and I didn't even do any Black Friday shopping! We enjoyed a delightful day at the home of some friends of ours....it was a very nice day and meal. My part of the meal was Carrot Souffle (one of our favorite traditions), an Apple Cake and the rolls. I just bought frozen roll dough at Kroger's....delicious but oh.so.simple!
There was a feast!
So today, I am trying to get order to my house before I can even think about getting any Christmas decor out of the attic. I have asked son #2 to get the boxes down before they leave again tomorrow. He has to get back early to study for a big test coming up next week.
I am feeling so unmotivated to get all the Christmas decor out. I am having my shoulder surgery on the 29th of December, and I keep thinking, "what I put out, I will have to put away and not sure how fast that will happen after my surgery....this is the first year, I think I will buy a small artificial pre-lighted tree!
Have you ever had a year where you purposefully cut back on how you decorated for Christmas? I am struggling with making this decision and feeling sort of overwhelmed already!
I guess I just need to get the Christmas music going to get into the spirit! At least the weather cooled off and it is so nice now. I'll be making a big pot of chili tomorrow! YUMMO! Love cold weather and chili, don't you?
