I was in a lousy mood after work, so we went out for a burger … then went to the Building 19 before they go out of business (but nothing was left except junk). The Building 19 was so dismal that Mr. suggested going to the Christmas Tree Shop so we could get a cheerier bargain-shopping vibe. I got two Christmas mugs. (I've got about five or six now. If I had the space to display them, I'd start a collection.) Really enjoyed shopping there---Christmas stuff everywhere now, of course! It was a great pick-me-up.

I'm off from work tomorrow, but I have to get up early so be ready when the tree guys come to take down the tree that we found out is rotten inside. I've been anxious to get that taken care of before a winter storm causes it to fall on the house, cars, and/or neighbor's house. It'll be a long, noisy, expensive day, but it'll be worth it to get that load off my mind.

It took me quite a while to get through all the posts after work. Seeing all the Christmas camaraderie here does my soul good. I hope you folks know I love you all.


Glad your evening out cheered you up!! Hopefully the tree guys won't take real long!!!
