I feel like I am still recovering from Christmas and all of the wonderful celebrations! I just now opened my 2013 Calendar....and we are already 7 days in. Oiy! I hope I haven't missed something important. Our school district started back to school this past Thursday and even without my shiny 2013 Calendar, I knew the date by heart. You just might have heard collective groans from my fellow teachers and students last Thursday.
My Rachel is still wonderfully home from college which makes me think I should be home with her too. Don't you think?
Ugh! Seriously, I am thankful for my teaching position, where I teach, and the students I am blessed to teach, but this break flew by way too quickly. I hear that happens more and more the older you get. Oiy!
Speaking of older, I heard that from my eye doctor over the break who decided that I needed bifocal contact lenses. Say what?! He told me to try them for a week. I couldn't see a thing! I couldn't read street signs, everything looked 3D when I tried to read it and I had the most awful headaches. Long story short, he made a mistake?! And I am happily seeing again...which is kind of important!
I have had a sinus infection since Thanksgiving, but after two trips to the doctor, two antibiotics, and two shots, I am feeling better. My doctor casually mentioned that I was getting older too. What is up with that?!
But, in my old age (gracious I am only 43...okay that just looked a bit old when I typed it...especially because I wasn't sure if I was 42 or 43. Oiy!) my feet get cold. Cold... as in ICE COLD! I guess my man was tired of having ice cubes for feet lying next to his in bed, so, in all of his love and thoughtfulness, he surprised me with these for Christmas:
Aaaah! They are so comfortable and so warm and I would wear them everywhere if I could! They are the first things I put on in the morning! I would totally wear them to school if I could. And yes, I know they are outrageously expensive and I never would have asked for a pair, but I am so thankful to have them. It's cold in our part of Texas right now (I saw your northerners rolling your eyes!). Okay, it is cold in our part of Texas for us! And these babies keep my feet nice and toasty. And they are pretty cute too!
