Days go by without my blogging, but that doesn't mean I haven't had things to say or created posts in my head. I just haven't done it.
So tonight I'm going to put into practice a new practice - the "do it for at least 5 minutes" system - because hey, 5 minutes is better than no minutes.
Let's begin. It's 9:08.
It's finally gotten cold, which makes me happy, and we have even had our first two snows. I use the word snows sort of loosely, since neither one resulted in much snow on the ground or a two-hour delay (it's true, teachers love delays just like students). The first storm was bigger than the last, and I do have some pictures to show (but I fear that would cut into my 5 minutes). It brought a huge smile to my face - I LOVE snow. The second snow, today's wasn't much of anything, but still, I LOVE snow. Did I mention that yet?
I have a firm policy that Christmas decorations can't go up before Thanksgiving, but I do confess, I saw that the neighbor's have started putting theirs up, and I am feeling a little wishful that next week were already here.
School has been good, but nuts. This week (and last) Student Council has been partnerning in a food drive with a local organization. Tomorrow night we're having our first annual dodgeball tournament - we have 15 teams signed up and hope to have a lot of spectators. It's going to be crazy, but ridiculously fun. We're also selling cotton candy tomorrow. I have no idea how to make cotton candy, but we rented the machine. Hopefully it works.
There has been some hard stuff for me recently, particularly pertaining to how I feel about church and some struggles I'm having with feeling alone, but that will have to wait until another post, because the clock has just struck 5 minutes.
Stay tuned for another 5 minute post where I continue catching up.
