I am so glad that it's Friday, more than the usual. This has been a busy  and stressful week at work..and it was only 4 days because I had Monday off to get the microwave fixed!

Speaking of the microwave, it's all better and back in it's perch above the stove. I won't go into the details but lets just say that it was a total rip off and I am writing a scathing letter to GE for charging a ridiculous price for very little labor!

After I got my million dollar microwave fixed I went to the Goodwill store to see about adding to my small Christmas tree collection. I picked up these two beauties:

The one on the right is a glass tree with removable ornaments. It was brand new in the box! The tree on the left is a silver musical tree. It spins slowly around and plays "The Twelve Days of Christmas" It's a little tarnished but that just adds to it's character! So cute! Plus I got a pack of three little tree ornaments! All for $5!

Did I mention how much I love Goodwill?

If anyone is looking for a good book I highly recommend this one! One of his best I think!!

Got a busy weekend coming up! Two parties to go to and I have barely started my shopping!

I'll be back on Sunday to tell you all about it!

I would (and have) paid anything to have a working microwave!

I love Goodwill too!

Just finished "11/22/63"--it was good. Creeped me out when he returned and found the future so horrid with everything dying, but ended nicely.

I'm sorry to have missed this post. Those trees are adorable. You also know I love Goodwill and go at least once a month. I usually find several books I bring home.

Have to tell you this: I went into a thrift store last week (it's one that benefits abused women). Anyway I found a practially brand new swing for Rylan with a matching high chair. $32.00 for both. I was so excited!!! And, a couple of weeks ago at another thrift store, I found a brand spanking $200.00 new car seat for $20.00. I wish we could go thrifting together!!

Hope you had fun at the parties this past weekend, and have a better week. Love ya!

Merry Christmas sweet friend!!!!

hi Jeanette! I did the same thing with a microwave once, and learned it is cheaper to just buy a new one... sad isn't it??
I wish you and your a very Merry Christmas!

p.s. thank you so much for leaving your "calling card!"
