I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.
What's your opinion of the conceal/carry gun law that went into effect in Wisconsin this month? I am very aware that our world is not safe. But, I am also not ready to purchase a gun. Will the law bring on more crime and shootings? Will the gun crime be reduced? I'd like to hear what you have to say!
If you were one of the many shoppers who stood in line, stayed up late or got up early to hit the sales on Black Friday, good for you. I hope you got some great deals. I will never do it; never have; never will. But, that's my choice. The deals are meant to "lure" customers into a store so they buy more. Then again, you can get some good deals if you stick to your budget and don't buy on impulse. That's what the big box stores want you to do....buy things you may not have intended to purchase. I'm old fashioned - don't appreciate the greed and I want, I want, I want of Christmas. I do like the time spent with family and friends - handmade gifts, homemade goodies, sharing with others and just the "colors" of the holidays.
Try to get out and enjoy the beautiful Christmas displays that so many people take the time to set up around and on their homes. Don't forget Candy Cane Lane in West Allis. If you can, walk through it - you'll get to see each and every display up close and personal.
