A Griswold Moment
Last weekend, my dad put up hooks around the eaves of my house so I could have Christmas lights! I thought about doing it myself the weekend before, but I wasn’t exactly sure how. Then I got sick. When I talked to my sister on Sunday, after my quarantine had lifted, we had the following conversation:
Me: I’m pretty tired.
Debra: You didn’t go hanging Christmas lights or anything, did you?
Me: Pops did most of it. I just watched.
Debra: Are you serious?
Me: I wanted lights! I wasn’t climbing around, I swear!
Debra: YOU GET AN F IN RECOVERING FROM THE FLU.
Actually, I am still taking it easier than I normally would. I’m back at work, but last night I rested and didn’t try to accomplish anything. I’ve been in bed no later than 10:00, a habit I hope to maintain since my bedtime had been creeping later and later. I want to be healthy for the rest of 2012 at least!
Anyway, my lights make me very happy. They didn’t even cost me anything, since I had a bucket full of lights bought on clearance several years ago. I’ll have interior Christmas decor pics on Friday!
