So, Jim and I took a week off and decided to return to Branson, Missouri to see what the concerts were like during their Christmas season. I can now say there is such a thing as too much Christmas! Oh dear, it's still November!
The week was great though and a perfect time to get away. My job requires that I spend a great deal of time pulling teachers together to work on curriculum revisions. Well, they don't want to do that during the month of Parent Teacher Conferences! Good time for me to disappear!
Branson is like a haven for Tour Buses carrying retired folks! You need not worry about what to wear. Your sweatsuit and tennis shoes will do just fine. It's the lastest fashion there. Life moves at a slower pace. The cars drive slowly. People walk slowly, many supporting each other! Oh if life could be like this every day.
So this is much like that story "Everything I Need to Know in Life, I Learned in Kindergarten". This one is "And Everything Else Doesn't Matter!"
It was a great relaxing week that brought back some childhood memories, a few too many versions of Silent Night, but all in all a sense of joy!
