Earlier I posted that we moved the boy out of the dorm into a temporary apartment. While school is out for the summer, sadly he won’t be coming home for a summer break. He has decided to stay in Golden and do his field study requirements over the summer. This 6 week course is normally taken between the sophomore and junior year, but he was allowed in a year early so we were excited when he got in. However, we just found out today that he has been “hired” as an undergraduate intern at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden (usually this is for incoming Seniors)! Now, his field session will be only 2 weeks classroom and the he’ll finish the course while getting actual paid hands on experience. So, he’ll be staying with friends for about 3 weeks and then we’ll go back to help him move into an actual apartment (next door to Coors brewery, so my weekends might be full for awhile 😀). Again, we couldn’t be prouder! We’ll miss him, but greatful for all these wonderful opportunities that he keeps getting. via Facebook

Thinking of quitting my job and becoming an Instagram Model. I hear that’s a real thing. I’m sure I could make millions. #Imtoosexy via Facebook

The boy is home for spring break. I told him he could have whatever he wanted for dinner. He chose baked salmon with mango and steamed broccoli. It was… Ummmm… Different. via Facebook

With the first day of spring two days away. I just packed up all my sweaters and long sleeves for the summer. So, we will probably have blizzard conditions within the next week. You’re welcome. via Facebook

From 7:30 pm Thursday until 7:30 am this morning, I have slept 23.5 hours. I don’t know what this bug I caught is, but I want my lost day back. via Facebook

Just heard the news of the tragic news of the events that occurred today in Colorado Springs. Our good friend recently retired as a Deputy Sgt. of the El Paso Sheriff Department. Through her we have met and hung out with many of the great men and women of the Sheriffs Department and their families. Our thoughts and Prayer’s go out to her and each and every member of the EPSD family during this time of tragedy. via Facebook

Glad to see the Eagles win. Used to be my son’s second favorite team when he was younger, so I was rooting for them the whole time. Well that and I hate the Patriots so there’s that as well. via Facebook

I was stupid and forgot to turn off my alarm clock, so I’ve been awake since 5:30 this morning. It’s now 10:30 and the boy is still sleeping. If he doesn’t get up soon he’ll have to wait until my nap is over before he can open his presents from Santa. via Facebook

IT’S SNOWING! I admit that it is barely a flurry, but snow never the less. Strange, I am usually fairly anti snow, but I’m am inexplicably a little excited to see those itty, bitty flakes of ice. via Facebook
