Tangent #1- I have a ridiculously awesomesauce job. I teach painting, sculpture, and drawing to high schoolers. I've done it for the last two years, but the last month since putting in my resignation has been the BEST because I am much more laid back and have stopped stressing out over every little minute detail.
It will be strange to not be in the classroom come fall but I am SO excited to be a full-time stay at home mom and hang out all day with my Baby D! After we get back from Spring Break next week I will have 6 weeks of teaching left.... I may not always be an Art Teacher but I will always be an Artist and a Teacher.
Tangent #2-I am OBSESSED with a lot of things, namely frozen Gogurt and Granny's Delight Sprouted Wheat Bread. Give me a freezerful of Gogurt and a loaf of Granny's and I am in heaven (although I can't guarantee it will last long!). Also on my list of obsessions? Having photos on my blog and of course taking photos of my Baby D (if you don't like him, you probably shouldn't be reading this blog!) and Getting a workout in. I won't go to bed unless I get SOME kind of workout in....running, elliptical, yoga, pilates, strength, ANYTHING to get my heart pounding. :) [Okay except for step aerobic classes... I can't STAND those classes!] Even on my "rest" days (usually Sunday) I will still go on walks with Baby D strapped in front of me (strength training, right??). If you're interested on what I'm doing this week in the way of workouts, you can check out my "Run" tab or click here. Just trying to get myself into swimsuit/racing form like I was pre-Baby D... And yes, those guns are legal :) barely.
Tangent #3-SPRING BREAK IS NEXT WEEK! One of the fabulous perks of working for The Man. Baby D and I are headed Friday afternoon to the 614 to see my parents and brother for the week. Too bad packing "pre-Baby D" was trying to figure out how many pairs of shoes I could fit into my luggage without going over the 50 pound weight limit. With Baby D in tow (and flying solo with him for the first time!), I am planning on fitting as much of his gear as I can in my suitcase. All I plan on bringing for myself would be the clothes on my back, running shoes & clothes, my BOB, and laptop. Wish me luck/any advice for flying with infant in arms?????
