5.8 miles, 109 calories

Sure felt like I should have burned a whole lot more than that!! So, before Dave left he set up this bike in our living room. Yes, I think it is tacky but it was in the garage and there is not a t.v. in the garage to help me pass the time away while riding....so we moved it. This is the first time I have tried it out. I only biked for 30 minutes and I am not really sweaty so I don't think it was really worth it. BUT it was more than I would have done if it was in the garage!

I also went back to school today to get things organized. My kids come back on Monday! My friends, Guadalupe and Melissa, helped me rearrange my entire room and I am really liking it. I have more floor space now and I got a projector that I am excited to hook up in the middle of the room!! For those of you who do not know, I have an interesting mix of kiddos this year. I am teaching in a public, Montessori, charter school. YES--that is a mouthful!! I teach 11-5th graders, 12-6th graders, and 1-8th grader. Yes, please say it....HOLY CRAP!!! I LOVE teaching but I am having to retrain this year. I am a middle school math teacher (that is what I claim) but I am teaching elementary ALL subjects!!! I have SO much respect for elementary school teachers.

Will you ever go back? By the way, I need to pick your brain about digital cameras. I want a Canon and one that I can really get into and keep forever. In research, I am trying to understand the difference between the 50D, 5D, 7D, etc---it's too much!!!
