merry christmas

My first tree!! (Photo powered by BlackBerry.)

At some point during our time at Tysons Corner tonight, I made the decision that we were NOT going home tonight without a tree. Period. End of story. And I didn’t care where we had to go to get the tree. I wanted Christmas. And despite the traffic reporter on WTOP telling people to stay inside unless it was necessary (please … you’d think a blizzard was blowing through) we forged ahead.

After a failed instinct that took me to Silver Spring of all places, we ended up in Wheaton at Target (which was another painful experience … two strikes and you’re OUT, Wheaton) where I scrounged through the aisles marked “Seasonal” and got a few boxes of ornaments, some garland and 450 lights. They weren’t imported Italian twinkle lights, but they’re good just the same. A stop at a Christmas tree lot later, we had what you see in the trunk … and dragged up four flights of stairs … sitting in the corner of the dining room.

So, for the next 19 days, I’ve got a little Christmas in the house. I’m really happy about that.

    I’m impressed. I don’t decorate my place. I spend all t-giving weekend doing my parent’s house, come back here and work for 3 wks, and then spend 10 days back at the parent’s house… I see no point in decorating my own, but admire you for doing so! Lookin good godub
