Snowed In

No news on the adoption front right now. We're currently answering a bunch of questions about ourselves and filling out paperwork.

-------

We just finished the largest grading session of the semester: end of term portfolios. I'm so happy to be done with them. Imagine reading 2000 pages and having to comment on every single page... It's grueling. I have approximately 88 students, and each one turns in about 20-25 pages of writing at the end of the semester. But -- it's the only pitfall of the job. Otherwise, I love what I do. And now, it's break time!!!!

Unfortunately, we are snowed in! The sky finally stopped threatening and made good on its promises.



I really dislike snow most of the time. I don't like traveling in it, and I prefer to be warm. I hate bundling up every time I want to leave the house.

But -- when we don't have to go anywhere and work is done for the semester, it can snow all the time. It's quite relaxing and pretty to just stay inside and look out the window.

So, as long as I get one day to Christmas shop this week, I'm okay with the snow.

Hi Stephanie! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love it when I stumble across a new blog and make a new virtual friend in adoption. I have added your blog to my roll as well.

Hi! I came across your blog through the Stirrup Queen's blogroll. My husband and I are getting ready to start the adoption process as well, and I was looking for others who were/are going through the same thing. Anyways, I just wanted to comment and say hello!
