Christmas on my mind

Christmas. I love it! I love everything about Christmas! The music, the smells, the decorations, the music, gift giving, shopping, the music and of course the music! My girls are JUST like me. But my husband, well, he is almost the proverbial scrooge. He claims to like Christmas but he despises Christmas music. He likes the greenery but finds the lights silly. He cannot stand shopping, unless it is online and he really, really HATES the music! He loves the meal I make, the goodies and he loves spending the day here at home with our girls, but he is not crazy about Christmas like the rest of us. In fact, I had to secure a deal with him EARLY into our marriage. Our first Christmas together he came home around this time (early to mid November) and I was cheerily singing and cleaning to Christmas music. Then and there we learned our differences. We came up with a compromise, if I can refrain from playing or singing Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving, then the day after through Christmas I can listen to it AS MUCH AS I WANT!!!! I am not thrilled with the deal, but I will take it and I keep it! But to try and squeeze in some Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving I've got craft fairs! Tomorrow, there are not 1, not 2 but THREE all within a mile of our house! I cannot wait! Let the festivities begin!!!!!!

Christmas yes, but I like the music,the programs, Christmas Eve services but not the ads, commercials,
and all that stuff.
Both cataracts are off now just drops, drops and more drops daily.
One more follow up visit.
Thanks for all the pictures and the
activities of the girls. Sure wish
we could see them more often. Any more
treatments on the nose? I know you will be glad for 2009 to end.
Hug the girls for me and tell them I love them dearly.

I have already decorated an put up me tree. I am into it too! Ernie says it is too early, but he let me do it (of course I told him I would even if he didn't carry the stuff up, I would have just hurt my back doing it...)
