How 'bout those Olympics?! Actually, I haven't really watched any yet. What have I missed?
Onward to the gratefulness. This was a week of much snow and cold. I'm grateful that it got warm. Also, the warmth revealed just how much snow we got because it all started to melt which resulted in water, water everywhere! This is good for the state.
With that, I'd like to give a shout out to my Cabela's women's heavyweight parka. I've had it since before Meego, and it has yet to meet its match! We had subzero windchills most of the week, and I just laughed, AHAHAHAHAHahahah! PLUS, despite its age, it's still quite fashionable. Here I am:
But, close enough.
Yesterday, I got in some nice mom time with Wolfgang. He called and said he needed some new running shoes, could we go to the running store? Even though the driving purpose for my presence is that I wield the credit card, running is one of our shared interests, and I always find these romps to the running store and the ensuing conversations enjoyable.
The trip also served as my first opportunity to invoke the power of my recent running organization membership. Yep, "saved" some nice cha-ching on those shoes! Who cares if my name is spelled incorrectly on my membership card?
And Wolfgang and I got caught up on how things are with school and such. We are in the same math class - although, thankfully not the same section. How weird woud THAT be? He had a few questions and concerns about the class, but I think he'll be fine.
Similarly, a somewhat joy that is also a sorrow is that I continue to get requests for tutoring, but I must turn them down out of lack of time. I also miss the kids I sloughed off when I started the teacher program. School, as expected, leaves me with little time to tutor, but in the end, I'll be in a better place, and there is light at the end of the tunnel. Plus, I've realized that I'm actually learning some good stuff rather than just jumping through some hoops to get a piece of paper.
And on a final note, Meego is about to get a much needed haircut.
Actually, that's no guarantee, but I'm hoping that putting it in the blog will make it so.
