Great Vaca…

This has been a super busy and fun spring break so far. Road trip one was to Angel Fire, NM. Driving to NM on Friday afternoon was a very long drive. Tulsa to Oklahoma city and then to Amarillo and onto Angel Fire. A 9 hour drive, of course we drove straight through. As my dad would say “we don’t let any grass grow under our feet.”
For the last week of the snow season in New Mexico, there was good snow on the mountain and more snow falling the entire time we were there.
I love snow skiing. I am going to have to try snow boarding the next time we go.

I think there about 8 restaurants in Angel Fire. I think we found the good ones. My favorite was the Roasted Clove. This was the best meal we had the entire time we were there. Monday night is their burger night. Filet migion, ground sirloin steak, guacamole, carmelized onions, well apparently I could just go on and on about this meal. They make their own spicy vinegarêtre, which might have been the best dressing that I have ever eaten.

It was sad yesterday when we left to come back to Oklahoma. It was snowing. This snow was the most beautiful snow I have ever seen. We got to use the four wheel drive in the new pickup.

I like it that 8 inches of snow doesn’t shut down communities in New Mexico and Colorado.

Success

Day one of snow skiing was successful.

We went to the top of the mountain and the backside of the mountain.

I can probably count on one, maybe two hands how many times I fell down. Mike didn’t fall, not even once.

I even successfully made it down a BLUE slope.

This has been a great trip so far and we still have three days! We are both tired and trying to prevent ourselves from being sore. I don’t know if my legs have gotten this much of a workout in quite some time.
Couples getaways are the greatest.

Reframe

Spring Break is 9 days away!
I am not sure how much of a break it will be except for having to sit in class. It appears it might be time to get caught up.
In the first 8 weeks of school we will have had 11 test if you include that lab portions of the test we have had, which boils down into actually we have only had 7 weeks of school and three weeks of nothing but test.

When we come back from Spring break there are only 7 weeks of school left and 6 test in those 7 weeks. Then finals week.

64 days of class left
7 days of finals
It has to get better right? We shall see!
