School again?!

It's been a little rainy, but it actually cleared up for a bit this evening. I'm kind of bummed that I'm getting less hours at work, but what can I do?! Supposedly it slows down in the summer, but I'm hoping I'll get more hours than this week and next, we'll see.... I even have a four day weekend coming up, so we're heading up to Nevada City tomorrow because we can! And tomorrow I sign up for online summer classes, so that hopefully by the end of the summer I'll have enough units to have more kids in a classroom with me and a teacher.
Mostly I hope that my mom actually gets her brace off on Friday... seeing as she's already planning on it..

So.... I actually missed a day of taking a picture for the first time (fell asleep super early after a long day). And, consequently, I've decided to stop taking a picture a day. Instead I'll just take pictures and post on here whenever I feel like it.

We got this awesome red desk at a thrift store. Despite the fact that it's bigger than the table that was in the kitchen, the room feels way more spacious, and we have way more counter space and storage. Plus, we now have a table and chairs in the living room. First meal at a table, instead of on the coffee table, was great. Even the living room feels more open the way it's set up now. weird. Really happy with it though. (and the two chairs we got from the Roberts. thanks!)

Some birds nest. Anyone know what kind?! It's in a backyard in San Jose.

A great weekend is ending, with a crappy loss by the Sharks. I think I'm actually a fan of a sports team for the first time in my life. It's fun!

6 April 2010

A toast to Joe's birthday! I missed it totally, but still want you to know that I'm thinking about you and hope you're doing well. All the best :)

Home again. Our trip was great. I'm so glad I got to spend so much time in CO with my mom, dad, and other family! I got more than I was expecting from my tax return so I splurged on a bottle of 16 dollar wine!!
That was a lot of posting for one day......
