Isn't Tuesday the best?
It's the one day you can rationalize your RaNDoM away!
Go see The Un Mom!  She started it!

* True feelings revealed by the hubs as he hung the lights on the Christmas tree.

"I liked the days when you dragged out the ladder, straddled it while in a short skirt and tights, swore up a blue streak, put the lights on the tree by yourself and I was no where to be found."
Yeah - somehow, everyone enjoyed those days....except me!

Things I've learned this holiday season -

* FACT: During the Christmas season, more than 3 billion Christmas cards are sent - NONE of them are coming from my house this year.

* When you are hanging up GLASS beaded garland on the tree- don't just PULL HARDER.
*You should probably wear non slip, non cute shoes when on a 12 foot ladder. Gold flats aren't a very good idea.

*When you touch something that has glitter on it, don't touch your clothes, or your face, or your keyboard.
Just don't touch anything!

* Don't play with guns.

What?  What are you saying?  Guns don't have anything to do with the holidays?

Apparently guns DO have to do with Christmas; my husband asked for a shotgun!

Hey, I got a great little 38 last Christmas! It helps to justify it if you saw a mountain lion on your property in the summer before! Scary!

I want a red rider bb gun with a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time.

Those are really cute shoes. Perfectly understandable why you would want to wear them.

Thanks for the tips - I think when I drag the Christmas tree out of the shed and set it up...by myself...that I'll not wear the cute non-skid-proof shoes I had planned to wear. Or the short skirt with tights. But I will probably be swearing up a storm. ;)

Gina... please don't... you'll shoot your eye out.

And I'm not sending out any cards either... I'm just a rebel like that. But trust me when I say it feels like I'll be delivering all 3 million of them myself.

No Christmas cards from my house either. It just dawned on me this year. I have a blog now, I don't need to repeat everything in a Christmas card. So liberating!

I can always count on reading your blog to get a good laugh! Who knew guns and Christmas goes together! LOL!

Sandra said...

Funny! I love the picture of your cute little ballet flat on the ladder. Nice touch! I appreciate a woman who knows a blog worthy photo op!

Maybe if you put a little glitter on your gun?

When you have glitter on your hands it doesn't matter if you freeze up and don't move a muscle... Glitter still manages to find its way all over your clothes, face, hair and anything else within a 1 mile radius..!

Ya know what my mind was thinking as I was reading the short skirt bit?...that'd he would say he was happy to be around for that part. Lol.

Then the gun. Huh, okay, that's all kinds of weird. Just saying!
