The Countdown

I am officially ready for 2 weeks out of school!!! Let me catch you up on this semester at school which would not have run so smooth if my gut wasn’t happy.

It has been a little while since I taught Texas history so when there were some personnel changes at school, I was moved back to 7th grade classes. Ahhhhhhh! I love Texas history but I really, really, really enjoy teaching early US History because I can relate it to my semi-annual trip to Washington D.C. with 20ish hormonal, crazy, sweet & salty teenagers. I don’t mind the move because I have taught it before & just dove in head first. I just feel like my brain has not caught back up after the transition so a 2 week break is more than welcome. 


My 2 volleyball teams both won district championships!!! That is 3 in a row for this proud coach! šŸ†

We are in a tough basketball district & one of my teams is 5 & 0, pulling out a nice final game before Christmas break last night!

I love what I do! I don’t even consider it work but I’m looking forward to family, my babies & my husband without anywhere to be in the evenings or any homework to do.


Speaking of homework, this was my peaceful view after a wacky weekend. I stared at the Christmas tree while I was trying to write my 2nd final paper of the day on Sunday & it must have given me inspiration because I finished it & my lesson plans faster than I usually finish just my lesson plans. Now I am just waiting on my grades. This semester was a tough workload but I survived. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! I am 33% of the way towards my masters degree!


Overall, my gut would generally react poorly to so much going on & so much extra stress but enter Entivyo stage left! This medicine, coupled with Xeljanz, has been a life changer for me! Before these all stars came along, even small stress stressed me beyond anything my gut could handle, but I am happy to report, I have not experienced any symptoms of colitis at all!!!!!!

So, with all that being said, the countdown to December 22nd begins! I am sooooo ready for crackling fires, baking goodies, Christmas movies with the boys, no homework for me or Jaxson, no games to play, time with my family & my hubbys’, no where to be & no stinkin alarm set! Merry Christmas to me!!!!! & happy Christmas season to you all!! May your stress be low & may you experience awesome blessings this holiday season.
