It’s Friday! I vote that we hit the ground running. Five things that just trickled out of my brain:
I’ve been at professional development all week. It’s been awesome and has gotten me really charged up and ready for school to start, but I’m also up to my eyeballs in to-do lists right now. There is so, so, so much to be done. Thankfully, I haven’t found myself feeling too tired being on the go-go-go all day every day. Although, ask me again after the students arrive, and I might be singing a different tune.
2. Schmutz, to tell or not: Earlier in the week, I came home from work, looked at myself in the mirror, and realize that I’d be walking around for who knows how long with schmutz on my face! Argh! Don’t you hate that? No one told me. I don’t know that I’d tell an acquaintance that they had stuff on their face, but damn, I wish someone had told me. Now I’m Schmutz Face Girl. I’m like I Love Lucky but not as cute or charming.
I had my first taste of El Taco Tote recently. Me gusto mucho! This place is on every other corner in EP, but I never felt the pull to go there. (I’m a Taco Cabana girl these days.) Well, I went this week, and I loved it! If you’re familiar with Rosa’s, this is similar. It’s restaurant-style food in fast food clothing with free chips and a ginormous salsa bar. Upon tasting the deliciousness, I said, “This is dangerous.” I stand by that assessment.
4. Pigeon post: My love for yoga is still going strong. I dutifully show up twice a week and let the master yogi lead me through the flows, or whatever. Twice this week, she had us doing pigeon and holy mcmoly. It felt amazing! My hips haven’t felt this good in months. I’m thinking that will majorly help when I’m out running eight miles tomorrow with Wear Blue.
There are still months left in the deployment, but Stephen got an updated estimated “Adios Afghanistan!” date. I know that it could change, as these things do, but it’s a nice date. It’s a date I really like. It’s the McDreamy of dates. And it’s less than 100 days from now. I don’t want to pin my hopes on it, but too late. I know, I know, but, did I mention that it’s a really good date?
