Sometimes when I sit down and prepare to write a blog, I think of all the things I want to share but when it gets down to it I feel too lazy to get into every detail. I’ll use a semi-summarized version.
Soooooo…. yesterday Lisa and I went out to see my friend Lisa K. After that we went to Costco. I wanted to stop by Costco since it was on the way and we needed some more plastic drinking cups. On our way to Costco we first stopped at a Christmas Tree… place. I’m not sure what you’d call it. We looked around at some of the trees and checked some of the prices. Lisa wanted a real tree this year, and I am more than okay with that. Unfortunately, I really didn’t want to stick around too long because I had to pee something awful and I didn’t see any restrooms there. We headed back over to Costco. Also it was raining… a little.
For the record, we only wanted a small tree. At that place, a small douglas fir was about $20 and I don’t think that includes a stand. I saw that the medium/smallish sized stands were almost just as much. The noble fir was more expensive, which I think is normal.
Anyway, moving on… So we went to Costco and I finally got to pee. YES! We then casually pushed a cart around.
(skipping more details)
I stop in the aisle so Lisa can go look at something and while standing there a woman ten feet away was announcing the fact that they had real Oregon Christmas trees. I asked about them and they were selling Oregon-grown noble firs WITH the stands… for $22.
Sooooo…. we bought one and brought it home and now it’s in our living room. The end! Perhaps I’ll post a photo once it’s decorated a bit. We’re going to keep it simple.
I actually slept in until about 11am today. For some people that may not be any big deal, but for me it’s nearly unheard of.
I didn’t sleep well at all, though, so there’s that. I woke up quite frequently, either for a trip to the bathroom or just because my body didn’t feel like giving me rest.
This might interfere with today’s plans slightly. I made plans to go visit my friend Lisa K today. I don’t get to go see her very often. This time my wife is going with me so we’ll all be able to hang out for a bit. I would have liked Chris to come with us but he seemed to want to stay home when we invited him. I’ll see if I can persuade him with a cheesecake.
Well, I suppose I’d better go get ready for the day.
