what I woke up to this morning


It was difficult crawling out of bed this morning. My body was listless, flem seemed to be slowly creeping into my breathing canals, and overall, I just didn't feel my greatest. I am hoping that these signs are not actually signs of an upcoming virus/flu/cold/illness, but since I am no fortune teller, I cannot say for sure. However after dragging my useless body from the cave of my bed hovel, dressed myself, skyped with Kyle, I walked downstairs to the office for our daily morning meeting. However, this morning, the view out the window was drastically different than the mornings before! Everything was covered in white. When I lived in Lubbock breifly for two years, it snowed a couple of times, but if this stays for Christmas, it will be my very first White Christmas! Yay! Only 2 days till Christmas. Moral around here is low since we have to work Christmas day, and it is difficult to feel the Christmas spirit. Korea does celebrate Christmas, but it isn't an important holiday and considering that the children are here at an all week camp over the Christmas holidays tells you a little bit about how unimportant it really is. Hopefully this snowfall and the Christmas caroles we are singing on Thrusday will help to lift everyone's spirits.

Wow!! The snow looks beautiful!! Im sorry they are not really all about the Christmas spirit! But hopefully you and the others you work with can get together and create it? I dunno...it's hard for me this year period. I am not feeling it as hard as I may try. When only half of me is around (and I know you know exactly what I am talking about) nothing is as fun!

I hope you aren't getting sick!! That would be awful! I hope the same for myself! Here on Saturday it was 75, 70 on Sunday, and on Monday it didn't get about 38 degrees! Weather like that always kicks my butt!

Oh drat...I'm so sorry that you have to work on Christmas Day. Come to think of it, I'd rather work than go to my mother-in-law's house but oh well...
