Weekending: Prepping for Christmas
While many of my teacher friends are off this week, I have three full days of school before we are set free for the holiday break. This doesn't leave time for much, but happily, we don't have much to do.
We finally sent out our holiday cards. I missed every deadline offered by services like Snapfish, Mint, and Shutterfly, so I went to my local CVS, who had our cards ready in an hour.
On Friday night, we went to see A Christmas Carol.
This is one of my favorites, and this local production did not disappoint. The character of Jacob Marley was creepy, equipped with a harness that allowed him to fly around Scrooge. We used Goldstar, again, for discount tickets and we had great orchestra seats.
The rest of the weekend was pretty low key; I went shopping in the morning, and the Señor took care of car business, including routine service and putting on four new tires.
Yesterday, Gracie had another day of training. This week, we're still practicing walking on a leash, and then we're adding sit and stay.
She's still a love, but I will be glad when those baby teeth are gone.
The weekend ended with at home pizza night and wine and another Patriots win, which means another free coffee for me today, thanks to Dunkin' Donuts.
This week in school will entail this...wish us all luck.
How was your weekend? If you work outside the home, when is your last day before the holiday?
Have a great week, friends!
