we got a christmas tree and it is all set up in the front room. we are really enjoying it and i am glad we have a tree and lights up outside to help us enjoy the holiday season (even though i have to work on christmas AGAIN this year). it is still in need of a tree topper, but it's still pretty. it was our one year anniversary on monday, and tyrell got me the best present. he got me a gift card to this nice spa in town that does prenatal massages! no doubt this idea was sparked by my constant request for him to rub my aching back. i am really excited. i got him a less perfect, but wanted, weight set. it was not the one he wanted so we took it back... hopefully we can find what he wants.
it snowed all night last night and now we have a few inches of snow on the ground. i have already been a victim of the slippery roads and it's only the first big snow storm, not a good sign. i went to enrichment to sew curtains, but really i just ended up making myself a wreath and watching others make curtains (there were limited sewing machines). but on my way home i slid on the snow as i was rounding a corner and hit a curb. it wasn't all that bad but tyrell told me i am not allowed to do that any more. i am just glad it was only a curb. our neighbor said the free way was like bumper cars. tyrell has given me a few pointers on driving in the snow and hopefully i will remember them when these skills are needed.
