Last week of 2010

Well good grief. It has been a month since I posted last. I finished my college classes and begin my second semester of methods in a few weeks.
The preschool Christmas party was fun, the kids all had little gifts to open and lots of great snacks. We are getting 2 new students when we come back from Christmas break. The second semester is always so busy at the preschool. I kind of do not look forward to it. It can be stressful with me going to school and trying to juggle everything.
We have been doing ok with Karl being laid off. He has been doing some odd jobs, so everything has worked out ok. We are hoping he gets to go back to work in a couple of weeks.
We had a nice Christmas. The month flew by. We did get out to see Christmas lights with Josh and we had a Christmas party with his extended family a few days before Christmas. Then on Christmas my dad came up and spent Christmas with us. My mom stayed home. She is not feeling well. She is having some pain in her leg. I do not know why yet. We will be having another Christmas party with Karl's immediate family on New Year's. Then Monday I go back to work (3rd).
I cannot believe a New Year is almost here. Oh and since I haven't posted in so long, we had a puppy dumped in our driveway. We decided to keep her and named her Meisha. She is going to be a big dog, but is adorable. I think she was only about 4 weeks old when she was dumped and we had had for for 3 weeks now.
Josh got a Wii for Christmas and some games to go with it. It is funny to watch them play it. I am going to post a picture of Christmas and one if Meisha. The picture of Meisha was taken on Christmas Day, so it is current.
This week I am geting my haircut (wed.). I cannot wait. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2011!!

Hi Lori! I'm so glad to read that you had a good Christmas. Meisha is too cute for words! I think it's absolutely wonderful that you've decided to keep her. No doubt in my mind that she now has a wonderful family to love her. I will pray that Karl finds work soon. I hope 2nd semester goes smooth for you. Big hugs!

HI Lori, how did your hair cut turn out? is it short or long? probably not as short as mine! LOL! Meisha is so cute. We used to have a dog named Meisha.
I'm sorry to hear about your mom, Hope she is feeling better really soon. The Wii is fun, we used to have one but I gave it away after Steve hit our dog in the head with the remote by accident.
Now she is afraid she is gonna be hit in the head all the time. Keep the pets away! she jumped up as Steve went down with the remote while bowling. Good to hear that Karl is getting some odd jobs, hope he gets back to works soon! big hugs
