Can We Take It One Day at a Time?

Please allow me to whine for a moment.

I look forward to the holidays. The spirit of the season can be very heartwarming and contagious. I look forward to this time of year as do most all of us.

I understand the marketing aspect of having decorations in the stores early; financially it makes sense. What doesn't make sense to me is for people to already have their Christmas decorations up when we have not even gotten through Thanksgiving.

If you have a situation in which the holiday needs to be celebrated earlier alrighty then. But seriously, do you need to have the outside decorations up too?

My next door neighbor already has a noel reindeer door hangy thing on the door knocker. Not only that, the store tag is still on too!

Someone sure is in a hurry for Christmas to arrive. Me? Not so much. I'm just trying to get through this week.

Peace and Love Peeps.

I'm hearing you loud and clear. I'm good enough with putting up stuff the day after Thanksgiving. We're rushing our lives away.

Want some cheese with that whine? :) Have a great weekend!!!!

Oh... should I take my tree down then? Heehee... just kidding. Uh, my next door neighbor never took hers down one year. Seriously.

Hey, the invite is still open if you're looking for some grub on turkey day. Clarke & Dave will even watch the game with you. No pressure at all, but you know you are welcome.

I hope you made it through the day.
Love you!

it's been snowing here for the past 4 hours.

its starting to feel like christmas around here. i'm not excited one bit.

people are always telling me not to wish for the future months, but i gotta tell ya, it's freakin cold here....i hope the next 6 months fly by as quickly as the past 6.

and yeah, those people/stores with their christmas displays and music blaring thru muzac are enough to make me get all wonked eyed.

much too soon for all that...
