Okay, don't anyone fall over...
I let my husband talk me into a Christmas tree this year.
Now, before you raise your eyebrows and go, "Oh gee, look, a scrooge," let me explain some of the reasons why Christmases have come and gone and this family has failed to have a tree.
2) we don't entertain here
3) cats. As in plural
4) we don't even open presents here--we always spend Christmas as his parents house.
5) cats. shiny things.
I could list cats several more times because... well, today's December 4th. Means I have three weeks of putting up the tree. Every morning, every evening. Over and over and over. Because unless I do what I did the last time we had a tree--hide it in my office with the door closed (oh, yeah, that's holiday spirit) the cats are going to wait until I walk outta here at 8:50am and then they're gonna have more fun than a barrel of drunk monkeys.
Just wait. Hmmmmm. I'm thinking I'll have plenty to blog about in the days to come.
On a side note, I didn't get an email today advising that the-powers-that-be have changed my cover for WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES... again. I do, however, find it mildly amusing that I have cover #1 on MY website. The coming soon page of Ellora's Cave has version 2. And my previous blog is the latest cover. (You'll have to scroll down cuz I don't know how to link to a previous post and it's 9pm Sunday night and I just put up a Christmas tree, excuse ME for being lazy :P) The census is the last one is the best--it's certainly the hottest, but I'm about equal on both of them. Who cares, anyway. Aren't we supposed to keep from judging a book by its cover? *grin*
My daughter made the paper again. (I blogged about this previously also, so you'll have to scroll down again.) Just a picture again (hmmm, her name wasn't listed either time...) taken at the same Harry Potter gathering at a local church. This time she has a wonderfully excited look on her face. She swears its because she had just eaten a Vomit flavored Bernie Botts jelly bean. Oh yum. (shudder)
Well, that's a weekend wrap up for me. How'd you do?
