2008 Holiday Lamp

I got a lamp at Home Depot. It was regularly $49.95. One of the store walkers looked up the price for me and said $18.50. I debated buying it because I didn’t know where I’d store it, but I talked myself into it because it will look dashing next to my babies in our holiday pictures coming up this year. By the time I got to the checkout, the price dropped to $12.50! That’s 75% off! And Leissl, among others, approved of it.

Still, I have since decided one of my goals for 2008 is to ask “Where will I put this?” and have a good answer before I buy. This was a purchase made in 2007, the last day of such, so I’m still on track. As a matter of fact, today, Jan. 1, I took out of my basket two other Christmas items that were not necessary and I didn’t want the responsibility of having to store. I feel relieved, frankly, that I don’t have to deal with them. Now I just have to figure out where to put our lamp for a few months. Christmas starts in July, doesn’t it?

About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
