Well, the holidays are over, and while our celebration was very low key, we all had a wonderful time eating, drinking, and just hanging out.
Since I will be student teaching soon and I had to quit my job (not to mention what a mess the auto industry is in), gift giving was kept to a minimum. Money will be very tight for the next 11 weeks, but it is all worth it. When I am done student teaching, I will get myself back on the sub list.
Last semester was very stressful. I really didn't finish much knitting (I started tons of things, but didn't finish them). It was hard on the mind, body, and spirit to work full time and take 10 credit hours (note to school: this program is too intense for people who work, and shouldn't be advertised as a good idea for people with jobs).
I have been doing some pretty hard core relaxing the past few days. I haven't even gotten out of my PJs most days. I hope that your holiday has been as restful.
