I took honors Spanish in high school and then two years in college. There was a time that I used to speak Spanish pretty well, but it is crazy how quickly you lose it when you don’t use it. Living in Southern California, Spanish is everywhere, so it would be really convenient if I was able to beef it up again. So…I am planning on taking Spanish next semester at my local community college in the Fall. Anyone wanna join me?

It is raining in San Diego today. Lord knows we need the water. It has been total drought conditions around here, so much so that my grass is turning brown because we can’t water it lest we pay a giant water bill. I love days like today, although it makes me just want to curl up at home with a blanket and a book, not be at work actually being productive.

Happy Friday!

Waiting Game

I just sat down and counted the calendar. I have 30 working days left until summer. Last week was teacher appreciation week. I laughed that it always happens to fall right when teachers have hit their limit. I am totally done. Feel like I’ve hit a wall and now have to army crawl to the finish line. Just gotta keep chanting “I think I can, I think I can…” although I’m not so sure I can. I’ve got my summer bucket list written out and can’t wait to start crossing things off of it.

Ants

We have been in our house for almost seven years. Five of those years were spent gloriously ant free, but since last summer, we have been under attack. We put spray and poison out and it works for a couple days, but they always seem to come back with stronger and more persistent troops. The other day I woke up and my floor was literally black from their coverage. I’m starting to think the only way to combat them is to burn my house down. Ugh. Any tips or tricks? Although I feel like we’ve tried all of them…

That Elusive Number

Remember how I said my husband and I are racing to see who can get to 148 pounds first? Well, neither of us are there yet. It’s crazy how hard it is to get to a certain number. We have both been just a few pounds off for the last two and a half months. He even stepped on the scale the other day and while it was calculating it hit 148, but then evened out at 146. I weighed myself at night once at 149.2, but then when I woke up, I had gone up! What the heck?! It’s almost comical how ridiculous this contest has gotten.

Happy weekend!

All Things Felicity

I’ve been rewatching the Felicity series (for the 4th time) and I am feeling so nostalgic. Because I was in college at the same time, it’s almost like watching videos of myself (although I don’t have naturally curly hair and didn’t go to college in New York, but it’s practically the same). The audio tapes she makes for Sally, her turtlenecks, the angst about figuring out who you are/who you want to be and the feeling in life that everything is moving so slowly. It makes me want to go back in time and slap my 19-year-old self and tell her to enjoy it all because it really does go by so quickly.

Sleep When I’m Dead

We just had Spring Break last week and it flew by. We were fighting a cold the whole week, so that didn’t make it very fun either. I have a real problem “slowing down” though. I know I should have rested, but there is just way too many things to be done (aka deep clean the freezer) to lay in bed all day. Like the saying goes, I’ll sleep when I’m dead. ;)
