What the heck happened to Thanksgiving?!!!
I mean seriously? I truly love Christmas. I do. I love everything about it. I am like a little kid on Christmas morning. I love watching my girls come out to see what is under the tree. I am a christmas stocking freak. I am. My stockings ROCK! I love to bake, to cook, to eat. I love decorating. I LOVE it all.
I also love love Thanksgiving. Especially Thanksgiving dinner. LOVE IT! Lady Di and I once had Thanksgiving in September because I just couldn't wait any longer. I think it was September might have been August. I was preggers with the OP and she had just had the JD Boy. Anyway I love the fall: the colors, the decorations, the season. THANKSGIVING!
So what is the problem?
The PROBLEM is this: Every year Thanksgiving gets shoved aside for Christmas! That's right. It is like the day after Halloween and all the fall decorations are gone! The stores explode with Christmas stuff.
It is ANNOYING! RIDICULOUS!
I mean, come on give it some time to just be Thanksgiving! THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!! A time for Thanks!
I saw the most adorable scarecrow in a store window and thought I will wait until after Halloween and come get it for my door. I went back to get it and IT WAS GONE along with everything Halloween and Thanksgiving and fall. I expected Halloween to be put away but all the fall stuff? I mean seriously it isn't even technically winter yet. At least one little corner should be designated fall still. Oh no - THE WHOLE STORE was CHRISTMAS. It's NOVEMBER people.
I am realist. I know that they need more than 25 days to sell Christmas stuff - all I am asking is to still keep some stuff out for Thanksgiving and fall. I don't think that's asking too much?
Maybe it is just me? I like to give each holiday it's own time. I decorate for Halloween on October 1st, Thanksgiving on November 1 and Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. Each Holiday is exclusive of each other. You won't see a snowman in or around my house in November. Just not going to happen.
Ok so I feel better. I ranted and raved a little..............or a lot!
Thanks for listening. Can you hear the irritation in my words? Ha.
Ok so maybe I have more thoughts like:
I am a little excited about New Moon. I hope it is better than Twilight. I hated the movie. Yes HATED. Loved the book.
I have some family drama and need some advice. Maybe I will ask for it tomorrow.
My floors stink. I thought I would love hard wood floors as opposed to my hard tile ones but I don't. I sweep ALL THE TIME. At least with my old ones you couldn't see the dirt.
I found some new candy that is divine. Oh my - is it DELISH. Almond Butter Crunch. Made here in Montana by two men. So so yummy. Don't worry I am going to share. I am. Soon. I promise. It's all part of a plan, a prize for one of our followers and commenters for just being you and being awesome. Soon. It is coming soon...........................
