Finally, I am on vacation. This first semester almost killed me this year. I am somehow grateful for being a teacher right now--not everyone gets the vacation we do.
Of course, not everyone fears death after working for 17 weeks.
Aaaaaaaaanyhooo, it's vacation. Here's my daily log:
7am: Wake up. I went to bed at 9:30pm, so this represents the BEST SLEEP EVER. It was awesome.
7:30am: Little Monkey wakes up. We eat a cinnamon roll for breakfast.
8am: I go downstairs with LM. She watches Thomas the Train and then Elmo, and I write and address all of our holiday cards.
10am: I wake up The Man to watch LM, and then I take off.
10:30-1:30: Amy's Time. I went to the post office, for starters. Some woman in front of me didn't know how to use the self-serve kiosk, and got pissy. I think my cheerful mood pissed her off even more. I was delighted by the stamps that I purchased from the kiosk--they were all Santa ornaments. Yay!
After the post office, I treated myself to a trip to the library. I owed them money (fines! fines! I am a terrible human being), and paid it off. I picked up a DVD that The Man had on hold, and then I perused the (gasp!) fiction section. I checked out two novels from Dan Patterson. That should hold me for the duration.
Next, I went to Cherry Creek mall. This could have been a mistake, but I was coming off a good night's sleep, and I was by myself, so there was no worry. It was crowded and a bit ridiculous, but I did alright. I bought an external hard drive for The Man's computer, and after that, upgraded our cell phones. Check it out here.
1:30-9:30 Made myself some lunch, talked to my mother, read the paper and some magazines, etc. Around 7:30pm we had popcorn and hot cocoa for dinner. Then it was bathtime for Little Monkey. Then bedtime for Little Monkey.
And then bedtime for Mama.
