We got a Christmas tree today, and I didn’t have to pay more than $75 for it! Calista and I went out to Lowe’s today, because I had seen some 7.5′ pre-lit trees on their web site for $73.50. When we got there, they had ones that weren’t pre-lit (after the last tree became useless once some of the lights on it died, I decided I’d prefer to string the lights myself) for $99, but 25% off. Then, the cashier scanned some coupon he had at his register, and we got another $10 off, so after taxes, our tree was just $68 and some change! Hooray! We’ll probably set it up next weekend.
My other exciting news for tonight is that the boys SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT last night! And I spent the whole night in my own bed! They went to bed at 8 pm, fussed once around 11:30 pm but without any intervention fell back to sleep within 5 minutes or so, and never made another peep until 7 am. Oh how I hope this continues!
