Enjoying the Warmth Before Winter Hits

by Tammy on December 16, 2017

We actually had a pretty decent day weather-wise. It was almost 50° and sunny with light wind, so Dan and I got out for a walk. The bottom is going to drop out on Thursday, though, and winter will arrive with a vengeance. I am not looking forward to it at all. I guess I’d better enjoy the next four days. I don’t have any jobs lined up for next week yet, but the only day I’d work would be Tuesday anyway. Wednesday I’m getting my hair done and Friday is a half day, and with Thursday turning winter-like, I know I’ll prefer to just stay home. As far as Monday goes, I typically don’t work Mondays because I like my three day weekends. A lot of subs don’t work on Monday, so it’s easy to get jobs, but I think I’ll use Monday to work on papers and start preparing for Christmas. I have the bulk of my shopping done, and I didn’t do much this year at all. Matt hasn’t told me what he wants, so I’ll probably just get him an Amazon gift card. I need to get one more thing for Ben, Dan’s gift came today, we all pitched in and bought my mom a new iPad, and I am giving my nieces money, so I’m set for the most part. I just need to wrap a few things and grocery shop for Christmas dinner. I have my Christmas Day menu planned out, but I have no idea what I’m making for Christmas Eve yet. I probably won’t go all out. Maybe I’ll make stir fry or cauliflower and mushroom tacos.

I wasn’t as productive as I wanted to be today. The best I did was clean my kitchen and finish my orientation class at Trident. That is one less thing to worry about. I also talked to Dan on our walk about potential dissertation topics. He is going to be such a great resource for me over the next three years. I’m thankful that I have such a smart hubby. I am planning to do some biostats reading before bed, and it’s about time for me to head that way now. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hi Tammy! Thank-you for visiting my blog! I forgot to blog this week, but I did tonight.
So, do you like subbing better than being a para? I guess for me, I like the knowing my schedule. The money would be better if I would sub though. Oh well.
I am so excited for you that you get to move to Orange Beach, AL!! You know how much I loved it there. Keep me posted on your house adventure!
Have a great time with your daughter! Love you and Happy Easter!
