News

Happy Saturday! I’m tired, I  stayed up late last night playing Saints Row 3 and finished it actually, then my kids were up at 8am. It would be nice to sleep in on the weekends, but I guess with kids you can’t. Yes it’s the 8th and that means it’s just closer to Christmas and my youngest just can’t wait. Last night at bedtime he was just so excited about it. I think I miss being a kid and innocent and being excited about Christmas and Santa Claus coming to see me. Now that’ I’m an adult I’m just not exited about it anymore, I’ve learned that it’s just another day and another way to spend money, it seems a way we have to spend money. The spirit of Christmas has been lost in commercialism, but that’s a rant for another time and not here, maybe over on my blog where I do a whole lot of ranting. Anyway, read on for the news from around the world…
