i want to ask that anyone who hasn't yet- please sign the petition calling for cheney's impeachment here and please pass it on to folks you know. the more support we have- the better chance we have for some retribution.
oh- and please read the article i posted below- about e waste. please.
ah- the friday before cmas. sigh. i was talking to my friend over email and i was saying how i am not feeling anything akin to 'christmas spirit' this year. i grudgingly baked cookies and fudge to send out and i have zero desire to make more. usually, it's my claim to fame. oh- that and the fudge. i was watching modern marvels on the history channel last night- christmas tech- and i think the breakdown went like this- 28% have live tree; 35% have fake tree and 37% have no tree- here in america. i found it interesting. i have no idea what a year will bring and truth be told- 2008 is not a year i am looking forward to. my mom's health is in a bad way- and i honestly doubt she will be here next cmas. i hope i am wrong. we have been estranged from my father for years but his health is poor too- so it is quite possible that i will be an orphan next year. economy here and around the world is shaky- so who knows where i will be financially? can't predict. i think peace is too much to hope for- but the spados will be on their corner on tuesday for their weekly peace vigil. probably only be the two of them- but their hope for peace (on what is supposed to be christianity's most holy day) is inspiring. so- this weekend is the wrapping up (pun intended) of the obligatory cmas with friends and neighbors- and then we are in the home stretch. we'll do cmas eve and day with my fam- and over the phone with the in-laws. then- we're done. we don't do new year celebrations.
anything you would do differently next year? or any memories or traditions to share? or talk amongst yourselves for now. i am sure there will be more later :)
