It’s here, the white stuff, snow! We don’t have a lot, maybe 3 or 4 inches, but the way it was coming down last night, you’d think we’d have a foot. I think it’s over for a while and will be in the 40’s and 50’s for the next few days. We’re getting close to that time of year when we’ll have snow pretty much on a regular basis until March or April. Time to book some Hawaii tickets for the kids break in February.
I guess the movers made it to Mom’s and loaded up all Robin’s stuff. Tom has done a ton of work, not only boxing up all the stuff Robin wanted but also in continuing to clean up the house. Cleaning off Mom’s bed so Tasha’s movers could get it was a chore in itself. We’ll go help again in a few days as there’s still a ton to do.
It’s been a crazy year. Of course there’s the obvious but there’s also lots of things in all of our lives that have made it a somewhat challenging year. From external forces such as politics, class warfare, and the economy and work, to those closer to home like health, school, bills, relationships, and more, it’s been a year where you really have to look at things through rose colored glasses. You can’t let yourself or your loved ones fall into the trap where things seem lost. There’s still more good in this World than bad. I’m a firm believer that the media, broadcast and even more so, social, exploit the bad in the World, which shapes peoples views and attitude towards life. Video games and their violence alone play a big part in devaluing life with all our kids, yet no one talks about that. Violence is prevalent in everything we see from sports to movies, we glorify it. Today’s youth are easily led by powers that use them for their own purpose. Most kids joining groups these days, that are protesting everything from income equality to the President, don’t even know what they’re protesting about. When did working hard and being successful and yes, becoming “rich” (which is a relative term) become a bad thing? People with money create jobs, spend money and are usually generous. Yet some politicians have effectively branded anyone who has made some money with a scarlet letter as being a bad person. We’re raising a generation of kids that don’t want to work and expect things to be handed to them. Trust me socialism and communism are not good things. I fear by the time the next generation realizes these things, it’ll be too late. As I’ve said before, it’s easy to give up or lose some of your constitutional rights but nearly impossible to get them back.
I’ll stop now, sorry for the morning rant, I could go on for hours but need to warm up the cars and clean off the snow. Hope you all have a great day, take care, be safe and God Bless.
