A Week in Santa Fe

To make a long story short, I moved unexpectedly about a month earlier than planned, thus the radio silence here on the blog.

Otherwise, things have been going great! Work has been going very well, and while I am proud of all that I have done this year, I have so many ideas on how to make next year better, both as an art teacher and as a testing proctor. I have things settled enough at my new place, and just got Comcast today. Woot! The return of my internet means I can join civilization again.

Over my spring break my father and I visited an old high school friend in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I had never been, and it was a glorious week of eating tasty things, art galleries and seeing beautiful new places!

Over the week, my dad and I took a green chile cooking class, hiked a gorgeous mountain, enjoyed a fantastic little bookstore called Moby Dickens, and snarfed some delicious carrot cake!

Happy Weekend! What are you doing for your mother’s day tomorrow?



Dogs, Cats and Dentists

Today is my last day of work for this week, and it is a short day because I have an emergency visit to the dentist. I don’t know about you, but I really dislike going to the dentist. I like my dentist, I really do, but the poking, prodding, and the noises really stress me out. I always walk away feel sore at the gums.

On Sunday, I broke my bottom retainer. Like completely out of my mouth (it’s a bridge glued in to my teeth).

So, instead of freaking out about it, I am going to look at these cute pictures of my lovely snuggle-buddies, and think happy thoughts about what I will get on Black Friday.





I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I know the pups are a big stress reliever for me. What do you do to relieve stress?

Can’t wait for Thursday!
