Time just seems to fly

I can't believe that March is over already. The school year has flown by and I know the next month and a half will fly by too. There is just so much to do before the school year ends. We still have 3 performances left, the area band festival, the spring concert, and sonic boom. On top of that my parents are coming to town for the spring concert. It's the first time they've every seen a performance with me as the conductor. Having all of my teaching jobs in Alaska, it's been difficult for them to see the performances live. It'll be fun to have them there.
In other news...two weeks ago my furnace went out. It was quite the adventure to have it fixed but thankfully we were only without the furnace for a few days. Saturday is not the best day of the week to have the furnace go out. Thank goodness for space heaters and lots of blankets.
We got a little bit of snow last night/this morning. It's not a lot but it's a change from the great weather we've had for several days now.
Time to get ready for work.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

It has brought snow. I looked out the door this morning after Bryan had made a comment about it snowing while he was tying his shoes. Yep, it's snowing. I guess that means I need to break out the snow shovel again. It's not a lot of snow so it'll be easy to shovel.
Well I know it's been a little bit since I wrote on my blog (I'm sorry). Spring break came and went. I still got up early and went to bed (for the most part) when I usually do. I finished my bathroom project. It looks good. (I still need to figure out why the tub is draining slowly though). I'm glad to have it done. Sadly I didn't accomplish too much else over break. I did manage to get out of town for a couple of hours driving down to the peninsula with Seth (Maz was in NY and Bryan was at work). Of course we did our driving while the paint was drying.
There are still boxes in my kitchen that need to be unpacked but first I need to find a place to put them. I guess that's one of the problems when you take two people who have lived on their own for several years and both enjoy cooking, and then put them in one kitchen. We have a lot of baking pans. I'm not complaining, I guess I'll just have to do some more baking. Those are a little less hard to find places for than the additional box of canned goods. I also need to figure out where we are going to put the other Kitchen Aid.
In more exciting news, I got Blue Man Group tickets for when they come to Anchorage in May. I got them in the mail on Tuesday. :) It'll be fun to see them.
Work is work. I'm preparing students for several more performances. We have area festival in April, along with our spring concert, and then Sonic Boom in May. We have just over 9 weeks of school left and we have testing starting at the end of the month. I have a feeling this quarter will fly by. There is still a lot to do before the performances. It should be great though.
I'm looking at finding summer work just so that I can be money ahead. I'm thinking that maybe I'll drive a bus. We'll see. I also need to finish my things for grad school, geez I haven't worked enough on that.
Well it's that magical time where I need to get ready for work and shovel my driveway.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Lots of stuff and not enough sleep

As I sit on my couch, I see a pile of boxes. I'm not complaining about the pile of boxes, it just means I really do have a roommate and I'm not imagining it. This weekend was spent moving stuff and I haven't really recovered. Of course I have been tired for longer than that. I really just need more sleep. I've tried but my seems to think that 5AM is a wonderful time to wake me up regardless of when I went to bed. Of course last night I fell asleep on the couch for a little bit.
In other news. Spring break starts this week but it feels like this week is going to drag. Last night I thought it was Tuesday. I think it's the being tired. I have so much to do too. But thankfully next week I can do my stuff and get some sleep.
If I could actually get my brain to work then I'm sure I'd have more to put on here but right now it's not working.
Till next time.
