happy friday?

I have to admit, having to work Friday nights and/or the weekend nights really don't make for such an exciting week end. But at least I can look forward to tomorrow & Sunday. Some QT with the husband who I haven't spent a night with since Monday. Sigh. Just gotta make it through work tonight.

I saw this photo and it reminded me of the days when my family used to drive around different neighborhoods looking at other people's Christmas lights. It was a little tradition we had. There were always neighborhoods that went all out!

It is a bit extreme, but secretly, it makes me really happy. I love this time of the year.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I hear ya on the quality time on the weekends!! my mister wonderful works late afternoon evening shifts at the hospital (he's an RN in the O.R.) so I'm already in bed asleep for 3 hours before he even comes home at night! Weekends are all we have to actually see each other. Have a good weekend!
