Woo hoo! This is my last day of school and now I have a two week stay at home! Yippee! We are supposed to wear ugly sweaters today, but I think it's kind of a mean idea, don't you? Why make fun of Christmas sweaters? I don't get it. I'd wear my Santa hat but it would make me very hot. I think I'll just put some wacky ponytails in my hair and wear the Santa suit jacket. Done.
We've been listening to The Nutcracker. Have you ever been to the ballet? It's lovely.
Today Bill is going to be our guest speaker. He's going to tell my students about kids all over the world. Yahoo! After that (well, between class periods) I'm in charge of a birthday lunch for one of the teachers, so I have to set the tables and make the salad. Busy! It's fun to sit around the table with people.
Soon I'll be holed up in our mouse house and I can't WAIT! Oh, there are many things to do, but I won't think about them just now. Let's live in the moment. The moment is good.
I wish you orangey whiffs and long drinks of hot tea! Maybe you could hold hands with someone wearing red mittens or smooch another someone under the mistletoe, which reminds me that I need to buy some! Bill is exercising to "Let it Snow" right now and I hope it does very soon! Candy canes all around!
