Spring Has Officially Sprung!

Signs I Know That Spring Is Here:
7.  My students have checked out.  For some reason they think it's May 20th already...I am giving a practice state test today and a girl asked me (completely serious) "Do I have to do this?" yes, you do.  And you must try.  I haven't resorted to begging yet, but I believe that's next.
6.  The skirts are getting shorter.  Enough said
5.  I would sooooo much rather be outside than at my desk.
4.  Farmer's Markets have opened...Yippee!!
3.  My skin has a little color, as opposed to the ghost white sleeves I've been sporting since September
2.  New couples have emerged at school.  It's funny, because around March all the winter couples break up and new couples form just in time for prom.  The freshman girls are salivating right now...

And the #1 reason I know spring is here...
1.  I literally must sweep the house EVERY DAY in order to control the massive amounts of dog hair that has been shed over the past few weeks.  Is there business in wigs for dogs?? If so, I think I've hit a goldmine

An Affair To Remember

I'm having an affair.  Every morning I wake up at 4:45 and sneak quietly out of bed.  I put on the special clothes that I set out the night before, and I quietly leave my house (can't wake the hubby, hello!)  I walk down the road and spend one glorious hour with my man, Shawn T.  He makes me sweat, and moan, and groan... Ok, you may now remove your mind from the gutter :) I march my happy butt down the road, not for pleasure, but for pain.  Serious pain...but I feel AMAZING afterwards!  Shawn T and I have a love/hate relationship.  He makes me workout really hard, and I hate him for that, but I'm hoping to love the results.  I was in pretty good shape before, so I'm not dying, but I need to tone back up like last summer.  And quick!  I definitely do better with the peer pressure of a group, so I'm hoping to stick with this :) I'll let you know how it goes!
