Brain blip Monday

Howdy, dear Posse folks!! Well, I’ve actually gone and done it, for just about the first time ever: I forgot to post last night. Between the Thanksgiving holiday, a nasty sinus thingy that’s had me dragging, and the crazy holiday weekend (can it be December ALREADY?), I forgot it was Sunday. Adding to the perfect storm of forgetfulness was the fact that it was my first Black Friday retail gig, and man, was it crazy! I felt lucky to find my way home after those hours of retail frenzy.

Anyhoo, hope you all are doing well. Now that it’s December 2, are you all kicking it into holiday high gear?

We went shopping Saturday and picked up our first artificial Christmas tree. College-age DS was none too happy about it, but DH had warned him that last year would be our last live tree year. The one we got isn’t as full and lush as the Frasier fir trees we traditionally buy, and of course, no lovely smell, but we can remedy that. And it will be nice to have the remote control for the lights and the choice of white, multicolor and alternating.

Well, that’s about all from here. Hope everyone has a great week!

    ow! on the sinus thingy and Black Friday!

    I have an even faker tree – it’s a red, lighted conical thing I got at Goodwill for $5 a few years ago – it’s pre-lit and is perfect for my teeny space!  It’ll go up (aka I’ll put it on the console in the DR when I pull it out of the closet) shortly.

    We inherited a fake tree from my MIL and I have never looked back!  I love it, so much easier…. would love to hear some crazy Black Friday stories!

    Hey Ann,

    WOW! Retail for Black friday must have been an eye opener.

    We have had fake trees most of our lives. The same silver tinsel one till I was about 30 and thought about it. Now it’s black and has been up for a couple of weeks already.
    Get well quick,
