I must be feeling better because yesterday I re-arranged my mess of a living room, put up curtains for the first time in three years and hung some new Christmas lights. The Mister and I are too old and wobbly to be climbing around putting up outside lights anymore so this is it. I had shoved all the boxes into one corner and finally had a bit of floor space and a corner that kinda looks like a living room-for now. When we start putting the new flooring in the kitchen/dining area it will all have to come back but for now I will have space for a tree-on the 16th. I never put one up until my birthday or the first snow. Whichever comes first. I'm betting on the 16th but I would love to be wrong.
