Dear Blogging Friends,

I am writing to let you know that I really, really, really wish I could throttle certain 9th graders. Particularly those of the male variety. I am weary of their inconsiderate choices, their troublesome behavior, their immaturity, and the messes they seem to trail behind them. You know how the news loves to portray these awful stories of teachers having indecent relationships with their 9th grade students? I am here to say these teachers are certifiably insane. There is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING that could behoove me to spend more time than is absolutely necessary in their presence. 14-15 year old boys are awful, awful people.

I also have a blog post marinating in my brain about men who used to be 14-15 year old boys. But I don't want to sound bitter and nasty. I'm debating how to broach this particular little subject. And my date last week. And what it means to be my age, female, LDS, living in Utah, and single.

In happier news, it is my 30th birthday in March. I only turn 30 once so the roommate and I have decided that a dream vacation to Cancun is in order. It will have to wait until my Spring Break in April, but we're definitely going. We've talked to the travel agent, we've looked (and looked and looked and dreamed and looked some more) at the pictures of our resort, I even dreamt about it last night. We are going for a week-long vacation of beautiful beaches, room serviced breakfasts of fresh fruit on our deck with a hammock, snorkeling, resting, reading, kayaking, ruins, bartering with the locals, and relaxation. And watching thousands of drunk co-eds drown all memory of their spring break. I can hold out until April 16th, right? Perhaps this demands a paper chain?

So there you have it. A snapshot of my brain's musings at this particular moment in time. Tell me, dear reader, what is haunting, frustrating, or eagerly awaiting you?

I am jealous already! It sounds positively dreamy. I can't wait to hear the report on the date.

I love you Rookie. Thanks for blogging.

Yay for 30. I've loved it so far. I wish your birthday were closer because I would be closer to giving birth.

I'm pretty sure I know what you mean. My son is 14 and in 9th grade. He is a GREAT kid! He is also fairly disorganized and likes to tell potty stories from scout camp at the dinner table. Hang in there for April!

I concur with the paper chain talk. A must!

I've honestly been thinking about how I can make sure that my sweet, hilarious two year old son doesn't turn into an idiot teenager boy (of which we have several squatting next door!!!!!!!!). Mysteries...

Cancun?!!! You didn't tell me! So fun, only wish I could go. At least I get to come and see you guys in the summer.

Here's to, "Thirty, flirty and thriving!!"

Love you!
