Happy Holidays.

Hello!  Hello!

It's been a while but I am still around.  Lurking quietly, keeping the distance.  Much going on in life and trying to work through things with our heads above water.  So far so good but it has definitely been tough.  At the end of the day, K and I still have eachother and that is what matters most.  I have been working out an average of 3x/week at Carleton U.  I try to swim anywhere from 2-3kms a swim but sometimes have great difficulty because I try to walk in between and often overdo it.  6.7 kms is the longest I have done.  Swimming the next day was definitely a challenge.  haha.

On a Creative note, I have spent some time at Marlene's house making some jewellery for my Secret Santa at work as well as a few Christmas gifts for some random people I have to buy for.  One more day and I should be all done.  Who knew beading takes so much time.  Oh yes.  Right.  It's the design that takes forever.  Seems I keep picking the complicated ones.  Oopsies. 

As far as scrapping goes, nothing is happening right now.  I need to make some cards for the students at school because I am playing Santa Claus.  With french immersion, the kids are split between two classes.  .5 of the day, they are with Mrs. Dawson.  Then half to to Mme. McGinnis for french while others go to Mrs. Beaupre for english.  Seems all three teachers decided to have their students write to Santa and sent it to the Canada Post North Pole.  Nervous about form letters (are they form letters?  I have never seen one from there), I offered to be Santa and write them back.  Of course, they cards have to be homemade because, with all those elves, Santa would never, ever buy cards from the store.  *sigh*  how do I get myself into this stuff? 

Holidays are fast approaching AND I CAN'T WAIT.  For once, my school board has finally gotten it right.  Normally we finish work the Friday before Christmas and go back two weeks after that.   We are usually back around the 4th or 5th or, like it would have been this year, the 3rd. (that year was the worst).  When planning the school year calendar, the lightbulb seemed to have come on and someone said "why don't we work until the Thursday before Christmas ... the 23rd ... and have two weeks off from there, going back on January 10th?  HELLO!  How awesome is that?  I am so excited.  Hopefully some home renovations that first week and maybe a new scrapbooking room (yes!  I am still holding on to that pipe dream lol) and a trip to Hamilton in the new year.  Regardless of what I do, I just hope those two weeks pass by really slooowwwwlllyyyy.

In the meantime, I wish all of you who are reading this all the best for the holiday season.  May it brings love, laughter and happiness to you, your family and friends.  Happy Holidays.
