My spring "break"

My kids were away for most of Spring Break (Moab with the grandparents), so I had time on my hands.  Hayden and I have a different version of what a break looks like.  His includes taking naps and watching a movie he's been wanting to see. 
This is what mine included this week:
Rake garden
Stair climber workout
Rake yard
Mow yard
Fertilize lawn
Plant spring flowers
Till garden (until my tiller rebelled)
Plant three rows of spring seeds
Treadmill class
Twelve miler with Arica
Walk Provo trail with Lawrence
Bathroom cleaned
Three doctor appointments
Grocery shopping
Edge lawn
Email parents/students about homework
Email Brenden (while running)
Birthday cards for April
Einsteins with Becky
Plan two weeks for school
Dig out perennials from vacant lot
Make math quiz
Haydens meeting
Spray round up on entire empty garden spot
Plant perennials
Fixed broken pipes in yard
Buy garden seeds
Go to wades tennis match
Had TV guy come to fix broken receiver
Spent two days (5+ hours) in the yard
Got text from Brendens mission president
A million other little errands
I missed the kids, but glad I got stuff done.
Bad part... I am having trouble walking today. So sore.

Basketball time again

Once again, it's that time of year when students brag about their skills, and teachers just pray they don't embarrass themselves. I've learned the hard way to keep my mouth shut when it comes to talking smack before the game. Usually when i talk a lot is when I play the worst.

This year I had ten points, a couple steals and a nice jammed finger... Which has now taken on a nice purple shade.

The best part of the game... Knowing that the minute it was over - spring break began!
