Weekend Open Thread

December 14, 2013

It’s DH’s birthday! In his honor, I will make two of his favorite foods tonight: latkes and meatballs. Plus I will finish the indoor Christmas decor (last night we decorated the tree: a fragrant 8-foot Noble fir). Plus I will ship gifts to our east coast relatives. Plus I will design and order the photo calendar that I give my parents every year. Plus I will work out. Let the craziness commence!

On a much more somber note, today marks the day of the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Yesterday’s shooting at a Colorado high school was a stark reminder that our society is deeply troubled. I vote my conscience when it comes to my legislators, and I donate money to Gabby Giffords’ PAC. What else can I do? What do you do to try and effect change? I feel so helpless and just plain FURIOUS about where we’re at when it comes to gun violence.

What’s on your mind this weekend? Chat away…
