Thanksgiving with the family

I am thankful for wine but that's only because I am at the bottom of the glass and feelin good.

Hope you all are as blessed as I and are spending this day with family and friends.

Black is black

Although I disagree with the Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. I do understand the joy the holiday season brings. That's my guess as to why in the last year or so everyone seems to need to get a jump on the holiday season. I am hoping it's the joy and happiness and not that everyone seems stressed and lacking time.

Times are hard. I know I am thinking twice about my decisions before I part with my money. Especially when it comes to spending for Lolly. Will this be something she'll really use? Something she really wants? Or is it something I just think is cute, good buy, etc. but will one day soon be boxing up for Goodwill? I am thinking twice. I plan to be more thought out about what I purchase.

It makes me wonder, do we really need to start our Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving night? Will the retailers really be making more money? Or will they just be paying more overhead for the same amount of sales they would have made with the normal Black Friday openings?

Are you planning on spending more, the same, or less than last year on your Christmas shopping?

Cuttin Corners

Much to my dismay, Target is running the same set of Black Friday commericals from last year. I guess everyone's trying to save money these days. But am I the only one who hates these commericals? They creep me out.

Easy to do today, since it was my birthday. Time is flying by...just seems like yesterday was the big 4-0. Now I am half way thru my forties.

Time to get our Grohl on

I am taking Lolly and a friend to see the Foo Fighters tonight.

I realized some changes need to be made when it dawned on me that I actually had to shop for something appropriate to wear. How uncool would it be to roll up there in my usual button down and argyle sweater and khaki capris? Yeah, I need to make a few changes...
