It better not be – Robert isn’t done with his Christmas cards yet! (Um, mine are “in the mail.”)
It’s been a busy month! This is the busy time of year at work which coincides nicely with the busy time of year in my personal life – add in a dash of taking Robert to neurology appointments, dealing with contractors and electricians and permits (which may all be for naught – it’s a long story and I’ll have to explain in a different post but the garage conversion has turned into being much, much more expensive and problematic than originally thought).
Forget about all that – it’s Christmas!
Christmas cards may be a work in progress right now but one thing we do have finished: our decorations (which is no small feat). Our tree, despite a rocky start, looks very festive and is just waiting for presents to be wrapped and put around it (still on our list). Indoor decorations can be checked off the list (as soon as I unpack those kitchen boxes). Every inch of the house is covered with garland or snowmen or candles or countdown calendars (holiday bonus – the decorations do a fantastic job of covering up the dust).
The finishing touches were put on the outside decorations yesterday (I love crossing things off my list!). Aside from needing a permit to display thousands of lights (I kid – a little garage conversion humor), the lights went up fairly smoothly aside from many of them not working this year and having to make numerous runs to the local Holiday Decorations/Cat Food store (otherwise known as Target).
Yes, we made another trip to Target yesterday before we could finish. . .
But they are finished!! (Unless I find something else at Target too cute to pass up). Hmm, I may have a problem. Is there Christmas Decorating Rehab?
Well, before I am “cured” of decorating too much, enjoy the video of our outside décor. (If I knew what I was doing in taking videos, I’d add a bit of holiday music and maybe Photoshop some snow into the picture but since I don’t you will have to imagine “Frosty the Snowman” playing in the background and a blanket of snow on our green, Northern California, grass.)
