Holiday Decorating 101


You varmints who are breaking the cardinal rule of the holidays...Stop it NOW!

I ask you, would you put up Easter decor before Valentine's Day? Would you put up Halloween decorations before Independence Day? Why...WHY then do you think it is OK to *squash* Thanksgiving by putting up Christmas lights? (I am not speaking to those who leave your Christmas lights up all year long, you are in a class of your own...that's a completely different topic of ranting!)

Thanksgiving is a lovely holiday, don't wish it away. If you must put up decorations...hang pilgrims, hang turkeys. I do mean this in the sense of decorating, I would never encourage anyone to really *hang* a pilgrim or a turkey. I understand it is much more efficient to just cut their heads off...the turkey, that is, not the pilgrim. But if you must kill a pilgrim, I think something like chicken pox would do the trick, or you could just show them the condition of the country that they founded and they would probably just die of a heart attack.

So in the spirit of rushing things along...Has anyone thought about a New Year's Resolution? I'd like to hear what your goals for 2009 are.

Enjoying the extra sleep...NOT!

Well, it is 3:30-ish (my blog clock is never correct) and I am up with a little one. Sydney-pooh is not feeling well.

She's stuffy and I know she must be hungry, but it's hard to nurse when you can't breath thru your nose...I'm sure. Her and I have been up for several hours and she is just now dozing off. I feel sorry for babies when they're sick! It must be horrible to have a sore throat, upset stomach, headache...what-have-you... and not be able to explain what hurts!

And it must be the worst feeling on earth to have your snot sucked out with a bulb syringe! I call them booger-snatcher. I'm sure it must feel like your brain is being extracted from your head thru your nose! I asked my husband if I could use the booger-snatcher on him so that he could explain to me what it felt like...he declined my request. I thought about trying to use it on myself just for the experience, but I declined my request also. Colton loves the booger-snatcher! But he can't tell me what it feels like yet, and I don't think it's all that normal to *like* the booger-snatcher anyway, so his opinion wouldn't count. Weird little kid! I mean who *likes* the booger-snatcher?

By the way, although I have learned to successfully post videos, I STILL cannot figure out how to post pictures...I am so frustrated! Posting pictures should be way easier than posting videos. It's like my picture option doesn't work. If I don't get this figured out soon, I am going to change to a new blog site.

I am sad that I won't be able to go to church today, but with Sydel not feeling well, I think she would be miserable and probably very fussy in church. AND...neither of us have had much sleep so we most likely will stay home and I'll have to watch the sermon from the website. You should check it out too... Living Water Church.
