Mmm mmm good - Yay, Oh Shoot!

Yesterday, my family celebrated my nephew's 11th birthday and then we spent a few hours cutting out (flour is our friend), baking, and decorating Christmas cookies! The flour was flying!

I think we made about 7 dozen cookies in total. Then, my niece helped me make a batch of rice krispie treats, which we colored red and green. So, it was fun!

Today, I was supposed to interview an elder, but she decided that she didn't know enough, so I spent the time trying to get caught up on email and finishing up some grades. Then, I actually finished writing the introductory chapter for my book proposal. Now, I just need to edit it and send it on.

My volleyball team won our match pretty handily tonight. It was fun. We lost the first game, though, because we made too many errors. It was fun!

The rest of this week, I need to identify other interviewees and then follow up on a couple of projects. I have a grant proposal (that I'm working on with three others) and two applications, all due in January, to work on.

Then, next week, I will be on a little holiday and plan to spend it hanging out with my son. Yay!

Girl you living life to the fullest ... you seem to always be on the go and it sounds like you are loving it.

Hi Daria,
Yes, I guess I am always on the go - you stay pretty busy, too, you know!

When you have a child, you sorta need to do things and when you're a single mom, so much more so.

Anyway, hope you're having a good week-end!
