Day 229 – November 25, 2018
This is what it looks like when you ask your kids to take down and put away your holiday outdoor gear. Of course, when I ask them why they would do that, I get that oblivious look across their face. So instead of being able to get rolling and finish hanging the lights, I end up untangling, relighting, rewiring, all of last years stock. Worse yet, there were still 3 other buckets needing to be brought out. As a result, I was unable to make any dent in my bucket lists (see what I did there?). Even more frustrating, I didn’t have some of the replacement parts necessary so I decided to brave the flood of people at Lowes to pick up those parts and possibly some plastic lawn decor and pay with money I really don’t have. But I will not have my house looking like some discarded set from Nightmare Before Christmas. It must be done, so I did, and it is. In short, not a lot got done today. The boys left to go back, earlier than they were planning, conveniently leaving the task to me. Hopefully this tangled web they weaved will not take much longer to sort out and I can get my festive on. Until then, onward and upwards. Remember a smile is contagious!
