We are apparently experiencing technical difficulty with our cable here at the (brick) ranch. Our internet access has been spotty today, something that seems to occur everytime it rains. Go figure. Plus my dear Husband totally hogged the computer all weekend, so I've been absent from the blogging world and instead feel as if I've been stuck on Planet Biting Baby for the past few days. Or maybe that's just because I saw Zathura with Sister yesterday.
But here I am at last! It's 4:00 p.m. in beautifully soggy North Carolina today and my blogging minutes are limited since Bean will likely wake up from her afternoon nap any second. Up until now I've kept myself busy inside today with various Christmas related activities. We put up our tree yesterday, and somehow managed to cram those 5 boxes stuffed with ornaments onto our tree! Yay for that. But I do have 2 more boxes full of assorted decorations still to decide what to do with. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I'm getting to where it simply won't do just to put up a Christmas tree in the house. I've got to also put up tinsel star garlands around doorways, strings of lights in any houseplant big enough to hold them, paper garlands on the mantel, bells wound around porch railings, you name it, we're doing it. Sister is ecstatic, of course, and I guess that's why we're going so hog-wild. The days of Christmas done tastefully are numbered in this household. Now, if we could only get Husband to agree to colored lights on the tree instead of white.
Quick, fellow bloggers! Colored lights or white?
