Today was one of those days when I floated about in ethereal bliss. These days do not come along often, so when I find myself blessed with one I enjoy it to the hilt. Although I must apologize to my dear friend, Kim, because I was so peacefully ethereal I was totally out of it when I saw her at the market...so to Kim, you are absolutely wonderful and it is always a pleasure to see you. And therein is a perfect example of my many simple pleasures...the unexpected meeting of someone I really like.

Funny, less than a week ago the Christmas vacation had not yet even begun. Along with sugar plums dancing in the heads of my little angels were visions of all the fun escapades to fill the break from school. Games to play, crafts to create, stories to read, fun times. How quickly they forget...

At this most holy time of year, I wish to remember my grandfather, George Schaffer. This short story was written last year in honor of him and won a writing contest. So as we sit down with our families this Christmas, may we remember all the women and men who fight for us as well as the families they leave behind to do so.

Okay, here's the situation. All of you on Facebook (my totally guilty pleasure/time-suck/vessel of major communication) are probably familiar with the little icon habitually popping up on your page informing you so-and-so has answered a question about you, and don't you wanna know what they said?

I don't know about you, but I am a tremendous fan of Monty Python. I don't care who you are...arms for the poor and bring out your dead (I'm not dead yet)...that is funny stuff. And now for something completely different...

Today, the last Sunday of Advent, is Youth Day in our Church. This means the Mass is led by one of the Faith Formation grades; the students are the greeters, ushers, gift-bearers, Lectors, etc. Today was my class's turn to lead the Mass.

Faster than a speeding bullet...more powerful than a locomotive...able to tear down in a single bound...unfortunately, it's not a bird, or a train, or even a superhero in blue tights. It's my mouth. And it has a tendency to engage before my brain.

I know I am currently in the midst of pursuing my degree, but I have never been known as dumb by any stretch of the imagination. However, after my conversation this evening with National Grid, I was left thinking, "It must be me..."

Tonight I came home and decided it was time to get back on the treadmill. After receiving skeptical looks from the entire family, I loaded my iPod and got to it. When I work out, my genre is definitely the club music. The base pumping in my ears pushes me beyond the limits and I love it.
