Finding time to enjoy the holidays
The holidays can be stressful. There are the preparations, the decorations, the cooking, the cleaning. There is dinner with mom’s family, brunch with dad’s family, with your husband’s family, with your stepwife’s family. Relatives are spread across the country. It’s easy to feel spread thin.
Act of voting as important as result

I was listening to my cd on my way to work Monday afternoon when I heard a rumbling in my car. I turned off my cd and the sound became louder. It soon became hard to steer so I had to pull over to see what was happening to my car.
