Our first, and most important, chore of the weekend has been taken care of: the Christmas tree.

I've always been a sucker for Christmas, and I insist on having a real tree in the house. We brought out the decorations from the basement, so tomorrow we'll dress it up and make it look all pretty-like.

We also started wrapping some of the presents for our out-of-country relatives, and we'll be shipping them out tomorrow, so everything should be on time for the holidays ....

Probably no time to go to the movies, but if we end up there, we might see The Fighter,. It's supposed to be a stellar performance from Christian Bale, and Marky Mark is always fun to watch.
