Welp, it's January 5th, Sunday evening. 7:46. I am staring the return to school down the throat. When school let out two weeks ago it seemed like break would go forever. But it didn't and it doesn't and it's time to go back to work. It could be worse. I could have my last assignment of the quarter due first thing in the morning. Ah, my poor students. Such suckers.
The break was wonderful, albeit very very busy. With two straight weeks you would think I'd get bored, but nope. We were here there and everywhere. Greg's brother was in town for a week, my sister from Germany was here for five days, Greg's play opened, my best friend was here from California, my other best friend turned thirty, and of course there was the WEDDING of my little sister.
We were busy, no doubt, but above all we felt very grateful for friends, family and the time to be together. In my old and wise age, I have discovered that my favorite thing is to be surrounded by my loved ones and just be.
And now, pictures.
There was a lot of snow to begin with.
And a beautiful Christmas morning.
That's a wrap! Now it's back to the grind. But, sheesh, it's a good grind.
