Where are you, Spring Break?

Thank goodness, you are only two days away!  Even though our school is going two days over Spring Break to make up a couple snow days, hubby and I will not be there.  We are Dallas bound on Saturday!  Yay!  I'm really excited because I haven't ever really spent time there.  Just gone though it on the way to San Antonio.

We have a lot of fun things planned to do and hopefully will have a little time to relax.  Our hotel has an indoor/outdoor pool so I plan on spending some time there.  I'm also hoping to have a little time to read for fun, not just for class.

But, first I have to make it though this class that I am sitting in, which at times can border on torture.  I also have to make it through the next two days of school.  That is a big task considering I have only worked one day this week so far.  I can't wait to get over this sinus infection.  I has been a bad one!  I also have to pack for the trip for hubby and I and get the cat ready for her stay at the vet.  My goal for tomorrow is to get my lesson plans ready for my sub for next Monday and Tuesday.

I know I can make it so that I can spend next week enjoying some beautiful spring weather in Dallas!

Early Birthday

I know it's been awhile since I have posted, but to be honest, I just haven't felt like writing a post.  I just haven't had that many interesting things to write about.  I've just been feeling a little down and out.  Come to find out for the past couple of weeks I have been fighting another sinus infection.  I seem to get those about 3-4 times a year.  They are a bummer and just hang around a lot!  Saturday morning I had finally had and went to the walk-in clinic.  Now I am feeling better on my antibiotics.  The only problem is I can't talk very well.  So I am spending my Monday home from work.

Yesterday hubby and I went to church, went to lunch, and were on our way to do some grocery shopping at Wal-Mart.  I think I mentioned something about how the weather was nice and it would be a good day to go riding bikes.  The problem is we don't have bikes. I have never had a nice adult bike and hubby's was run over several years ago and is beyond the point of repair.  I have been talking about wanting a bike since our super scary bike ride down the side of a volcano on our honeymoon in Hawaii.


Once we made it down the mountain and were cruising around the village, I really enjoyed it.  After we moved to Northwest Arkansas and saw all the really nice bike trails around here, I really wanted one.  There was a bike shop near Wal-Mart so we went there to look at what they had.  I tried out a couple different ones on the trail right behind the shop and found the one I like so hubby bought it for me for an early birthday gift.  We also got one for him, too.

new bike

This is my new bike.  I know how clumsy I am so I also got a matching helmet so hopefully I won't get hurt too seriously!


This is hubby's new bike.

Hopefully, we can pick them up later this week and get started on our new adventure together and enjoy spending time outside getting fresh air.  I realized that I am not much of a runner/jogger.  I just don't enjoy it, but hopefully I will continue to enjoy my new bike as a way to get exercise and spend time with my hubby.
