I love decorating for holidays, especially Christmas. It's my tradition to decorate the day after Thanksgiving. I had gotten the 24 hour Christmas music station on, taken out my big tupperware box of Christmas decorations...only to lift the lid and find MOLD!!
Not everything had mold growing on it, but as we dug deeper to find the source, we found some black mold. At that point we put everything back in the container, closed the lid, and threw the container out in the garbage! I was sooo sad that all my Christmas goodies were gone, but I had heard bad things about black mold, so we thought our health was worth throwing away $200 worth of decorations.
There was a little good news to come from this, I got to go shopping for new stuff. But the bad was that I don't have enough money to replace everything, and some stuff had some funny memories behind it. Oh well, I'll just make new memories with the new stuff!

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!

Not to toot my own horn, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving I made a donation to the Utah Food bank. All week various radio stations have been doing food drives, tugging on the heart strings of their listeners, and it finally got to me and I decided to go to the store and buy some various Thanksgiving-y food items.
As if it weren't enough to just do something nice for those less fortunate...I got rewarded also. They gave me a c.d. of local artists, and some Jazz tickets for the game vs. the Boston Celtics in February. I almost felt guilty taking the prizes....but who am I to refuse??
I know the economy has affected all of us in different ways, but I encourage you to seek out a local charity that you could help out, even if there's not any prizes in it for you. As they said on the radio, if you know where your next meal is coming from then you're better off than a lot of other people out there!!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

I like it, I love it...

...I want some more of it. Bolt, that is! Matt and I saw the movie this weekend, and I loved it!! In fact I think that Matt and I laughed more and harder than anyone else in the theatre. The cool thing was that we saw it in 3D too! I would highly recommend it to anyone, especially if you are an animal lover like me! It's fantastic!

I Thought This Day Would Never Come..

Finally!! I found gas in the Salt Lake valley for under $2. Yes, I filled up at $1.99 per gallon! When I started driving in 1998 and gas was less than a dollar per gallon, I never would have thought about being happy paying $2 per gallon. Well after paying over $4 a gallon during the summer, I was so ecstatic to be paying $1.99 that I wanted to take a picture and scrapbook my receipt!

I Rocked The Vote!

I did my civic duty and voted today. I wasn't planning on it, but since I didn't have to even go out of my way or wait in a line I decided that I might as well. Some people waited in line for hours just to vote, so I would have felt lazy for not taking 5 minutes to go and cast my ballot.
