Did you notice what today is? Sadly, I'll bet most of you didn't. I know my husband knows. He might not have remembered it right away, but now that I bring it up....he knows the importance of the day.
You are looking at the date, April 25. You are wondering, "Is it an anniversary for something?" You are probably debating googling the date, just to see the importance in history. You will not find it....I don't think. I need to Google it and check, I guess.
No today is VERY important. Today is exactly 8 months until Christmas. Today is only 7 months before I decorate my house for Christmas.
Most of you think that I have flipped my lid. You think I'm out of groovy ideas to write about. You think I'm just filling this blog with a bunch of bull-pucky. I assure you, I'm not.
You can contact my hubby. He will tell you. I remind him OFTEN, throughout the year, how much longer until Christmas. Just think, it's been 4 months since Christmas. We are one third of the way there. ISN'T THAT EXCITING?
I know you think it's too soon. Whatever. Feel free to keep your opinions to "yerself" on this. My love of Christmas is so great that I celebrate AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. One month is simply NOT ENOUGH time for the holiday season.
So, here is a quick breakdown of the remainder of time before Christmas.
May - end of school (kinder graduation, Field Days, teacher appreciation, end of year parties),
June - 2 birthdays, Father's Day, vacation alone with my boy, swimming lessons, piano recitals
July - Independence Day, barbeques, swimming, going to the park
August - the start of school, PTO board meetings, the start of homework, my 16th wedding anniversary (hubba hubba)
September - the start of fall, the loss of 100+ degrees temp...and only maintaining 100 degrees temp
October - THE STATE FAIR OF THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS (a very big deal here), Halloween, temps in the 90s...finishing up water aerobics
November - Thanksgiving (which will take me a few weeks to plan the meal and be totally anal about who will fix what and which new item will be included on the menu)
December - Birthday, Christmas, music, homemade candies, cakes, goodies, gifts
DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN? We don't have much time. So, I ask you...what have you done to prepare for the holidays? I think I'll go work on my Christmas card list.
