shirtless summer around the corner...

high and tight...

no new positions for faculty at my school...ahh well. was fun to dream. Now I'm kind of wondering if the public school from the interview a few weeks ago is ever going to call. they said they'd let me know in a few weeks.. ok it's been a few! meanwhile I'm going to consider applying for a middle school math position here in OKC. If nothing else for the experience of interviewing. can't hurt.
I start back at the water fun park this weekend, and then the next few weekends until it's open everyday beginning memorial weekend all summer. I'll also be teaching a summer class starting June to end of July on Tue and Thurs am this summer.
so that's my summer in a nutshell...once I get hired back somewhere fulltime I feel like I'll be able to breathe again. right now it sucks going carefully through each paycheck...ugh. ahh well I am thankful to have the jobs in the first place, plenty without right now.
I'm calling DODEA about military schools overseas today. you just never know what might be out there as far teaching jobs etc... I'm ceritified in both Math and ENglish so that helps my options somewhat hopefully. ALthough to be honest I'm pretty much settled right back into living in OKC for a while.
I'm taking it easy at the gym this week after I was making up my Chest day on Tuesday. I was doing chest flies with barbells. I don't lay flat but I'll lay back on the incline bench as low as it goes so I'm up about 30 degrees or so and then do flies. well anyway, during a rep as I was going back down with the weight on the right, i sort of went back more than out suddenly and got this awful pain in my shoulder.... it was painful whenever I had my arm at a certain angle etc.. anyway, so I went directly home without finishing off with incline barbell press, shoulder hurt. came home and applied ICE pack to shoulder unti lall the ice was melted, then that was that. yesterday I walked or ran on the treadmill for about 45 minutes instead of leg day, and then today plan to run more and do abs, but I want to lay off anything until the shoulder is 100%. I'll try some pullups today and see if there is any pain. Off all day today, getting things done around my place and outside. really cold in OKC today since thunderstorms ripped through last night. GOt a real nice haircut after lunch today. "high and tight", my basic instructions were almost zero on the sides and back, then fade it into the top, cut the top really short but where it will still lay down. Oh yeah and this guy does the razor around the hairline which I like. ready for summer, bring it on...

no gym day...

tornado season is officially here in OKC.... finally arrived today. I was driving home from work and hearing all the news of weather, got home to a dark cloudy sky gusty winds etc... thought I'd go ahead and change for the gym before the rain hit, but then got a phone from my lil sister who was in town today and on her way back to my mom's and about then the sirens start going off. she was a few miles east of me on the road w/ traffic stopped up. I was on my porch talking to here and looking to the west at all the clouds rotating and winds blowing while all the sirens went off north and south of my neighborhood, but the tornado at that point was about 10 miles west heading NE so we knew she was fine.(yup I completely blame my farm-raised dad for having the first instinct of walking out to the porch or driveway and looking up when the tornado sirens go off. ha) She came by to wait out the rain instead of driving through it to my folks west of the city . anyway, she brought a new Beagle puppy inside that she was picking up here in the city to take home to her kids. I got to play with the puppy, and we chatted while watching the storms go crazy on the news. They TORE UP some homes and cars and moblie trailor parks all over down south of norman and up towards shawnee out west of okc.. whoosh! I like that my sister said I looked "big" but that might just be the gym shirt I was wearing. ha then we talked about each other gaining weight and showing each other's waistlines! ha. My little sis and I are probably closest 'cause we fought the most growing up. plus we are the two youngest... so no gym today, and no muscle stud police force dude that looks like the Rock, but I found out that he's actually half Mexican/Irish. loving that mix.... tomorrow I'll have to double up chest day and tri's. btw, readers, I'm not huge at all, I constantly work out to keep from shrinking !ha but I am staying in shape from what I gained while overseas a while back.
