Christmas Restitution

Yesterday, while running a TON of errands, we stopped at a bank and had to wait a ridiculous amount of time in the lobby. They had a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in their lobby that was right next to the seating area. Big A looked at the tree and said, "Mommy, that tree is very beautiful. I wish WE could have a Christmas tree."

The other patrons in the lobby looked at me with these forlorn looks. like I must be destitute or something to deprive my poor kids of a tree. So, I loudly responded, "Well honey, when we get back from our trip to Disney World, I promise we're going to buy a tree for the house."

Christmas saved. Patrons satisfied. Mommy gets big hug. Score.

So, while we're traveling "round the world", there will still be new stuff here at The Spot! Thanks to the scheduling function and some WONDERFUL blogging/IRL friends of mind, you'll still get my most popular entries each week, plus some blogging brilliance from some guest posters. So, please show them the same love that you show me. Mwah! And I'll tell Mickey that you said "hi".

Mommy...I wish we could have a Christmas tree. Like the bank. Like Angie's spot. Like everyone else.

But...we have evil kitties. Who would eat said tree.

We are contemplating putting it up. And watching to see what kind of hijinx will ensue...but I am not sure that I am that brave.
