A Little Christmas Cheer

Happy holidays to everyone!  Christmas is less than one week away.  Here is what I am hoping for Christmas this year.  Can people just stop with the daily “selfies” already.  We have become such a narcissistic society.  Do people forget what they look like from day to day?  Do their looks change every day? I don’t get it.  Maybe I’m just too old school, or wait not insanely vain.  I use to laugh when I would get my mother’s annual Christmas card with a photo of herself inside.  I would call her up to ask her if she thought I had forgotten what she looked like.  Needless to say, mom was very vain.

Politics have gotten so ugly lately.  I don’t have the same political views as some of my siblings, and my brother is going off the deep end with his.  I may not like his views, but I don’t rant and rave whenever I talk to him on the phone like he does with me. I just tell him we’ll agree to disagree, I think he just likes to argue, which is kind of sad.

I think deep down we all want the same things.  A decent job, good schools, healthy children and a planet that will be here for years to come.  I wish big money would get the hell out of politics.  Women’s rights are being trampled day by day.  I hope in my lifetime I will earn the same as a man for doing the same job.  Is that too much to ask?  I do wish people would take responsibility for their own actions.  I get so sick of people whining about everything being someone else’s fault.  Here’s a news flash for you, get up off your ass and change your life.  No one is going to do it for you.

I’ve decided that 2015 is going to be a great year for me and my family.  2014 was pretty good, but I’m going to be a better wife, mother and friend going forward.  Life is too short to not be happy.Christmas 2014
