DAYS UNTIL I GET PRESENTS

You know what? There are only 99 days until Christmas! Excited? I know me too! Wait, what was that? Oh, I just heard the collective moans of everyone that just read that first sentence. Sorry, it’s just my favorite time of year mostly because there are only 71 days until I get to staple up the Christmas light up around the front porch and hang the garland around the windows, much to Fuzz’s chagrin. Last year I used the old style “screw in” type of lights on the house to go with a retro feel. Well, let’s just say that the OCD in Fuzz flared up and the fear of the house burning down from the holiday decorations over-powered him. It was an obsessive Christmas. This year it’s a LED theme. Nice and safe, yep because LED light do not start fires. Nope.


I’m probably just happy because for the first time in my selfish little life we have started to buy presents now, instead of trying to rush around and buy everything last minute and on one credit card bill. Yes, I am finally an adult. Also what I really want for Christmas is a new high end mattress. God I’m not an adult I’m just old.

So, 99 days until Christmas. And if you’re Jewish you only have 77 days until Jewish Christmas.

I can't wait for you to open your present, you are going to luv it, or else. And I thought Fuzz said you could launch Christmas on all Hallows eve?

It's coming up fast! Last year I purchased a lot of new decorations for my tree when everything went 75% off. I'm excited to decorate it! It's my favorite time of year too.

Thanks for remembering us Stevie :)

Meanwhile being in an inter faith relationship means I get both holidays - woo hoo !!!

Listen, Hanukkah Harry only brings us socks, underwear and gelt. We don't get mattresses.

It's not as glamourous as it sounds.

oh and please, you TOTALLY stole the '99' idea from me! :)

Personally, I save all of my Holiday cheer for Thanksgiving, the time of turkey, pie and D'Alton. Then it's only 37 days of igonoring holidays until January 2nd when life returns to normal. fc

Ok, mister. Strike one.

I detest Xmas. I hate the decorations, the way stores push the holiday to before hallowe'en, the stress of finding "the perfect gift".

Uggh.

I cannot WAIT for 1/2/11
