I work in education which means I get about two weeks off for Christmas each year. I take full advantage of that and try to head home as quickly as possible to have enough time to see all my family and friends.
As a result, I have to get my Christmas decorations up as early as possible or I’m just not here long enough to enjoy them. So last Friday, as I was still digesting turkey I got out the ornaments and lights. I am renting my apartment so I can’t do as much as I want, but I make it as festive as possible.
While she hasn’t caused any problems yet, there is one other resident of this apartment who also seems to be really enjoying the decorations. I’ve got my eye on her.
I have the outfits picked out and will be taking my annual Christmas picture shortly. If I don’t have your address and you would like a card, please send me an e-mail with your mailing address. You can just click on the “Contact Me” link over to the right (or use sara [at] diabetesdaily [dot] com). I ran out of time and unfortunately skipped last year, but here was the picture from two years ago. Don’t let their faces fool you, Bes and Rose love this tradition as much as I do.
(The title of this post comes from this song – which I think is beautiful even if you don’t like country as much as I do!)
