But it's all good. In fact, on Monday, Meego was off of school on account of marijuana appreciation day. In addition, 4/20 is also the anniversary of the Columbine shootings. Since Colorado is the site of the shootings AND has legalized recreational marijuana with the related "smoke-ins" that the day brings, most school districts smartly set that day as a professional development day. Less volatility. I'm in agreement.
So anyway, since he had the day off, we took a field trip after my class was done. Remember that bike shop gift certificate I won last semester? It was burning a hole in my dresser, so we went and spent it ALL at Old Town Bike Shop.
I was on the hunt for mudflaps for Bella because I'm tired of being sprayed up and down in our spring weather. I found some lovely ones. Bella looks a bit butch, but she seems to like it that way - on rainy days anyway. She's made it clear that there will be no wicker basket to offset the butch flaps.
Meego talked me into getting him some fast tires for his bike and then commenced to picking out a nice pair. After that, all that was left of my gift certificate was about $20, so I got a t-shirt to make sure we spent it all.
In other updates, Magnum and I continue to hunt for geocaches. We've found some and searched in vain for others - all within easy walking distance from our house, so China is enjoying the adventures too.
And this semester is winding down - just a couple of more weeks. So we are now in the throes of final papers and projects. I'm busy, but very much enjoying the fray. Have I mentioned how content I am with this master's program? Yes? Okay.
Speaking of which, I should stop blogging and get on with school stuff. I have the words of Walter White echoing in my head. "Apply yourself!" Because Magnum and I finally got on the Breaking Bad bandwagon and have become fully addicted
