December

Since I've been the #1 blogging slacker the last few months, here's a few pics from December. December was filled with busyness, game nights, friends, holiday celebrations, and much, much more. 
Per tradition, I worked at Forgotten Carols again. This year, it was a little different. They had a very small amount of product, had hardly anyone working, the show was overbooked (so we couldn't go inside and watch like usual), etc. On the first night, business was pretty slow. We had one table on each end of the foyer. I was at the big table with my friend Sherri. I didn't mind that things were slow since she was there to chat with. But the second night was a bit crazy. I was at the big table all by myself and we were far, far busier than the night before. But I need the extra cash, so I guess it was worth it. Just a little sad that I didn't get to watch any of the show this year. :(
I finally decorated for Christmas like 10 days (maybe less) before Christmas. No tree t…

Christmas 2013

Well Christmas this year was interesting to say the least. The holidays are a very difficult time of year for me. I try to focus on what  do have, a wonderful family who loves me. But during the holidays when all of my family members are with their spouses and children, it's difficult for me not to focus on what I don't have…a spouse, the love of my life, my true love. So the holidays are always difficult. And as I've reached my 30's it has become ten times worse to get through the holidays. 
This year I spent Christmas with my parents and my grandpa. It was a nice quiet day. I went over to my parents' house on Christmas Eve. We decided to go out to dinner this year. My grandpa wanted Five Guys, but we discovered that they had closed early. So we moved on to Freddys, who had also closed early. As it turns out, In-n-Out was open until 11 pm, so we went there. Well…so did the entire town! We couldn't find a place to sit!!! But someone finally left and we were ab…

Hello November!

Wow! It has been a really long time since I last blogged! Sorry about that to anyone who reads my blog. If anyone does actually read my blog?? My life has been so crammed with craziness lately that I seriously couldn't find a single minute to blog. I do want to get caught up and share with you what I've been up to. I hope to be able to get to that this week. Check back in the next few days in hopes of finding updates.

But in the meantime, it's November! How did that happen? I feel like school just started yet we've been in school for 2 1/2 months. I'm absolutely adoring my students this year by the way! It's been very different but very rewarding for me. I've been teaching fourth grade for the last few years and this year I moved up to fifth grade. So I have about half of the same students from last year, which has been extremely rewarding as a teacher. And most of the rest of my students transferred from others schools this year. (A small handful were at m…
