Back from hiatus and losing my mojo....

I'm back after a little unplanned blogging hiatus. The kids were out of school all last week, so between having them home (and hogging the computer) plus Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping, I've just not had the time or energy to post anything. We had a very nice Thanksgiving with lots of good food and time with family. And, my daughter and I went out with some friends for Black Friday shopping. We arrived at Walmart around 1:30 a.m. and left around 5:45 a.m. -- seriously, that's waaay too much time in a Walmart. It was fun, though and I did buy a couple of gifts that were pretty good deals.

We put up our Christmas tree over the weekend. But, all the other decorations were still in the basement. Tonight, I had the brilliant idea to carry all the storage boxes upstairs and unpack them. They are really in such a mess and need to be reorganized. Half of the items we don't even use anymore so I thought this was the perfect time to declutter and condense. Well, you can see that I have dragged everything out of the boxes and have it sitting on the floor. So far, I have two boxes filled with stuff for Goodwill (it feels so good to get rid of stuff we don't use).

But, now I'm starting to feel tired and I think I'm losing my mojo. I really need to get this all finished before going to bed. And, I'm trying to watch 'Brothers and Sisters' and the sound is all messed up. What's up with that? I sure hope it's a tv technical difficulty and not our television going kapuut!

Do you have your tree or other Christmas decorations up yet?

ha, we put up the tree on Friday I think....all we have on it are the lights. I have too much cleaning to do...sigh. I asked my husband if we could just have it plain this year...he didn't buy it. :-)
