Whoa?!?! HOW is it 2022 already? Why did the first half of 2021 drraaaagggg on forever and the last half flew?!? (Answer: Lockdowns in the first half of the year -- months of lockdown.) What even happened to December?!? Once I read this post, I sort of figured it out. December was FULL.
1 - Wednesday -- We celebrated the fourth night of Channukah with a new family game that had us laughing so hard we could barely breathe!
2 - Thursday -- After a full day of getting things done (present making, grocery shopping, cookie baking), we celebrated the fifth night of Channukah with Dave's parents.
3 - Friday -- The kids and I enjoyed our neighbourhood holiday party and then watched the new, Channukah themed, Hallmark movie. (Second sentence: Also, there was a Covid case at my school -- never fun phone calls to make.)
4 - Saturday -- We went to the library and the bookstore, Rachel had Nutcracker rehearsals, I had Nutcracker volunteering, and Sam had cookie baking with his youth mentor.
5 - Sunday -- It was a full morning at church followed up with watching The Nutcracker show in the evening.
6 - Monday -- After a busy weekend, I was dragging today.
7 - Tuesday -- I had to have a cavity filled after work which is never fun :(
8 - Wednesday -- I didn't sleep for a few hours the previous night so I called in sick to work and had a very long nap.
By the evening I was feeling well enough that we could go and buy the kids a delayed Channukah present.
9 - Thursday -- Sam stayed home this day because he was exhausted (HOW MANY MORE DAYS UNTIL WINTER BREAK?!?!?!?), I didn't have a job, and we set up our book tree, part 2.
Also, Dave fell down our basement stairs carrying a basket of laundry and needed ice in a few places.
10 - Friday -- My coworker brought me a White Hot Chocolate Chai Tea from Tim's (which was delicious), we ordered Thai food for lunch (which was also delicious), and I attended the really fun Sr Youth gift exchange at church in the evening.
11 - Saturday -- Dave and I had the windiest walk delivering items to the thrift store!
12 - Sunday -- Dave and I got a lot of errands done this afternoon.
And we started a new puzzle.
13 - Monday -- I was supposed to get a massage this evening but I decided to cancel in favour of extra sleep and it was the right decision.
14 - Tuesday -- I had to make a bunch of calls to tell a cohort they needed to quarantine due to a positive case and the parents were very gracious.
15 - Wednesday -- I got a couple of gifts from my co-workers and felt very spoiled.
16 - Thursday -- We celebrated Christmas with Tim and Janice and family and, although our plans had to change slightly, we enjoyed our evening with them.
17 - Friday -- I came home from work with a pile of gifts (I didn't realize that a lot of teachers gave gifts to office staff) and ready for a two week break from work.
18 - Saturday -- I folded a bunch of laundry while watch a Hallmark movie, we went on a long errand walk in the afternoon, and we got ready to leave for our trip the next day.
19 - Sunday -- Our flight was cancelled, we weren't scheduled on another one until the next day, so we got a complementary hotel room and meal vouchers and tried to make the best of it.
20 - Monday -- We made it to Saskatchewan after another long day at the airport and a long flight.
21 - Tuesday -- We tried to enjoy the start of our vacation although we were without one of our suitcases and had to make do with random clothes.
22 - Wednesday -- We got our suitcase although we had to go to the airport to pick it up.
23 - Thursday -- We celebrated Tibb's Eve (a Newfoundland (province in Canada) celebration with a walk through the fields with my mom, watching Home Alone, and drinking prosecco.
24 - Friday -- We enjoyed Christmas Eve appetizers and opened new books and spent the rest of the evening reading.
25 - Saturday -- It was a lovely Christmas Day starting with presents and ending with turkey dinner and Christmas pudding.
26 - Sunday -- We had a quiet day with delicious turkey soup and the kids had fun snapping the wishbone.
27 - Monday -- Mom and I ran a few errands in town and Dave enjoyed frying latkes inside for once!
He'll get spoiled what with drinking wine and staying warm!!!
28 - Tuesday -- We went for a walk, even though the high was only -27C (and the windchill was hovering around -40), and looked for Northern Lights.
29 - Wednesday -- I got Covid vaccine appointments for me, Dave, and Rachel and we watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation in the evening.
30 - Thursday -- It was our last day in Saskatchewan (boo) but we got the news that the kids are going back to school next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
31- Friday -- It was an extremely long day (and I barely slept on Thursday night) as we had an early morning flight home and vaccine booster appointments for Dave and I. (More sentences: I was asleep by 7:30pm because I was wiped out. Happy New Year!!!)
As always, I'm linking up with Rebecca Jo and the other One Sentence A Day bloggers. This post now marks two years of me writing one sentence for every day. I look forward to continuing this practice in 2022.
