But I DO feel like I owe him something. Anytime we call him because we're in a bind, he comes in. **sigh** I think I'm developing a......conscience. EW!

He's prolly already asleep.

Good evening everyone. Just does not feel like Christmas - feels like its been going on way too long this year. Well, the decorations did go up just after Halloween, I guess. I still need to put my prelit, artificial tree up. It is actually cute, believe it or not. But I do feel like a slug for not having a big deal tree.

The prelit tree is up but not decorated. Writing out Christmas cards tonight. Although still can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, I think I can see the tunnel from here! If these darn people would just stop sending me work.

Tomorrow going to a Christmas store in KY with a friend, then lunch, then coloring each other's hair.

Might be able to start the sugared pecans Wed.

I believe Castle's a repeat. Might be able to finish the cards.

Tree is up and lights are on it. Nothing else on it yet.

Put up some Christmas stuff. Most of it is done.
Way less then usual, but enough.

Typed names and addresses into the computer and printed labels, but still have to write out the cards.

Mammogram tomorrow.

Still waiting to get son's car back. The airbag light was on and they were trying to figure out why.

Mine, however, if fixed. When I dropped of the key , they just did it. Oil pan was loose.
Had Rusty with me, so did his walk while they fixed the car.

Mom's doctor canceled, but still did mom day.
Mom rescheduled the damn appt. for Christmas week. I told her hubby was on vacation that week and she might have to just bite the bullet and go next year. As in Jan. It is just an eye exam. It will screw up her deductibles.

I concur - although it will be an uncomfortable conversation it is probably necessary

Woo Hoo, Niece says we can bring Rusty on Christmas day!

Good option.
It is 3 to 4 hours in the car, so we don't stay more than 3 or 4 hours. That makes things sort of rushed.
Plus my doggie sitter is a year older this year and has trouble getting into my house, since we have no rails on the steps.

Still might leave him home. It is a new layer of packing. Crate, food, the stuff Lynnie told me to buy if he makes any sort of mess.

Gotta make sure he has a bath and his nails nicely done.

Too late to book a bath, already tried. I can do that, it is the nails that are hard.

Blame Castle.


Getting bit by a pig wasn't weird enough for you?

I'm glad it didn't get infected. I would have had to go back to the doctor that I went to when Basil scratched my eye.

My chart would say,
Rat scratched eye
Pig bit thumb.

Going with a friend to The Christmas Tree Shops in KY tomorrow morning. Just checked and there's only one in TX, but it's in Dallas. Ever been there? We discovered it last year and it's pretty neat.

A bunch in NY, but I can't tell if they're anywhere near D'name.

Don't think so. I'm not into doing the heavy Christmas decorating thing anymore. Lights outside, tree inside. That's about it.

I've got a gap in my net lights in the bushes that I need to fix. They look like David Letterman.

I'm not adding decorations either. But I need a new bag to cover the tree in the basement, I need Christmas and birthday paper, I need one string of lights that burned out last year. They've got a lot of stuff besides decorations. And they're open year round, lots of stuff besides Christmas stuff.

Having been closely associated on a personal level with the hotel industry since high school (best friend's dad owned a few and then recently I became best friends with a GM's wife), I agree with GMan, it would be doing him a favor in the long run. You could also make a corporate/owner B.S. about having to interview at least 3 people for this position and let him be a potential, if he shows up cleaned up, then you could feel better about giving him a shot again, maybe with a 3 month re-evaluation.

And home. Friend got a call after lunch on the way to her house that her s-i-l had a bad heart attack and was going into surgery, so we cancelled the hair part of the day.

Yeah, I did. It was fun. Got some stuff I needed and some junk. It's kind of a like a Big Lots. Although there was some metal wall art that I may have to go back for. I'll have one new wall! Also got to have lunch. Good thing the call didn't come a half hour later, we both would have had a head full of gunk.
