..to be BUSY! i can't believe how much is going on. i am amazed by those that handle the holidays with children. i can't wait for next week to get here and what will be even better is the week after. we're right in the middle of holiday/work/school chaos. so much to do and not nearly enough time to relax and enjoy. matt and i have had to be very thoughtful in our plans to make sure we take time for ourselves to do some of the holiday traditions we love..
..this week has been full of final projects, final papers, and final days of classes. i'm SO SO SO grateful i'm done with school but i'm starting to eat those words with the classes i teach. i started teaching at UVU this semester and even though i LOVE it i didn't expect it to be so time consuming. in my free time i've been grading papers non stop and next week it'll just be worse as the students turn in their final 5 page papers and portfolios. WHAT. WAS. I. THINKING. when i put together my syllabus?? i'll have to put together something less time consuming next semester..
..matt had his last day of classes at the U for his first semester there today. YAY! only 3 (maybe 4) semesters left. he "loves" the commute he gets to take three times a week. luckily next semester he doesn't have to go up there at all. thank heavens for ONLINE courses! next week he'll be plugging away at his finals. send positive vibes into the universe for him okay?..
..for now here's to low key nights at home..and boy meets world dvd's from netflix..
