well what I have been maintaining since a year ago when I started this mess/countdown is -

just live for today, enjoy every moment, every person that crosses your path to the fullest...'cause this is what is real.
none of us are promised a tomorrow, and indeed posters here have noted the passing of a few friends and loved ones in recent days,
so to me, the trick is to just "go for it" every day!!!

WHAT!!!! The world's coming to an end on the 21st??
I just got an email from the Finance Minister of the country of Nigeria telling me there was $13,300,000.00 dollars in an account over there in my name and all I had to do was send him my banking information and he would transfer it to my account over here..
That's just my luck... I guess there's no need to send him my information now!!!
Them dang Mayan's have ruined everything!!!!

That's what we all should have been doing since we were born. I like this thread, Deb. It makes you think about your own life and what you're doing in it. Is it making you happy, are you happy, if not, do something about it.

Well here we are at day 7.
I feel the purpose of this countdown becomes more real everyday.
My gesture of kindness yesterday was wishing a merry Christmas to some of the people I may not see again till after Christmas. I try to make my job a little more personal then just business. It just makes both our jobs a little easier.
So today is our company party, after some emotional healing last night I am ready to cowboy up and have a great time on what could be the last party I'll ever go to!
YEEEEE HAAAAAW!!!!!

thanks, Grace, I enjoy posting with you, too.

Since today is the 16th, that must give us about five days....and I'm not doing anything different really. I will finishing up this weekend w/the grandson and then going back to work.

As I have stated early on, my efforts will continue to be living fully in each moment and enjoying it as the precious gift it is. this past year has been a huge blessing to me, my eyes and heart have been opened and I really have appreciated the beauty of my own existence on this lovely planet.

(a reminder just popped up on FB, I guess I signed up for a Post-Apocalypse nap w/a group of friends, lol)

Well if I'm not mistaken, counting today and the last day this will be day 6.
I spent the beginning of it in the E R. And now I have to go to a cardiologist and have stress test, anxiety test, and get my ticker checked out. Wouldn't ya know it.
Only one friend at work wore his cowboy hat but that's okay because we were by far the baddest m f's there! I looked sharp with my black western shirt, belt and boots. Everyone said they wished they would of wore their hat afterwards and how next year ...... I said you need to live for the moment ....you just never know.
Plenty of kindness to a lot of people from me to them, and them to me..

@justaguess, we'll be counting the seconds on Friday!
I'm booked solid all week, and actually into next week, well maybe anyways,????? Here's 5 reasons I was happy to be alive today.
1- took my 2 little girls to the bus stop, and they both made it safely home.
2-only worked for 1 and a half hours today, spent the rest of day with my lovely wife and son.
3-Christmas shopping is done!
4-my daughter said the whole school including teachers, wore colors to show their honor & respect to Newtown, Conn. makes me very proud of our little town.
5- and 5, well, we still have 5 days left!
My gesture of kindness today was the green shirt I wore....:(

which time zone shall we use in respect to this?

Or do you think it will end in phases, one time zone at a time? Like the lights going out...I can picture that
