Walking in a Winter Wonderland...

So it's finally looking a lot like Christmas, which is nice since it doesn't necessarily feel so much like the season. For the first time in I can't remember how many years - we actually might have snow on the ground for Christmas. I know, it's a bit premature for me to make that kind of statement, but given how the weather's been lately, I'm feeling rather optomistic. Yesterday's storm took quite a toll on the commute. I'm not exactly sure why it seems that everyone felt the need to be on the roads all at once yesterday -- the storm itself wasn't all that bad -- but the panic to get home was. It took me 3 hours to make a 9 mile drive home. Unbelievable.

Anyway, it afforded me the time to listen to the Mitchell Report and all the conversations that took place on WEEI immediately following. I have many a thought on the steroid situation but I'm going to hold that for tomorrow's posting I think.

Today is my son's holiday concert at his school. I can't wait. He's so funny, he's been keeping secret the songs he'll be singing because he said he wants to surprise me. He also said one of the songs makes all the teachers teary eyed when they rehearse, so he said I'll "definitely cry", which is a riot because he's never seen me cry -- ever!

Yesterday's holiday party at work, although brief - was actually kind of fun. They aren't usually, so to have laughed and had a good time was a nice surprise. There are actually some really great pictures floating around that I'm looking forward to seeing. It's pretty much a ghost town around the office today, so I'm thinking come Monday they should be circulating.

So, today's thoughts are ending with just a few lyrics from one of my favorite contemporary Christmas songs. I'd posted the whole song last year, but I just can't get this particular verse out of my head, so I'm sharing again. Have a lovely Friday!

"No more lives torn apart….And wars would never start...And time would heal all hearts….everyone would have a friend...And right would always win

And love would never end….This is my grown up christmas list…"

I hate the snow today because whatever melted turned to ice and I now have an inch thick coating of ice on my driveway. I can't get out of my house without slipping!
