Now that the packages, boxes, and bags have been unwrapped, unpacked, and emptied we are settling down for our long winter's nap. Ha! We had a whirlwind of a day, but that makes them more interesting I suppose. I woke up early with Kyle today and went to work with him...sort of. I dropped him off at his work, then headed over to mine to put in a few hours getting ready for the work week next week. I got a ton done. I worked 5 hours uninterrupted (minus a few phone calls from my hubby, and one to make a dinner date for tomorrow.) I got my entire classroom rearranged moving the trouble makers to the far corners so that they won't be as tempted to act out. I have my lessons planned for the first week back, and my lessons altered for those who need extra help and for those who need a more challenging road. Whew!Then I got to have a bite to eat with my hubby before we went home to tackle the undecorating of the tree, despite my friends theory that taking the tree down before New Year's Day is bad luck. I have never heard that theory before. You know we break the pork roast and sauerkraut on New Year's Day for good luck too! We both hate sauerkraut, except Kyle likes it on a Reuben sandwich.
So out with the Santas, tree, garland, ornaments and poinsettias and in with the snowmen. I have a small collection, but each little piece makes me happy when I put them out.
We ended the evening watching Kayla cheer at the basketball game. We watched the JV lose again. And the varsity win 69-40 against the Northwestern Huskies. Kayla is getting better at her side-line dances. She did all but 2 tonight. Much better! I'll have to remember my camera to get another video. She got her pictures tonight.
I have had fun posting my journal and meeting new blogging friends. I hope to meet many more in the year to come. Thanks for introducing me my friend chatty Kathy!
