Last day of insanity... I am here to tell you that I am FOR SURE not a daily posting-type blogger. After the past thirty days, I'm not so very sure that posting ever again is for me, but I guess I kinda have to. To, y'know... have a blog. I think the only reason I completed the whole month is pure muleheadedness. I said I was gonna, by cracky!
I will take a couple of days off of posting and catch up on all of my correspondence... for some reason I seem to have only just so much stamina for writing. If I post? No emails. If I email? No post.
It all boils down to crappy typing skills.
We have put up our Christmas decorations. All except for the lighted ceramic Christmas Village that Dadguy and I love so much, and therefore don't feel bad that we will not be laying it about for the demolishment- I mean ENJOYMENT of the girls. Really, there is no place to put it. All full up, no room in the inn. It's time to get on the finishing of that basement. Except we won't be getting on anything till the start of next year. We also have not put out any lights on the house, although we have been promising our kids and ourselves that this would be the year. We bought the lights (not enough), and the spiffy plastic hanger doo-dads (not enough), borrowed a ladder (too short) and got out there only to realise that someone would have to actually get up on top of our roof... to hang those things, and the lights etc....
Ahem... acrophobia, two solid doses of it. The crap! Do I look like a monkey?
Don't answer that. No, really.... anyone makes any stupid monkey jokes in the comments and I'll be hitting delete button.
So we will be putting up lights if I can find some teenager willing to do it for a pittance. To be frank, the whole "light yer house" gig has lost it's luster for me. I'd much rather strap the girls into their car seats and drive around admiring the fruits of YOUR labors! Because, hey! Kids... strapped down! That's a basic ingredient for fun in my book!
