Yay for me! I finally got the lights on the tree tonight! It took me awhile. It wasn't an easy task as I had Nathan sifting through the ornament boxes and pulling out beads, hooks, and the likes. Having to stop and re-direct his attention put me behind, but wore him out sooner than I expected. It wasn't long before he had that sleepy time look on his face and a wisp of his hair in his fingers. This is his usual bedtime ritual and one that I am happy to see. He was out in no time, giving me a little peace before having to clean up all the strewn boxes. I think that is on reason I dread pulling everything out. I know it will be up to me to get it all back in one place and tidy up. Whew! Like I don't have enough to do! Ahhh, but how "homey" it is and quiet right now without my little man running through here. I tried to teach him that once the ornaments went on the tree, we do not take them off to play with them. I'll let you know later if it was a lesson learned.

As I was fixing my "new" hair today, I thought of a wonderful weightloss idea. I was thinking if I would take a photo of myself in that tight, plastic cap, and post it on the fridge and in my wallet, it might detour some of my UNnecessary "chewing of the chocolate" What 'cha think?

Yay, tree lights! We have the tree up, and of course, decided to rearrange the entire living room, which meant having to dust, vacuum, etc. It's 7 p.m. and the lights still aren't on the tree. Haha!!

How do you like your hair? Did you change it?

Exactly! We had to do the same.

About my hair, hmmmmmmmmmm, well, I got rid of the gray, trimmed it up and hilighted. I picked a color a little different than what it turned out, but it's okay. I think I can live with it until summer, I hope. :)

Ok, please don't clobber me here...I put my tree away in the fruit cellar every year fully assembled and with the strings of lights still on. Come Advent all I have to do is plug it in and decorate. (Smiling sheepishly...)

Sheepishly.....yeah, I bet!!
