Update - Christmas is over

I am patting my own back. I - yes me - the one typing as we speak - got every piece of that Christmas tree BACK IN THE BOX! I was doubted, my strength and abilities, and I believed all of it. But I've successfully squished, bubble wrapped (by the way - I heard on the radio it's National Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. So drop what you're doing and go appreciate you some bubble wrap right now), hog tied, and fenagled those branches back into that ridiculously tiny box. It can be done.

I don't know that I'll ever want to do it again, so this may have been the last year we ever have a Christmas tree. At least we got pictures of Noelle in front of it so we'll have proof later on when she asks us why she's the only kid in class without a tree. Maybe next year I'll just hang one of those pictures down from the ceiling in the place where the tree would be.

Yes I know. I'm all talk. We'll have the tree and this conversation all over again next year. Until then I think I'm entitled to some bragging.

Merry Groundhog Day

In case anyone is wondering, yes - the Christmas tree is still up in the living room. It's been de-balled and decapitated, various pieces are scattered around, but the bottom level of the 3 part tree is still holding on for dear fake life. Maybe if we move the couch over no one will notice - it's pretty short. Then we won't have to try to get it back in the darned box. Hmmmm.....I wonder if anyone has ever taken pictures in front of the Easter Tree. ??

Why do I have a blog? As soon as I registered I couldn't think of anything to say. Like when I sit down and type ebay into my browser. Can't think of one single thing to look at. There are millions and millions of things on there, but I can't think of the name of anything on the planet earth.

I could put some pictures on here for all to see. Except that I can't figure out how to make them do anything but show those annoying little red x's. You know, the one's that let everyone know that you can't figure out how to post your pictures.

I guess I'll just say the things I know today:
M&Ms are good.
Paperclips with those little ridgy things are bad.

I thought it would be time to go after all of that. Not so, I still have an hour and 13 minutes left to sit in this chair. Yippee.

Hey look at that. I had a couple of things to say, however meaningless.

Not sure if I'll use this thing or not. I guess we shall see...
