The halls are decked!


Yesterday I took a vacation day to run errands – most importantly, to get snow tires on my car before a blizzard hits. I ran to JoAnn Fabrics to look for cheap fabric for the kitchen curtains, and got lost in the endless stock of 1/2 off ribbon and fake pine. The holiday spirit hit me hard, and I literally raced home to get our place looking festive.

It doesn’t hurt that I have 3 large totes FULL of Christmas paraphenalia….

I did do some actual work on the house as well; primed about half of the foyer walls with two coats of Kilz. We swear by this stuff – and it’s got stain blockers to keep the disgusting smoke stains from seeping up.

I feel you on the holiday mania. I went to Hobby Lobby last week on my lunch break and spent entirely too long browsing the 50 percent off Christmas ornament aisles. Yesterday I bought a My Little Pony ornament at Toys R Us.

Somebody please stop me from buying anything else this year!

Haha – I almost bought a My Little Pony ornament at Walmart the other day, but it was plastic and $5 and I decided that was a ripoff. I love that all of our old toys are back – Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony are all over the toy stores!

Oh yeah, I totally got ripped off on the My Little Pony ornament, but that’s OK. I can chalk it up to holiday insanity.

I actually got teary-eyed in the Care Bears aisle at Wal-mart. Did you see the Care Bears Cousins are back now, too? Lotsa Heart Elephant and the rest …

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
