7 Quick Takes – Vol. 2

I like Friday Quick Takes over at Conversion Diaries. It works for me today!

1. Thanksgiving was special and wonderful. We always watch a Christmas movie on Thanksgiving night. This year it was “Elf”. Yeah, I’ve seen it at least 8 times and I laugh harder every time. I don’t know how it gets funnier every time. (Have I mentioned before that I’m easily entertained?)

2. Today we deck the halls. FuN! So much more fun with everyone home to help.

3. I have almost made it through the NaBloPoMo! I have posted every day in November – Woo Hoo!

4. I still haven’t decided whether Christmas Cards are going to make the budget cut. I really want to send them – we have a terrific photo from our son’s wedding this year. I think it’s too special to pass up. After all, I haven’t travelled in my private jet once this year to save on fuel. (Sorry, I’m still thinking of the automakers’ summit in Washington.)

5. My girls got up at 4:30 to go to Target this morning for big savings. It’s 7:30 (AM!)- they are back from shopping and they scored! Builderman was also out the door before dawn to hunt. I have been drinking coffee in peace. : )

6. We shop together tomorrow for our deals. My proven plan is if you go early (like 8 AM - not 5 AM), you beat all the people who have shopping hangovers from Friday and still hit all the sales. I’m counting on getting most of my shopping finished, though I haven't even started. You see why I'm called Pollyanna?

7. Please leave a comment with 5 adjectives to tell me about you. (You can cheat and use just one noun.) I would love to get to know you. Here’s mine:

Your turn!

Merrie said...

What a fun meme! My 5... today I am - tired, full, satisfied, excited, grateful1

most of the time- optimistic, merrie (okay, I'll use "happy" or "joyful"), peaceful, loving, wacky sense of humor (I love to laugh)

Hi! Enjoyed your quick takes. I love ELF, I need to pull it out to show to my kids this year.

I like the idea to get the people who visit to leave a comment

I'm tired, content, listening, comfy, thoughtful.

Thanks for taking the time to leave 5 adjectives. I love it. ADHD- when you commented on FlyLady, I had no idea what you were talking about. I went back to Jen's blog and figured it out. I love her question - are you living in CHAOS? (Can't HAve Anyone Over Syndrome?) Funny and Helpful!! Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
