December? Already?

Why am I always so shocked when December rolls around?

I've got an eleven month notice that it's coming.

Yet still, I can't believe it's December, and 2009 is staring us down.

I suppose I could try to get in the spirit .

I'm going to do a count down to Christmas over on the side bar with Santa photos.

And I'll probably get all sappy with music and videos, like this one.

Go ahead. I dare you not to get a lump in your throat or teary eyes watching this.(warning at 2:09 and 2:25, tissue required)

Just don't forget what these men and women are doing for our country.


Even on Christmas Day.

The farther I get from childhood, the less I like Christmas. I think we should just rename December, "Spend Like Crazy" month.

Do you think I can drop 30 pounds in 30 days? That was my New Year's resolution for 2008, lol.
