A Day of Remembrance

I spent a quiet day at home today. It was nice to get a few things done around the house and relax with Jon, but I found my mind wandering back again and again to what this day truly means for Americans and Canadians alike. It's a day to think about the freedoms we have and the men and women who have helped us keep them. It's good to fight for something worthy and this freedom I get to experience everyday, though often take for granted, is definitely something I cherished a bit more today as I thought of the countless people in this world who don't have such luxuries.

The Dark Side of Time Changes

Although I love getting that extra hour of sweet sleep every fall as the time change rolls around, I hate how the darkness comes so quickly that first day. It's only 8:30 and I'm ready to curl up in a ball and sleep my life away. I hope whoever reads this is having a better time adjusting then I am.
