To me, that's not being lazy, that's being frugal with your energy! Those are my kind of days!

No big plans this weekend, and ... believe it or not ... neither of us has office or freelance work! It's a really truly weekend! Maybe that's why I'm feeling lazy.

Everybody on a bus, singing carols as we go from place to place!

Odd? I'll tell you odd: I didn't even get my license until I was 24 because of my fears!!! But I will admit that I can drive anywhere and not be afraid now. Unless, of course, I am driving a VW Bug on a dark country road, with the wind blowing just a little, and I run out of gas, and Jason is on the loose, and I open my door and leave it open and leave my headlights on, and the battery goes dead!!! And what else...oh, yeah, some creepy, scary music starts playing....

The semi came out at a really slow speed and Scott tried to swerve but didn't have enough time and ran into the back of it. The worse part though was that he mostly likely would have survived if it hadn't taken so long to cut him out of his work van.


In other news, Boeing confirmed that they are going to lay off 800 employees starting in 2 weeks. My BIL has been there a little over 2 years so he's not sure how far up the chain he is. It doesn't make sense though. They say there's not enough work for them but yet they are on mandatory overtime and working weekends.
That is such a tragic case. What a shame. Praying for her and her family.

Praying your BIL doesn't lose his job. What a horrible thing to have to worry, any time of the year.
