Today at 3:15...

...I will be ready with purse in hand to walk right out of here. I cannot tell you how much I hate this week. Every year it is the worst...possibly even worse than the week before we get out for summer. Everyone is so incredibly ready to get out of school for the blessed 2 weeks and on top of that, everyone is so stressed out because not only do you have your own personal Christmas hell to go through, you have school Christmas hell to go through as well.

This specific week, however, has been crap-o-la. First we had the lovely day of Arctic Winter on Tuesday. The day which I couldn't get my garage door open (eventually I did though) and the same day that the power went out at school. Then it turned into Regular Texas Winter where it's just wet and cold and you hate being outside on Wednesday. The day that the heat didn't work in the library and there was a foul smell in the hallway, so I secluded myself in my freezer and tried to stay warm without puking from the stench. Then it turned into The Rainforest when the fog settled in. The day we had a PTA Pajama Read-In and Choir Concert here at school. It wasn't so bad...just extremely muggy throughout the whole school. This was also the day I discovered that a ginormous branch had fallen and was precariously leaning on a wire connected to my house. It almost knocked me over when I pulled it down.

However, today, the sun is shining and I get to see my gals for book club tonight. :) So let's hope it's the beginning of the end.

And remember folks...

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing loud for all to hear."

Oh goodness, elementary school Christmas IS hell on earth. Middle School Christmas is stressful, but it doesn't hold a candle to my work Christmas last year. Ugh. I was Scrouge all the way. But just think: IT'S OVER!!! Yippee-Skippee!!! :D

I'm glad you got through it and didn't kill yourself in your yard. We're looking forward to seeing you in eight days.

We love you. It's almost over. You can do it. I understand about the cold. We are going to have a windchill of -30 tomorrow. I thought about not going to church. I'll go, but I'm wearing Matt's pj pants under my skirt so my legs don't turn into popsicles and break off while i'm waling into the building.
