I admit it. I LOVE Walmart. For one thing, they sell a lot of my books. And I do mean A LOT. For another, they carry the chicken jerky strips my dogs love–a one-stop shop, with very few exceptions. Who cares? you may be asking. Is this a blog or a commercial for Walmart?
It’s a blog, definitely. Up until yesterday, a Walmart run involved driving to the other end of Spokane, or out to the valley. Now, we have a brand new store right in Airway Heights, some ten minutes from here, and I’m jazzed! Last night, I bought 10 sets of Noma Christmas lights–the old-fashioned bubble lights we always had on our Christmas tree when I was a little girl. Noma packaged them in the old design–the nostalgia version–and I was sold.
You can tell Christmas is getting close. Every day, my mail box is stuffed with catalogs. I throw most of them away, but a few of them always grab me, which is why I’m on the She’ll-Buy-Anything list. I’ve already got a few gifts stashed away, and I’m looking forward to decorating a tree. Since I will be in New York and Las Vegas during most of the first half of December, I need to get cracking.
Is Veteran’s Day too early to put up a tree?
