woke up at a lovely 8:00. Wow. We hit up the gym, then I proceeded to eat more food with my sis. I really like food.

Anyhoo, I'm a little late, but I'm ready to bust out the fall / Halloween decorations soon. I first have to find them. My first attempt at the attic was unsuccessful. I'm sure they're in the garage. Of course I wouldn't look in the easy spot first. That is my Saturday evening. What's yours?

You Suddenly Complete Me

Gooooooooooood morning!

Every day for the past two weeks I've said, "I can't believe it's already _________ (insert day of week)!" It's sort of a good thing the weeks are going by fast, I guess. I don't know what we're rushing along for, but  it always makes work feel a little easier.

This past weekend, J and I went to Flagstaff and brought the dogs with us. It was quite an adventure from the car ride, them having lunch with us (and Chase getting loose and wanting to hang out with us), and even going to the park for Octoberfest and the great dog park that Flagstaff has. The weather was wonderful and it was a nice, relaxing time. I was excited we got to see my brother. I'm so glad he decided to go to NAU and he is too! It's such a great place. Ahhh.

Anyway, this week is testing so we don't have any groups. Yesterday I got tons of work done and I'm hoping to do the same this week. Jonathan has fall break this week so he's been catching up on HIS laundry (he is terrible with laundry!) so it's been nice to come home to less to do. We also decided to join the gym they just opened in our neighborhood. I'm SO excited to start going. And I'm really going because it is so close and J is a great motivator. We went last night and did 20 minutes of cardio, then about 45 minutes of machine stuff (build me some muscle!). I'm also interested in their yoga class and I think I'll go tomorrow. Doing yoga at a gym is such a better deal than a yoga studio. Even though the levels might not be as varied, I'd rather pay $25 a month for a gym than $150 for a month of yoga!

This weekend is Megan and Andrew's wedding (don't cha love weddings?!) and that is about all we have planned. I have one more week of school after this week and then I get fall break. Yay! It kinda stinks we don't have the same fall break now since I switched districts but I'm kind of a loner and enjoy that time :)

Contract time!
