Living the Village Life...

So, I am staying at my parent’s house in Corrales. I am watching it for them since they are up in Ohio visiting my sister. So far, I have had a chance to eat at some village restaurants that I have not been to in a while.

Tonight, I had Village Pizza, and man was it good. It was also much cheaper then I thought it was going to be. I had a calzone and 3 bread sticks, and it was 7.00 dollars before tip, 8.00 dollars after. I am thinking about going to other places this week. One place I may treat my self to before I leave for Wichita is Chef Jim Whites, Casas Vieja. I have not been there since high school, but I look forward to maybe getting back there sometime this week.

It also amazes me how many new buildings there are in the commercial area of the village. For two years, I worked in the middle of the village at Corrales Elem School as their Technology Administrator. Let alone the fact that I lived in the village for 15 years, so to drive thru the village and see all the new buildings is a little weird for me. Don't get me wrong, I am happy to see new business, and old business in new building in the village, but it's still weird. So, I must say that part of me does miss living in the Village since I move into town, but I do not miss the traffic & driving that I have had to do. Just to get to my office it is 13 miles one way from my parent’s house, compared with 5 miles from my apartment. I am really not looking forward to Tuesday thru Thursday, as I have to deal with Paseo Del Norte and the backups that happen on that road. So, I am guessing that I will have to leave about 25 to 30 min before I need to be in the office. Compare that to leaving my apartment about 10 mins before being in the office. So next week should be fun.

In other news, the end of June & the month of July is now the month of travel for me. I just got back from Ciudad Juarez, and next Thursday I leave for Wichita, KS. Then the next weekend after that, I am camping with the City Wide Youth Group, up in Northen New Mexico. Then on July 20, I will be in Phoenix, AZ for a training class. So, bascily once a week for three weeks, I will be traveling. Most is personal, but some is for work. So that is my July, add in a few meetings, dinner with friends, and other stuff, and its just another busy month.

So that is all that is going on in my life right now.
