It's after Thanksgiving now and a lot of folks are thinking about decorating for Christmas.
Shoot, scratch that- a lot of people have already decorated. I saw tons of houses that had all their outdoor decorations up before Thanksgiving Day.
I typically wait until December 1st to put up our tree and allow Tim to put his beloved inflatables in the front yard. It serves a two-fold purpose: 1.) We continue to use less power until all those lights end up getting plugged in and 2.) I can procrastinate.
Maybe I am crazy, I just prefer to wait until December gets here to start worrying about Christmas- the Most Stressful Time of the Year.
My goal this year is to curb any impulse to buy new decorations. Every year we end up with more and more crap to put out! Perhaps it is time to retire some of the old decorations anyway.
ETA: I came home from work, guess what was greeting me from the front yard? All three of Tim's inflatables. "Well it was warm, I thought it would be easier to get them up now." Bah humbug.
