I've been all over the place, mood wise, lately. I'm excited about Christmas and the upcoming break from school - also the Evil Twin will be off for an extended time. His last day at work is December 18 and he goes back on January 4.
Buddy's last day of school is December 22 and I think he goes back also on the 4th...Not sure, I'll have to check the calendar again.
What all that means for me is that I'll still be getting up early (Sissy is an early bird), but not AS early and I won't have to be packing any lunches!
I'm also a bit nervous that I've forgotten something or won't have everything done by Christmas, but judging from how S-L-O-W the days have been going recently, I should have plenty of time to get it all finished.
I'm already finished with all the shopping and the tree is up and decorated. That just leaves Christmas cards, getting a pic of the kids for the cards and getting my nieces' gifts packed up to ship.
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can! :-)
When I went to Target yesterday, one goal was to find a new tree topper. The one we had been using was an old world style Santa that was actually meant for a mini tree.
I was looking for something similar to this:
But, ended up with this:
Now, I hear the collective gasp out there as you say in your heads, "Good Lord, ETW, what were you thinking?"
I know! But it was the only silver star they had and for $4.99 we can use it for at least this year until I find what I really want. Besides, it doesn't look so hideous when the lights are on. It makes the tree lots more bright and twinkly! It also has a sort of 1960s kitschy feel and that's always a plus in my book.
Besides, I don't judge your tacky decor, but if you'd like to tell me about your ugliest holiday decoration, I will, indeed, laugh along with you.
