As we all know, this Barefoot Gardener really goes all out when decorating for the holiday season.
This year, I just can't seem to get excited about it. I would like to blame it on the argument that Mr. Barefoot and I had on Thanksgiving (the same one we have every year) over how to decorate and what belongs where, but....
The truth is that I just can't bring myself to care this year. Well, that isn't true either. The thing is, I am irritated by it this year. Maybe it's because my Barefoot wallet is suffering from malnutrition this year, maybe it's the annoying holiday commercials on the TV that started weeks ago. I dunno.
I put the decorations back in the garage today. Really. I put up one tree, some garland, set up a tree in the kitchen for the Sprouts to decorate, let Big Sprout deal with her tree, and still have Little Sprout's Ducky Tree sitting in the living room to be moved to her room...... that's it. Oh, and I set up the snow village. Well, part of it anyway.
I guess when I write it out like that, I did a lot. But compared to what I normally do, this is small potatoes.
I just want the season to be over, already.
I tried going into one of the local stores the other day, and there were so many people there! I hate that part of the season, even on my best years. Really, where are these folks the rest of the year, and why aren't they there now?! Why do they have to get into my space?
Ugh. I give up.
I am going to crawl into bed.... wake me the first week of January.....
