Way too early

Today while driving around I noticed that one of my preset stations in the car is playing back-to-back Christmas music. Now I love the holiday cheer and all that. But we haven't even had Thanksgiving yet. I don't feel Christmasy yet--but apparently it is going to be shoved down my throat whether I like it or not. I also noticed a Christmas tree lot is going up. No trees yet. I suspect they will be there next Friday. How can people keep their tree "alive" that long? Curt and I went to the Gap today for their friends & family sale. They were playing Christmas music, too. I asked about that. The cashier told us that a few years ago they just started with the Christmas "cheer" right after Halloween since I guess you don't really buy gifts for people at Thanksgiving. Which maybe we should change that. What do you think?

I am typing this post on our new iMac that we just got yesterday. Curt set it all up today. We have this beautiful flat screen monitor and this tiny keyboard that I am still getting used to. I am actually supposed to be taking Chapter 15 quiz online. I am procrastinating. There are so many more fun things to do than take a quiz.

Curt and I hit the Gap sale this evening and then hit our favorite sushi place to get take-away. We had a yummy dinner. Yes, and I had sushi for lunch yesterday. I could eat it every day.

OK, I must get the quiz over with.
Hope you are all having a good weekend.

The lady across the park from Nana and Poppy was putting her tree up when we were there the week after Halloween. It literally blew my mind. But I guess if you go all out with the decorations, at least you get to enjoy them longer? I dunno - I can't get it together to even put sweats in an Anthropologie sack right now to get us all out the door.

I love Gap!

Yes, it is WAY too early for Christmas music. They are playing it here, too. My neighbor has decorations up already. I think we should at least wait until after Thanksgiving, which came earlier this year anyway.
