Beautiful day!

I am blown away by today’s weather.  Today I got up to head to the same school that on Monday I canceled due to snow…and today it is the most perfect day ever.  Seriously.  Sunny, 60 degrees…beautiful.  (I know that’s cold for some of my friends, but trust me, it’s perfect.)

I ran outside for 6 miles too.  I love when I get to wear my Phoenix RnR t-shirt to work out Smile.  I don’t know why, I just feel fancy wearing it.  It’s a little challenging as it is navy blue, and sometimes I get bothered wearing a navy blue shirt with black shorts or capris (my usual color) so today I paired it with blue capris.  Then I put on my black water belt…so I’m not really sure what I accomplished.  A six mile run, I guess.  No one is concerned about my fashion—I’m sure they are just wondering why somebody would run so slowly.

I started reading Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua.  There was quite a bit of press about this book when it came out, so naturally I have to read it.  Here’s a link to the NY Times article about it, and here’s a link to the Wall Street Journal article.  I’m reading the book from the standpoint of a child, a violin teacher, and a hypothetical parent, and it’s interesting thinking about her story from those angles.  And my upbringing was a little bit “Chinese” as well, so I can definitely relate!  Have you read the book?  Thoughts??
