So since a majority of my life right now is at school, I figured I would blog about that. My classroom has full on become a zoo. It's my fault because I can't say no and I love animals a little too much. This is what I have to go to every day:
I have two red slider turtles that showed up a couple of weeks ago. They are the smelliest things ever and I pretty much have to clean their cage twice a week. BUT, when their little faces look at you, they are so cute! They always look like they are smiling!
Angel, the leopard gecko, is a classroom favorite. She was a donation from my stepmom who was trying to get rid of her. She is pretty low maintenance and I highly recommend her for a pet.
Noodles the snake holds a special place in my heart. I got him my second year of teaching and he has managed to survive six more years of grubby kids and moving from apartment to apartment. I love him, but I expect him to go soon since they only live to be about seven.
My firebellied toads crack me up. They are always croaking when its quiet. Plus they have such a smug look on their face. Silly guys.
I know...beta fishes are really simple, but I have seriously become attached to my beta Orlando. Every morning he swims over to a certain spot in his bowl and waits for me to feed him. So cute!
Am I a nerd or what???

So I went to Las Cruces this weekend on a spur of the moment trip. I was getting a little frustrated with the whole waiting on our letter and thought that if I just went and had some fun with Mike, I would feel better. And it worked. But anyway, as I was there, I kept thinking about what I will be doing when I move to Las Cruces and so I kept a mental note of things I plan on doing.
One. I looked for smoothie places and was excited to find out Tom Young's Fitness Center has one, which sold me. So this will be where I work out:
Two. I will mountain bike on the weekends and definitely on Tuesday nights. (I went on Saturday and actually did pretty well considering it had been almost eight months.)
Three. Every once in a while I will make Mike take me to Si Senors, even though every time I go there I feel guilty afterwards for all the calories. I wish I didn't like food so much.
Four. Antique shops and farmers markets. There are so many.
Five. De-weed the front and the back yard. I looked out Mike's window this morning and glared at the weeds growing in. Death to them!
Six. Make trips to Cloudcroft, a beautiful little town in the mountains.
Seven. Go down to Old Mesilla and walk around at the little shops and feel like a tourist.
Eight. Take a spanish class at NMSU. So many people speak Spanish, and I want to understand it dang it. You think three years of high school and one year of college would pay off?? No way. I forgot everything!
