But not to worry.
The thread WILL debut on schedule. If "A Christmas To Remember" does not show up, I know I can get a good "opening shot" at Hallmark.
Their Christmas merchandise is always out by then.
you are quite fortunate then, because we just happen to have not one, but two vacant stores right here in downtown Stratford!

At least you are not whining about the Kmart Christmas commercial that is showing now. I think having a cold is a legit reason to whine! =)

I hope you get well soon!!!

Good to see you! I know the feeling when your kids are off to school. I always missed them! I always enjoyed them home with me!

How about it, Guys? Anyone see one up or getting prepared in your part of MMC land?
I never seen that store here. We use to have Christmas stores open in the malls every year November-December. We really have nice malls here but in the past 5-6 years I haven't seen any open up!!!

I wanted to get some fall decorations out but started feeling a little crummy. Wasn't feeling too swift yesterday either. I told my granddaughter we can do it another day. She said, "I will put them out for you grandma". So very sweet of her so I got one box out and told her to go for it. It's really cute how the stuff is just scattered around the house but it's special to me, even if it is not organized. It came from her heart to make the house look pretty! After she put all that out she asked again, "grandma, can we go ahead and get the Christmas Tree and ornaments out"? Then followed up with, "I will do it all by myself if you are not feeling well". Aww! Just love her! I am not sure how she will tackle a 7 ft. tree!

Anybody with bronchitis is ENTITLED to whine. It makes you feel awful, and hangs on so long! Take care of yourself, and hopefully you'll feel like yourself again. Lots of fluids, remember ... hot tea with honey and lemon helps. I hope Kandice is feeling better soon, too.

So precious! If you gave her permission, I bet she'd make a good try at getting that tree up, just to make you happy!

I hope you're feeling much better soon. At least you have a little cheer-upper with you!
