Sunday Yet Again

I swear the weekend just flew by.  Last night I went to bed with a cold, achy ribs, and a sore throat is is quite red.  Still the same this morning.

J and I had planned on going to church on post today because it was closer to home, however J decided he didn't want to go.  I did want to go but not if it would put him in a foul mood for the rest of the day.  Maybe next week if I feel up to it.

I have no clue how I'm going to feel next weekend.  It depends on a lot of things.  Next weekend I should know if this cycle worked or if it is a bust.  If it is a bust I'll be starting a new cycle and I'll not want to go anywhere while I'm bleeding.  I think my lady friends will understand.

J and I are talking about maybe purchasing a real tree this year.  I do have a tree stand that I bought when I was single in 2002 that I never used.  I was going to put up a real tree that year but with my work schedule and late night closings I never did have the time to do any more than draw the 6 foot artificial down from my parents' attic.  They were living in their other house and I had a four bedroom to myself and my two cats.    Kind of nice but really lonely.

Hoping I can get J to go shopping with me to purchase a tree topper and make some memories to keep of when we made that purchase.  I had to explain it to him as he just told me to go out and buy one.

I'd rather not buy a pre-lit tree if we do buy a new artificial one.  I have a 4 foot tree I put up on a table.  I do realize that the post homes, for the enlisted, don't have large living rooms and part of the space we have is also considered the dining room.  We use the family room off the kitchen for the dining room as it more convenient for dining.

One reason why I'm holding off on buying a larger artificial tree is that I have no clue if I'll have the space for it next year.  One way or the other we won't be here in this house next year.  Either J will ETS or he'll be moved if he can re-enlist.  By the end of this year we'll know more until then we are still waiting.


  1. I love our pre lit tree, but also put extra lights on it. We have a thing for bright trees. HOpe you get good news next weekend :)

    1. J likes to have control over the lights and they have to be clear. Really I have no preference for clear or color.

  2. I've always done artificial trees, when I was younger my parents bought real ones but it turned out that myself and two of my brothers were allergic to the real ones! I like my fake tree though. I don't really care for the pre-lit ones... I rather enjoy putting the strands up though :) Whatever you decide to do, make sure to share photos!

    I can understand wanting to get the topper together. I hope he gets it and participates, even if it's not a big deal to him he should acknowledge that it's a big deal to you.

    1. My parents swear that when I was a kid that just once they bought a real tree. I must have been so young that I don't recall.

  3. GRR on the still waiting. Although I do suppose that it means that you all have more time :D so thats good!!

    I do like fake tress. But i esp dont like fake trees with lights already on them!!

    I hope that church on post is a good one. I had to go to serveral and prayed on them for some time before we found "our" church
