Well, I am officially a klutz. I woke up and Mom said “your tea and bagel are on the counter.” So I go over and take the tea bag out of my tea and as I was turning, hit my teacup so tea goes everywhere. Now, when I spill something I don’t mess around. I make sure it goes EVERYWHERE! I mean, if you are going to spill something you may as well do a good job of it! After breakfast and chores I come downstairs to do math. I realize that I have no idea what I am doing. My video teacher did not give any examples with Negatives or subtraction signs and my book did not either. Almost all of my problems had negatives or subtraction signs. Why I ask you, is it like that. I mean could you solve (x-6) (x-7) if you had never done it, without any instructions whatsoever? I think not! So annoying. Sometimes I really can’t wait until January when I switch to Geometry and a different teaching style!

I have piano later today. And if I am done with school before I go (very unlikely!) then when I come home I will make more clay beads. The mail man just came. Nana sent us out Christmas Torte! And a box of other goodies like meats and cheeses and chocolates! Thank you Nana! I am eating a Chocolatey Graham with peppermint pieces!
I wish I could end with a “its beginning to look a lot like Christmas” but I cant. There is no snow and everything just looks dead. Ah well, snow will come soon enough.
