I have nothing to say

I am very blah today-- much like the rainy weather and the cold front that has been brought in-- I'm just boring. Usually on Saturdays I get my stuff in gear and clean the house and do really fun things with Jeff. Not so much today. Although I did have a great lunch at Tea Bar and some good Charley's place time with some friends from church...

anyway, I'm ready for school to be done. I like Evangel, then again I don't, and mostly I'm just tired of sitting in classes imagining how I would do the job I have been training to do for a year and a half now. I'm just ready to go ahead and start doing it now instead of just talking about it (or listening to others talk about it more likely). Job interviews should be coming up, but I'm not sure what the competition is or even how many possibilities there are. I'm keepin' it cool, trying to think good thoughts, and get through the rest of this month. I have almost all of May off and I cannot WAIT. Spring gardening, pool visiting, reading outside...

le sigh.

Picture Post-DC Trip

So, I was pretty quick to update photos on my facebook of the Washington DC trip, but not so good about putting them on here. I just wanted to choose a few of my favorites to post. :-)

As for how things are going this week: very well! The sun is shining and the weather is GOREGOUS! I just skipped out of my assistantship to (try to) run in my neighborhood. I am freakin' nutts about Spring! This weekend I will plant some cool weather veggies in the garden and mow the yard for the first time. YESSS!

Films you must see!

So, two films from the True False Film festival my husband and I attended last week that you MUST see are No Impact Man and Food Inc.

The first is about a guy and his family who go "No-Impact" on the environment for a whole year in New York City. It was great. I actually sat across the isle from the guy himself and got to watch his reactions to the film-- hillarious. He has a blog he keeps updated that you can go to by clicking on the flim above. I also added his blog to my blog roll.

The second, Food Inc., is about our food industry and how we get our food. A couple of facts: Did you know that 1 in 3 of all people born after the year 2000 will develop Type II Diabetes? Did you know that the average distance our food travels to get to us is about 1500 miles? The biggest thing I took away from the film is just how bad our meat industry is... I am trying (and have done so quite successfully, even while on vacation!) to only eat locally-grown and/or responsibly raised meat from now on. Its atrocious what we do to the animals we eat in this country, not to mention the workers in the factories of the meat companies.

So, now that I am all primed to go-green(er) I want to share info about a farm that does organic farming really close to Springfield-- Millsap Farms. I emailed them today to see when/if I can pick up some meat--they butcher chickens, turkeys, pigs, etc. :-) Also, I plan to frequent the Greater Springfield Farmer's Market once the season begins next month. Sigh.

Did I mention I went to DC last week? More on that later...

Hello from DC!

Greetings from Washington! I don't want to take too much time to write, b/c I'll post pics later, but I am in DC with Jeff and some friends, Joe and Jannah Swink. We are having a lovely time. We have ran into our share of great politicians, seen some incredible sights, laughed our butts off, and have talked constantly in fake-British old women accents. Okay, so now I am watching Kathie Lee and Hoda's Today show segment, and I want to puke. SNL had it right when they did the parody of this show...
