Cleaning Frenzy

The husband and I are furiously cleaning everything in the house today. It's gotten completely out of control with all of the traveling and crazy school and work schedules lately. Laundry was engulfing the second bedroom, so I started there while Sean did all the dishes and cleaned the kitchen. Then we began cleaning the second bedroom to make room for our living room chair so we can finally set up the Christmas tree in our living room! This will be our first Christmas tree together, so I'm kind of excited :) It's fake, but I cannot complain as his parents are loaning us one of their fake trees. With all of the Christmas traveling we will do, we really don't need a real tree this year. I'm just excited to decorate a tree for the first time in a couple of years. I remember that was one of the most saddening things about growing up and moving away from home, I didn't have all of my ornaments from when I was a kid and didn't get to decorate with my family anymore. Hopefully having a tree this year will make up for lost time :) All I know is that Sean's grandmother gave us boxes of decorations that I am so excited to look through! I never decorate for holidays or anything, I just don't have that knack for making things look pretty-but dagnabbit I'm gonna try!

This is what I wore to church today. We finally got some snow over the weekend, so out come my trusty boots! These are definitely fantastic for the winter. They are waterproof, tall enough to not let snow in at my ankles, and at only three dollars they are definitely one of my best purchases in the past few years. I also refuse to take my gloves off from here on out. I wore them in the church even and the pastor commented on them. I told him I even wear them in class sometimes because my hands are always so cold! Can't be without my gloves :)

Alrighty, It's time to get back to more cleaning, tree decorating...and probably homework..hope you all had a great weekend!
Is YOUR tree up yet? How did you decorate it? Any fun ideas for me? I'd love to know!
God Bless,

We don't put up a tree anymore. :( Sad day.

Why did you stop updating your teaching blog?

glad you got to decorate a tree again! I agree, that is one of the most fun parts of the holiday - seeing all your ornaments from decades past...
