Checking In

It feels good to be back on this side of a post being the writer and not just the reader. I had a great Christmas break and honestly was not wanting to get back at it last week but it turned out to be a fairly productive week. e. It didn't even cross my mind until I was out and about the Monday after Christmas that evWe had a couple of rough days with the kids (and me!) getting back into the swing of things but we're ready to power though and finish out the year. I'm so thankful for a job that allows plenty of personal timeryone else had to work. I'm very grateful.

My camera is missing so I'm disappointed that I don't have a lot of pictures to remember the last few months by and even more disappointed that I'm eventually going to have to get a new camera if it doesn't show up. I have no idea where it could be. I've looked all over my house, car and classroom. I'm checking craigs list all the time hoping to find a good used one for a decent price. Part of me wants to buy a bigger nicer camera that I know I will take care of and keep in a safe place but part of me also wants just another cheap point and shoot because I don't have the best track record when it comes to cameras. Oh decisions decisions.

It has been sooo cold this week! I don't think it got above freezing for 3 days. I spent a lot of evenings on the couch. Of course the night it rained it was nearly 40 so school went off without a hitch. I'm glad we didn't use a weather day though. I'll be thankful for those when they roll around. We still have a lot of winter left though so there's no telling what else we could have coming.

This weekend has been so lazy. Yesterday it was in the teens when I got up and I definitely didn't want to be out so I posted up in front of the tv and was so glad when Chelsea cooked breakfast. I didn't get up until about 2:30 and ran to Subway in my pajama pants and came home and took a nap while a True Life marathon was on. I finally got up and took a shower and Aaron, Trish and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings. It's hard sometimes to always be around couples but they are all so sweet to include me. I got straight in bed as soon as we came in and slept so good even after not doing anything all day. It was good to get out and go to church this morning and Janie and I had the best time teaching Sunday School. There is a little girl that I've had in VBS before and in my class when I interned at Elysian Fields who visited our class this morning. She is such a talker and we laughed the whole morning at all of the crazy things she had to say. She didn't know Janies name so she just said "Ms. Lynn" all morning long asking me questions and saying the wildest things. Her parents would probably be mortified at everything she told us. We were rolling! I'm going to eat with Mom and Dad and then head home. I might try to get some laundry done and folded but if it doesn't happen I'm not stressing.

Have a great week!
