There are some 30 people coming to my parent’s house for Christmas Eve dinner this evening. I can’t wait. I love being around my family during the holidays. I hope all my readers are enjoying their Christmas celebrations. Not to ruin the spirit, but I woke up with guns on the mind (that’s what happens when you engage in Facebook debates I guess). I spent the morning working on another piece regarding my country and it’s disgusting gun-rights offensive. I just hope something is actually going to be done this time.
I wrote a lot today. I’m not one for giving gifts. I just can’t bring myself to buy things–even if it is for other people. So I write personal letters. I ended up writing four this morning. I only have three left to write. I’m going to do my best to write them tonight; I like the idea of resting during Christmas Eve and Christmas. It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas.
I’m watching the Broncos kick butt right now. This will be their 10th win in a row. I am going to miss watching them when I am in Morocco. I mean, the game is fun. But it’s a great way to spend time with my father. I will definitely miss that. Well, 22 days to go until I leave. I’m trying to cross at least three items off my to-do list today. Today it went from 41 to 37. I need to keep it up.
