I've been pretty crappy at blogging this past week! I was really busy with a 10-page paper due and my final evaluation with my supervisor (both went well, so I can breathe again). The kids have been very difficult as well - their attention spans are shrinking while the silliness factor keeps multiplying. My patience threshold has been low, as you could probably guess. So I'm very happy that I've had two whole days off in a row, it's so wonderful. Tomorrow is a ped day too, so I will have lots of time to plan for my last week of stage.

Today I am going to scrapbook at Julie's which makes me ver, ver happy. If you are wondering why I didn't include the "y" on very, you should know that I am in the process of reading a Georgia book, as you may have noticed on the side of my blog. It will only make sense to those of you who have ventured into that world. Yes, I know the books are fluff, but they are so addictive, and did I mention, British? You know me and all things British.

Yoga or cardio this morning? That is the question du jour. Also, I must clean my disgusting scrapbooking mess and pack and plan before leaving for Julie's in just a few hours. I better get on that right away.

We (aka my mother) started unpacking a bunch of Christmas decorations. I helped take out the tree, and we will probably decorate tonight, yay! I also have to bake something for tomorrow because the principal is coming back and they're having a little breakfast party.

Enough rambling for now because it's taking me forever to type this thanks to my demented keyboard... I haven't bought a new one because I think I wrote that as a gift idea and I'm afraid someone has already bought it for me. I must suffer until then...

Here is a recent layout I made.

And here are the first pictures I've taken for the December photo challenge. The first is of a swarovski crystal that my cooperating teacher gave me. The next of a Christmas decoration - we have several of these snowmen along the stairway to the basement.

Alright, well I'm off to exercise. Cheers!

I love Georgia! I dont know ANYONE else who reads them! I got into it a few years ago, havnt read the newest one yet. But, I actually call my mom Mutti, because of those books. And it really stuck, thats what I always call her now!
This is too funny. Which one are you reading now?
Off to hamburger a gogo land!

I love your blog... the photos are beautiful, especially the crystal pendant. And yes, I totally GET the whole lack of attention and silly behaviour thing. I live it constantly in the evenings and on weekends! lol
