How's December?

Has your December gotten off to a good start? Mine is the busiest time of the year for a music teacher! On Sunday, I sang in church choir for the first Sunday of Advent. Then, from today (Monday) I start seeing my students on stage to practice for the Christmas program. The next three days will be getting them in the right places on stage and in seats and singing the songs, making sure everyone can see me (the director), and that kids are starting to bring their costumes and memorize lines (only for the people acting.) Most of my December is taken up with rehearsals, performances and services. How about yours?

Your December sounds so lovely, you're off to a great start. Mine didn't start off good as I had to rush my son at the hospital, but it's starting to get better now. He's just got the case of the chicken pox, I'm just seeing this as a way for him and I to spend more time together. All is well and God is good, I have faith my December will be amazing as well.

Those are all the things I won't do. I will probably not meet my family until the day after Christmas!

@petatonicsca I have to say I am having a nice time right now. I am sitting here with the window open. The chill is on my legs and feet. That is priceless.

Just like an ordinary month for me. Usual things happened for the first two days of the month. That sounds really a busy month for you.

I teach music in school. Elementary and middle school, and I teach private flute and flute ensembles and play piano for the high school choirs. So I spend every day in some form of school teaching.

Looks like this is the busiest month of the year for you, am i right? However when you do something by heart and put love and effort on it there's nothing that can stop you. You go! Hope everything goes your way and can make it successfully till the end of the month. :)
