Will He Notice?

Mr. SP has been out of town all week and returns home today. Yesterday I got my hair colored and cut with a new style. I now have bangs and layers that frame my face. I’m wondering if Mr. SP will notice that something is different. What do you think? Will he notice?

I’m beginning to come to the realization that my house is not going to get decorated for Christmas the way I had envisioned. On a positive note, my living room tree is decorated and I really have enjoyed the lights each evening. The only free time that I have this weekend is a few hours on Sunday. My goal is to make my monogram wreath for the front door, get the outside wreaths up, make a wreath for over the mantel, and to get the mantel decorated. There is so much more that I want to do, but time is running out. We are leaving on the 15th for a ski trip, so I’m going to do what I can, enjoy it, and not worry about what I didn’t do.

We have a party to go to tonight, one at 1 pm Saturday, another Saturday evening, and in between we’ve got to travel 1 1/2 hours to pick up a banjo that Mr. SP bought. Saturday is busy!

All you tennis ladies… Did your USTA rating change on Monday? I stayed 3.0, thank goodness. Mr. SP moved up to 3.5, so no more 6.0 mixed doubles for us. We are going to play 7.0 mixed doubles this winter on the same team, but with different partners.



  1. DOTR is so unobservant, he never notices anything unless you point it out.

    Your weekend sounds like mine–they are trying to pack every single thing into these two days. I don’t even have my tree up, so you are way ahead of me (I have 2 pumpkins and two pots of dead mums on my front porch).

  2. I bet he will be so glad to see you that he WILL notice, especially when you get all dolled up for the par-tay! Do post a pic so we can see!
    And I am with you, that the decorating may be scaled back this year!!!So little time!

  3. We really *need* to see a picture of your cute new hairstyle.

    I hope you got alot of decorating done. Wish you could come help me with mine!

  4. We are decorating a little bit at a time. I get so overwhelmed when we take out all the boxes and trip over them while we decorate. It seems to be working so far. Just not getting it done quickly!

    I went to school at Mary Baldwin for a couple of years…I would love to visit Staunton again.

    As for my tennis rating…it went up to 3.0. I wish I was finding more time to play!!! It’s hard when we go indoors.

    Happy Decorating!
