it is december

Today the calendar changed pages.  Well, not by itself it didn't ... I helped it a little.  But either way, it be December today and I'm feeling a bit weird about it.  Rushed actually.

I've done my Christmas shopping because I'm weird like that.  I love to say, "YOU'VE ONLY HAD A YEAR" to everyone who is out on Christmas Eve doing the last-minute-dance ... and so, to be able to say that, I have to NOT be there with them.

Although I do like to go shopping then.  I get some great deals ... for me.   Wink, wink.

Anyway, it's December and the year is ticking by.  Literally.

I'm on top of everything ... got my Christmas cards bought, the house is decorated and I only have two more weeks of work before I'm off for the holidays.  I'm blessed to have AN ENTIRE WEEK off before Christ's actual birthday, too.  All of the stars are lining up nicely.

But something is amiss.

I came home from work last Saturday to find my house gorgeously decorated by my daughter and her friend.  It looks SO BEAUTIFUL and best of all, I didn't have to lift a finger.  I'm truly ready for the holidays.

But something is still amiss.

And I've just figured out what it is.


How could my daughter decorate my house so beautifully ... AND FORGET THE TREE????

Nary one of these anywhere in our house.  Not that I EVER had a tree look like this ... but still.

Heck, I'd even take one of these.  

Not a single one of these anywhere, either.


Actually, I'd prefer these presents, thank you.

We had this tree one year and my daughter was oh, so sad.  She said that was the saddest looking tree she'd ever seen.     Well, at least it WAS A TREE!!!!

Even the cat was unhappy.

Happy Easter, Y'all!
