I have abandoned my little blog lately. I'm sure you all noticed, right? (Crickets) It's actually crazy that I haven't written because I have so much going on that would provide plenty of material. I've been busy starting my new job; I gave up my teaching career to start a new chapter in the work world. I am very fortunate to have found a new career that allows me to use what I know about schools and education in a whole new way. I am working with a publisher of children's books on the digital side. In a nutshell, I work with schools to develop a custom professional development plan that will allow them to implement their new library of over 2500 digital books. I am really busy and have lots to learn but I have been loving every minute of it. I had the opportunity to travel to San Diego for a technology conference a couple of weeks ago. Have you been to San Diego? It was my first time and I have to tell you it was A-MA-ZING. First and foremost let's talk about the weather. It was sunny and in the upper 70's or low 80's every day; I'll take that over this Oklahoma heat wave any day! I had no idea there was so much to do in San Diego. My husband came to meet me after the conference was over and we stayed through the weekend. We drove to Carlsbad which was the cutest little beach town. Then to La Jolla where we walked along the beach and got to see the sea lions, so cute! Then we drove to Del Mar for dinner and enjoyed a beautiful beach sunset while we ate. On the way back to our hotel we stopped in Old Town. It was like a short trip to Mexico! Too bad we were stuffed silly from our dinner, there were so many restaurants and Mexican is one of our favorites. We had planned to go back for dinner the next night, but didn't make it...that's another story for another day. We were fortunate to make it over to Coronado Island for a day of shopping and sight seeing. The Hotel Del was just one of the most amazing places I've seen. It's full of history and so picturesque. The pictures we took just don't do it justice. We zipped through Little Italy one day where they had the cutest little grocery stores and fun little shops. We had pizza and gelato while visiting, when in
Rome Little Italy...
The sea lions in La Jolla, really cute, but really stinky too!
