is it time?

i used to worship time. we have more clocks in this house than i care to count - it's developed into a collection. i used to get anxious when my digital clocks disagreed.

a few weeks ago, i stopped wearing a watch.

i'm continually amazed at how reliable my "internal clock" is! i haven't missed or been late to an appointment yet. the only ramification of this has been that i occasionally feel like i've been in a cave. i was coming home yesterday and saw that our neighborhood has put up the holiday lights and decorations. i started to feel annoyed, but then i realized that it is november - less than 2 weeks until thanksgiving!

so now i am able to look at the decorations and feel happy since i no longer perceive them as being prematurely thrust on me. i love the holidays, and am looking forward to spending thanksgiving and christmas with the people i love.

I experienced the same radical shock with the Christmas display at Walgreens. It was 85 degrees at the time.

But in Houston, we can't keep pounding tiny fists into the dirt sobbing "why, oh why God?" It just ain't gonna snow.

So I'm with you. Let's redirect attention to the holiday spirit. Find "It's a Wonderful Life." I haven't seen it in a few years. Crank the A/C and heat spicy apple cider. Think stuffing.

We don't want to miss it.

I feel sorry for people who don't have snow.

We did have a White Christmas just a couple of years ago here in Houston - it will probably be the one and only Houston White Christmas that I or my kids will ever see. It was awesome!

P.S. I don't wear a watch, either - but I do like all my clocks at home to be perfectly synchronized!
