I've been getting stuff done these past couple of days. So far dreaded January is actually going quite smoothly and I feel like I'm crossing things off my to-do list, which always feels nice.
I did some reorganizing of my closet yesterday, which has been on my list for a while. I filled a whole garbage bag full of clothes to donate. That project was overdue.
Today I got Josh and Clarissa's applications submitted for their lottery schools for next year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they both get in. This is kind of a big deal to us, and it's going to be a huge bummer if either of them don't get in. We'll find out in February.
Today we also finished filming Josh's anti-drinking PSA. He has been trying to track down a police officer for one scene and he finally managed to get his school police officer to help today. Josh got permission to get out of class and I went over there to run the camera. It actually went really well. The police officer was really nice and turned on his police car lights and we filmed him fake arresting one of Josh's friends for having alcohol in his backpack. He handcuffed his friend and put him in the back of the police car and then let Josh sit back there. It was kind of entertaining for them to experience that. I told Josh that had better be his first and last time in the back of a police car, lol.
So the filming of the video is officially complete and now Josh just has to get it edited and submitted. I'll post the video once it's submitted. I'm pretty proud of him, he has worked hard on it and it's been nice to see it come together the way he wanted it to.
So so far it looks like January is off to a nice start. I may survive this long dark month after all! :)
