I should totally not be blogging right now. I have so much reading and homework to get done before Sunday night it isn't even funny. Then I invited some friends over for Easter dinner and I have a house to clean on top of it. But, you know, sometimes you need to do things for you. Like blog and send people letters in the mail.
This week I worked 4.5 days. On one of those days I got to go to the Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals. Let's just say they had a lot of rocks and minerals. Normally, rocks aren't my thing. I hate teaching rocks and minerals in science. But, they had quite the collection of colorful rocks. I mean, like the whole spectrum of the rainbow. It was amazing. You know what it made me think of? "The whole earth is full of His glory" Isaiah 6:3. And how beautiful heaven is going to be with all the colors of the precious stones. Read Revelation 21. There was also a locked cabinet of gold. It looked like a gun safe, only it held gold instead of guns. I felt like I was on one of those Alaska gold mining shows for a split second. At the end, all the kids got to pick a free rock at the end which they thought was just the best thing ever.
One of the schools I was in this week has the prettiest courtyard ever. There are about 8 of these trees blooming out there with tulips and daffodils. I love these pink blossoms. I want one of these trees. It's like puff balls of pink.
The other day I registered for two summer classes. Foundations of Education and Foundations of Educational Technology & Online Learning. I'm debating a third class. It would mean taking two at the same time during July and August, and I was totally going to do it, but the guy kind of scared me out of it. We'll see.
I've been so tired. I fall asleep and take these 20 minute cat naps in the early evenings. We're eating too much crap food. I've got to figure out a better plan because going to Costco for a rotisserie chicken every night isn't going to work, or else our arteries are going to turn to plastic before I get my degree. I have been trying to get Wilson out for a walk, but I'm a fair weather walker, so when it rains, my dog gets the shaft.
However, spring break has arrived. And after Sunday night, I'll be able to relax a little bit and enjoy some time off with the hubs. Then we'll try to tackle some of those things on the to-do list.
Happy Easter, peeps!
