Now I just wish I had time to ENJOY it before having to go into work.  Darn work.

Christmas Lights Fiasco

Saturday, December 4, 2010

Well, the lights and garland are finally up on the tree 🙂

But it was not an easy task.

We had put ALL the lights on the tree (three strands worth) and then when we turned them on, two of the strands were each missing a different color bulb lighting up (there are three colors…red, blue and green…so on one strand all the green lights were missing and on another strand all the red lights were missing…NOT GOOD).

So we made the decision to go out to Target to get the LED lights that we were thinking of getting.  Of course they did not have the blinking ones!  But we got the non-blinking multi-color ones (5 boxes, 60 bulbs each strand).  Once we got home, we took off the old lights and put the new ones up.

We really like them!

After that we took a break.

The goal is to get the ornaments on tomorrow!

16 Hours

*postdated for Friday, December 3, 2010

I worked 16 (actually probably closer to 17!) hours today.  They needed someone to stay for 7 am to 11 am and so I volunteered.  Hello time and a half 🙂

I was pretty tired when I got home.  I quickly got into bed since I had plans for that night.

By 5 pm we were out the door and on our way to get…our Christmas tree!!!!

As usual we got a GORGEOUS Frasier fir from our realtor (he sells trees as a side business).

It was up and in the tree stand by 6 pm!

Then we got takeout for dinner–pizza and fries…the fries were excellent but the pizza was fair…kind of lukewarm like it had been sitting for a while…very disappointing.

Then a friend of mine from work came over and we caught up on everything and then headed out to a bar where another co-worker of ours was playing his band in a bar in the town I live in…I KNOW!  It was a good concert.  I really enjoyed myself.  But I was home LATE (after 1 am) and my throat was SO SORE–it was a loud concert and I was talking pretty much throughout the whole thing 🙂

It was nice to crawl into bed let me tell you!
