Merry Christmas Eve

I hope those that read this enjoy their Christmas Eve, here in 2007.

If you're like me, you had some highs that were wonderful and make life worth more than you could ask for...

...and then the lows that stress you out to no end.

And everything in between is just noise...

But we've endured and the analogy that best fits life is that it IS an endurance 'sport'. It can hurt and you wonder if you'll make it to the end...and boy, is it hard.

But the goal, for me, is to get as close to the end as I can -- which means, for me, making this last as long as possible. I hope I can, as I hope for everyone else 'out there'.

CJ has been trying to sleep most of the day away. She wants Christmas morning to be here NOW. All day, she stares at the clock, wishing for it to hurry up. She even went to bed at 9:15 tonight -- normal bed time for her is 9:30 (hey, I'm a liberal) and holiday bed time is 10:30. She didn't resist and flew right into bed when I put Mi-Mi into bed. She's ready for Santa.

And while I embraced her enthusiasm and excitement, I thought to myself, please - don't hurry time!! I need to relish all of this and I prefer to do it s-l-o-w-l-y.
