Gingerbread cookies, and presents, and an excuse to spend lots of money shopping, and parties, and FAMILY parties (which are a whole other genre --my favorite), and did I mention TREATS, and decorations, and Christmas carols on the radio (24 hours a day for me all through December --even the sappy ones --I love 'em), and church music programs. It's all coming, and as much as Jeff moans and groans, he can't stop it or even slow it down. "you always need something to stress about" he says, and he's right, but this is my FAVORITE stuff to stress about! I even bought my Christmas tree today. I got skunked last year because I waited too long, and the big ones were all sold, so I jumped on it this year.
Isn't it pretty? Pre-lit, and 12 feet tall. Bye bye personal money for a month and a half, but it's worth it. Stunning. Stunning. I've got to have something big in my front window, because both Jeff and I refuse to climb our Matterhorn of a roof to put up lights. "I choose life". (Although I wish HE'D be braver).
