Huh - who would have guessed?

For some reason I'm feeling unseasonably festive. Today we got our Christmas lights up. We even had to shop to replace a string of lights that didn't work anymore - and I didn't want to push anyone down and beat them.

We went to like five stores. And despite rumors of a horrible economy, places were pretty packed. But, I digress.

Oh - and LED lights this year are apparently the hottest thing to have. That's what we wanted to get, but the color we wanted was sold out. The checker told us they had been selling out of them for days. Finally.... some LED acceptance.

I've also been feeling uncharacteristically unstressed and un-neurotic. Which is amazing considering the month I've had. Perhaps its because we've already done the family thing. Mr S. and I have decided to do the low rent Christmas. He wants an e-book reader. I just want a fancy toe ring.

It was kind of the perfect time to buy a house, because there just aren't any "must have" toys this year. No video game consoles. We're all computered up. Robot level adequate.

Its kind of a nice level of zen right now. It won't last... but you have to take it as it comes.

  1. I took Piko out for ice cream this afternoon just so we could get out of the house. I hate going to the shops during this time of the year, unless it's a week day. We ended up at Toys R' Us so that she could find a toy that she could ask Santa for. She's not greedy, she always only asks for one toy. Anyhoo, I was happily surprised to see that they had more than one checkstand open! Amazing, I think that there were at least 5 of them manned. Lines were moving quickly, and people were saying "excuse me" in the aisles!

    Sarge and I also have nothing to buy eachother this year. Well, that's not true, I bought him that gym rope, but he already has it. He says what he's gettin' me is "Gettin' the hell out of Maryland!!! A 4 year vacation in Germany" Well, all I have to say to that is that if he's going to call it a vacation, then that means I don't have to get a job! And there aint no better present than that!
