Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from the Brangenberg household. All the gifts have been unwrapped, dad is sleeping on the couch, son is reading his new book and daughter has gone to celebrate with her boyfriend's family. Dinner for us will be this evening so that daughter and her boyfriend can join us.

We actually had a dusting of snow for Christmas morning. Here in middle Tennessee that is unusual. It was nice to see. Here is to hoping that all of you have a blessed day.

Days are just flying now ......

I can't believe it has been so long since I have written here. December is just moving at top speed - Christmas is 9 days away and I still have a lot of sewing to do. David's last day with the students is today. Tomorrow is his last day at Wright Middle. I went with him yesterday and got a good amount of packing done. It has not helped that they had snow days Monday and Tuesday this week. Rachel is with him today to hopefully finish packing up. We are hoping to move everything to Gra-Mar Middle tomorrow. The animals are coming home for at least the break. So tonight we will start playing host to: 2 breaded dragons, 1 trantula, 2 geckos, 1 plated lizard, 1 skink and one other animals that I can't recall right now. The neon blue lobster and the snake both died recently. I need to make spots for them so they aren't in the way and the dog can't get them.

Are you ready for Christmas? I am about half way there. We have bought all we are going to and now it is time for me to shine. I wish I could get motivated sooner but oh well. Most go for now but I wish all of you a wonderful day.

Changes are coming .....

My dear sweet hard working hubby has been offered a job at a different school in the same city. The difference you ask...... it is to teach 5th grade. He had been moved from 5th to 7th this year and I have known that he has not been happy. He really truly loves teaching 5th. So when one of his old principals call asking if you are interested in filling a void she will have starting in Jan 2011 he jumped at it. It sounds like his current principal will allow it. So this winter break will be spent moving his classroom and his classroom animals. It is on the northeast side of Nashville so he will have a longer commute each day and he will not be able to carpool as much as this semester but he will be happy.

On a different note, it looks like ds will have a job sometime this month. Now they are saying another ten days. The price you pay for federal jobs I guess. His car gave me a lot of issues the last two days so I hope we are not looking at a big repair bill down the road. Neither he or us have the money for it.

2011 is going to start being interesting right up the bat.
