Returns & Grandma

We didn't put a tree up this year because the one we have would take up too much room. I saw a 9' pre-lit slim line tree at Wal-Mart that I wanted, but we didn't want to spend the money. On the morning of the 26th I woke up at 5:45 am and decided that I would go to the stores for the after Christmas sales. AC had told me that the stores would open at 6 am, so I rushed and got to Wal-Mart at 6:20 to find out that they didn't open until 7 am. However, the nice folks are Wal-Mart let us in at about 10 minutes early and guess what I got? A 9' pre-lit slim line tree for $62! I am so excited for next year to put it up. It was the last tree, so obviously it was meant to be:)

Then I started thinking (I should have just went home)... I have tree decorations (thanks to Martha Stewart) I bought a few years ago that all go together, gold and maroon are the colors. I really like them, but I am partial to silver now. So I decided to buy ornaments to switch to silver and blue. I bought an obscene amount of ornaments and Target and then a tons from Martha Stewart at KMart. When I got home I was looking at the wreath and garland (red and gold) that I spent a bunch of money on this year and decided with help from my husband to keep and use what we already have. That meant that I had to return tons of stuff. I was mad at myself for making more work for myself to do. That was my 26th.

Today I returned the rest of the items, made a trip to Archiver's and have been trying to organize my scrap room since.

A Grandma update. Yesterday she had the procedure and they removed 3 stones. I called this morning and Denise said that Grandma is real yellow and not feeling good. This evening they said that she has more stones stuck in the gallbladder. I am going tomorrow morning to see her and hopefully she will be feeling better. My Dad will call later on tonight with another update. Thanks for your thought and good wishes.
