It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!

Today is the big day.  My father is calling me when he gets off of work to meet him to pick out my Christmas tree.  Then we are going to go buy lights and ornaments at Fred's dollar store.  We both agreed to steer clear of Wal-Mart.  One of my father's main competitors. 

The last time I had a Christmas tree was in the early part of this decade.  I was married and Rachel paid an exorbitant amount for a artificial Christmas tree.  I remember it weighing a ton as I unboxed it and put it up.  Each morning, I would sit in our den with our dog, Otis, as I drank my coffee and welcomed in the new day sitting in front of our lit tree.  Those are special times and memories of my failed marriage, and I hope Rachel has a Merry Christmas this year.

Hey, nice blog!

Also like that you have chosen to not let labels carve out parts of you.

Merry X'Mas!

Can't wait to see your tree. You are so lucky it's cold there. Here it's hard to get in the spirit when it's 85 outside.

I hope your tree is going up better than mine. I just can't wrap my mind around it. Funny, my tree is an artificial one from WalMart! Can we still be friends? lol I do get my meds from a small family pharmacy though so that should make up for it.

Pictures of the decorated tree, please!

It's been too long for you not to have a tree - and how nice you want to wish your ex a Merry Christmas.
