As you can see, the spirit found me!
I don't know what is different about this year from the previous 3 but I'm so ready to decorate and go shopping and find neat-o gifts and stuff.
Of course, the odds of 'neat-o' gifts is slim because we all shop in the same hemisphere so, not sure how we can surprise each other.
But screw it, I'm feeling the spirit. Even wanted to put up our tree (we have a fake blue spruce with snow on it) but then remembered I really, really, really want to paint the living room before I spend another Christmas in an off burgundy room. It's hideous and I've been living with it for 3 years.
Thing is, Bob wants me to remove all trim since one day (ONE DAY) we'll be replacing it all.
Did I mention the house has been trimless in areas for 3 years?
Like I said, screw it. I'll take the damn trim off as long as I don't have to have bing cherry walls anymore.
On another note, this template was a bitch to put on. Would I love to have my widgets back? Yeah. But then I can't really make out how the template is created and changes are terrifically bad.
Why are there not more clean line Christmas Layouts (that's the new term)?
Anyways, let's just say doing this template almost sucked the spirit right out of me!
I wanted to put up a countdown ticker like C2 does but I'm not sure I'm up to fiddling with the damn template again.
You know, I swear a lot for a person donning the Christmas Spirit.
But then, you all wouldn't recognize me if I was all pussified.
It's a word.
Update on Emma - she's huge, her fur is glorious and she's one happy kitty. Bad news is she has to go to the vet for the day tomorrow so they can create a baseline on her diabetes. (then she comes home for another week and then back in for a day and so on)
She's so going to hate me tomorrow.
Course, I think the vet may have to create a stress baseline for me. I'm not willing to lose another limb just before Christmas!
I'm figuring 200 bucks just for tomorrow.
*deep breath in*
Feeling the Spirit dangit!
