Outside my window...
Remember the tree  I planted back in June? It's ready for Christmas!

I am thinking...
Of course, we do live in the inner city and I have seen trees where the the tops have been sawed off so that someone could have a small, FREE Christmas tree!  So we are keeping a vigilant watch.  We have also surrounded it with four Rebar poles. 

I am thankful for...
that this week is a much slower week and I can get my grounding back to celebrate Christmas.

From the learning rooms...
We are taking this week off!  making cookies, sending cards, wrapping presents, and trying to stay home.  I need the break as much as the kids do.

From the kitchen...
Tonight's O-Antiphon is key lime pie for Key of David.  The kids (big and small) are really enjoying this.

I am wearing...
My work out clothes because I actually got a chance to workout this morning.
The Firm Body Sculpting System, Fat Blasting Cardio with Lisa Kay the workout I love to hate!

I am creating...
probably three dozen more toll house chocolate chip cookies!  I got cute boxes for them yesterday  at Michel's.

I am going...
to start wrapping my stash of presents.  I did most of my shopping online or at tag sales this year.  I only bought two things at an actual store and I am very proud of myself for that!

I am also going down to the post office to mail my Christmas cards!

I am reading...
a whole box of Christmas books to Rosie!  One a night.

I am hoping...
also to get out to the cemetery to put lights out at the baby's grave and mom's niche. I also applied for a job of sorts doing Catholic research - keeping my fingers crossed for that one!

I am hearing...
Not much. Kids are still asleep.

Around the house...
I am going to tackle the classroom and Mt. Everest- the Laundry.  Seems I always do a lot of laundry between Christmas and New Years.

A few plans for the rest of the week:

  • House cleaned
  • Get to confession
  • Wrap gifts
  • Make cookies
  • Keep up with my transcription.

  1. Congrats on your shopping achievement - well done! Have a very Merry Christmas with your family.

  2. I pray that you get that job. And happy laundering day - same to me. Sigh...seems like life revolves around laundry - washing, folding, and delivering to the right drawers. :-)

    Merry Christmas.
