Chill out!

Why is it that I insist on doing things last minute? At the beginning of this semester I was assigned 4 article reviews and 1 research paper. Each is to be between 2-4 pages. No big deal, right? These are the only 5 assignments we were given in this class. He told us that we had until May 1st to get them all done.
So here we are now...Friday, April 28th and I haven't written a single thing. Wouldn't be that big of a deal, I am used to doing things last minute, but we are leaving to go to Oklahoma today so that Ryan can run his marathon. (Everyone say a little prayer Sunday morning between 6:30 and 9:30) Only after I have tennis tryouts until 4:45 at the same time that I am supposed to be on a committee interviewing an assistant principal candidate 2:30. So I am borrowing Jonathan's laptop so that I can write some while I am there. I did this to myself...don't feel sorry for me.
I am laughing at my agenda from this week that has me writing one paper a day and I would have been finished by now and could have a relaxing weekend in Oklahoma...but that just makes too much sense!

Busy, Busy

This weekend we went to Abilene for Easter. I rode with H & J and the kids on Friday and then Ryan came on Saturday. We were busy! Dad got Heather and I mountain bikes so we went to the bike store because we needed a bottle holder for our water...that I will definitely be needing when I ride this summer! Then I had to find invitations for Ryan's grad party. Then we went to the mall and my mom bought all of us new shoes. Thanks MOM! And then we went home and dad cooked supper. On Saturday we took our new bikes for a ride, went to eat at a new restaurant that was great and then had a family tennis match. Heather and I schooled Mom and Ryan! On Sunday we went to church, hunted Easter eggs and then the San Angelo crew came in for lunch. It was good to see everyone. I am now going to have to refer you to my cousin's blog for the most amazing easter lunch story ever. This story is the main purpose of writing this entry today. But I can't write it better than Robin did. Please enjoy!!!

Not using spell check or delete or backspace

Do you remember when you were in high school and you had to type without looking at the keys? Sometimes I am really good at it. For example I have wrieetn all o f this without using th backspave or delete key. I always have to fo back and delete and re-type things and it is gettng annyyoing so I thought I would write a post weher I did not allow myeslef to backspave and delete. Obviulsy I loke the v key insted of the c key. I wish that you could all see me wiret (that was bad, it is supposed to be right)now. I am laughing at myslek. I think it is destracting me from being ablt to type well. Ohhhh, I hiope that you get as much ejoyment our of reading this as I ddid tupeing it.

Looong Week

I can already is going to be a long, long week. Not just because of the time change, even though it did make me throw up a little bit when I got in my car and the clock read 5:11. Yuck!!

Ryan's parents came down this weekend to hang out with us. We had lots of fun! Friday night we went to Central Market for some burgers and then we watched Bowen while Heather, Jonathan and Laine went to Ice Age 2 and then Ryan's parents got here around 9:00 ish. I am not exactly sure what time that arrived because I might have been asleep on the couch...

Saturday we went shopping and bought a grill and Ryan's parents bought us a lawn mower, weed eater and some flowers. Between that and my parents getting us a washer and dryer we feel like real grown ups! We cooked out Saturday night and then I fell asleep on the couch again around 9:30. I am such an old person sometimes.

Sunday we slept in and then worked in the yard. It was really fun...for now. Ask me about yard work in about 3 months and we will see how I feel about it.

Now it is Monday...I feel a little bitter knowing that I am at work and Ryan is at opening day at the ballpark but such is life. I am down in the dumps so I have been trying to find things that make me okay with being at school. So I have started counting down:

2 more Tuesday matches in tennis
9 school days until Good Friday
2 weeks until TAKS
6 weeks of grad classes
8 weeks of school left

I think I can make it.
