Taking a break before the busyness

I had a great night last night.   Danna (fellow teacher) and I went to St. George without any kids and just went shopping for a while.  It was so much fun to get away from my busy schedule for just a little while and just walk around some stores.  I found two cute sweaters for a decent price, some jeans for my girls for Christmas and a couple of things from Costco.  Mainly, I just enjoyed the time to spend with a friend without having a gigantic to do list.

Now for the busyness that is heading my way.  This weekend, I plan on getting the rest of my grades caught up, getting my laundry caught up, writing a start draft for the Christmas program so I can get it approved by the bishop, prepping for the next couple of weeks, etc.  

I'm going to a book signing tonight for a great friend from high school (Allyson Condie) who has published four books - the most recent is Freshman for President.  There is another CHS football game tonight, and I'm hoping beyond hope for a win, but Pine View is HUGE.

I have promised the girls that we are going to make cookies and breadsticks soon, so I will probably do that tomorrow - we are supposed to get some cold weather and it sounds really good to eat homemade soup and homemade breadsticks.  And best of all, my girls can help.  

My father-in-law has a bunch of peaches on his tree that I'm going to try my hand at drying - moments of work followed by hours of drying.  I think they will be good.

Finally, I have just finished looking into my status for getting my Master's and have realized that I'm just five classes away from getting my Master's (and subsequent raise) and Enoch and I think now is as good a time as any to get that done.  So I have to round up the letters of recommendation and get things in order to finish these classes and be done.  

Let the busyness begin.
