It's already December 2nd--the kids opened the door on our big wood advent calendar this morning and found treats inside, and I panicked. It's December 2nd! I need to relish each and every day, because this month only comes once a year!

The trees are all lit, the lights are up, there's frost on the ground this morning (my parents have twelve inches of snow--har har) and it feels like Christmas. And despite all the scary stuff going on in the world, I am tuning it out and determined to be festive. For a while, anyway.

Maybe I am like a kid in Disneyworld--Christmas just helps me suspend my jaded cynical ways for a little while--and enjoy the atmosphere. Is that a crime? ;-)

Thing One's first basketball game is Saturday night--and I mean night--at 8pm. That kind of stinks, hopefully her Saturday games will be during the day from here on out.

My kids are begging me to take them to buy ECLIPSE at Midnight--I mean, really? All they're going to do is go straight to bed afterwards. It's not like they are going to stay up and watch it. I have a better plan: go to sleep, sleep in, and leisurely stroll into Target the next morning at 11-ish and choose from the GINORMOUS display of ECLIPSE dvds.

I like my plan MUCH better.

I feel like I'm behind the beat in the decorating, although it's fun getting everything spiffed up for the holidays.
