If the world ends tomorrow, what will you do today?

Do I believe that the Mayan apocalypse is correct and the world is ending tomorrow? Nah. Do I believe that a lot of people believe it is going to happen? Yup. Tomorrow my family and I are bunking in. We're not going out ANYWHERE! No school, no gym, no Girl Scouts, no work for husband, N.O.T.H.I.N.G. Extreme? Ya, probably. Cautious, you bet. We in no way believe that a giant rock is going to come hurtling out of space and destroy our planet. Nope. But we wouldn't put it past a group of radicals to attempt a wide-scale attack on our country causing mass panic. And we'd rather be together, safe at home IF that happens. Which it probably won't.

After all the craziness that we've seen not only this week, but this past year, and heck the past decade, we've decided that we're going to play it safe and stay home as a family and bond. We're going to make Christmas cookies (something we have not done in 4 years!!) make Rice Krispy treat holiday houses, play games, the kids have planned a talent show.

Today I am spending all day with the kids at their school. My 6 and 7 year old are participating in a Holiday musical, my 8 year old is doing some crafty thing in her class (oh help me, I am not crafty), 6yo is making gingerbread houses, and I will be having lunch with each of them. This will be the FIRST time this year I've been able to have lunch with my guys and the FIRST time this year that I've been able to make it to a daytime event at school.

So if the world ends tomorrow, I will have spent today with the three most important people in my life. Showing them how important they are to me, and how much I love them.

And sometime today (and tomorrow) I need to fit in a workout. Wink

What are your thoughts on the Mayan apocalypse? Are you doing anything different tomorrow because of it??

  • I'm not doing anything differently tomorrow than I normally would, but am making a point to see my best friends! I'm shopping and having lunch with a best friend from college and then doing dinner with a best friend that I made as a "grown-up." Because friends are always the best.  And somewhere in there--fitness and yoga!
  • Sounds like you have a fun day! I don't believe the world is ending tomorrow, so I'm not doing anything different.
  • I enjoyed our day bunking in. In my mind, I pretended like it was my last day on earth and thought about what I would want to do and what I would do if given a second chance. It was just a mental exercise but I feel like something changed inside.

    There was a mass shooting. No asteroids or terrorist attacks. You know though, something would have happened if we didn't prepare. That's how this sort of thing works.

    Now, if we can just get past this fiscal cliff thing. I can't afford to pay an extra 7 mortgages in taxes each year...geez.
