I’m a sucker for deals. We could have bought lights this year — we were sorely tempted — but when it comes down to it, we’ll get more joy out of it next year when we have nubbin to show them to. Ornaments and a tree were much easier to resist.
Until today. For today, things went on…clearance.
Wandering through the aisles, grabbing boxes of ornaments and yards of lights, I talked to the munchkin poking around in my belly and probably looked a bit like a crazy person. “No, honey, that’s not the right color scheme.” “Owl ornaments? Sure, why not.”
There will be lights for you next year, Zoe. So many, many lights. I can’t wait for you to see them.
