Saturday Night

Today was the LAST race of the season. No more Drag Strip, no more Dirt Track. And, while I'm going to be SO glad to have my weekends back to me, the $$ stream will be sorely missed! Drag Strip will start back up in March. Sounds like a long time away, but can you believe that's only 3 months from now?? Crazy.

Tonight I'm up at the R. house. The 'rents are out for an evening minus rug rats, so I'm having the pleasure. L. and L. and I are watching "Extreme Loggers". Quite a show! Considering that this is what B. does, I guess I ought to be learning something about it!

I read about the death at the Wally World up north, and then the shooting at the 'Toys R Us'. Yeah, 'cause THAT's the holiday spirit! I think too often we get caught up in the stuff aspect. I was stressed about what I'm going to get everyone, and then I realized . . . it's so not about the stuff. I'm excited to spend time with my friends, and to get to enjoy those memories. If I can't make it, I'm not giving it. I refuse to use plastic to buy trinkets. I wish I was made of money and could get everyone the things that they want. Still, this year, more than previous ones, I want to make sure that the real reason is remembered. I've been listening to Christmas music, and can't wait to listen to the "Forgotten Carols." If you haven't heard it . . . look into it. Really, really good schtuff. What are you doing for the holidays? Anything to make this year more special than others? What are you excited about giving this year?

You are SO right. This time of year is not about stuff! I am excited to go to my family's Christmas party to see all of my siblings!
