Spring Break










1. I placed first in the Coyote Classic. (see previous blog).



2. I deweeded the front lawn and side yard and added some touches outside. I can't wait to do the back yard!



3. I BBQ'd a couple of times, inclding Mike's birthday shin dig after a Tuesday night ride. Success.



4. I finally got to get Christa out for a ride so I can officially now have another girl to ride with when Lisa has to work.



5. I went through my closet and got rid of clothes I don't wear and organized Mike's rummaged through mountain bike clothes.



6. I flew to Vegas to see my family.



7. I got to get a tour of my sister's gym and pretend like I was still living in Vegas so I could get a free week's pass. Afterwards I did an extremely hard Pilates class that kicked my butt.



8. I went shopping with my mom and sister just like old times.



9. I watched Sarah do her dance routine to "Fuego", which is really awesome by the way.



10. I got to go to a morning session at the Las Vegas Temple. I love that temple so much. I almost started crying when I walked in. It reminded me of all the after school sessions I would go to. Never take for granted having a temple in your home town. Living in Las Cruces has reminded me of how important the temple is to me and I can't wait til we get one closer to us!



11. I got to eat a sandwich with my dad.



12. I got to play a game of Guesstures with the whole family and see how talented Jen and Wayne are at charades.



13. I laughed really hard with my sister about silly things. It felt so good!



14. I got to sit and watch a BBC movie with my mom and enjoy chattering about England.



15. I got to sleep in A LOT!


16. I finished a book I have been trying to read for a long time!


17. I got to eat sushi with Jen, Wayne, Dave, and Laura and it was amazing!






I am so grateful to be a teacher and especially grateful for all the special people in my life!

Our First Race.

We had our first race of the New Mexico mountain bike series. It was perfect weather and Mike and I were ready to kick some behind. We had been practicing a lot (Mike a lot more than I had been)!
Mike got podium! He won third place out of forty four riders.

I got first in my category. I bumped up to 30-39, since I am turning the big 3-0 this year.

At the finish line.


Mike's favorite part at the end, when he passed the winner of last year's race.


All of the riders!



At the starting line...





We hope to have a great season! Next Race: Socorro.

Ten Reasons Why I Am Being A Slacker At Work...

1. Daylight Savings time is kicking my butt....I can barely function today because of lack of sleep.

2. I am so nervous about this weekend's race. This is a very hard trail and I know I am going to biff it!

3. Spring Break officially starts tomorrow afternoon, therefore why do work?

4. I'm trying to plan out my Spring Break.

5. I'm too busy planning what to do for Mike for his birthday.

6. The kids are watching a video today, so its way easy.

7. I much rather be outside because the weather is GORGEOUS.

8. The only thing I should work on is grading papers and I hate doing that.

9. The other thing I could work on is bills and I hate doing that more than grading papers.

10. Because I don't feel like working. :)

What's Been Going On?

We have been trying to fix the Lexus to sell it to pay off the bills...no luck yet, but we are still working on it.

Matt and Kandi moved to Colorado so we helped them pack up the truck and head off on their new adventure!

We have been preparing for the Coyote Classic on March 21st...lots of people have entered..wish us luck!

Brent got a new bike similar to Mike's..so they are both sporting an Intense!
