Reading my friend Becky’s blog inspired me to recount what I was able to sqeeze in over my three week break from teaching. It was definitely a highly enjoyable time full of fun times, forming of great memories, and even a little R&R. Do not feel any pressure to read this, just humor me. I think I’m mostly posting it so I can remember my break as I look back. Because I barely remember it now!
12/15 Break begins! Spend the day at Jillian’s with HerShe and then drive up to SB with J-Jax and Dani to the open mic night for JP and Garth
12/16 JP and Garth get married!! Wonderful day with friends celebrating!
12/17 Spend the day with Bekah, Raleigh, and Lauren and then go to Stephanie’s game that night! Head back to LA
12/18 Relax! Christmas celebration with Patrick
12/19 Disneyland with Acosta 🙂
12/20 Relaxed and went to work for a few hours.
12/21 Drive to San Diego to see Mistie, Jess, and the whole Boyd-Blomquist clan!
12/22 Ice Skating with the FCA girls and late game night fun
12/23 My sister finally comes back home!!!! Lots of time with her: hair cuts, Starbucks, pedicures, etc.
12/24 Christmas Eve with my mom and Jim out in the O.C.
12/25 Christmas craziness: mom and Jim in the morning, quick trip to the airport to go see dad in AZ
12/26-12/31 Arizona! Lots of reading, hanging out with friends (Courtney, Sarah, Elizabeth, Jen, Jenny, Mistie, Jaan, Wayne, a little bit of Desi and Meg, Tara, etc.), and tons of Boggle with dad (full statistics available upon request)
12/31-1/5 Trisha in town! NYE with Bekah, Jamie, and friends, time on the beach, time with friends, time with my mentee Rosalyn for her birthday, Hollywood site seeing, Universal Studios excursion, dinner and time with mom and Jim, and a failed game night attempt (the rain deterred many visitors, but we still had fun wii-ing it up!)
1/6-1/7 Weekend to remember (i.e. last weekend of freedom for awhile) RELAX!!! Clean, organize, work out, etc.
And, so it goes! Back into the routine and having a tough time adjusting. Students are back with a vengeance and keep me laughing and on my toes. God bless ’em!
