Today we took a long ride to Ozark and back.  There are some wicked hills in the country in between, but it’s good for us.  It’s only a little over a month until the Tour De Cox and we still have never ridden 62 miles before.

Once we got back to town, we stopped at Rosati’s, a fairly new pizzeria that is supposed to have authentic Chicago pizza here in Springfield.  We had lunch there, and it was good, but definitely no competition for places like Pizzeria Uno or Gino’s East in Chicago.

Our California trip is all booked and paid for.  We leave nere July 20th and we’ll be there a week!  So looking forward to taking Ceecee to wine country and to see the pacific Ocean.  It’s funny; with her upbringing, she’s been all over Europe, but has never been to California or seen the Pacific.

Today, 3-14, is affectionately known among math teachers such as myself, as Pi day.  Not pie.

Pi.

As in 3.14

So anyway, it’s traditional for math teachers to eat “pie” on “Pi” day.  This year, Pi day occurred during Spring Break, so we don’t have any students to share any pie with.

Ceecee and I aren’t huge fans of pie, but we do love pizza.  And… it just so happens that pizzas are traditionally referred to as “pies,” at least within the trade.

That was all the excuse Ceecee and I needed to spend some time at Old Chicago “celebrating.”  wink, wink.

We also needed an excuse to get away from packing.  Yes, packing.  As in, we talked to the landlords of the new loft and asked if we could pay a prorated part of the current month and move in early over Spring break!

So…..it’s Spring Break and we are extremely excited about our new loft!  Packing still sucks, though, but the pizza was great!
