After a huge storm last night (none of which we hardly felt, oddly enough) my school was delayed by 2 hours this morning - giving me the perfect amount of time to sleep in and to sleep off this silly cold. After a huge week of Christmas Pageants, Series 7, and everything else life brings our way, we are ready for the weekend! Michael came home early from work this afternoon after spending a day with his buddy and a chainsaw out at Mom and Dad Mauss' house, clearing the road. 5-7 days until power for them! And I braved another class party and my kids and I had our classroom looking "spotless" before we left today. Only 2 1/2 more days of school until break!!!
Now it's time for a much needed weekend. Ashley's coming up to stay tomorrow night and we are finally in town for once! It will be nice to have Michael home on a Saturday and to spend time with friends. And, as I overheard today in class, the "countdown to Christmas begins!"
