One of my earliest memories was our Christmas tree. I remember the way the lights danced on the glossy surface of the balls and remember being transfixed by the glow of the lights. They weren’t like the ones now. We only had a choice of three colors, red, green, and blue. Blue was always my favorite, even if it was the color responsible for the scar tissue on two of my fingers. Okay, I learned when I was three what my mom meant by, “Leave it alone.”

For the next couple of years, I watched, but kept a healthy distance from the tree. Eventually, though, the draw became too much, and back I went. It was a love that stayed with me through school and college.

I got a secretarial position in the City and decided to celebrate my first Christmas by getting a little tree and decorating it. Of course, I’d go home for Christmas, but until then, this would be mine. Very okay!

Sorry that I haven't been around a lot this week.

On Monday I got tired of the UTI and finally went to the doctor. After a two-hour wait, I finally got to see someone. They gave me a cup and tested it and said it was fine. Then I coughed and ended up getting diagnosed with an acute upper respiratory infection. A week of antibiotics and cough syrup had pretty much kick its butt and I'm starting to feel a bit more energetic.

Week three of vacation for TBG and he's pretty much taken care of everything around the house. He's taken care of most of the holiday stuff around the house. Speaking of such, here are some photos of our lights. I'm not as excited about it as I was in years prior.

The rest of the week has been a mish mash of stuff. The board meeting happened and nothing too much had changed. In fact, they gave me three more sick days. Figures, the last year I'm working and now this. Best of all, no change to my vacation or hours.

I have a small project at work that should keep me pretty busy and that's exciting. I'm off from the Dec. 19th to the 6th of January. I'm so ready I can taste it. Not sure about the 19th as we have our office Christmas party and we'll have most of the afternoon off anyhow. Do I want to burn a vacation day or not. Can't decide.

The Boy is coming home this weekend to see the show. I know he is not going to be happy about the changes made to his set, but it was necessary due to time constraints and the like. I'm sure we will hear all about it at dinner tonight.

Other than that, things are as they usually here. I could do with a bit more sun today, but here's hoping. So far we've gotten four inches of rain this year, well ahead of our usual 3.25. I'm enjoying the rain, but I do miss the sun.

here's hoping everyone is having a bright sunny day. Be careful out there while decking your halls.

Poo ka too,” Kevin whispered.

“Whaaaa?” Stuart asked, just slightly annoyed by the request.

Poo ka too!” Kevin belatedly realized what he say. “Poo ka un.”

Stuart snorted and focused his one eye on the door. It seemed like an hour since Dave, Tom and Kenny had entered the building. There has been some promising noise of destruction from inside but not much else. It annoyed him that they were in there having fun while they stood outside in the cold waiting.

Entrez badado?” Bob asked. The white fake fur around the hood of his parka tickled his nose and he really wanted to be back at headquarters and in bed. He’d fallen in love with the thick red coat and pleaded with Agnes to let him borrow it.

Kevin scowled at him and shook his head. A week ago, Timmy and Donald has discovered this cache of weapons and there didn’t seem to be anyone around to claim them. What better than steal the lot and give them to Gru for Christmas? It was easy, appropriate and cheap, three hallmarks of a bargain to Kevin’s way of thinking.

Just Wondering

Would you rather spend the rest of your life with a sailboat as your home or an RV as your home?

Would you rather have an easy job working for someone else or work for yourself but work incredibly hard?

Would you rather have all your clothes fit perfectly or have the most comfortable pillow, blankets, and sheets in existence?
