Happy Holidays

Well, it's been a while since I've let myself take the time for luxuries.

Since my last post, I went to a great salon and had my hair colored and cut. I love the new look but I am still getting used to it. Today, I am taking myself out with my girlfriends from work, we are having appetizers and drinks and going to get pedicures and manicures. We have gift certificates and such, but even taking the time feels like a luxury right now.

Other than that, nothing is new in my life. I hope that you are all well and happy.

Happy Holidays to you if you celebrate them, and Happy New Year regardless of faith!
Wishing you well,

Friday blues?

For once in my life, I am not particularly looking forward to a weekend.

1. School has flown by this week, and I’d rather get next week done then have to wait longer for it to come, and go.
2. I have SUCH a busy weekend that I will have a hard time enjoying the various events! If anyone cares, I have book club party tonight, a big corporate holiday party tomorrow (think, chasing 18 mo old, trying to get her to behave, making sure that she is an angel so Grandpa Phil’s friends will be impressed), shopping and travel Sat. afternoon, work on Sunday morning to try and stay caught up, Hanukah with Adam’s family on Sunday afternoon/evening!

Any one of these events would have me happy as a clam, thinking how I can’t wait for the weekend to start so I can go have some fun. All together, it’s just a lot to do!

Having fun is so much work!

I just had a thought….Thank GOD I don’t have any grad school work to do, I might have a nervous breakdown.

Monday blahs

Well it is Monday yet again! Isn't it funny how fast time can fly except on Mondays! (although if you've followed my brain waves in the past.... it is mental Tuesday for me today because I came into work yesterday, Sunday, to get a jump start.)

I am anticipating that the next few weeks will fly by so that I can get to winter break.... so, inevitably (sp? jamie?) they will crawl.

I will keep you posted.

AND- I am thinking of taking my formerly blonde, now somewhat dishwater like hair to a nice light brown color. a color just dark enough never to be mistaken with blonde. I NEED CHANGE!

hello everyone

Hello to all of my imaginary friends who I imagine read this! And to Jamie who I know reads this!

It has been a long week! Apparently I like exclamation points today!!!!!!!!!

I have actually planned a movie for the students to watch today just so I can NOT do work. Now, in my own defense, it is perfectly timed with our curriculm and it is educational. However, I needed some time to do personal things like download pictures and reply to emails, and update my blog! It's not that I don't have grading and other work related work to do... I just promised myself that I would do the fun stuff first.

I love my job!

Now, as personal punishment... I am coming in to work on Sunday morning to have uninterrupted time for planning, grading, and grad school work. I am a crazy woman... who actually cares about her job and profession. Around here, sometimes I think I am alone in caring about my job and profession! Realistically though, I like to be a leader, it's part of my personality. And sometime I don't understand the people who just sit back and let things happen. AND.. I get really pissy when they complain about the results but won't help change things!

Enough for today... I am off to get some fatty snack to reward myself for not having dessert last night. Even I know it's messed up, but I do it anyway!
