Sadly, I realized Tuesday when flipping through my planner that I have four papers due the week after Thanksgiving. One Monday, one Tuesday, one Wednesday, and one Thursday. I mentioned before that I was spending some quality time with my computer and the library, and that hasn't really changed since I last posted. As I just finished a homework break that included shopping at ZGallerie.com (I had a gift card!) and playing with the dogs, I figured I will just round out the break with a little blogging. Here's a quick list of what I've been thankful for the past few days...
Christmas lights. Bill and I had a gift card to Target, so we bought some lights to go outside (in addition to those we bought last year - you always need way more than you expect!) and for our tree. We both used different kinds of lights growing up with our families, so we broke tradition and decided on a new style of lights together. We didn't get a tree last year, because of Sensei, but this year we are definitely going to have one. We'll just put a baby gate up! But buying Christmas lights, and just thinking about decorating (which I can officially begin to do one week from yesterday!) gets me so excited for the holiday season. With so much going on, it's been hard to think about the holidays without thinking "OH MY GOSH I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO BEFORE THEN," but last night really got me in the mood! Targets $1 section ornament collections also helped :)

|It really is a miracle.|
There's loads more to be thankful for in my life, obviously, but I do need to head back to the wonderful world of Infant/Toddler Language Development. See yall soon!
