Great weather and holidays
I'm excited about the holidays coming up. Thanksgiving I always cook, so I'm already looking for new recipes and getting the old ones out. Charlie has put in a request for numerous pumpkin pies. I know Thanksgiving and Christmas will be different this year, but I'm excited about it. The boys and I are talking about what we want to do for Christmas. Charlie has asked that we stay home for Christmas this year. Christmas eve is Charlie's birthday, and I can't remember the last time we were home for Christmas because we usually take our vacation during Christmas break. So, this year we're staying home...having a tree and the whole bit. Yeah, I'm excited.
I've been working a lot. Tuesday I had the worst classes I have ever had. I subbed for an art teacher and apparently she gives her kids full reign of the class. There was one class I couldn't get to quiet down enough to answer attendance and she didn't believe in seating arrangements, so I couldn't even account for who was there. The entire day I thought, this will be my last day of subbing...ever. But then I remembered how my kids like to eat...so, that wasn't a realistic option. When classes are this bad, it's not so much the student's fault as it is the teachers. Apparently this was the norm for her classes. Sad. I made it a very early night Tuesday.
As far as things with my family situation...it's pretty much all good. The boys are good, Mark and I are *fingers crossed* getting close to this all being over and we all seem to be settling into a pretty decent routine. Life is pretty good. Spending a LOT of time on Casey's college applications, getting the schools all the information and test results they need...and searching and applying for every scholarship available. Thanks for checking in with me and for your prayers. I'm thankful for all of you. Hugs!
