Silver Liningness Sunday

...on an actual Sunday! It's only right.

First of all, this week was a nice mellow one work-wise. Really, I'm not a work-a-holic at all, I was just posing as one for a while there. I only had two class sessions this week.

One of my tutor students cancelled because of sickness, and another class that was supposed to begin this week was cancelled because only 4 students had enrolled. Normally, these aren't necessarily good things, but I really needed the break. So, while not happy for the sick student or the 4 others that are now scrounging for another class, I'm grateful!

On that note, I'm thankful for the flexibility of my job and also thankful for Magnum and his job, all of which allow me to take a load off as needed.

Wolfgang had his final cross-country meet on Friday as mentioned. It was a nice way to finish out the season. Conditions were perfect - favorable temperatures, slightly overcast skies, the pink shoes.... - he was very pleased, unlike the previous meet where it was an unseasonably hot 80 degrees with the sun boring down and Chipotle for dinner the night before... um, yeah.

As for my activity, I surpassed the 1300 mile mark for my own running on the year this week. Fall is my favorite season for running. Next stop, 1400 miles.

AND, we mustn't forget quality time with las bicicletas! I don't keep track of those miles, but they're all good.

(segue into the learning-to-speak-Spanish thing). Yep, I'm making it a priority to keep up with my spanish lessons each day. Today, for instance, I learned desayuno, almuerzo, y cerna among other things.

In movie news, we watched The Red Baron. I mainly got it because I figured the kids would like the dogfight scenes, which were very well done by the way. But I actually liked it for myself. Gotta love a love story.



  1. You did seem to be a little on the crazy-busy side for a while there. It's nice that you've got a little mellow happening for a while.

    Congrats on surpassing the 1300 mile mark in your running! That just amazes me and also makes me just a little bit jealous of your ability :-)

  2. I'm still running, too, but still nowhere near your mileage. I still like to fit in my tennis and horseback riding...oh, and carpooling, paying bills, cooking, laundry, etc. too! Yippee!

    Seriously, Congratulations! I love the fact that you manage your life so well and are able to succeed at your goals.

    I know have three kids learning Spanish,something that I want to learn too.
    Maybe in a couple years, I'll comment on your blog in Espanol. :)

  3. 1300 miles - WOW! I am in awe!

    Good luck with your Spanish endeavour! I've been learning Japanese on and off for over a year now but it's kind of taken a back seat to study this year. One day!
