|This was 2010.|
Our tradition has become to purchase a new nutcracker each year she's in it. We write on the bottom the roles she had and a couple of family events of that year.
Well, life this year has been more challenging including on the nutcracker front.
First, we had to wait until we had a little cash and a little gas.
Second, we had to find one.
You see, it's not usually that big of deal to find a nutcracker. Many stores often had a aisle full from which to choose with sizes and styles as varied as there are versions of The Nutcracker!
But this year was different. I don't know if it was because we had to wait until 2 days before Christmas or because nutcrackers were just in low supply. Regardless, finding a nutcracker was challenging.
Store after store....no nutcracker.
Then I got a lead. Guess where I found a nutcracker?
