Roll the windows down, turn the radio up...

Today was a day when I breathed in air and my lungs felt fresh and new instead of frozen and sick. I saw only a handfull of cars on the way home who did not at least have one window cracked. Tomorrow is supposed to be 60 degrees. Life is good and happy. Now I just need to think of some good "educational" reason to take the kids outside so we're not cooped up in the classroom all day. Hmmm...

Chris and I had a great weekend. Despite the sadness of not going to Moab, we were extremely productive and had a great weekend of being a happily married young couple. We went out to eat for a few meals, watched a movie or two, cleaned and organized the house (4 bags of old clothes are being picked up by the Vietnam Vets on Wednesday), and *GASP* washed the car! I know, I know, it's some kind of Groundhog's Day miracle. 7 snowstorms, a trip to Moab, a frozen hose and a garden sprayer made for a long car washing experience. I decided that there are two things that are deeply imbedded in the core of our not-even-1-year-old-Element: dog hair and Moab sand. If only we could figure out a way to make some sort of alternative fuel source out of those two. Hmmm...

Only a 4 day week this week! Chris and I are heading out in the weeeeee early hours of Friday morning for a flight to Chicago with my parents, then a bit of a jaunt to snowy Michigan for a whirlwind wedding weekend. We'll be back Sunday night. Good thing we love Becky a lot -- we are leaving the first potentially nice weekend in 8 weeks for bitterly chilly weather for her wedding. She and Ryan are worth it though and we're really looking forward to the trip!

In other news, I got a sweet new blue SLR for blooby courtesy of Ramin (WOOHOOO!!! I'm such a matchy matchy bike person, it makes me soooooo excited!) and Turb got some new tennis ballies!



Smile, breathe in the air and refresh your lungs -- well, unless you are walking behind an old Chevy, then you feel like you might die -- take it from personal experience.

Having grown up during the depression I didn't realize anybody got a new bike, but we all enjoyed riding those second hand jobs.
