So last week was better. Work was crazy, of course. Lots of teachers out sick. And I got chewed out by a couple of parents, which is always fun. This week we are only open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but I don't know what to expect. We will have some kids out for the holiday, but our after school kids will be there all day since public school is off all week. So I don't know if enough of our full time students will be off to balance out the twenty or so extra kids we will have, and I KNOW that a lot of teachers are off this week. Don't ask me how we are going to get through Wednesday, because I have no idea! I am hoping Michelle will work that out before she leaves on Tuesday.
I did a little crafting last week and had a very productive shopping trip yesterday that has me prepared for LOTS of crafting this week! The holiday open house is only a few weeks away, so I have lots to do! My glue gun got away from me tonight and I burned a big blister onto my left thumb! Man, it hurt! Feeling better now, but I need to pay more attention with that glue! It's called "hot glue" for a reason!
I have made 30 or so ornaments, and a few other decorations. I have quite a few other things that I would like to make but some of them will be quick and easy! I will try to post some pictures, but my camera doesn't take great pictures of close up objects, so...
In other news, we went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I on Friday. I am happy to say that I enjoyed it very much =-) Even being split into two parts, there was still a lot of things left out that I would have liked to see in the film, but overall, I was very pleased. I LOVE these movies. I love the books more, but I am thrilled that the series is coming to its completion on the screen. I hope I get a chance to see this one in theaters again. I had an invitation to do so today, but that just wasn't happening.
Last night I went to The Melting Pot in Addison for Jenn's (one of my college roommates) birthday party. She turned 30 today. We were there for 4.5 hours and I actually got a little frustrated because the waitress didn't understand the question that I asked when we first got there, so I didn't get to order what I had hoped to. 4.5 hours is a long time to sit at a restaurant and just drink water. But it was good to see my friends and I am glad that I went.
After a day of shopping with my mom and a long dinner that kept me out until 11:00 last night, I barely saw Brett yesterday. He had a different birthday party to go to last night and yesterday he spent the day with his mom... SHE FINALLY BOUGHT A CAR!!! Have I mentioned that we have been taking her car shopping for several weeks? Probably not, because I have been such a bad blogger lately. But this has been a very long process, and I am THRILLED to say that she is now a happy owner of a 2010 Nissan Sentra. It only had 4,000 miles on it, and she didn't have any trouble getting approved for a loan at Car Max. It was a huge blessing for all of us, and we are thankful that the car shopping is done.
I am SO happy that this week is Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving. I am excited about seeing my family, I am excited about shopping on Friday and I am super excited about putting up the tree and wrapping presents! WOOHOO for the holidays!
I am off to find Jenina's blog (I can't believe I had to hear from Krista that you started a blog!!!) and then do some crafting.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Pray for safe hot glue gunning!
