Hello from the Trenches of Final Exams

I will return to the blog world (and the human world) after semester grades are submitted tomorrow at 3 pm.  In the meantime, a red pen will serve as an extension to my right hand, and while I'm grading said finals (and various other assignments I'm behind on), I will be simultaneously stressing about the fact that I haven't finished writing Christmas cards, still have shopping to do, and have to get my house in order before I leave for Georgia on Tuesday.

Hopefully by tomorrow my desk will no longer look like this:


Hope everyone is having a less chaotic holiday season!

Yikes!! Good luck friend. Just think of the light at the end of the tunnel. If it makes you feel any better, I have soooo much to do too. It isn't even funny.

And thank you so much for the sweet comment yesterday - made my day! Your blog inspires me because I love what you do for those kids and the convicts. That sounds funny, but you know what I mean.

XOXO Come on 3 p.m.!

I think you do a fantastic job with how busy you are. I don't know how you do it. I hope you are able to complete everything and still have time to relax before Christmas. x
