This churning of my stomach can only mean one thing. Time to close the chapter on another Spring Break and move back to reality. In my new found attempt to live in the positive I've prepared a tribute to Spring Break 2010 in my favorite form, a Top Ten List.
10. NO SCHOOL WORK!
This year I actually took the time to have my plans for next week ready and all my grading done so I didn't have to work at all during the break! What a difference that makes!
9. 4 SUNNY DAYS
No they were not in a row, but it is Oregon in March and I'll take it where it comes.
8. YARD WORK
Yes it is true, I hate yard work. But a sunny day allowed us to make the yard look a little less white trashy. That's always a good thing!
7. NEW PARTY PROPERTY
Great friends finally closed on their new home which might very well be the coolest place on the planet. I'm so happy for them and look forward to summer BBQs!
6. TWO TRAIL RUNS!
One with Brittany and Bailey and two with my exceptionally amazing Sean. Good times!
5. HDTV and DVR
Oh holy crap. This may be the promised land of television. It should be illegal to enjoy TV this much. Wait..maybe it is.
4. A CELEBRATION AND RECRUITMENT
Got together to celebrate The Big Climb with the boot camp girls. Not only were the martini's delicious but we drank enough to get two more people to commit to the dirty 1/2 with us. Love the social lubricant of alcohol!
3. ROAD TRIP!
There could be a top 10 with in the road trip category. First, it's a road trip which guaranties good times. Add in the fun passengers, the amazing hotel, the shared nerves and the trophy donuts and bragging rights and well..'nuff said.
2. SEAN UNINTERRUPTED FOR AN ENTIRE WEEK-
Well, almost uninterrupted. He ditched me to do a 15 mile run yesterday, but other than that we had a dream staycation of couple time!
1. 69 Flights, 1311 Steps, 16:09. THE BIG CLIMB
Really, there is nothing else that could top this list. Columbia Center Tower, I salute you. You were a willing adversary and daunting upon first impression but you deconstruct just like a box of Lego's. Next year...Sub 15!
