Back to Reality

Well today was the last day of winter break.  It was nice to have a Monday to relax finish up those things we hadn't manage to accomplish in the last two weeks and best of all only having to change from one pair of pajamas into another ;)

We were super busy today. But we also got to sleep in (read 7:45) so it was bearable.

I straightened up the craft/guest room and found a home for all the table cloths my mom gave me for our gorgeous new dining room table.  I also found places for all the odds and ends craft materials that we accumulated over the month of December and my bright idea to "make all Christmas gifts".

We took Tuffy from looking like this: (John bathes him and I cut his hair with some assistance from John, but I'm learning its easier if i just do most of it myself.)

This picture makes him look much cleaner and much less scruffy then he actually was!

To now looking like this!  Such a handsome westie! And "Oh so cute and FLUFFY!" (name that movie)
And this picture really doesn't do justice to just how clean he is now and oh how soft his fur is!

We also found our desk.  It had been lost under a pile of stuff that was at least a foot high.  We're not quite done yet, but we made a sizable dent!  I can see the wood of most of the desk now!

I also gave John a hair cut, played the wii, and John went grocery shopping.

Then this evening we got a phone call from one of the sweetest ladies we know.  She's hosting a girl from China who's going to work at the school with us.  She was having issues getting her wifi working.  We went over to help.  I thought for sure I'd be able to figure it out... but then we got there and the girl's computer looked normal, but everything was written in Chinese!!! Yeah... I don't have all the menu's memorized on windows, nor am I that proficient without being able to read the tips and help screens. However, the sweet lady had a computer of her own so we logged onto it and I was able to help her get connected.  I was pretty excited that I was able to figure out a way to help her.  I'm excited to have her in my classroom and have her share her wealth of knowledge with my students.

So, as you can see, we had a very productive day.  Especially since I've now blogged two days in a row!  Go me!

Two post in two days! Off to a great start. I'm glad you were able to get a lot done. And the before and after pics of your doggie is too cute!

Wow! You got a lot accomplished for your last day off! I don't have to go back until Friday since we didn't finish school until the 23rd, but my only plans are watching a lot of Gilmore Girls and working out when I get ambitious!
