Getting Ready for Christmas yet?
I have maybe 3 presents left to wrap, and 2 of them haven't been delivered yet. So I'm feeling pretty good about Christmas.
I've even decorated the house --- sorry but that means I've hung up stockings. We stopped doing a tree and regular decorations a few years ago because of the cats, and our general laziness. They just can't keep the tree alone! and with the Kid - basically, really an adult - no one really wants to decorate much. So I hang up my stockings, put a few Christmas themed nick knacks out and and envy other folks' efforts.
That is until they have to take it down after Christmas, then I feel ever so slightly smug cause it takes me 5 minutes to undo the decorations, instead of 5 hours.
Because Christmas is really about what's going on inside the heart, not what's on your hearth. Right?
Then again, if I ever win the lottery, I'll go full out Christmas decorations -- and hire people to help take it down.
So maybe next weekend I'll finally get some jewelry made up, before I need to gear up for cookies and candy making.
