Has it really been two months since my last post?

A lot has happened since my last post...hmmm, how to go about filling in two months of activity. Here goes: I got laid off at the end of March, and have not been back to work yet, so if you read this and you're hiring, call me. Unemployment sucks! I turned 33 May 4th. I seem to get these crazy gray hairs right on my sideburns. Both sides. May be time to ditch the burns. We pulled Tami out of traditional public school in January. She started Virtual Academy and is doing great! She is learning so much with this system, which is kinda online, kinda homeschool. She does have a teacher, Mrs Brown that she sees every now and again for progress conferences and assessments. Tami is learning things that I dont think I learned about until I was in Jr. High! She can talk to you about DaVinci, Picasso, the Trojan War, you name it, she's so smart. I'm amazed at how much she is learning and retaining! Guaci is her "Coach" which means she guides Tami through all of her lessons and helps her with her homework etc. Guaci is doing an awesome job. Even Arianna participates in some of the lessons and is learning as well. She loves to do the science projects and art. I started to run a lot recently and was planning on doing my first ultra marathon which was going to be the "Running with the Devil" 50 miler at the end of June, but doe to some circumstances beyond my control, I will not be participating. I do look forward to the E.T. Full Moon Midnight 51K in August which is a thirty one mile race starting at midnight that goes along the "Extraterrestrial Highway". This is near area 51 and there have been several supposed UFO sightings. The runners wear neon glownecklaces because it starts at midnight. My parents came to visit last weekend. They were here for a few hours only though. They were passing through on their way back from a family reunion in Utah. We went to lunch at one of my favorite mexican restaurants here in Vegas, called Lindo Michoacan. It was nice to see them. When they left though, Arianna got mad. "You just got here!" she yelled. They had to get back to California though, but we hope to see them again soon. Today I went and spoke to a counselor at CSN to see how many more classes I need until I can transfer to UNLV. My major is Hospitality Management and I've been slowly plugging along for a long time but I came to the decision that I need to stop plugging along and really tighten the belt to get it done. I was happy to find out that I may be able to transfer to UNLV by this time next year with an AA in Hospitality Mgmt as well as a General AA degree. I will enter UNLV as a junior. I'm going to check into also getting degrees in Spanish and International business. My dream job would be to work for an international hotel chain like Hilton or Marriott and work for them in Spain.
