Just Add Cheese

Add cheese and it instantaneously makes anything tastier. Its the greatest condiment.

A new setting

I am excited to say that I moved our computer from the spare bedroom into the living room. Now I have no excuses not to blog and do other time wasting internet searches. Tomorrow I have work, ugh, but I can't complain about my 4 glorious days off. I slept, ate a whole bunch of food, watched movies and hung out with my husband and our cats. We're also cat sitting so we hung out with our friends cats Princess and Rutherford. I'm a little scared of Rutherford (he'll scratch or bite you without warning), but he has been pretty friendly. He's smart enough not to bite the hand that feeds him.
Seth and I had one of the smallest gift exchanges. Each of our presents measured an inch by an inch.

I absolutely love my Ipod. Its going to help alleviate the silence at work. So far I've downloaded rap, 90's alternative, country (yes I listen to country) 80's music and some tolerable rock. I've allowed Seth to download some songs. I have room for 240 mp3s, so giving him some room is no problem.
Getting ready to go to Bham for New Years. Very excited. Get to hang out with Seth's old friends. They are pretty cool. But I still have to shop for the fam. What to get the grandparents??? I haven no ideas. Please give suggestions. Last year I got them gardening gloves, a trivet, a sweater for the grandfather and knitting yarn for the grandmother. I'm tapped out.

O.K., so its been a while. But I'm back! Life has been hectic, but in a good way. I've been going through a series of life altering events. First, the most important one. I got married on Nov. 4. to a great guy. I must say I have a wondeful husband. The day couldn't have been more better. It turned out exactly how I imagined it. It was a gorgeous autumn day. The sun was shining and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was 73 degrees with a slight breeze. Here is a picture of me and my bridesmaids. I felt beautiful and all my bridesmaids looked fabulous! I absolutely loved my bouquet. Hand tied mango calla lillies. They were so sophisticated. I absolutely loved them.

Married life is great. I am on cloud nine. I couldn't be happier. It still feels weird to use the term "my husband..." It sounds so grown up. I am definately going to be scrapbooking during the next couple of weeks once I order the professional pictures.
Second, I no longer teach. I currently work at a lab analyzing various types of water collected from specific locations, tanks and wells. Its not a bad job. I might want to try teaching again later. Third, I've registered to run in Greenville News 30th anniversary 5K on Jan. 27th. Its a little nerveracking. But I am definately up for the challenge. This is my first race in eight years. 65 days until the race. I gotta get serious and start my training program. Building endurance, strength and flexibility. I plan on running 4 days a week and doing some turbo kick and calorie killer classes. Its going to be cool to watch my body tranform from flab to fab with kick ass abs. Here's a map of the course. I should run it atleast once. Seth is taking on the challenge with me. I am proud of him. Have I possibly convinced him that running is fun? Doubt it, but I do know he has to a little something to prove to himself since the last 5K.
Today was a good turkey day. I sat around and relaxed, cooked and watched TV. The menu was: Turkey breast, mashed rutabagas, broccoli au gratin and homemade pumpkin pie. We ate dessert with our friends from South Africa. They of course do not celebrate Thanksgiving, so they have never had pumpkin pie. I must say that it was a damn good pumpkin pie. My hats off to seth.
Tomorrow hair cut, mall and flower shop. Yep, I'm venturing out into the chaos of black friday.

2 more weeks

Only 2 more weeks until summer vacation. I knew I had to pick a job that allowed me to be on a school schedule. The thought of only getting 2 weeks of vacation a year depressed me. But believe me teaching is very hard work. It is more exhausting than you think telling kids to be quiet and to pay attention.
I must say I had a wonderful spring break. I slept in until 11 on most days and I was busy with my friends wedding that I was in. I pampered myself last week: getting a pedimani, tanning, a haircut and shopping. The wedding was very simple with no extra frills. Something I would like to have. Her hairstylist did my hair up in a 1/2 french twist. I am Korean so of course I have slick black hair. I tried to tell the stylist to tease and hairspray my hair so she woud have something to work with, but she didnt listen and at the end of the night I pulled out exactly 30 bobbypins.
The groom's 2 brothers decorated the car with an Easter theme. They put fake grass everywhere and filled plastic eggs with condoms. They even put baby powder in the vents of the car. It was a little disappointing when the bride and groom turned on the car and they weren't covered in white, but you could see puffs coming out the windows and the sunroof. I think my friend is very happy and I am excited and happy for her. Congrats Meredith!
After going to my friends wedding I have decided to stay in the country and have my wedding here. Wedding are all about having your family and friends close to you, so since Seths parents could not go to Europe I should decided have it here. It is going to be interesting. The North meeting the South.

Only 3 more days until Spring Break. I think we are all counting down the minutes. But the rest of the week is easy and light: Test on Acid/Bases tomorrow and watching Coach Carter. It's a pretty good movie. I would recommend it for those who like Sameul L. Jackson. Of course he is a bad ass in this movie. He makes his players do 250 push ups during practice and as punishment he made a player do 1500 push-ups and 1200 suicides. Is there a movie where he's not a bad ass? But I suppose the gimp scene in Pulp Fiction would make anyone humble.
I am excited. I ordered two new books off the internet. I haven't really had the chance to read lately, but over spring break I am definately going to catch up. So Seth check the mail today!
Oh, there might be a fraudulant myspace of me floating around. One of my students said he was going to start a myspace about me. I personally don't have a myspace. But I did check it out the other day cause a friend of mine said a girl from my graduating class died, and it was posted on our high school's myspace group. So of course I had to look. Its weird when you hear that someone from high school has died. But I graduated with a big class (650) and so far there have been about 4 or 5 deaths that I know about. But everyone has a myspace! I was amazed by the amount of people who had a page. I knew it was popular, but I never cared enough to check it out. But now here I am blogging. Is this cooler than myspace or just as bad?
Give me a few days and I will make my blog more hospitable, cozy and inviting.

Rainy Monday

Today is a rainy and dreary. I love days like this. Today I should be reading, watching trash TV, napping, cross stitching, cooking and crocheting. Instead I am school with restless kids who are preoccupied with Prom and spring break. I didn't go to any of my proms. I don't feel like I missed out on much. I was going to go Prom this year, but I am throwing a Bachelorette party in Charleston this weekend. But it would have been fun to get all dressed up and go to Prom with Seth. I don't think he went to any of his proms either. They even take teachers pictures for free! I would have to buy the Prom picture frame and hang it on my fridge.

Planning is up. Off to teach neutralization.
