A typical xmas tree in florida...LOL... I will take palm trees over snow days anytime..tho I do miss the snow this time of year..but then I remember my days of living in Buffalo (the snow capital of the world) and remember walking through it just to make it to classes and being snowed in for days and having some serious cabin fever..The only month I never saw it snow in Buffalo was July... that made me nuts.. so I guess I will just take my lil palm trees and be grateful.
Today already started off on the wrong foot sort of speak. My daughter woke up at her regular time for school ( 5:30am) and asked to stay home to finish a major history project that she has been busting her tushie on for two weeks now. She has only had two weeks when the rest of the students have had since the beginning of the year. This teacher wants it to be in book form when they are finished. He wants them bound like books... hmmmmmm now her school is located in one of the most wealthiest areas in central florida...we DO NOT live in such an area...we are at the opposite end of that spectrum. To have a book bound costs a small fortune...so today we must go and do that once we buy the ink needed to print everything out. I feel for the kid. I told her she could stay home..I jsut did not want her to feel embarrassed by the teacher for not having it completed.
We did not get done everything I wanted...too lazy at this point... the weather has gone from quite chilly (for florida) to it's usual hot and humid...perfect weather to catch a cold...so I just stay under the covers and watch football games and such.
I still have christmas presents to get...I have already made some that I must say came out nice...but still have many to buy...balancing finances will be the real trick. Well I am off to go figure out what to do next..I hope you all have a FANTASTIC monday!!!
