First is to those of you who are spending today with your head in a doll's house Modge Podging wall paper. That stuff's a bitch to get out of your hair if you let it set over night.
Secondly there was an op. ed. in the NY Times this morning that really annoyed me. It is here, all about what to do with the rest of your life when you have had your peak. I sort of get the point but.
If you have been given a gift in your life you just spend the rest of your time giving something back to life, according to your talents. There isn't a person alive who can't do something for someone. Even if what you provide is an example of how to get on with the rest of your life.
That's the deal. That's the deal.
Thirdly some of you may remember that the adult side of my extended family decided, organized by my sister Nancy, to do an emailed exchange this year.
This is the email she sent out a few month's ago that describes the idea:
Well my lovely family it is that time of year again.
We all have so much to be thankful for that a purchased gift just doesn't seem right this year. I have come up with a different idea, that I hope you all will be willing to try this year.
I would like each and everyone of you to take a few minutes and prepare a special email that will be sent out to everyone on Christmas morning.
You can write about anything, something about yourself you would like to share. Here are a few examples
Some tips on, cleaning, raising kids, managing money, gardening, organizing your day, office and life.
Favorite joke, book or how about your idol and why
What you would do if you won the lottery.
Confess your sins, we won't tell a soul.
Ask us for advice
Write about anything, just a little something to keep us all in touch. It doesn't have to be long but make it good!
Prepare it before hand and on Christmas morning... hit send
Don't forget or you will look like and idiot.
Mine is underway and I have decided to also publish it here on Christmas morning so family who may have trouble accessing the file on say their smart phones can see it.
A little nutty but that may be the point.
