As doomsday approaches, I picked up my copy of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and realized that this was not a great choice for recreational reading, given that in chapter three the world ends!! Then again, its Monty Pythonesque humour is uplifting!!
So I carry on ignoring the Mayans, a little difficult to do since I live with two of them - my two youngest were born in Guatemala. The youngest is totally oblivious to the passage of time, often showing up for work at 4:30pm when I am ready to leave and wondering what the problem is. Hopefully one of his ancestors created the calendar and we have "bags of time" left. The middle child manages to get out on time, but skews her days by sleeping from 4:00pm to 7:00pm and then staying awake until 4:00am and waking up again at 7:00am for work.
I am quite used to people brushing their teeth at 3:30am before going to bed or making BLTs at anytime between 2:00am and 5:00am. No one ever asks in our house, "Did you get a good night's sleep?" They could be decked :) - just saying. The eldest was born in Alberta. I'm not sure what his excuse is, except that he is an artist and well, enough said!
In spite of the time warps in the house, we did manage to get the tree up and decorated, a guest invited for Christmas dinner and now I have to buy a few presents. I plan to get back to creating that website, which I paused to write that book and I need to keep up the walking because there was an article in a magazine that came with the paper this morning about four women who walked the Camino. All projects are for after 12/21/12.
The picture - Mayans I know and love in spite of their shared secrets!!
Have a wonderful day!!
