Lighting Memo

If Katie is trying to read Belly Button Book by the light of the blue glowing numerals belonging to the digital alarm clock on the nightstand when I'm trying to get her to go to sleep, then the alarm clock is too darned bright.

And is now face down. As is Katie. :)

While Katie Was Sleeping

Once we got Katie to fall asleep (approximately two hours after we started trying, right around midnight), we returned downstairs to decorate the Christmas tree without her assistance. Our nine-foot tall Fraser fir has consumed ornaments and lights with a vengeance, but is now looking very much like a Christmas tree. daisy_knotwise is hanging the last few -- unbreakable! -- ornaments on the bottom of the tree. It used to be that we hung unbreakable ornaments there because of the cats and dogs.

Now we have a one-year-old girl. :)

(Pictures will follow tomorrow, once we've actually had some sleep.)

Television Interruptus

So on Friday, I picked up the Frys ad and saw that the big-screen TV that I've been lusting after for more than a year now was on sale. That's fine, it goes on sale about once every three weeks or so.

Except this time it was on sale for $200 less than it's ever been priced before. Oh, dear.
