Decorating the tree

I read Lisa's blog about what she accomplished yesterday and the goals she has set for just the next week. Makes me feel like a lazy slug. Here's what I did yesterday: went grocery shopping, read email, baked a batch of cookies, read email, ate lunch, took a short nap, read email, went to the grocery store again to get some stuff for dinner because we're decorating the tree and the kids and grandkids are coming over, read email, ate dinner, baked another batch of cookies, decorated the tree, read email, went to bed. I think I need a plan.

So anyhow, this year the grandkids did the tree decorations. Here is the tree:

There are lights on it but it's too bright to see them. Notice the distribution of the ornaments, this is what you get when the decorators are all under 3 feet tall.

And none of this 'one ornament to a branch' rule. More is better, obviously. I laugh everytime I walk by the tree.

I have a weight loss site/blog. It pretty much covers weight loss related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)
