It’s been a day…

I’m so very not in the holiday spirit. Every year, in fact, I get to be more and more of a grump about the holidays. I don’t even know what to write here that won’t make you all think I am a horrible person. Therefore, I will leave it at that. I am sure you can imagine the rest. If not, let’s go have coffee and Caribou and we can discuss it all over a nice vanilla latte. That sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Our neighbors that had the Halloween Tree in their front window? (If I haven’t mentioned them here, well, they had a Halloween Tree. Seriously.) Now they have THREE full size Christmas trees in the front window. They like the holidays.

I have to write a recap of my year for my grandmother-in-law (it’s all she wants for Christmas from each member of the family; cute, right? not today). I, of course, put it off until the last possible moment and, of course, this week I am crabbier and grumpier than I have been in a LONG time. How do I write about my year (which was really quite lovely) when I am feeling like a giant seething ball of angsty-ness?

I blame the president. and his spies. oh, and the drilling in ANWR people. and the people who think it’s no big deal that our president lied (misspoke, misunderstood, padded the truth a bit, insert your favorite euphemism for lying here) about a lot of things that are a much bigger deal than girls and what he did, or didn’t do, with them. oh, and the people who think it is ok for the president to redefine the separation of powers. (if that doesn’t get me on somebody’s list, I don’t know what will…)

    I’m with you one hundred percent- if you’re on somebody’s list- I want to be on that list too. What the president did (30 times mind you) is not okay.
    ps- I’m with you on the grumpy thing too. Maybe tomorrow will be better. I didn’t get my EA last night.

    I totally agree, too. Christmas sucks. I’d be much happier if we just had Halloween twice.

    The worst thing about being mad at the President is that you can’t even egg his house. You get in a LOT of trouble.

    I dont understand people who decorate. I managed to escape Thanksgiving at home without a Christmas tree for my apt but I did get an ISU stocking, which has since adorned the top of my couch where I put it the night I got back. The way I see it, it’s enough work just keeping your place clean and livable. I’ve only got so much free time to try to do nothing, I can’t afford to spend it decorating w/ things I’ll just have to take down later. But some would say I’m a party pooper.

    I will say that I do prefer Christmas to Halloween b/c Christmas is near New Year’s and that means “More days off” (compared to none for Halloween). Woot for days off. And I prefer white chocolate mochas.

    Hi Kim, it’s Mom – you know the one that named you!!!!! It could be worse. I just met a young woman and her name is Kimber Lee!!! Or remember the mail – Kim Berley?
    Glad the job is going well.

    Love, MOM
