So, it is about that time of year again, can you guess what time that is? If you said Christmas, you got that right. No secret there. I personally like to call it Yule or Yuletide (it’s a European thing).
So, I am currently hanging up some decorations in my home and dealing with beads. Not just any beads but 100 feet of beads. They are green and very pretty. I also have them in gold and red. I have had lights up and our mini 3 foot tree up for a few weeks now. Please, no judging, I have a 5 year old and where we live, Thanksgiving was back in October.
I hung up some garland from the ceiling last night, which I could totally still adjust, as it seems off to me. Plus Jody asked me to put some silver garland up in her room. Okay, back to the beads though. So all together, I have 300 feet of fucking beads. I have this one spot between my living room and kitchen where I usually hang the red ones but I decided to do something a little different this year. I first did the gold but after I decided to take it down and do the green instead and possibly the red. But man oh man, I forgot how time consuming this can be. Not enough that we pretty much had a blizzard yesterday and I still need to go out eventually here and do some shoveling, but these beads can literally go to hell.
I know, I know, you are all asking yourselves, “well why the fuck are you doing it then?” You want to know why? Because once I am done, it looks fucking sweet. Plus it is worth it in the end and it is always the discussion of the house when we have visitors. And if I ever need to vent and let off some steam, well shit, that’s why I have y’all to bitch about it to regardless of who reads this or not.
When do you start decorating for the holidays? Do you go all out like some of those extreme folk and spend thousands on lights and shit? How much time do you put in? Do you do it all in one day or divide it throughout a certain time? I am only asking out of curiosity.
But I should get back to it so, talk soon.
P.S. I present to you the famous beads.
