How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Not yet, but coming to a blog near you.

I do not like the "holidays." I do not see a reason to wait to buy socks and underwear for loved ones. If they need them in October, buy them then, don't save them for Christmas!

That said, the Older Kid and the Daughter-In-Law are planning a holiday bash at his Reserve Unit. She's runnin' the FRG (Family Readiness Group), the unit's support for soldiers and their families. They'll be having snacks and such this coming month while packing up the boxes of goodies to ship to the deployed folks.

I was really happy to take them to my favorite junque store (the Dollar Tree, in fact) to purchase party supplies (decorations, cups, plates, napkins) to "happy up" the garage-like room that serves as Party Central.

Best Black Friday shopping I ever did! Wallet and heart are both a lot lighter!

Is there a National Guard or Reserve Unit in your hometown? Call the FRG office and ask how you can help make the holidays brighter for the ones left behind. You'll be glad you did!
