dh and i are polar opposites.
he looooooves to decorate the outside of our house for Christmas- i think he's competing with our next door neighbor.
as for me, i could not care less what the outside looks like.
i enjoy decorating inside and even keep some of the lights up year-round.
as for our cat, so far has not been a problem.
the reason being, my male shepherd and female bassett, love to pretend to attack her whenever she comes downstairs. so she just runs back upstairs.
i can't wait to put the tree up, with all my red Christmas lights.
i bought them at such a ridiculously low price and didn't even know where i'd use them. (who uses red lights, unless you're looking for business???)
but once i put them on the tree, dang, they looked lovely.
and this year i bought commercial-quality, gold paper to wrap the gifts.
i bought 2 500-yd rolls from a person who owns his business and sells to companies. this paper is thick.
then i bought on ebay, (10)100-yd rolls of white organza (or maybe it's tulle....it's see-through) wired ribbon with metallic trim in irridescent, silver, gold, green, red...from 1/2 inch wide to 3" wide.
alot of ribbon.
but it looks beautiful wrapped around the gold.
even dh loves it....and he never loves anything i buy!
that's because i have taste and he doesn't (no winkies here...)
i'm drinking one of those 'energy drinks'-"no fear" it's called.
and can you tell it gives me energy?
thanks for letting me ramble.
