Recent Times Defined

M.I.A. - the only way to describe me and the blog world recently.

Vortex - what the Starbucks on Las Trampas and facebook chat feels like.

Pink - the color all teachers are supposed to wear tomorrow in support of those whose jobs are affected by the state budget crisis.

Released - what the school district calls my lay-off.

Heath and Kate - my two favorite Oscar winners. I love the anticipation of what Kate will do next and miss what Heath could have been.

Nebulous - what my future looks like.

Saturday - a day I've looked forward to for a long time.

Portland - where Ryan was recently called to serve and where my dad served nearly thirty years ago.

40 degrees - the temperature of my pool when my friends and I decided to jump in last Friday.

Baked Potato Soup - the taste of friendship this past week as Rachel has continued to be an anchor and a constant source of entertaining distraction.

Saddle Rack - a place everyone should go to at least once. Who thought country dancing could look like that?!

Clever Sign-off - something I cannot come up with at this particular moment. Good night!

Oh, Jaclyn, I came to ask the same question the others are. I hear California is just being hit the hardest with the times. The company I'm working for has been very affected too. All the best and much love!

Ah yes-the infamous "pink slip". I too am anticipating mine this week. What a world! What a state! CRUD. Good luck on your district's plan of action. Hopefully you too can be spared.
