Thanksgiving is over and done! Now Mr. Punxxi is obsessed with getting the place decorated for Christmas,as it is his very favorite time of the year.The outside is done, next he will start on the inside, but maybe I can hold him off a couple of weeks(I won't hold my breath on that one tho)It wouldn't be so bad if he would do it in moderation. He should have been born in Victorian times because he, like they, think that every square inch has to be covered in some glitzy crap. Me, I am more of a minimalist type, and have claustrophobia.. it starts getting to me after awhile. I am the one who starts undecorating as soon as I can, although I usually let it stay up until the 1st...I think he'd let it stay up til April if he could get away with it. He has all these Dept 56 things he sets out, last year the cats killed London Bridge( aw gee whiz, me crusty lil heart is broke). We use to live in a 3 story house, which meant we had a tree on every floor. We only have one story in this house,but I am planning on a 2 story for the next one, but it won't be an open floor plan, like the 3 story was. Damn, I sound really whiney, but I really am not, there are just a couple of things that drive me nuts, one of which is overdoing the Christmas decorating. I have been trying to convince him for years that less is more because then you will notice the cool little things that are sitting around, but that he so overdoes it that most of it is lost in the glitzy stuff. Oh well, it's just once a year. Besides I know if I lived where kids actually came around at Halloween, I would decorate the house to death(ha).
