We Were Away

away from home
away from responsibility
away from the phone
away from the Internet
away from cleaning
it felt good
but it feels even better
to be home

Happy New Year
I missed you

Some Pictures

Jacob and Josh both loved this digger which they really are too big for.

This sums up the mood of the day

This is one of my two mystery gifts. The other box contained matching drop earrings. I took a picture of them, but it didn't come out. I'm too tired to take another picture. They are beautiful and I love them.

I Drove in the Snow

This may not seem like a big deal, but as those who know me can attest to, I am scared shitless of driving in the snow. I have panic attacks at the mere thought of it. Luckily for me, Melanie lives around the corner and we work together. (What will I do next year when you move, mel?)

Today I drove myself to school in the snow and was fine, but was getting more and more anxious as the day went on and the snow was building up. I decided to leave my car at school for the night, and drive home with Melanie.

But when I got out to the parking lot I decided to suck it up and drive myself. As it turned out, the roads were 100% fine. I didn't slide once, and there was no traffic. But I didn't know for sure that the roads would be that way.

The roads were so fine that I ended up meeting T for dinner and shopping in Framingham!

Go me!


p.s. To K from Texas: Congrats on your upcoming wedding. I am so very happy for you! We want pictures!

No Heat

I came home to no heat today
My brand new boiler was having an issue
I do not handle times like that well
I am the first to admit
I get a bit crazy
3 hours later
we have heat
but T is mad
and I am sad
Sometimes I wonder if I should be on meds

My Life in Pictures

Snow Day
Space here on Earth (and taking up my whole living room thanks to my sister who had to prove that my house is messy)

The definition of torture

Yes, those blue boxes are for me


A Bit of a Cheat

This post has to count for Sunday, and I will write a new post tonight for Monday!
We were snowed in yesterday, and I decided to spend the day off of the computer. This is a very hard task for me, as my natural inclination is to check my email and blog every five minutes! Instead I watched a movie with the boys on either side of me, and worked on a 1,000 piece puzzle with T.

This morning my town had a two hour delay due to weather, so I'm sitting in my classroom without students. It sure feels nice!

The party Saturday night was a blast. Somehow I managed to give away a battery operated toy, but ended up with a squeaking rubber chicken. Huh? Not sure how that worked.

Ok, off to get work done before the kids come! I will post again tonight!

No Entries For A Week?

Has it really been a week?
I have no excuses
I've been busy
Tis the season
I suppose

Not much has happened
this past week
we got a lot of snow
T and I shoveled
and it was fun

Somehow even the most laborious jobs
become fun
when I do them with T

Tonight I'm hosting a small gathering
we are having a "dirty" yankee swap
Can't wait to see what I end up with
T just picked up some handcuffs
to put in from him
my contribution requires batteries
should be a fun time

I promise to post every day this week
