My Husband Rocks! ~ GPA

This post was meant for last week. However, work has been crazy with school speeding ever faster towards an end. One evening at work I overheard a discussion regarding our planning guides. These are little pieces of paper that we mark off which courses a student has completed. This allows us to see where they stand and which classes they still need to complete.

Through the course of this discussion, I mentioned I was thinking of creating a spreadsheet with all the same information that automatically totaled the number of credits a student had, as well as, showing what GPA a student earned. My principal was thrilled. I told him it would take me some time as I had other tasks to complete before I started this project but I would get on it asap.

A few days later I decided to try my hand at figuring out the formulas to calculate the GPA. I got stuck. I couldn't figure out exactly how to go about this. I then let J.R. know of my dilemma. Not only did he help me out with a formula, he took over the whole project, completed it and sent it back to me done. I now have a wonderful spreadsheet that calculates how many credits my students have, how many they need to graduate, their GPA and as an added bonus (I didn't ask for this feature) J.R. put in a formula that tells you what grade the student would be in based on credits. Genius!

So this week (or rather last week) my husband rocks for helping me out with this project. He rocks for taking time out of his own work to help me with this and make my job so much easier.

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…

Wait! I Can't What??

Monday is my rest day. After work, J.R. and I took a walk to the park, then to the store. I loaded up on a ton of fruit. I'm very excited about all the options I now have sitting in my fridge. Peaches, nectarines, grapes, strawberries, blackberries and apples. Oh my! I'm contemplating a wonderful smoothie for later.

Tuesday morning I was up and swinging away. This particular workout called for 135 squats and 270 swings on top of the normal 120 swing warm up. There were other moves involved but I was exhausted by the amount of leg work today. But it's good for me.

Tuesday was also my doctor's visit. Well, I wasn't pleased to say the least. I almost feel like it was a waste of time. But I am getting some much needed blood work done so I'm ok with it. I was basically told my knee needed rest. Yep. I figured that. That's what I've been doing. (Though I'm sure all those squats and swings didn't help matters this morning.) I was told to take a regimen…

Lazy Days

Saturday J.R. and I were lazy. It was nice. We eventually crawled out of bed and decided it wasn't too late for a ride. The ride we originally planned for the day goes through some less than safe roads. I was ok with riding these roads early in the morning with no traffic. I wasn't about to attempt them later in the day.

So we made our way to the trusty trail. We did a nice easy 23 mile out and back ride. It was a beautiful day. We were a bit concerned about the wind. However, it turned out to not effect us as much as we thought.

After, we did a little shopping. A few weeks ago I read Too Cute Runner's review of the Reebok 7" shorts and I simply had to buy some myself to try out.

My legs are huge. Granted they are no where near the size there were before. (I lost over 10 inches in one thigh alone!) However, they are still large. They are very muscular and I'm thankful for it. I've come to accept my tree trunks. :)

Because of my larger legs, running shorts don&…
