I'm headed home tomorrow. Back to Tampa. This is the first time since I graduated from college that I've spent so much time in Chattanooga, and it has been lovely. I've had a lot of time to sit around and do very little. It has been wonderful. The worst part about having such a nice and long break is the going back park. On Monday, I return to teaching and to my kids. I love my job, but it is very fast paced and causes me a lot of stress. I think sometimes I bring it on myself, but one of my goals for the new year is to stop worrying so much and over-analyzing everything. I have some other goals that I'll talk about on Saturday when I do MJ's 11 in 2011.
While being home my mom has also been trying to convince me that Tim and I should get a dog. My mom's best friend has the cutest Maltese and a teacup Yorkie. Tim liked the idea of the Yorkie, but I just love the Maltese.
What's a smart dog that doesn't need a lot of space? I think I'll wait until I have the summer off to train the puppy, but I really want one. Have any of you gotten dogs recently? What kind? I know they're so much work, but I feel like you don't know how much until you have one.
Also, one other question. I want one of those little one cup coffee makers like the Keurig or the Tassimo. They have a really good deal for the Tassimo at BB&B right now, but I want to get opinions. I want it to make lattes and I don't drink coffee. Do you have one? Do you like it/use it? I really want opinions on this one. Should I even get one at all? The point would be to discourage me from going to get lattes every morning and spending the money and getting the extra unnecessary egg white breakfast sandwich at Dunkin Donuts.
I'm excited for New Years! We have fun plans that I'll update you on tomorrow or Saturday.
