Nice thread...refreshing on the 12/21/12 topic instead of all of the ones where people believe in Mayan Prophecies which were never made. I'm
interested to see if/what, but expecting if anything does happen, it will be staged by "Them." anyhow...it's a Friday, before Christmas, so...
In the morning, I'll be tracking a bunch of high-value freight getting to its destination - it'll be a busy one because everyone wants their things
delivered that day before the holiday weekend, and drivers want to get home and stay home. My sis and family will be arriving into town the 20th or
21st. My boss will probably let us out early once everything is wrapped up for the day. At that point, I will head on home.
If something stupid happens, I'll be glad my whole immediate family, including parents, sublings, niece, wife,son, and dogs will all be together.
Keeping it in mind a little bit will add to what its really all about for me - spending quality time with family and friends, and taking the
opportunities we do have to spend time the way we always would if:
A) we didn't have to go to jobs
B) we knew every day could be the last
Discounting major tragedies, people die every day, often unexpectedly. You always think later "if only i'd spent more time with grandma", etc.
Honestly, too much of our time is taken up with our jobs. Se should all (this is a reminder to myself) do our best to make really great use of those
free days and hours we do have. I intend to never regret not having spemt enough time with my loved ones, and the only way to do that...is to do
A rare Flag from me for the thread. Got the gears turning a bit. Let's make the moat of 12/21/12 (and the following days.) if nothing at all
extraordinary happens, it'll make all the 12/21 excitement worth it!
