Dang, is that girl's butt hanging out? Sheesh, I got all the way done with this tag and noticed it. Ooops, hope I'm not offending anyone because I'm so indecisive today I couldn't figure out which tag to use so I made one.
Thanksgiving was annoying. I'm not dwelling on it as it was not any more or less than I expected. We were to be there around 3:30 to eat at 4:00. In reality, we ate at close to 7:00. I was more than grouchy because I had to get up for work at 4:30 the next morning and still had a 45 min. drive home. Becky was also grouchy as she had tons of studying to do and had an hr. ride home.
I've spent the rest of the weekend fussing over decorations and trees. I still have no idea what I'm going to do. I always have a huge live tree in my familyroom. I don't want to do that this year because I now have close to $1,000 invested in carpeting in this room now. It always seems that sap ends up on the carpeting, I couldn't believe the needles stuck under the old carpet when it was removed.
I bought a Martha Stewart pre-lit tree after Christmas last year at K-Mart. It is a beautiful tree and was $200. I got it for $60. The only thing is that it's a tall thin tree. I bought it with the intention of using it in the living room which is a very small room. I have a feeling it will look lost and spindly in the family room.
I had a small tree on my sunporch also that I tossed because it was old and dusty. I was going to take the tree out of the box today and see what it looked like but it was confusing the daylights out of me. LOL...that doesn't take much. I'm not the least bit inclined when it comes to putting things together. So, the tree is still in the box. Once it's out, then I have to decide on ornaments for it. Do I use my old standard or buy new ones? All this over a tree. I just can't seem to dig up that Christmas spirit yet, as I'm sure you noticed from my graphics journal...hehe, which is loaded with Christmas stuff.
I did get a 27" flat screen tv today at good old Wally World. They still had some left over from Black Friday, and the price was right. I was going to put it in Megan's bedroom which I use but Joey needs all the jacks and plugs for his DVD player and Playstation so I moved the ancient 25" magnavox into Megan's room, and he got the new one.
Megan went back to school this evening. She made tons of money waitressing over break. She worked also today. Tues is her appt. so my nerves are a bit shot. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
I had to buy some toys today for the Toys for Tots program at work. I had no idea what is popular now. It's been ages since I bought toys so I got some Dora stuff and a couple of My Little Ponys, as I've heard they are still popular. I've been fussing for a week over that.
Oh, and my windshield on my new car got stone chipped on Thanksgiving day. They repaired it so it cost me nothing but they plug the chips, and it's bugging me because I can notice it. I can always get the windshield replaced for the $50 comprehensive fee but I'll wait until I have the money to do that. But that did rattle me.
LOL...and sheesh, what is up with those Steelers? Talk about a painful team to watch this year.
Well, I didn't intend to turn this into more whining but it looks like it sort of went that way. I'm just really tired. I best get moving. I need to take a shower in the good old basement. I'm missing my soaking in the bathtub. One good thing, though, it's been 65 and sunny since Friday. Is this November in western Pa.? Actually, I love it. I'm hoping this lasts until Tues. I'll be off to go with Megan so I would like to get some outside lights up but then again I'm so afraid of putting too much up because of the electrical problems I had.
HUGS to all...I'm definitely done this time.
Thanks to Shelly Roxy's Links and Graphics for the siggy. Shelly is always surprising me with tags. I also have another with a cute floating daisy on it.
