Assorted Christmas Woes

It's been a mixed bag of things going on lately. Of course, getting ready for Christmas has been the main thing. We bought an artificial tree for the townhouse. We didn't have a tree last year, so this was the first run-through. It became very clear I have way too many decorations. I gave a bunch of stuff to my sister, and will probably give more away. The cats love the tree, especially LOKi. I got a tree skirt for the first time, but I should have thought that through a little better. It's velvet, and so far, it has yet to spend even a complete hour under the tree. It's covered in cat hair that I can't remove, and it's usually in the middle of the living room with LOKi hiding under it. It wasn't supposed to be a toy.
Then there are the Christmas cards, and "The Letter." Yes, I have resorted to writing a computer letter. It's actually pretty sad, because we don't do much. I end up writing a bunch of filler material, and adding a couple of pictures. Then there always a bunch of missing addresses. For some reason, I am apparently unable to write addresses down in safe places. That results in cards that are in a holding pattern until I can get the addresses, or Christmas is over, and darn it, it's too embarrassing to mail them.
Yup, Merry Christmas. Or Happy Holidays (isn't that what you are supposed to say now so you don't offend anyone?)

Merry Kwanzakahmas!

I know what will cheer you up. Cut out pictures of random bunches of kids from magazines and put them into your cards and write "Look what we made this year!". Then nothing else need ever be said.

Merry Christmas to you too! LOKi sounds so adorable.

Save all your addresses in your computer, you won't lose them that way. Unless your PC crashes, of course. :-)

kara- Happy Hoohahs to you too! I don't want any children, not even make-believe ones. How grinchy, huh?

Lizza- Putting all the addresses on the computer would mean gathering them all up and actually entering them. I'm not sure if I'm ready for that kind of commitment...
