I am really, really cranky today. It all started because I woke up at 6:45 am instead of 6 am like I had planned. I was late getting to Bartlesville to run some errands and pick up a few things. I could not find anything I was looking for. Wee One was a HUGE brat, it was my fault I took him. I should have just packed off his little not-minding-bratty ass to daycare for the day but I did not. It is cold and I am sooooo sick of the snow. There were people everywhere in B-ville, even in this damn snow. Then to top it all off, when I went to pick up my ink cartridges from my printer that were being filled, it cost me $10 more than normal, something about Dell-grrrrrrrr.
Saturday morning we had ‘ice fog’. I took this picture about 7:15 am of Scooter. In a couple of spots, the tips of his fur were white with ice, so were his eyelashes.
Our Christmas tree looks a lot better this year. The lighted star at the top of the tree did not show up too well in the picture.
When I have to assemble it, it looks like Charlie Brown’s sad, little, Christmas tree.
It is not the best quality artificial tree, but my family is attached to it. I have no idea why. So instead of buying a new, prettier one…each year we put up this one.
Nearly every single one of our ornaments has a story behind it. I have many homemade one’s from Son #1. Since I did not have any homemade ones from Wee One, we made one yesterday. Wee One thought that was cool. He hung it on the tree where he can look at it.
My favorite ornaments the pine cones, a ceramic horse that was fashioned after Scooter, and the 2 ornaments I had custom made with each one of the boys names engraved.
I am still not feeling the least bit festive……
I am ready for the thaw…..maybe by Tuesday or Wednesday it’ll be 40 degrees, yippeeeee
This is going to be a busy week.
I’ll be around to catch up on my reading when I get a chance or when I am not feeling so gawddamned irritable.
