Summer 2

This week was busy but much less stressful than last week.

Saturday I went to the Little Mermaid with work friends to help celebrate a co-workers birthday.  We met at Hard Rock Cafe for lunch and then headed over to the show.  Little Mermaid is not my favorite of the Disney movies, but I always love a musical and I particularly enjoyed the way TUTS portrayed the underwater swimming.

Sunday Mr. Boyfriend and I threw our bikes in his truck and drove over to Bayshore Park in Bacliff and rode our bikes around the neighborhood streets.  I love riding my bike and I could really feel it that evening.

Starting Monday was a three day conference going over the Charms Office system.  Charms is used for music program management (among other things).  I’ve been using it for a few years, but not to its fullest potential.  They have a yearly conference and since it was in Houston I was able to go with help from my school district.  I am so glad that I went.  I feel like I have a better handle on the financial section and got many ideas from other attendance conferees.  So that I didn’t have to drive an hour and a half one way for three days I got a hotel room on Tuesday night, the night of their evening event.  

I stayed in a Candlewood Suites.  Even though I was just there for one night,  I was very impressed with all the amenities of an extended stay hotel.  Full size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, two burner stove, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, free laundry service and so on.  House cleaning is just once a week, but you can pay extra for more service.  

The rest of Wednesday and all of Thursday, I have enjoyed being lazy which is so easy with the wonderful rain we’ve had the last few days.  I’ve also started two new apps to help track my food and exercise.  Onward to week 3!
