We made it! I’m SO thankful that it’s finally Friday.
Here are five details from the week!
one. I was a little congested at the beginning of the week so I revved up my oil diffuser to see if it would help. I did a blend of two drops each of peppermint, eucalyptus, and tea tree oils.
I put the diffuser close to me as I was cooking dinner and then later as I was either watching tv or on my computer, and I really think it helped! I’m definitely going to keep that blend in mind when cold season really hits!
two. Tonight, we have our “redo” Joe Nichols concert. If you remember me talking about the first concert we went to with him last month, he was so messed up that he couldn’t even sing clearly. He could hardly stand up, and he cut the concert an hour short. We had a blast at the concert though even if the singing made us cringe. Good friends make it worth it!
Anyways, he’s back tonight for a free concert to “make it up to his fans” and “show them how it’s really supposed to be done.” Anything has to be better than how he was before. I’m excited for another fun night out with good friends! 🙂
three. One of the best feelings to me is having presents wrapped under a decorated tree.
I just have one more person on my list to buy a gift for, and I’m finally feeling like I’m caught up!
four. My parents got us a quarter of beef for our second anniversary, and they came down Thursday night to deliver it to us! (Hello yummy meals in our future! Thanks mom and dad! 🙂 ).
We went out to dinner at Umi’s (We’re all obsessed with that place in my family!), and it was such a treat to get to see my parents during the week: a much more exciting Thursday night than the usual!
five. My students have been a new level of crazy this week, so I’m glad we’re in the home stretch to get to winter break! We just started our Tuck Everlasting project in my Language Arts classes, which is the Trial of Mae Tuck. Students are assigned jobs of being judge, lawyers, witnesses, or jury members, and they have to use the book (textual evidence) to prepare their trial work over the next couple of days. Our trial will be on Tuesday in class to determine the verdict. My students last year loved this, so fingers crossed that all goes smoothly again this year!
Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy your weekend!
Question of the Day: Do you enjoy wrapping presents?
