Like Christmas? Well, sorta. Considering there's a tree in the living room and stockings by the fire place. But this is the first year since we have lived here that we have not decorated the outside of the house. I feel guilty - it's something we usually look forward to each year but there just has not been enough time. There's always next year...
I finished up my classes last week - and got my grades on Monday. I somehow managed to pull an A in my Biology class and a high B in Astronomy. Miracles of the season if you ask me. Those were two really hard classes to take at the same time. I've also been accepted to a college where i will finish my final 15 months and be well on my way to teaching! I have to go to meet with an advisor on Thursday at their main campus and will attend classes at one of the more local campuses so that will be nice for the gas budget around here!
Almost finished with the Christmas shopping as I just have a few things to pick up. I feel like I am racing against the clock this year. The local school lets the kids out starting Friday so I really need to make sure I've gotten everything under control by then. My Dad is having some health issues with his artificial valve and it has made this holiday season a little bit harder on all of us.
I will try to check in more often with everyone at least until my next round of classes. Until then, I wish you one and all a Merry Christmas. :)
