It's called Icantdecorateworthcrap. It's pretty serious, it causes our house to never look like we really live there and all the holidays look like this:
instead of this.
Ok, I really don't want to look like this but I love this picture and I love that house because how "colorful" it is every Christmas. On a pointless side note, an old couple live here, I mean REALLY old. A couple of years ago, I past this house one December day and saw the couple outside, the old man was standing on the ladder while the old woman was holding it. It was adorable and scary all at the same time. Is it wrong that I'm not more politically correct and called them old man and old woman???
Anyway, back to my sickness. It actually really isn't a sickness, I know this is shocking, it's more of a fear of decorating badly. It's been exaggerated by the fact that I'm needing to replace my flooring, I'm wanting a reddish laminate flooring...not red but brownish/redish. I was starting to stress about it but thankfully, or unthankfully, It's on hold. We're gonna have to deal with our current flooring for a little while longer...or until Larry has a permanent job. It's giving me a reprieve from stressing about it so I can spend more time wringing my hands, pacing the floor, stress eating about money, jobs, kids and other life stresses.
On a positive note, I'm pretty close to being done with my Christmas shopping, I went grocery shopping this week, it was getting kind of scary around here because we had gone 4 days without peanut butter. I bought a new microwave. between no microwave and no peanut butter...it kind of felt like the Hunger Games. Thankfully we are all still alive. I got the Christmas decorations out, I've been getting Christmas cards...WOOHOO and thank you to those who sent us cards!!! By the way, you probably won't be getting one from us...sorry...Merry Christmas. To top off this week I fell in love with puff paint all over again!!!! Thanks Memzy!!!!
I'm super bummed that I missed Smart Remarks, I was all set right up to 5 minutes before it started then got pulled away for some very important business. It was totally bogus and un fun making but it's settled.
But for a super short version of my opinion about The Uglies, I liked it sort, if it had less of "You should be ashamed of yourself for being a consumer, not recycling more, using natural resources, driving cars, and other such crap"I would have liked it a lot more. It's just annoying. BUT besides that I like it, I don't like Shay...she's annoying and now that I'm reading pretties, she's even more annoying. Sara is now reading Uglies and LOVES it, she can't wait to read the next book, which means I need to finish it pretty soon.
I'm also making a new goal to update more but it may mean that my blog will be pretty bogus.
