ready or not

The tree is up! The house is decorated. The front porch is almost decorated. We are on our way. The girls begin final exam week today. They will both be home by Friday.

Ready or not, Christmas is coming!

The icemaggedon storm of the century fizzled out. We had some icy spots and the trees took a pounding in some areas, but overall, it could have been much worse. I'm not walking Duke this morning as the sidewalks have some slick spots and the last thing I need to do is to slip and fall. I  may have to walk in the afternoons so that we can see where we are going and the ice will have melted after a day of above freezing temps.

I'm craving some sunshine. We haven't seen much, if any, of Mr. Sun for the past 5 days. Ugh. While we watched some NFL games yesterday, and saw the teams playing in the snow, I sort of missed the white stuff. I don't miss the lack of sunshine though. Not one bit.

Although it was quite funny to watch an NFL player making snow angels in the end zone.

Ten work days until vacation! Yippee!! Happy Monday.

And I FINALLY got your tote bag in the mail today! So you can look forward to an extra present!
Sorry it took so long. Last Thurs and Fri, I didn't leave school until after 5:15, too late to get to the post office. And Saturday I spent helping my parents. So, it took until today. Sorry. HOpe you enjoy it anyway.
