Christmas Break

I’m not sure that it will really be much of a break, but I am glad that I don’t have to teach classes for two weeks.  Matthew came over for lunch on Friday and then he went to do some shopping.  I finished up his gifts and got them wrapped on Saturday morning.  I cleaned house – amazingly, and went to the store to get groceries for the week.  I got stuff to make cashew chicken and then Matthew came over around 4:30 on Saturday for dinner.  Matthew, Josh, and his friend Dustin helped put the ornaments on the tree so I actually have everything decorated now.  Matthew stayed for dinner and then headed home around 7:00 since he had things to do in order to get ready to leave today.  He’ll be here in about an hour and we’ll exchange gifts and then I’m taking him to the airport.  He’s heading up to his parents’ house in Montana for a week and then he’s going to Indiana for a week so I won’t see him during Christmas break at all.  Hopefully absence does make the heart grow fonder. 

I plan to do pretty much nothing today.  I think I’ll watch some t.v. tonight, maybe start a book.  Tomorrow and a few days next week, I’ll go up to the school to do some work.  For Christmas Josh and I are staying home.  We’re going to have fettucine alfredo for Christmas dinner.  Most of my shopping is done.  I have a few more things to get, but I’ll head out one day next week and get the last few gifts I havne’t bought yet.  I did most of my shopping online already.

Pretty much nothing is what I did today.

I also did my shopping online. I hate the holiday crowds.

It sounds as if your life is going well and you are enjoying yourself. That makes me happy :-) Enjoy your last few days with Matthew and have a wonderful holiday!
