Spring Break!

I know I've been m.i.a. for a little while here… The past two weeks I have been giving midterm exams and helping my students with a variety of projects.

But today I gave my last exam, got through my staff meeting, submitted my midterm grades, and I am ready for SPRING BREAK!

As I mentioned before, Ted and I are headed to a warm, sunny destination, which I cannot identify on the blog at this time. One of our friends that we're traveling with has no idea where we're going, so I don't want to ruin the surprise. Don't worry, I'll tell you all about it when I get back. :)

Fun and sun, here we come!

Today I am tying up loose ends, like buying sunblock and bug spray, dropping the 'kids' off at the kennel, and asking the post office to hold our mail.

Speaking of the kids, here's the latest update:

Minnie LOVES the heat vent. We had baseboard heating in our condo in Boulder, so she is entranced whenever hot air starts blowing out of the floor. She is that cat that will sleep on top of the vent, stealing all the heat for herself.

Here she is, kindly sharing some heat with the rest of us.

Milo is SO happy that the sun is out and the snow has melted (although the temps haven't exactly warmed up). He has gone wild with cabin fever these past two months. Now that he's able to spend more time outside, though, he's a little more likely to kick back on a cloudy day.

Here he is chillaxin' like a champ and showing off his 'mowed' underbelly.

I'm sure I'll have a lot to write about when we come back from vacation. Until then, ta-ta!


  1. I am jealous already...I'm off to Bend for the week, where it is supposed to rain.


  2. Have a fun trip! Take lots of pics!
