Buzzing Along

I've been busy as a bee the past few days - even with the holiday, the week still seems to last forever. For example, for some reason I felt like today was Thursday . . .

I still haven't heard if my doctor has received the results of the tests I had last Wednesday it's supposed to be in 3 to 5 business days, but with the snow and all I'm sure that schedule is out of whack. It is making me very anxious, but I am trying to focus on the many tasks I have at hand . . .

I've been able to come home early most days, and lose myself in mindless TV for a few hours. Hello, TRL! Sometimes watching MTV makes me feel so old though . . .

I've also started watching reruns of the Gilmore Girls and I am totally hooked. That IS a great show, although I've heard that this year's season isn't as great since the creators aren't writing for it anymore. Now I'll have to get all of the back seasons on DVD at some point . . .

My ESL class last night went OK. We had missed a week because of the snow and ice, so it was a bit of a time getting everyone up to speed, and quite a few people were absent. I really liked my lesson plan for this week - it was on food measurements and how to read recipes. I had a bunch of old recipe cards that my grandma collected from random mailings and it was a great activity to end the class with - have everyone take a card and talk about what recipe they had. What were the ingredients? The cooking times? How many people do they serve? Does in cook on the oven or on the stove?

Over the holiday, my friend, J, and I went to the Einstein Planetarium at the Air and Space Museum. I didn't even know they had a planetarium, the place is so big! We also went to the newly reopened National Portrait Gallery. I could have stayed there for hours, but it had been a long and tiring day, and quite a long hike back to the car which was parked near the Air and Space Museum.

Tonight, Mr. Random and I are going to our very first Hockey game - so exciting! I hope to give a full report tomorrow and if I am lucky I might be able to take a few pictures. Supposedly our seats are right behind the glass behind the goalie, so at least we won't have to worry about getting hit by a puck! However, I don't think Olie Kolzig, the Capitals goalie, will be back from injury yet which will be a bummer, but hopefully I'll get to see a lot of the other players. Yay! Go Caps!

Just wanted to give everyone an update - I hope you all are having a great week!

I love the Smithsonian museums. All of them. One summer I babysat three of my sibs and part of my job was to take them into DC once or twice each week. We did a lot of hanging out at the various museums and even got a personal kid-oriented tour at the East WIng from a kind guard.

Yes, the Smithsonian is so awesome - I feel so lucky to be able to go anytime I want to. That's what makes living up here so worthwhile . . .
