I know it’s only October, but I am starting to get Christmas fever. I love picking out presents for other people, and I love the air of mystery that comes over our apartment—what will Danny get me? Where will he hide it? What new craft can I make for him this year? It’s all just so mysterious.
In other news, I have been obsessed with this book recently. It is so good—I can’t stop reading it!
When the weather starts to cool, I seem to just want to sit around in my fleece pajamas and read. That has negatively affected my ability to grade and plan lessons, but I’m not worried about that. Reading is what is really important—not keeping my job.
I am still having a hard time finding joy in this time of transition. Hopefully all of this Christmas merriment will lift my spirits.
And, the mystery stories my kids wrote on Friday are helping, too!
