We finished school until 2010 yesterday!!!!
I'm really hoping for a relaxing break, and I know there's lots of time for that since we have SIXTEEN whole days off (okay, okay, including weekends...) but I've been busy, busy--
Last night I babysat two adorable boys who are 4 & 2- they are the sweetest things! They live in a mansion, no lie, and have a 20 foot Christmas tree. While this a crappy picture of it, the actual tree is gorgeous!
After the boys went to bed, I began my thank-you cards for work. I pulled in quite the loot this year- gift cards to Bath & Body Works , Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, a huge shopping center, movie theater, Wendy's...plus multiple lotions, body sprays, boxes of chocolate and SOOO much food! I seriously won't be able to finish it all!
I worked on my thank you cards for a few hours today and finished them (THIRTY OF THEM!!!!, I try to do it early in break otherwise it's just hanging over my head and it's hard to relax!),
and then my friend/co-worker Hope & I braved the crowds to finish our Christmas shopping! Neither of us like shopping so after three stores and an hour or so, we were both done shopping for our families. I don't feel like any of the gifts I bought for my family this year are incredible or anything, but considering what's happened this month, I guess it's good they're getting anything at all. In addition, due to using some of the gift cards, I definitely didn't spend all the money I budgeted for Christmas- so that's a huge plus!
So, it's been busy (but boring to hear about, I'm sure). I'll have to think of something funny and off the wall to write about in the next few days ;) Oh, and here's a picture of our Christmas tree... nothing fancy!
