The end is near...

Teaching at this time of year is awful. I don't want to be in the classroom. The kids don't want to learn. It's just mass chaos today. Only about 3/4 of the students have come to school, as well as 3/4 of the teachers.

What movie would you like to see? Ratatouille? Mulan in Spanish/French? Shrek 2? Take your pick!

What type of food would you like? Cookies? Cake? Chips? Candy canes?

I'm so NOT looking forward to sixth period-my class of 34 (26 boys and 8 girls) will be BOUNCING off the walls...so, if you hear on the news that a teacher was placed into a straight jacket, you will know why.

Once I get home, there are cookies to bake, presents still to wrap and of course there is still knitting to be finished! Oh my...

In The Christmas Spirit

We have decorated the house and the tree and have been thinking about gifts to give to our loved ones this Christmas season.

Jason came up with this idea and I am all for it. His idea was to give money to an organization, Kiva.org, that helps others who are less fortunate or cannot get a loan to give them the push in the right direction; to better their lives. We decided that we would give gift certificates to Kiva to our nephews for Christmas so that they can choose the person to help out. We have been blessed with so much, that we feel we need to give back to others.

If you're feeling like you want to give, check out Kiva.org and for as little as $25, you can help out someone in need of a better life.

I woke up to snow! YIPPPEEEE! Of course I am home sick today (as well as yesterday), so there will be no playing with the aforementioned snow. Ho hum.

Jason proudly informed me that since he has lived in Maryland (5 years, 4 months), it has snowed on December 5th just about every year. Lucky MD!!!!
