It's hard Becci. I was up for the first week on the scales. Not the way I wanted to start the year.

Well the dentist went as expected. The hygienist was young though. I didn't ask her age but I mentioned 1992 as being the last time we had xmas at my grandparents and then I wondered if she'd even been alive then. Oh well. Stopped at JCPenney afterward and got some expensive hair stuff for Abby's hair and then had supper at Chili's and came home. Nothing exciting.

Abby has a party planned for the 2 of us tonight. Hubby will go out as usual. She is excited and looking forward to it.

I saw your post on the Massachusetts team.

Monday I did grocery shopping, recycled some xmas lights at Lowes (Home Depot wouldn't take them), and got a case for my new camera at Target. Nothing exciting.

Today I am bringing Abby to the dentist this afternoon. I'm dreading that more than she is I think. I know she doesn't brush her teeth enough and I'm going to get a parent lecture about not doing enough to enforce it.

Sunday was quiet here. I did some reading. Nothing exciting.

Glad you had a nice time in Salem. I would be interested in seeing the stones.

Heading back to the drs this morning. I woke up with a rash covering about a third of my body. I am so sick of whatever this is! I'll keep you posted.

We had a nice day in Salem. After going to the ham radio store we went to a place called America's Stonehedge and walked around in the woods looking at old stones that are positioned to match the sun during different times of the year. There are some caves and other things there too. A bit of history and exercise. We didn't get home until after 7pm after making a couple more stops on the way home. And he didn't buy any ham radio stuff. Just got some info so it wasn't an expensive day either.

Hope you are feeling better.

I can't remember the last time I crashed like this. I have slept 30 of the last 48 hours. I guess I needed it, but my body aches now from being immobile. I am feeling better. Just dealing with a headache now which I suspect is from lack of caffeine. Hopefully this will be remedied soon as I suck down some caffeinated tea.

Have a great trip to Salem!

Friday was a good day to stay in bed. I spent as much time as possible on the couch myself. I think a lot of us crashed once the holiday was finally over.

Today I am driving my husband up to Salem, NH so he can visit a ham radio outlet store. It's his newest hobby. There are some other stores up there too so we will stop at Target at least and I'm not sure what else.

Christmas was good. Last night I wasn't feeling well though and ended up spending most of today in bed. This head cold is kicking my butt.

Sounds like your PD days work differently than the ones in Abby's school district.

Hope you had a good holiday. Aaron is working today. I'm home with Abby.

We are allotted 3 full PD days per year. Last year was the first year we got them per our contract. It's funny that they had the one in January scheduled last year and we had a snow day so they made us come back at the end of the school year for a full day after the kids were done. Stupid!

I hope Santa was good to you all this Christmas. Enjoy your time off as well.

That is crazy about the 7th being a professional day for you. Very ridiculous. Our teachers tend to get them in the spring and fall I think. I know there is one near Halloween and I think another one in March. Plus every Wednesday is a half day for kids and the teachers have district-wide trainings. They rotate between 4 schools on where they are hosted.

Hope you are having a Merry Christmas Janine and enjoying the vacation time!

I would love to have quiet time at work to get some things done.

For some reason our school committee decided to give us the 7th as a professional day. So we have 9 days off and then come back for 2 days with kids before the kids have another day off and we had pd. How ridiculous is this?! My students will be a mess when we return for a week or two.

Hoping to finish my shopping today. Most everything is wrapped. It is easy to do when you buy gift cards and Groupons.

Aaron's working the 26th and I am working the 2nd. Fits us enough I guess. We always say that Christmas is my holiday and New Years is his. We do things my way on one and his way on the other. I am kind of envious that he is working on the 26th though. Work is going to be a ghost town and he will probably be able to get a lot done. The 2nd sounds like it is going to be busier and less quiet. Oh well. At least we get the 2 extra days (24th and 29th) this year because of the electrical project. That is a nice savings of vacation time right there.

I think the day after Christmas kids should stay home and play with their Christmas gifts. Not get dragged to work with mom and dad. We are working it out that I will stay home on the 26th and Aaron will stay home on the 2nd. The rest of the time we should be covered. We have some extra days off because of the construction happening at the library.

Today is about getting organized for the holiday. I need to start wrapping things and hopefully will do that today. First I am delivering holiday baskets to needy families in town. It is a yearly activity for me and I always look forward to it. My niece has been my partner most of the years. The last two years she hasn't been able to make it, but this year she joins me again. I am thrilled!

As for the aide, I don't understand that work ethic so it bugs me.

Hopefully you will figure out the work schedule. I will assume Abby has the same days off as me. Take your daughter to work days coming up?

I am nervous about the time off. When I have time to think, it is bad. I am hoping to take my greats and my friend's kids for activities. It will help keep my mind busy.

That is ridiculous about your aide and the time off!

I may take Dec. 26th and January 2nd off. My husband has already said he plans to work the 26th so I have no choice to take that as a vacation day. Not sure what to do about the 2nd. I think I COULD work it, but it's hard to come in for just one day and feel productive. Still debating.

Glad the performance went well.

I was fine with the new aide until I heard he was complaining about being in my room. He said it was too much work, he told the principal and the new teacher that he wanted back in her room, and he has taken 14 days off already. I have a job to do and I take it seriously. I cannot worry about his nonsense and be an effective teacher.

I thought you were liking your aide this year. Sorry to hear that it's not going well.

We have a new principal this year at Abby's school and she is much nicer than the one we had last year. Very warm. I think her contract will get renewed certainly. We had a great performance last night and I heard people praising her efforts.

I have a meeting with the principal today to look over my paperwork for relicensure. It don't expect anything unusual, but he's not my favorite guy right now. I do not find his favoritism of my male aide to be of help to anyone besides my aide. I am pretty sure if I was on my 14th absence for the school year I would have been spoken to already.

You threw the cup out the window?? Oh gross! LOL! The things we deal with when we have kids.

I average 6-7 hours of sleep per night usually. I didn't get home until after 7pm myself last night. Hoping to go straight home today after I get Abby but I have a lot to do at home.

We have a dept. lunch today in Amherst. Not my favorite thing to do but I'm doing it.

It's going to be a long day for me! Not only could I not sleep (got about 3 hours), but I have my women's club meeting later. No rest. If it gets really bad, I may leave at my prep and try to sleep a little. Hopefully this headache will be short-lived.

That happened one year when I had my niece and nephew. I ended up giving him an empty coffee cup I found on the floor so he could pee and throw it out the window. We still tell that story and it was about 12 years ago.

I was just grateful that Abby didn't need the bathroom while we were stuck in traffic. I saw one mom take her 2 boys, one at a time, out of the vehicle and down someone's driveway. I assume they went pee by a fence somewhere. I felt so bad for her!

I'm not going to make it to Festival of Trees today. Abby and I didn't get home until after midnight last night. I'm done with Springfield for now. We got off the I-91 exit around 7pm last night and didn't make it into Forest Park for Bright Nights until after 9:30pm!

Didn't see her regular pediatrician. Saw a different one that we have seen a few times before. She doesn't think Abby has strep thankfully but did the overnight test (not the quick one) anyway to be sure. Probably just a cold. She recommended the usual fluids, rest, and Advil.

Abby was supposed to have a daddy day today and go out but with a runny nose she is feeling like she going to want to stay home. :-(

Sunday is the last day for the Festival of Trees, but I believe Bright Nights goes through the beginning of January.

Hope Abby feels better!

Looks like Sunday is the last day for it. I don't know if we will make it or not. Abby's sick now. She's hopefully going to school this morning and then going to the doctor this afternoon. I'm hoping she can last through lunch. Got her a 1:15pm appointment at the doctor's office. It was the best I could do.

Well surprised, Abby wants the Forest Park thing to be a mother-daughter trip so I might do Saturday after all. I will see about the tree thing. Still not sure. I am not a big fan of driving in Springfield.

I'll take a look. I need to get focused on the weekend here pretty quickly. We should do either Look Park or Bright Nights this weekend and whichever one we don't do we should do next weekend. Can't do Saturday night though unless we go early because hubby has a standing commitment that night. So need to figure out how to juggle it. I'll probably try to piece it together for either Friday night or Sunday night.

I saw on the other forum that OSV was cold. I hope you were able to enjoy it too.

Janine- What are the hours for that generally? I went to the website but couldn't find pricing for the admission or what hours. I do see that they will validate your parking at least.

We are doing OSV this weekend and then will want to do Bright Nights at some point. Maybe we could combine Festival of Trees with our Bright Nights trip.

Abby will also want to do the lights and trains at Look Park as well.

Heading to the Festival of Trees tonight. I am happy to have been a part of sponsoring two trees this year. If you haven't gotten there to see the trees, I hope you do. It is a treat to see!

When she sets it up let me know. I would be happy to go support her.

Cool!

She is setting up her new studio slowly. She said she didn't sell everything that she sent to Snow Farm so she may have a studio sale at her new place soon with whatever is leftover plus some other pieces. She is moving her studio from Hatfield to Florence I think (Nonotuck Street). Hoping to see the new space before xmas. :-)

I bought most of my items in the 2nd gallery. I am not sure if I saw stuff specifically by Cycle Pottery, but there were so many good items in there. I bought 2 pieces for myself and 2 to give away.

Glad you had a good time at the Odyssey. I have a couple of co-workers who live near there. One in particular that comes to mind who might have gone to the event if she was in town. I will ask her.

I am glad you made it to Snow Farm. I was sure you would have a good time there. Did you buy any pottery in the 2nd gallery? Curious if you found the stuff by Cycle Pottery or not. I supported her as much as I could, but supported other artists too. I hope she did well on her sale.

Yesterday I went to the Odyssey in South Hadley for a special author event. It was a lot of fun talking with some authors I have gotten to admire over the years. I bought several presents for family. Then I went to Snow Farm in Williamsburg and bought some more presents and even made my own blown glass ornament. I will give that to a friend as well. It was a lot of fun!

When I went to the Wellesley to see Patricia Polacco, I was surprised by how small the bookstore was. It wasn't a B&N, but reminded me very much of the Odyssey. It was enjoyable anyway.

Sounds like you had a good time with the McGuire event.

Mulen read first. She read a small piece of her "Miss Emily" book. She lives in Shutesbury I guess, probably in the January Hills section (which is practically Amherst). She has worked as a kindergarten teacher she said. I think "Miss Emily" is geared for mostly an older audience but I could be wrong. She spent some time with some other kids but it was over Abby's head.

Demas is a professor at Mount Holyoke, you are correct. I sent her an email apologizing for Abby brushing her off. I didn't realize that there was more than one "Trouble" book and she subtly corrected me in her response.

As you know by now we made it to the Rosemary Wells event. I'll post about that in the Massachusetts team so I don't have to repeat myself so much. The pool at the hotel was out of order which upset me. The store itself was fairly small and the children's area was extremely crowded of course. The Holyoke store is much bigger.
