Monday, Monday

Oh, Monday.

This Monday means back to work after a whole week off. And this week off was delightful.

Things I did this past week:

Slept in. A lot.
Took Christmas card photos on the beach with the fluffy boy
Here's an outtake

Tried to catch up on NaNo (I'm close)
Saw Like Crazy
Made my triumphant return to yoga
Took some naps
Had fat kid dinner with my parents
Hung out with my parents' dogs (who ripped my necklace off my neck, they were so excited)
Had Asian Thanksgiving dinner with the ILs
Read two books
Had mimosa pajama brunch with my girls

I love this picture

Saw two former (underage) students at a bar
Ignored my inbox
Lounged on the couch instead of Black Friday-ing

And that's about it.

The main focus has really been trying to catch up on NaNoWriMo. I made some major progress, and I still might finish, even after getting off to a rocky start. Just a few more days...I hope I can do it.

Now I have three (frantic) weeks of work and I have three GLORIOUS weeks off!

I hope all of you who celebrated had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I hope those of you who are participating are having a successful NaNoWriMo. And I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday.


  1. Sounds like you had a terrific holiday! I want to do the PJ mimosa brunch with the girls. FUN.

  2. Ooh, you've done A LOT! :) And you get 3 whole weeks off for your winter break? Why can't I work in YOUR school district?! Just 2 weeks on my end, but I'll take anything I can get. :)

  3. When you wrote "rocky start" I saw "rock star." :) What a great holiday! And so weird to see your former students at a bar! Sometimes when I go back home, I see teachers at bars, and depending on who it is, I always feel like I should be hidden away in case they were to give me an assignment. :)

  4. Sounds like a great week to me. Good luck with NaNo! :)

  5. Sounds like a nice, relaxing holiday! Hope your Monday back was kind!

  6. Yay for breaks! And we have three full weeks until we get two off (how do you get three?!?!?!). It will be a challenge.

    Sounds like you had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Good for you!

  7. G-boy is adorbs. So jealous of your awesome dog.

  8. Gunner is the cutest. I think if we ever got him and Evie in a room together, the universe would collapse from all the cute.
