Was going to take a break until the new year, but then came across a little letter to the editor of the Arizona Republic that made me want to say a few words. So consider this an "audio holiday card" for all of you.
Oh, and in the holiday spirit, I drop one F-bomb. Be warned, younger listeners! (really, I have them!)
I'm also slowly downsizing my holiday, and becoming less stressed because of it- it's a wonderful feeling! I talk about it a bit in the episode, but I also just came across a great blog post from Zen Habits that seemed to help explain how I've been feeling. It was very, well, zen. :-)
Have an excellent holiday, or, if you do not celebrate the holiday, have a great couple of weeks. I'll be back after the New Year with headlines and more seeking!
PS- This sticker is on my van now. I love it!
PPS- The holiday tunes:
- Nelson: Jingle Bell Rock
- Hollywood Drunks: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
