I am Becky, and I approve this blog entry.

A few random thoughts:

I can't wait until this election is over.

My 3 1/2 year old son, when given the choice, will ask for Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" or Cake's "The Distance" by name. He prefers these over, say, Sarah Harmer or Veggie Tales. I'm guessing this has something to do with driving around in the car with his stay-at-home dad. a. lot.

I know that it's like this every year, but I still can't get past it being pitch black at 5:30 PM.

Planning for (and getting into the mood for) Christmas is easier in Canada than it is here. There is this unwritten rule that you are supposed to wait until after (American) Thanksgiving to embrace the Christmas season. Yes, Costco still puts out their Christmas items in September, but I'm talking about personally. I'm not saying that I want to put up my tree already (maybe in a couple weeks), but I need to start getting psyched!

I'm not the only one. Keith already asked me if we should start listening to our Christmas CDs. I said "not yet", but then qualified that maybe the Chieftans' Christmas CD would be okay. It's my favourite Christmas CD ever.

Well up North here they are already playing Christmas songs so why not!

My favorite Christmas CD ever is: Christmas by Bruce Cockburn.

I'll have to check out the Chieftan's CD. Maybe I'll treat myself to it this holiday season.
