It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

....unless you live in Tate County MS or anywhere in Arkansas, where it's looked like Christmas all year, 'cause most people didn't bother to take their lights down.

I put my Christmas Tree up last week, and got most of my decorations up outside, but it appears I am going to need at least one more full day of it. Have you peeps got your houses decorated yet?

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend, which started with my Birthday festivities on Wednesday, and ended with Alabama taking Auburn to the woodshed on Saturday, and lots of fun family times in between. I don't think it gets much better than this last weekend. I have lots of pics to post, but hubby doesn't allow me to download the pics because he has them organized "just so" on the computer,,,blah, blah, blah and, whatever, so soon as he gets them on here, which may be the 5th of Never, you'll see them.

I did not venture out into shopping purgatory otherwise known as Black Friday. But I've heard stories of how bad it was. The local Wal-Mart apparently had a two hour wait in line to check out at 6:00 Friday morning. I'm a little high strung, you may have noticed, so it doesn't always do for me to get into situations like this. Sometime I'll tell you the story of the fight between me and a little old lady wretched old hag, over some Sister Schubert's rolls at the Kroger. Anyway, I'd love to hear about it if any of you have tales to tell from Friday.

For now, I am going to bed. Elly has a bad cold, non-stop night time coughing, so I may or may not get two hours of sleep tonight, see ya tomorrow!

There is not enough saving to be done to get me out there on Black Friday - especially after last year when I had to fight for my trusty laptop at the Walmart! I had to fight the sales people who were trying to stash em underthe counter for them selves! I spotted one, called their bluff and whined until one of em gave up their bootie!!!

Yeah, I have mad persuasive skillz~

I've just started decorating and it's slow-going. Tater Daddy is under some huge, let me say HUGE deadlines at work, and it's all falling to me. I've never put up an 11-foot tree before, and I'll admit that I'm just a little intimidated.

I didn't brave Black Friday, but the hubs did later in the day and said it wasn't so bad. He has more patience than I do. I tend to freeze up in crowds of wacked-out crazy people, so I avoid going out on Black Friday. It totally ruins the holidays for me.
