Tomorrow begins a long awaited day. The children finally return to school! This has been the longest Christmas Break, or Winter Break if you prefer, ever. To be sure, we did do a ton during the break. We drove down to North Carolina & Georgia to see my family. Then we caught a cold for the New Year, drove home and still had a few days left of break! The kids have spent the rest of their break, ahhh fighting. Super glad they go back tomorrow. Super. Glad. Of course this is tempered by the fact that the kids have an early dismissal on Wed and are off of school on Friday --and Monday.
What I don't think anyone can complain about is the amazing weather we've had up here. It's a Christmas dream come true for me, one who doesn't care for winter. I'm not going to focus on the inevitable below zero temps to come. Is it too early to countdown to Spring? --the days are getting longer! Only a little over a month and it will stop being dark out at 5pm. WooHoo!
While we were driving home from our trip, to pass the time I was thinking up a motto for me for 2012. I don't know that much rhymes with twelve, so my rhymes are a bit off. Here is what I came up with:
Things are gonna gell in 2012!
Don't Dwell in 2012!
Life is Swell in 2012!
or What the Hell, it's 2012!
