Don’t forget the mistletoe!
I know I said that we didn’t have to worry about Christmas for another month, but I thought it would be nice to at least give it a tiny bit of thought.
Last year it was our first Christmas at our new home. We bought our first Christmas tree, bought new ornaments, wrapped presents, and put them under the tree. It was nice to do, even though it’s only the two of us at home. Luckily for our Christmas decorations, our cat McTavish didn’t destroy the wrapping paper, nor did he try to knock the ornaments off of the tree.
This year, we’ll probably have the same set up. We did buy a big screen TV a couple of months ago, which we said would be our Christmas gift to us this year, but I’m thinking a few little presents are well deserved as well.
I am dreading, however, the constant playing of Christmas songs at my work. Definitely NOT something to look forward to. There’s this incredibly stressful Jingle Bells song that plays. It’s by Barbara Streisand (gag!). If you’ve heard this version before, I’m sure you hate it as much as I do. It makes me want to throw the radio out into the street and drive over it with my car (I don’t really have anger management problems- I swear!) I dare you to listen to it.
Sitting here, writing this post…I just remembered something. As I look up, I laugh. The mistletoe is still hanging from the lamp above the island in our kitchen. One less thing to put up this year!
Do you have any plans yet for Christmas?
See you tomorrow morning!
