Where Have I Been?

It’s been well over a month since I blogged, and yes I suck for not getting back on here sooner.  As soon as I said goodbye to my old job and hello free time, my free time well wasn’t that free anymore.  All of a sudden I had stuff to do everyday.  What kind of stuff?  Well, it’s just been STUFF.  My life has been Go Go Go.  So unless you really want a very long blog about what I’ve been doing, I’ll just talk about the highlights.

June was my last month as a TA and as the last day kept coming I was very sad to let it go, but I knew that I would have to in order to keep moving in the direction I wanted to go.  At the beginning of June I was really stressed out, Finals were fast approaching, the kids were going to have their culmination, we had luncheons we had to plan, it was all a big mess.  At that point I couldn’t wait for school to end, but as a surprise at the culmination with the help of some parents they all said goodbye.  I knew something was up, but as those parents stood up with their signs, my emotions came rushing out.  Let me tell you, bawling in front of roughly 200 people is pretty embarrassing.   They left me with a gorgeous photo of all the kids holding up the same signs the parents held up that day.  I knew that I was stressed out, but I had to turn my attitude around and enjoy the kids as long as I had them. enjoy working with the amazing parents, and enjoy working with my co-workers, some of the most amazing and talented teachers and aspiring teachers I will ever know.

Chris and I got away for a few days to Las Vegas.   The trip was highlighted by the most amazing meal we have had.  We weren’t thrilled about the accommodations we received at the Luxor, but we LOVED eating at Tender in the Luxor.  Everything was wonderfully prepared and the chocolate cake was perfection.

Our summer has been littered with Dodgers games and I love my Dodgers, but 3/4 were disappointing.  We went to 2 games against the Yankees, and of course they happen to be the two games they LOST!  But on a brighter note, I think I have solidified Chris’ allegiance to the Dodgers and I think he will find it very hard to go back to loving the Yankees.  We went to a Cubs game that they won and it was great to be able to go with my “sister” Stacy and to reconnect with her after a couple years of not seeing her.  The last game we saw was against the Giants and that game broke my heart.  We had it, but a dropped ball and some nasty ejections led to me leaving the game before it was over for the first time in my life.  I have sat through some miserable losses and never turned around to leave until the last play, but it was ugly and Chris and I left.

So with all this busy time, I really am going to make an effort to blog more…promise.

Oh!  We have been taking pictures too in all our busyness, here are pictures of our tour of the Diemer Water Plant with SARBS.
