Saturday we went to Silver Dollar City with both of our sons and daughter-in-law. It seems like we spent 90 percent of the time walking around searching for specific things we wanted to see or do. The place is laid out so as to make everything really hard to find. You can go there dozens of times and never memorize where everything is located in relation to everything else. My preference would be for walking around and doing things as we come to them but it was okay. I’ve been there many times before so I didn’t really miss out on anything. I enjoyed getting to see all the Christmas lights. Silver Dollar City after dark in December is spectacular. It used to be primarily an arts and crafts park and I guess it still is but in the last couple of decades they’ve added a number of rides.
Of course we got home very late. I got between five and six hours of sleep Sunday morning so I was happy to be able to veg out in front of the TV all day. It was a pretty good day of football. We watched the Ravens vs. Redskins. I didn’t really care who won that one but it was a fun game to watch. I took a break in the middle of it to do some laundry and ironing. Then it was the Saints vs. Giants. I was hoping the Saints would win but I don’t dislike the Giants either. Then of course the Packers beat the Lions. (Yay!) We managed to stay up and watch the whole game but I was pretty tired by the time it was over.
And this week the husband is on vacation from work so things are not going to get back to normal around here anytime soon. I have just a little more Christmas shopping I want to do and hopefully will get it done this week.
