What, wait! December already?

    I've had my head down pushing through the days, determined to find something to love about each of my students. My children continue to make me laugh and grow in appreciation for them each and every day. I even got to go on a real date with my husband last night. We mall crawled and just talked and chatted uninterrupted for almost 3 hours. It was not nearly enough time.
     And it was then that I noticed the fancy trappings of the holidays which have engulfed every place I travel. Last night I walked the whole mall and several other stores and bought not one thing. I passed millions of dollars worth of merchandise and did not pull out my money once. The few things that caught my eye were out of my price range and the rest, blah.
     Don't worry, I'm not in a "Bah Humbug" mood. I just don't feel the need to buy junk disguised as gifts. I'm excited about putting up the Christmas tree today for the earliest time in YEARS. Almost a full 3 weeks before Christmas is a huge accomplishment. I just can't believe the year is winding up and it will be 2012 in a few short weeks. I am awed by how quickly time moves as I get older.
