December around the corner

Oh my gosh. I have no motivation to do anything. I have two teensy assignments left until I'm done with my master's degree, and I'm trying to figure out how to squeeze them into tomorrow so I don't have to do them tonight...

Today was a fun day. It's nice to have the kids working on exam review guides because they're quiet and I can see that they're concentrating. I also like to see them working because I can tell how much they really learned over the course of the year. I hope that they do as well as I think they will.

In other news, weight watchers changes their points system. I don't get it. I'm going to my meeting on Thursday, so I'm hoping that it becomes a very long meeting and that she explains everything. Somehow fruits are all 0 points now and I get 29 points in a day instead of 24 and 49 points for the week instead of 36? I don't understand...I guess I should try counting points again instead of eating whatever I want and wishing for a loss on the scale (although I'm getting really good at wishing, apparently...)

At school today, after lunch, I was walking to my classroom for study hall and the guidance counselor told me the kids weren't ready for me to come in yet. I was like, "Sorry, what?" He said they were setting everything up and weren't done yet...I had no idea what was going on. But, they surprised me and bought me a little tree, lights, garland, a star topper, and ornaments. They all signed the ornaments and then got me a big 'W' for and reminded me that they are the best G block ever. Isn't it cute?
After going to the dentist, I came home and cooked a recipe I found here. It was delish. My favorite part was the toasted Panko breadcrumbs.

It was prettier once the pasta was mixed in with the panko and basil on top, but I didn't get a picture. But still, two pics in one day? Pretty good I would say...granted they were both with my iPhone...

I'm almost to Star Stylist with Stella & Dot. I'm so excited! Tomorrow I'm going to help a girl at a party, and that should put me over the edge. I'll definitely hit my goal that I set for myself if I hit Star Stylist this month! I think I'll do a giveaway if I hit it... :)
