a successful first week of winter break

I'm starting to understand why these students love winter break so much. How can you hate waking up whenever you feel like it, or getting ready for the day whenever you feel like it? Yeah, I don't know either. There have been a few days this week where I've felt really productive.  Like Wednesday when I baked cookies all morning, made a crock pot dinner and cleaned up the house. Or when I did alllll the laundry, like everything was put away and there was no more that needed to be done--I think this has only happened a handful of times in the past five years. I like this whole not working thing, however it's kind of a burden when you have bills to pay.

I've been able to work on my crocheting, obviously, I finished up my Christmas orders, and have had time to watch some Christmas movies.  I'm in love with this time of year.

Also, yesterday as I was driving home it started to rain and the thought occurred to me: rain in the winter is the Phoenix form of snow.  Which then got me to thinking about how if that rain was actually snow I would probably freak out and not be able to drive, for the fear of driving on the slippery ground. And then I thought about how all the other drivers around me would probably do the same since they freak out the tiniest bit when rain starts to fall.  Arizona drivers are the worst I tell ya!  Anyways, it rained a lot last night, and I can feel the chilly air seeping through these horribly insulated walls that I'm surrounded by.  At least its like I'm outside within the comfort of my own home. Riiight?!
