Top Ten Excellent Things About Christmas Break

Top Ten Excellent Things About Christmas Break!

  1. Sleeping Late
  2. Reading Late into the Night
  3. Christmas Itself (with all the food, presents, family, etc. that that entails!)
  4. Going to the mall during the middle of the week
  5. Santa Claus!
  6. The smells of Christmas (food, spices, hot chocolate....I'm making myself hungry!)
  7. A clean house (well, at times, anyway!)
  8. No students!
  9. No late car duty!
  10. Staying in pjs all day if I want to!


School's out for Christmas break! I love it. It's one of the best times of the year. Katherine and I went to the mall this p.m.---couldn't believe the amount of people there on a Friday afternoon. Of course Hannah and her friends were there and while I figured we'd never run into them, we did. LOL Anyway, most of my Christmas shopping is done and now it's on the wrapping. I must be crazy---I don't mind wrapping at all.

Trotting Along Toward Christmas Break....

One more week....
Just one more week until Christmas break! I'm so excited to have so much time off this year. We get out on December 16 and go back January 3. nice just to contemplate having time before Christmas to get ready and then time afterwards to relax.

Observations of the Week, December 5-9:

  • Car duty stinks---really, really stinks.
  • There will always be some students I just don't like but I have to deal with it.
  • The Two Towers may have the best lines of all 3 movies of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
  • Some people will never be satisfied, no matter what you do.
  • I would never want to be a principal!

I am considering writing some fan fiction. I'd never thought I would be an idea popped fully blown into my head this morning and now I'm th inking it might not be such a bad idea. I feel the need to be more creative these days but I'm just not sure how....
