First of all, I am done. School? It is over for 2009. But I gotta tell you. Teaching 31 fifth and sixth graders on December 22? Is cruel and unusual punishment. And can I tell you how loosely I use that term teach? Let's just say it was a long day.
But it's over!
Thus beginnning Christmas Break, 2o09. Somehow Christmas snuck up on me this year. I remember thinking back in September, "I should think about doing some Christmas shopping." And then followed that up with, "Nah. It's only September. I have TONS of time."
Here it is December 22 and I am still not quite sure if I have everything done. It has been hard Christmas shopping with my two constant companions. And every time I would think I could get something done, Cole would throw up, ending those plans.
Did I mention the school called me at 12:10 today? To let me know that Cole had thrown up?
Luckily Daddy was able to rescue him while I finished teaching. He has been okay the rest of the night. No fever, no more puking. He was just a little couch potato all afternoon and hasn't eaten much to speak of.
With any luck, he will stay healthy all night and I can take them both to daycare in the morning while I finish up the shopping, start some cooking, and get the wrapping done. Oh, and make Christmas candy. There's so much to do!
Somebody pass the wine!
