Burning the midnight oil ......





Good (early) morning Blogland Neighbor-hood ! Did you have a nice Christmas? We did here at MBIAJ Headquarters .... and we're POOPED and the house is a shambles. So why aren't we IN BED ?!?! (As you can see by the clock, it's 12:48 ....that's AM (yawnnnnnn). Well, we're down to the wire and having to burn the midnight oil (and not for anything fun like a sewing project either .....rats).



No, nothing fun ..... just a really , REALLY LONG (like 14 or more hours), complicated (at least for those of us with limited attention spans ....so tack on another 6 hours to that original 14), and TEDIOUSLY BORING (especially for us procrastinators .... so tack on another 4 hours to that original 14) online inservice/ training that MUST be complete by January 1st. So, with a little help from our friends from "Gertrude Hawk Candies" (a lovely Christmas gift from Evan) and about 100 gallons of a caffeinated beverage, we're good to go for another hour or two before passing out and slobbering all over the computer keyboard .

OK....toothpicks have been positioned to keep the eyelids open; caffeine is being administered via IV ......time to get back to work (UGH !!!). Let's meet back here on New Year's Eve for a party !!!! (We'll bring what's left of those Gertrude Hawk candies ....)

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

I give all of you who can do classwork online so much credit.

I'm too old.

I need a BOOK.
