Working up to that holiday feeling

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. You do not see any photos of my bread or fruit cake. That’s because they are still stuck in Raine’s phone waiting to be offloaded to my computer. But this has been another one of the Hip family’s believe-it-or-not days. Long story but let me just sum it up for you.

Raine’s driving lesson

  • Instructor shows up an hour late. No apology. Wasn’t expecting one.
  • He takes a wrong turn on the way to the practice grounds and wastes 1.5 hours getting back on track.
  • His car runs out of gas in the middle of the freakin’ highway!! How in the h … never mind, I asked the same question!!
  • Poor Raine has to push the car off the highway. Imagine that!

  • Practice grounds are in the middle of nowhere. Raine had had no lunch, no drink. She swears if she had eaten the food, she would’ve been poisoned instantly. And there was no way she was going to use their restroom either. Ew!
  • Lesson lasts 6 whole hours!

My work schedule

  • My college wants me back next semester. Yay!
  • I’m juggling my class schedule around Hip2bDaughter1’s and Hip2bDaughter2’s school hours. I want everything to line up snugly so we won’t have to be climbing trees. Easier said than done.
  • Rave teaching reviews from my last batch of students. It’s good to be loved 😉 .

In other news

  • Finally stopped procrastinating and changed my car tires. Ripped a freakin’ hole in my wallet too. Big tires cost more. Yeah, I know!
  • Eat. Drink. Laugh out loud. The holidays are here! I gotta start acting like it is.
  • I promise, those pix are coming. Wait for them it!

    thanks for the quick snapshot – sounds like Raine’s driving lesson was a nightmare; you couldn’t make up something that bad! Yay for teaching again next semester… I’m not teaching again in the spring, but just took on an additional 10 hours of research work, so I know how you are feeling about the juggling act!

    Looking forward to pics 🙂

    You sound like things are super hectic for you!! I sadly learned how much more tires for big cars cost. It hardly seems fair!! haha. I hope it didn’t cut in to your holiday budget too much though!! Great blog!
