Double yay-- also on my Christmas break!
Tonight is grading papers... bleah. It's great that I have the students hand their research papers in before break because then I have time to get them done, but it also sort of kills my break.
Tomorrow is volunteering, more grading papers in the afternoon, then a fun night out to dinner with family. We're going somewhere really nice, so I'm looking forward to getting dressed up.
Sunday: grocery shopping, grading papers, hopefully getting some thank you notes written and some cookies baked.

I'm off for 12 days as of a half hour ago.
Twelve delicious sleep-ins.
Tapas tonight with the ladies from work, then goofing off depending on the weather until Monday, then I go and rescue my new guitar from the Fedex depot at the airport. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

No plans for me tonight. The kids are at their dad's for the weekend.
Tomorrow, going with SO's aunt to get her a new cellphone and add her to his phone plan. Wrapping presents after that. Later on we will be hanging out with my bff and her hubby.
Sunday, it's our annual nativity play with our pre-school/kindergarten class. Will be stressful getting them all dressed up, but they look so cute! Not sure what I'll do after church. Maybe some housework/laundry.

Hope you won big at blackjack Tesla. Are you buying the virtual beers to celebrate?
Today is a major housecleaning day to get ready for Christmas. I also have to get the emissions on the van tested and finish Christmas shopping. My day with the kids for Christmas is Christmas Eve so that kills a day for getting ready.
Tomorrow night GF and I are going to see Celtic Woman in concert. She bought these tickets months ago and we are really excited about seeing it.

I'm doing a bunch of laundry, packing a suitcase and jumping on an airplane for a two week trip to Italy!

Taking 2 of the dogs to the vet for shots this morning (spending some of my hard earned bonus on them!)
Then, I need to finish shopping and wrap. It's gonna be a brutal day.
Tomorrow, we're celebrating the holiday at my dad's family.
Monday, back to work.

Hmmm, slept in this morning and will clean house and do laundry today. Hanging out with IrishLad and maybe a movie tomorrow. Also slowly recovering from a dental appointment yesterday. It took 7 shots of Novocain to get me numb. My mouth hurts

I used to get the last two weeks of the year off. This is the first time in 12 years I'm working straight through to year end. You guys are lucky! I miss the break.
I'm moving apartments (same building) next weekend so am going to organize for the move this weekend. Being lazy is sounding pretty darn good, too.

In a little while I will shower and get ready for a date with a guy from Match.
Tomorrow is grocery shopping and more yoga. then the littles come home at 6:30.

I spent the weekend doing stuff around the house, wrapping the presents I procrastinated wrapping, and buying the other presents I procrastinated buying. But I got to have dinner with DD21 and her friends, got to shop with DD21, and got to see a great show on Friday night with my boyfriend.
So a good weekend overall. And now, except for a bit of working from home tomorrow, I'm OFF until Thursday.
