Scrooged

This year for the holidays I'm more determined than ever to seek meaningful gifts.  I'd like to offer gifts to provide more of an experience than a quick ohhh-ah shiny factor.  For example, I'm considering for our nephews and niece to get them passes for a museum or the zoo.  If we can get a good deal on annual passes to one that would be even better.

For parents and grandparents, we're returning to the idea that Christmas is about showing loved ones how we think of them when not together.  Like "Oh, I walked past this ____ and knew it was for you." 

It's important to get back to what this holiday is about; kindness, thoughtfulness, and spreading love.  It is meant to be a humbling time of year full of slowing down with appreciation and surprising ourselves with acts of goodness.

Yes we can stand more compassion and generosity year round and I encourage that too.  It's just that our world seems to be at even more a place of utter chaos during the holiday season.  I do believe we can fix it, it's going to take a conscious effort.  I'll just leave this right here as my supporting multimedia component:

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
