The Christmas Season is Officially Underway

I have packed up all my Thanksgiving and fall themed decorations and am in the process of dusting and vacuuming. Then I will begin the monumental task of crawling under the house in our mini basement and taking out the Christmas boxes. I think I have about 30 of them. They haven't been out in about 4 years. We were not at home the other years so I didn't decorate. We need to get new outside lights since the last time we used ours they had sections that were dead. Now with the new LED lights you can plug in a really large amount of strings together and they don't overload the circuit. I was checking the ads in the newspaper and Home Depot has a pretty good deal on them. Now all I have to do is to get DH up out of his recliner and get him moving so I can have some help with this job. He was playing WII Golf last time I looked in the livingroom. Men!! Little boys in a bigger package. Well he is moving around now so I guess now is the time. By the way, I didn't go shopping today, YET. I went to the gym and saw lots of cars on the road and the parking lots were all full at the stores I passed. Maybe around dinner time would be a good time. All the early birds will be home by then. Well, better go check on him.

I started putting up my Christmas decorations today but at a slower pace. I am going to try and do a little more tomorrow. I seem to get so tired now with the headaches and the medicine I am taking. Have a great weekend. Hugs

You are a superwoman! Christmas decorations and a christmas themed blog background? You go girl! We are going away for Christmas this year so the only "decorating" I am doing is a wreath :)
