It’s been so long since a fresh post. Too long really.
It’s so annoying how life gets in the way of blogging about my life.
I’ve been up to a lot of things as the holiday season picks up speed, namely getting my apartment ready to host my immediate family Christmas.
The first order of business was a tree. I wrangled a live 8 foot Frasier fir into my jeep and then up 2 flights of stairs to my apartment.
All by myself, thank you very much.
I just flung that puppy over my shoulder and never looked back.
I was very impressed by my achievement as I went to put the stand on the tree and realized I had no tree stand. What a buzz kill.
What happened was that I saw a tree stand at Lowe’s where they didn’t have any garland so I decided I would just get the tree stand wherever I found garland and save myself a holiday madness check out experience. I found garland at Home Depot and plumb forgot about that there tree stand thing.
It’s a miracle that I can make it to work with matching shoes on a regular basis.
So glad that my efforts toward time efficiency had paid off, I trudged out to my car and drove to Home Depot. I parked my car and grabbed for my wallet in my purse. No wallet. Man, that day was really shaping up to be a good one.
Thoroughly frustrated by myself, I drove back to my apartment, went and grabbed my wallet and set off for my FOURTH journey for that dang tree stand.
Even though I never got out of the car at Home Depot, my pride would not allow me to drive back there for the third time in 2 hours. So I found myself at Lowe’s, purchasing the tree stand that I had opted out of purchasing just hours earlier so I could save myself some time.
BAH, HUMBUG, y’all,
