If you know me then you know how truly saddened I am to not have my apartment looking like the North Pole. I am just going to have to wear my moose shorts, holiday thermals, and Santa’s Land shirt to bed every night so I really feel like I am involved in the preparations for Santa’s arrival. This photo was taken before I knew I couldn’t decorate – I am wearing half of my holiday outfit and coincidentally pretending I’m happy in my crowded hideous non-festive kitchen. Wahhhh – I am going to go have a pity party in my bed. Goodnight.
The Bears are having a Charlie Brown Christmas this year. Granted our tree is a little fatter than Chuck’s, it is still just as short and pitiful. I had to BEG Mr. Bear to put up a tree without all of our ornaments. All of our Christmas decorations are at Mr. Bear’s dad’s house and it is just too much for us to unpack the SIX boxes of magical winter wonderland paraphanalia I have collected over the years when we are going to be gone for ten days and then moving. It is so sad. Especially because I had a wedding shower in CT where everyone brought us an ornament for our first Christmas – and everything is still in CT waiting for us to pick it up and drive it to our new place in MD.
