We got our first Christmas card in the mail today. It was exciting until I opened it and saw it was from our home security system office.
I’ve been slow getting out the decorations this year. Grant and I went to this sprawling home decor center called Garden Ridge today. I wandered around looking for something to inspire me. Finally I gave up and went to purchase my box of glass votive cups and votive candles. Grant usually chooses the checkout line to start acting like he’s being tortured, but to my relief he was being really well behaved while I was at the opposite end of the cart paying the cashier. Then the moment of truth arrived when I pulled him toward me to push the cart from the front. There he was with an unwrapped Snickers bar half eaten, licking chocolate off his fingers. While I was otherwise occupied he reached over to the candy shelves and helped himself. Of all the choices he could have made, he picked a Snickers. That’s my boy.
My computer (presumably the bearings in the fan) is making a chirping noise. I’m finding it most annoying.
