The sun is shining...

on my street! It looks like spring outside. So the spousal unit and I took advantage of it and hit the bricks for about 2.5 miles today. It was chilly to start and he didn't think he was going to be able to go very far, but he surprised me (and himself!) He said that if he had been alone, he wouldn't have gone as far, but he didn't want me to think he was a total skirt. His words.

In any case, it was a gorgeous day for it and it felt great to get out and run.

School starts again tonight and I'm looking forward to it. I just really needed a break from thinking and worrying about school for a few days, and now I'm ready to start a new quarter. New class, new professor. I've gotten over my disappointment (for the most part) that I did the math wrong adding up my credits and I won't be graduating in a year like I thought, but there are worse fates in life. So I don't feel too bad about taking it easy this quarter and next, only one class per quarter. I'll get back at it in the fall and take more but I am ready to take it easy for awhile. I'm getting closer to graduating and I'm not totally taking the quarter off, so it's all good.

Nothing much exciting or interesting to talk about, just life. Oh, a funny thing happened today. Middle man-cub's homework got lost yesterday afternoon and he was quite upset this morning when we couldn't find it. We promised to bring it to school when it turned up. I asked one my favorite saints for a little help, and St Anthony (patron saint of lost things) came through like he always does. After our run today, the husband and I were trying to figure out what could have happened to the homework. Coming up the driveway, and seeing the empty garbage cans gave me a thought and I checked the recycle bin....they hadn't come to pick it up yet. Sure enough, in between sections of the Sunday paper was his bright blue "homework" folder with the assignment tucked inside. Thanks, St A!

I guess that about covers it for today. Not much going on in suburbia today, but I do have to give a quick shout out to my beloved UNC TAR HEELS who rocked the house last night, even though Yahoo is making fun of one of them for a bad dunk attempt. They're going to take it all this year, I just know it.

Tar Heels? Well...I am not following the tourney now that my buckeyes lost out (pitiful)...but never thought of ya as a Tar Heel fan?? LOL. Hope you have a great week.

I am a die hard Tar Heels fan. I have family ties to Chapel Hill and my grandfather on my dad's side coached football and basketball there many MANY years ago :) Back in the late 1940's.

You have a great week too, Jenn! The sun is shining and spring looks like it's here :)

That's very cool to have a history connection there. I considered going to UNC at Chapel Hill when I was in high school...I visited the campus and all but OSU kinda had my number...lol.

Yes...the sun is shining!! Only wish I wasn't stressed out so I could enjoy the day. LOL.
