Fa-la-la-la....the decking of the halls has begun. I traditionally decorate for Christmas over Thanksgiving weekend, but for the first time in my life I'll be working through the holiday weekend. So, after much cleaning and getting rid of stuff and rearranging (that new love seat is being delivered Friday morning), the boxes of decorations were brought in.
At this point, the tree is up, but not decorated and some decorations are out, carefully placed in their spot of honor. However, there is still much to do and it's not going to happen today since I have Bible study tonight. I might get one or two more things done, but that's it.
The rest of the weekend was good. I spent Saturday cleaning and reading (the new Stephanie Plum mystery arrived in Friday's mail). Tim came home early since it was our anniversary.
We had planned to go to Red Lobster and were there before 5:00 but the wait for seating was already an hour long! We decided to try Longhorn Steakhouse and only waited 20 minutes or so. We didn't mind as a good steak is a close second to shrimp.
Nothing good was showing at the theater so we just walked through the nearby Walmart, which is quite a bit larger than ours, looking to see if it had a couple of things I've been wanting to get but that our Walmart hasn't had. I scored on one item and had no luck on the second (but did find it online and it will be here next week).
Megan and Colton were in and out all weekend so there was lots of time with my little Boogie Man. He did give us all a scare Saturday evening by taking a tumble down his basement stairs. His cheek is bruised and his shoulder is scratched up, but otherwise he is fine. Megan and Cody will have to come up with something to keep him off the stairs since they are fixing the basement up as a large-scale entertainment area.
By the way, they are finding Hank (the chocolate lab pup) to be too much to handle. He is probably about 8 or 9 months old and cute as all get out, but he is VERY energetic and causing a fair amount of damage in their home. That's causing a lot of stress and arguing. Since they are trying for baby number two, they are ready to admit Hank isn't something they can handle right now. So....would anyone like to adopt a chocolate lab?
