Just heard on the news that the longtime Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat, died tonight at age 75. Arafat never appointed a successor, and some have feared for the past few weeks that a struggle would ensue for leadership of Palestine, but fortunately the Palestinian government has decided to follow their law and appoint the speaker of the Parliament to govern for sixty days in interim. After sixty days, elections are to occur, and whomever wins is to assume leadership.
So, closer to the homefront - what is new? Nothing much. I am still having a pretty hard time in my life right now. The situation I was hoping would work out has only gotten worse. I guess I just need to be patient because there is nothing I can do about it. I need to just be patient and leave it up to God. There is something I can do something about though, and that is my thinking. I need to think more positively. Gee, that is hard sometimes!
Well, I guess winter is finally here. I put the heat on for the first time last night! Yes, the landlord has finally turned the heat on! Thank God for that. The night before last it snow flurried. Maybe I am a little down because I am just not used to the cold weather yet. I better get used to it because it is here. It makes me want to hole up in my house and not go outside!
Well, this entry looks rather boring now that I am done with it, lol. I just wanted to say one more thing. Hello to Penny, my new J-land friend who I got to talk to on the IM. It has been really nice chatting with you and let's do it lots more!
