My tree is up, not decorated, but up. I am all twitchy because there are decorations all over my front room, but can't muster the will to actually spend the time to put them on the tree. I am having serious holiday blahs.
The kids have put up a couple ornaments but even they lost interest.
Then I looked at the powder room where I am halfway though stripping the wall paper. I honestly believe that the previous owners used super glue to apply it. The steamer worked OK, but the solution of 1 part white vinegar to 1 part water works much better. Smelling like a pickle is just a fringe benefit.
I have the last bits to pick off of the big wall then the entire opposite wall to do. I may avoid it until I am forced to do it at gun point.
After I spent a couple hours forcing Dude to watch Pink Panther cartoons, I decided we would bake cookies! Exactly what I needed to be doing at 10:30am. I make very special oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They are very difficult and very yummy!!
First I start with a bag of Betty Crocker Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix, then I follow the directions.
They always turn out scrumptious even after we have eaten a large part of the dough.
Maybe this afternoon I will find some motivation to get the tree decorated or the wall paper stripped. Here is to hoping!!!
