Mr. Jonny Lang!

The 1st week of school is going well so far. (knock on wood). The first day of school went pleasantly well with no major issues, and I was surprised to see the second day go just as well. Today I think the honeymoon is over. A few students were very tired today and some behaviors have come about. I am hoping tomorrow goes better.

I was able to get in three early morning workouts ... monday, tuesday, and today. I think I am getting into a good "morning" schedule and doing some lifting regularly as well. Ask me if I will still be into the "morning" routine when the temps begin to drop. It is already cool in the morning, about 50 degrees this week.

Tuesday after school I did some house hunting with my realtor again. I am not going to say too much about it as I am afraid I will jinx it, but it went well. From there I rushed to my girfriend's place, changed out of my teacher clothes and we were off to dinner downtown. It was great to grab a bite to eat and catch up with her!....and then it was time.... time for the concert!

THE concert.

THE Mr. Jonny Lang!

We have seen him in concert before ... about 7 years ago .. but we just couldn't pass up the opportunity to see him perform in his hometown!

Here is a video clip. I had a few others, but this was the best one. This is a snipit of the song Red Light.



Here is another video, from the same concert. I wasn't able to get the whole song, but found this on youtube. This is one of my FAVORITE songs! This is a long version, but I highly recommend listening!




Ahh, it was so much fun!

That pic is cute! Your hair looks so gorgeous!

I have GOT to get in the early morning workout routine under my belt. It would be so nice to have my workout (or at least 1 of them) done and over with.

Just stumbled upon your blog, enjoyed it! :) I'm a runner too, and used to teach 2nd grade.

Keep up the great job with the workouts! Hope the school year is a good one for you.

Congrats on your early morning workouts!

And... looks like a fab time last night. It's funny to me, looking back, how weird I thought it was when I would see one of my teachers out and about. As if they shouldn't/didn't have a life outside of the classroom. hahahaha
