Day 1

So this whole blogging thing has been non-existent for me lately. Just haven't been up for it. Haven't been up for a lot of things lately that I need and want to do. But I guess it's time to get out of this fog or at least attempt. I'm going to attempt a 30 day blog challenge maybe that will push me out of this blogging funk. As it has to do with pictures, I'm not too concerned with it because I am a girl obsessed with pictures. I absolutely love them. So I'm getting a bit of a late start but better late than never. So Day 1 my facebook profile picture. (BTW thanks Leslie for the idea! I love it!)

This was taken by me on 4th of July as J.R. and I were messing around in the backyard. It turned out really great so it's now my profile picture. :)


  1. So I just clicked on your blog from mine, wondering why you hadn't blogged in forever. Turns out I hadn't seen any of your more recent posts, including these picture challenge ones! So weird, because I know you're in my google reader. I love technology. ;) Sorry I wasn't able to comment on your picture challenge sooner! This is a great pic of you, btw. :)

  2. Not a problem. I wondered where you were but figured you must be busy with your two little guys. I haven't been blogging as much as I'd like. Hoping can get back into the swing of things soon.

I'd love to hear what you have to say! Otherwise, I feel like I'm talking to a wall, much like I do with my students. :)

Weekend in San Diego

I was looking forward to this past weekend for a number of reasons and a number of weeks. First, it marked the beginning of my Spring Break. I cannot tell you how much of a needed break this is. To start the break off right, J.R. and I packed up our bikes (and some clothes) and headed down to San Diego for the weekend.

Saturday J.R. arranged for us to ride with a former coworker of his. We knew he is quite a bit slower than we are, but we simply wanted a nice, relaxing ride. What we did not know was that this would be the worst.ride.ever.
I want to preface things by saying I know things could have been far worse. I, also, know that if this was my worst ride, I should consider myself lucky. However, all that does not change how horribly catastrophic this ride turned out.
Problem #1 should have become very readily apparent the minute we started. J.R.’s former coworker chose the route. This man is not a very experienced rider, because of this he shys away from the road. That’s fine, however…

Surprises: The Good and the Bad

Solving Life's Questions

Today's prompt was:

If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Now that is a difficult question. So often we put so much of who we are into the job we do. I am no exception. Much of my sense of being, of who I am rests in my career. I believe much of this has to do with my chosen profession. Teaching is definitely not for the faint of heart. 

However, I also believe this has to do with the fact that I feel this is more of a calling. It is what I was created to do. This makes my job an essential part of who I am.

It is no wonder when I lost my job a few years ago, I was seriously tested. The lack of income was a struggle and hardship. However, my ego and my self-esteem took a major hit as the years came and left leaving me unable to find a teaching job. It was then I was first met with the question of if I'm not teaching, then who am I.

I came to this conclusion, I am still a teacher. Even without a classroom to prepare les…
