Mount up Monday – The Ole! edition

Happy Monday morning, Voxiverse!  (Or feliz manana de lunes, I think)

Not only is it Cinco de Mayo (not Mexican Independence Day), but it's a Mount up Monday.  That's right, get on your horses and ride!

I wish to the heavens that I was off today, enjoying margaritas and basically getting sloppy falling down drunk with the rest of the revelers, but alas, I have bills to pay so I'm at work.  I will have to settle for mango margaritas when we get home. (Made with fresh mangos off the tree in the back yard, deee-licious!)

Speaking of mangos, our tree is exploding with those bad boys so it will be time soon for my mango-cheesecake delight.  So tasty.

The weekend was as good as a weekend could be.  Tons of fun on Friday night watching the Marlins knock around the Padres.  Most of Saturday was spent catching up on homework.  I've really got to try to plan better so I don't end up doing that.  Much more interesting things to be done on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.  Sunday was errand day and more homework.

I can't even begin to put into words the way the time is just flying by.  I honestly used to dread Mondays, but now I actually look forward to them because it means I'm one week closer to gettin that paper.  I started looking into Microsoft certifications and nearly swallowed my tongue when I found out how expensive the classes are.  And it isn't like there's just one class.  I'm just guessing here, but I think it would cost me another 10 grand to get two certifications, and that could very well be an underestimate.  Yikes!  Oh well, one step at a time.  I'm trying to self-teach myself PHP since I do know a little about it.  I've got this 200 page tutorial to get through.  After that, SQL.  The fun never ends.

Maybe I'll give myself some goals for the week on MUM.  Here's this week:

  • Finish homework before Friday
  • Stretch for at least an hour daily (pole class in one week!)
  • Read 20 pages of the tutorial

Yeah, that's enough.  I'll start small.

Well, I hope that you all pasen un buen dia.  Hasta luego…..

  1. Keep on plugging away at it, you'll get it!
    I will have one for you, but it may get cut to half a one depending on how many people need me to have one for them, lol. It's a school night and I'm not the drinker I used to be. 🙂

  2. I hear ya, at least have a sip for me!
    yeah, I am determined to learn Spanish (even though I don't live in such a heavily populated Hispanic area as you do!) and my little course is over but I'm going to keep reading the book over the summer till the next course starts. Of course, I took 3 virtually useless languages in more comprehensive classes, now with something I could actually use I'm taking a night school at the middle school course. I.will.learn.spanish!

  3. oooh! cinco de mayo! forgot about that… maybe i'll make burritos for dinner… and wash it down with lots and lots of beer :Dfresh mangoes off the tree? i'm jealous! 😀

  4. Mmmm, burritos. I'm having salad. The fun never stops in our house!
    I'm telling you, nothing better than a fresh mango, minus the mess it makes. 🙂
    (And yes, I did question my spelling of a plural mango but went without the 'e'. I'm too lazy to look it up, lol)

Say What?
