40 Days of Throwback Thanks
On a recent episode of the Happier podcast, the hosts urged the listener to choose a Christmas motto. I've decided to adopt the motto "embrace immaturity." I'm already a kid at heart (10 years teaching preschoolers will do that to you--or run you stark raving crazy), so I'm making my Christmas more fun by celebrating it through the eyes of a child. Plus, I grew up poor, so any gift I got and any fun I had was a blessing.
Something I've always wanted since I was a kid was a train set to go around the Christmas tree or a Christmas village. While perusing the shelves at the thrift store, I found said train set for $8.00. I figured if it didn't work, I was only out a few dollars and the charity supported by the thrift store still wins. Happily, it did work. I couldn't figure out how to get the suspension clamp to work, so I put the tracks around the foot of the tree. I'll add to the tableau when I can, but for now I'm happy.
