Who's A Humbug?

Ok, so there's been a fresh cut Christmas tree in my living room for close to a week now. It has a tree skirt at the bottom (which needs to be ironed before anyone actually sees it) and an angel on the top (yeah, I know that should go on last; tough). That's it. I've bought lights to put on it, but so far I've lacked the motivation to start the tedious process of winding them around the tree. I have ornaments (still in boxes), but I haven't purchased any garland yet. I'm not taking any bets as to whether or not there will still be garland available in the stores by the time I get to the point where I need it.

Christmas seems to sneak up on me every year. I'm finding it hard to comprehend that the Big Day is just a little over 2 weeks away. I haven't done any baking yet, and I might not. I still have some shopping to do, and I still don't know for certain what I'm doing on Christmas Day (though it's sure to involve family in some way, shape or form).

Underneath it all, I'm not sure that I care that much. It'll all get done. Or not. In the long run, what difference does it make?

I feel ya sister...I am supposed to start tonight, but frankly, I'd like to just skip it all this year and maybe go to a quiet tropical island until it's all over.

Then again, I say that every year.

Oh Darling, I so agree with the both of you, Christmas belongs in the suburbs. I am so NOT into the holiday season, it gives me searing gas pains!

Pax-
Looks like we both stepped up to the plate! Your photos look great. Hope to see the actual decos!

Miss Magnolia-
I managed to live up to my suburban roots this year; the tree is done! It gets harder every year to keep it going, though. Think maybe next year I'll just put out a little ceramic plug-in tree...

Joe-
Well, it's done. I'm in the season for '06, at any rate!
