Merry Christmas!

I'm counting down my last few minutes of work...and then I'm not back here till January 7th!

Early tomorrow morning we're off for two weeks in NS - I'm looking forward to it. It's been 2 and a half years since I was home at all, and something like 4 since I was home for Christmas. I still have a lot of packing and laundry to do tonight...and 3:30 AM is going to come awfully early...eeep!

Stay tuned for photos of Christmas in NS - it's been a while since I used my camera, and it's due for a workout.

May you find joy in Jesus, the reason for the season!

It's been a crazy week for commuting. I am getting very sick of spending so much time in my car! I keep meaning to rotate my collection of cds, but I keep forgetting. So yesterday, during my trip home from work, which took more then twice as long as it usually does, I was BORED.

I usually listen to Shine FM, and between 4 and 5 pm they take requests. I don't normally use my cell phone much while I'm driving, but I was moving so slowly I might as well have been parked, so I called in to request a song. It took a couple of tries, and I was about to give up, but then I got through.

They entered me in a draw, and said they'd try to fit my song in before 5:00 (it was already like, 20 to 5) so I didn't think I would hear it.

Just before 5 they called back to say that I won the draw! I won a pizza and passes to a Hitmen game, and my song was the last one they squeezed in. It was very exciting - I never win anything. :) Although now I have to drive all the way down to the Shine office in the south to pick up my passes, which I'm not even going to attempt to do until the roads are better!
