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