We haven’t put up Christmas decorations for the last couple of years, but this year it was time to do it again. Jim came up with the idea of making the stabilizer tripod into a Christmas tree, which is what you see above. I liked having the garland on it so it shows during the day.
Inside we put up our little table tree with fiber optic lights. And you can see in the reflection in the window that we put up a string of lights above the kitchen slide as well. It all looks very festive and puts us in the holiday mood.
We’ve each bought our Christmas gifts already. I got my Kindle which I am really enjoying a lot.
Jim got a new TomTom GPS. It’s a 540TM that has a huge 5 inch screen and best of all, has lifetime traffic and map editions. I like that it speaks the name of the streets! With our amazon discount and TomTom’s 20% discount, it was a good buy.
We went to Elizabethtown last Sunday so Linda Mossman could do some Christmas shopping at Kohl’s. We stopped at Bed, Bath and Beyond for a “look see” and Jim and I found a comforter we both liked, so we got a “us” gift. I really hated the paper-like backed spreads that come with RVs and wanted one for warmth if needed. This one is more tan then it shows in this photo. Jim Mossman is going to show me how to use the bed skirt to cover the valance.
That’s been our week. We are getting tired and are in the basic “survival” mode, which is work, eat and sleep. This week there will be even less time between eat and sleep as amazon.com changed our start time to an hour earlier; so now we start work at 5 a.m. which means we have to get up at 3 a.m. and leave for work at 4:15 a.m. We get home about 5 p.m. have a drink with neighbors, cook dinner and eat then watch news and in bed by 7:30 p.m. or so. But there is only three weeks left…we will survive.
There is only one road in to and out of the fulfillment center, so there is a lot of congestion. There are actually two traffic cops directing traffic each morning and evening to keep traffic flowing. Sometimes we have to wait 10-15 minutes in line trying to get in to and out of work. That’s why we leave for work so early.
That’s it folks. Remember you are loved!
