First, I want to say that I can’t really find the words to express how I feel about Newtown, CT.  Suffice it to say that it makes me feel ashamed to be a human.  Is this what our world has come to?  I’ve been devouring news stories trying to make sense of something that really makes no goddamn sense whatsoever.  So futile.

This was an article today that I really appreciated.  It embodies the anger that I feel about the situation.  I feel selfish to say that I’m depressed and confused.  What have we come to when we can no longer bring children into the world in good conscience?

I know I’m not alone in saying our thoughts and hearts are with the families and the town.

But life, as it usually does, goes on – no matter what we’re thinking or feeling.  Even though I felt so depressed and confused and strange on Friday, I really wanted to get my hands on a stiff drink and just be around friends.  We had plans to attend a holiday party at Zach and Lori’s out in Katy.  We donned our ugly sweaters, Lori’s caroling dreams came true, my sangria dreams came true, and we were home early enough to jump into bed.

Peak Week for Houston Marathon on Saturday morning. Our team did a good job on their 12/21 miles.

Leadership Team:

I had a 3:30 tour at HMH and then we were double-booked for parties.  Jeff’s 30th birthday at Palace Bowling!  Amy made an awesome candy cake:

Shane and I are terrible bowlers – oh well.

Then I popped into a tutu adorned with blue lights and we went to the JSC Holiday Party.  It was great fun and the group really has so much camaraderie that it’s infectious.  I love those crazy people.

Slept in til almost 11am on Sunday – can’t tell you the last time I did that.  Even better, Shane and I stayed on the couch watching Christmas Vacation til 1pm.  We finally motivated to clean the house and go grocery shopping before having our friends Cam & Lis over for dinner.  Shane made his famous guac and I whipped us up some delicious quesadillas with caramelized onions, spinach, black beans, cheddar & goat cheese, and tomatoes.  Fantastic chill evening with the newlyweds.

Rounded out the past few days with our book club side dish party/white elephant exchange.  We did a good job killing some wine, picking some books, and enjoying each other’s company.  Photo credit to Amy!  Pumpkin donuts and whoopie pies, yum.

I’m having a hard time figuring out what I want to do next year.  As far as anything.  Races, trips, high school reunion, etc.  I just don’t know.  I’d love to set my goals and start 2013 raring to go, but I just don’t know what I want to do or commit to.  Is that bad?

I can’t bowl to save my life. I’m mostly just dangerous when armed with a bowling ball.
