That's What I Call a Break!

Prior to the Christmas break from school, Sissy got the stomach bug that had/has been going around. She threw up all day and into the night on Wednesday. Thursday was a 2 hour early dismissal day and even though she said she felt better, I kept her home. Friday was their first day of Christmas break. 

After the break, they went back on January 2, which was a Thursday. Then, we had snow, so there was no school on Friday. Then, we had more snow and the temperatures plummeted into the negatives, so no school Monday, no school Tuesday and this morning was a 2 hour delay. 

We've had quite the holiday break! I've really enjoyed the time off, but now my routine is so out of sorts, it'll be February before I'm back on track. 

The kids had a nice Christmas - made even nicer by the Evil Twin's co-family (what I call his co-workers, because they are more like family to us). They had "Santa" deliver a bunch of candy and gifts for Buddy and Sissy. It was awesome! 

I spent all my free time indulging in my favorite luxury: reading! I think I read 5 or 6 books total. My poor Kindle is ready for a holiday, I think. I love that thing! Especially when it's loaded with FREE reading material. Yes, I'm such a tightwad, I search for the free stuff and I enjoy every minute of it! 

Now, I need to get back to my regular routine. I think I'll start in earnest on Monday. Might as well enjoy the rest of the week and weekend being in a state of confusion and the fuzzy "reading brain" (I tend to get so wrapped up in a book, it's hard for me to switch gears to the "real world" sometimes). LOL.

Hooligans, enjoy your Wednesday! Stay warm and be kind!
