christmas in the desert

well…this was probably my most unique christmas yet. i spent it with six adolescent boys and two male co-workers. that’s right – i was the only female for ten days. good times. it was an interesting shift: below zero several nights, snow storms, wind storms, new students, lots and lots and lots and lots of cursing, CHRISTMAS day in the desert, and much more. i certainly missed seeing family and friends during christmas. tara is visiting me this off shift…i can’t wait!
