I Could Really Use...

A day of Christmas movies
My nose to stop running
Time for holiday baking
A day of shopping for the last minute gifts

Instead I'm...

Grading
Recording scores
Writing study guides
Writing finals

I've been wondering...

If the people of Newtown turn on their Christmas lights
How their staff could ever walk back into that school
And what in the world Christmas will be like for them this year

It worries me...

That all I can think about is early retirement
Or a long vacation

What I really want...

Rum slush
A nap
Time to read something for fun

Oh...and an iPad! (Tiny Town High are you listening?)

I read somewhere that the decorations came down. I think the kids who survived need a sense of "normalcy, but then again, I can't even begin to imagine what those parents are going through.
Hope you get your rum slush soon! :)
1 more "get up" for me! :)

I too read where they had taken down the lights. I also wonder about those kids who lost a sibling--will they still want Santa to visit or will they esp. need him this year? I hope folks step up to help the families with surviving children pull off some sort of Christmas; otherwise in a sense, the killer wins again.

I felt different returning to school. I can't begin to fathom what they would feel like.
We have made some changes.

I don't know what rum slush is, but it sounds good! I could use some too. My list is much like yours.
