Tis the season...

I know I know I know but it is not even Thanksgiving yet and my new neighbors across the street spent yesterday decorating their house. The guy down the street already has those inflatable character and snow globe things up. It seems that this decorating madness starts earlier and earlier every year. I just don't seem to have that Holiday Spirit yet this year, maybe it is because all we've been through, or just burn out since seeing all the decorations out in the stores since late September.

I did make a fabric wreath for our front door, (I am such a crafting nerd, most of the decorations that I have I made). I am kind of bummed that I won't be able to afford to go to my craft class this year. But I'd rather have my husband's health over a new trinket. I just know that my girls will soon be on my case to get our stuff up. I usually start our decorating the day after Thanksgiving, but like I said earlier my heart is just not in it this year. But I know I need to get moving if I want to get the girls photo cards done. I usually take their picture in front of the tree then order the cards.

Just had a phone call few minutes ago from my sister. I swear I need to reserve a nice padded room in the funny farm for a weekend. My sister is expecting a baby in March. We are planning on her shower for January. Up until now her mother in law has been insistent on the fact that she will be having her own shower for Julie for "her side" of the family. Reason being that she does not get along that well with my mother or step mother. Now out of the blue she wants to combine the parties which means the place we were planning on having her shower is now to small to accommodate the group. I just feel like calling this woman up and telling her too freaking bad. You were the one who made a big stink about throwing your own shower for your family. Live with your decision you dumb cow. I hope that this means that she will be sending some cash our way for the party. She wants us to have the party at a local country club umm there is no way that I can afford to go in and equal share on that and what I can give will not amount to much there.

Did I mention that I really don't like my brother in law's side of the family? The only one I do like out of that lot is my brother in law.

Around here, people start decorating outside before the winter sets in. We haven't gotten around to it yet because Kent has been truck driving so much and because we usually put lights on the front of the house but we want to replace the gutters first. We may not get around to it at all this year outside, but I am kind of looking forward to deco the inside. :-)
It's understandable that you are not in the mood with all that you have been threw.
Maybe you and the girls can make some new deco's this year. I cherish the deco's that Ian makes and I know you do too.
Good luck with the baby shower.
