Got MY Christmas present today!

November 25th, 2012 at 06:00 am

Our friends that we occasionally vacation with texted me today to invite me to lunch. I hadnt been out of the house since Tuesday, so it sounded great to me. We went to a little bbq place in a nearby historic town. It was such a fun outing. It was great to visit and enjoy the bbq meal. My appetite isnt fully back, but it still was tasty.

I stopped by Target afterwards. I didnt have bows for the christmas presents yet and needed a couple of other things. Last summer, I decided that I wanted to get a pretty, feminine set of sheets and a bedspread for my bed for Christmas- my plan, to change out the bedding while the hub is gone to something I love- just for me. Smile When I picked out the set then, it was going to cost around $250...really over extravagant in my I wanted to really think about it. I have been back 2-3 times since last summer, rethinking it through..Was it something I really wanted?? Yes. Even after several months, this was still my only gift wish. Today while I was there I thought about a plan B. They had a white set of flannel sheets for $24 (for a king-sized bed!!) and there was this beautiful white super-uber soft shabby-chic blanket with pink flowers for $69. Hmmm...$93 vs $250..So, I bought them. My bed is remade and waiting, I cant tell you how comfy the combo of the flannel sheets and that blanket are. And WHITE? I have a logger/mechanic husband, so white is not an option normally. But this is just for me during those weeks when he is in Alaska. I LOVE my new bedding!! Merry Christmas to me!!

I got a little farther on the house today and got more wrapping done, including bows and ribbons. I asked DD3 if she would be able to take the donations to Goodwill next week and to make a dump run, since I ran out of room in our trash and recycle bin- she said of course. Once she does that, the house will be done and I will be in maintain mode. What a great feeling!!

Tomorrow is my last day off. I plan to finish the housework, set the tree up, do some grocery shopping and prep for the week ahead. Tomorrow will be a busy day~!

    LOL. Ray, I did that, too, years ago. I bought a pretty bedding set to use when DH was on the slope. Then one time I forgot to change it before he came home. Guess what we are still using? The pretty ones!
