Compromise




Im sure you know the song-- "I Would do Anything for Love, But I Won't do That" Well that is my sentiment exactly.

I love my husband. Really...I do.

But he is in love with the idea of getting that God-awful lamp from "A Christmas Story" and prominently displaying it in my front window for all of the neighbors to see.

He even thought it would be a wonderful accent for my Holiday Party two weeks ago.

The phrase "Over my dead body..." may have come out of my mouth. And quite frankly, had he gotten it I may have had the same misstep that Ralphie's mom had when she "accidentally" broke the hideous light fixture.

So while cruising Rite Aid yesterday for vitamins, we stumbled across the lamp and I had to get it for him since things have been crazy and stressful lately. I even prominently displayed it in my front window.

And with some clever photo angles, he get's his wish.


... and I keep my sanity.
