Alright. Thanksgiving came and went without a hitch.
Except that my waistline grew, for sure, and some kind of turkey-tornado destroyed my house.
What is it about the holidays? I get uber lazy. I like to be out and about, but when I'm home, I'm cozied up on the couch, not one iota in the mood to do my chores.
I like to sit with my laptop. With hot chocolate. With my sweetie.
The dishes are piled up.
The laundry is, well, piled up.
But OH! The important stuff is done...
I've been working on a few blog designs....and...
The Christmas tree is up!! My mantle is decorated...and I love it!! I absolutely love Christmas decorations!! I love a good nativity scene, but I also have a weakness for snowmen. Love'em.
And, ever since I've had my own tree in my own home, I've been very particular about said tree. Decorated in a 'grown up' style with only white lights and only one or two colors of ornaments. Red and silver, specifically.
There has been a slight breakthrough this year as the kids found the small collection of miscellaneous ornaments and insisted that we include them. I gave in...and now my 'grown up' tree has a few kiddie items to show off. But really, only a few. That collection was really small.
I suppose, at some point, I will have a small tree just for the kids to decorate with ornaments of their liking...and maybe colored lights. Eek!
I seem to be making my day-after-Christmas-sale list way before Christmas.
Snap out of it!
Make it through Christmas first!
And watch the dishes and laundry suffer again. hmph...
